Supreme performance and astonishing looks, there was only ever one contender for this award...

Maybe bedroom-wall posters are too often quoted as barometers of a supercar's desirability. But I am going to do it again. The editor of this magazine grew up with a poster of a Lamborghini Countach decorating his wall. So did I. His son now has a poster featuring a Pagani Zonda on his wall. So do I. And I'm not joking. I'm 42 years old, have two kids, a mortgage and eye bags like an elephant's nutsack, but I have a poster of a supercar on my wall. Not just any poster either. This one isn't particularly large and it's a bit creased from where I stuffed it in my bag to bring it home, but it features a beautifully executed, pencil design sketch of a Pagani Zonda and it's by Horacio Pagani. And it's signed by the man himself. Therein lies a clue: "the man himself".
