depends what for. i love the thunder shadow, it has the best top speed. the hot rod coupe is best for straight line races ("go west" if you use the train lines, and "race for the plate")
PDPD special is decent in every race, but is too weak for my liking. Also, the carbon hawker and carbon GT concept are EXCELLENT cars.

Personally, I like the Hawker Solo, (it looks even cooler in Platinum Paint!) but I find that people generally use the same couple of cars - these are mostly: Hawker Solo, GT Flame, P12 Track Package & the Carbon Cars...
(Note: this "survery" is out of my most frequently played-with friends, as well as other people that have gotten pretty far in their game)

I've driven the P12 Track Package the most. It's the easiest to flat spin and do challenges/stunt runs with. It's a bit of a pansy when you get takedown junkies in your room with you though....
lately i've been driving the Carbon GT Concept though. It's just plain mean..... Even been doing pretty well in ranked races against the PCPD's with it....

I've found my Carbon GT Concept to be my most used out of all the cars that I have. It does stunts extremely well considering it's in the speed class. It doesn't really take much (not counting driving through the gas stations) to refill the boost meter.
Although, the downside to all the carbon cars is that when they are scratched up, their scratches look Green on the front side, but the green scratches look is never noticable from the back.
Agreed. Great car!

Hmmmmm interesting question.
At one time the Rai-Jin was my favorite, but then again I was one of the few that could legitimately change it's color before it was released to everyone. It was a hard car to master, but it can do anything - except stunt runs because the lack of boost is a real bind in a Stunt Run.
I love the toaster dearly. Toaster = Platinum Burnout Van. There's nothing quite so satisfying as performing the roller hoop at the airfield in the toaster and listening to the sounds of disbelief.
However, on balance, after many hundreds of hours of play, I have arrived at the conclusion that the very best car in the game, the car I always go back to for just general playing around and stunting, is the Cavalry. The first car you get is the best car you get. I can make every jump in the game, it can win races against most everything driven by the AI (the later races are very hard becuase the speed disparity is quite large), and it holds up well in Road Rage events. I love the Cavalry because more than anything it's about the driver wringning the most out of the car - it's truly a driver's car.
Home is free, but the drinks cost extra.

Alright, I'm nearly done, can you please let me be so I can concentrate on finishing this game for now?"

It seems to be, for most people, the Carbon GT Concept. But, also, most of those people say, it depends on your needs. I rarely drive the speed cars, as I like to be able to use my boost whenever I need it. Funny - I'm playing a speeding game and I don't like the speed cars... I love the stunt cars the best, I think, but I like the aggression cars too. I don't really like doing the stunt runs, though. Talk about a hypocrite, huh? Maybe someday I'll get around to completing the game. Not likely, though...
Right now, I like the GameStop car. Although the Best Buy Oval Racer is fast. (I don't have that many unlocked yet, I just got my A license!)
I wish the GameStop car was paintable, though...
To sum up, it depends on your needs, so we really can't tell you what the best car is unless you tell us what boost type. And even then, it's only our suggestion. Or our mixed suggestions.

Well, if you are talking non DLC cars
The carbon x12. I've done speed tests, and even though the stats say otherwise, while boosting this is the fastest car in the game. No contest. (NON DLC)
Tough one, though i'd go with the carbon hawker.
GENERAL PURPOSE (Cruising, takedowns, stunt, race)
Carbon GT Concept, hands down best all arounder. This puppy can do it all.
The carbon cars are hard to get for a reason, they are the best effing cars!!!
As for DLC cars its a close race between the GT Nighthawk, Annihilator Street Rod, Jansen P12 88 Special, and the Extreme Hotrod.
