Do you have the fastest car at work?

I was just curious to see how many people have the fastest/most powerful car at their workplace. As far as employees go, I have everyone beat, even though this 16 year old thinks his '94 Firebird is a challenge (yeah, he's got the 3.4....RUN!!)

If I was to look at the members cars though, damn.....Ferrari 360 Modena, Porsche 911 Turbo, Viper GTS, a couple C6's and C5's, SL600....I have no room to talk, just drool.

How about you guys/gals?

Well in the world of stock traders and brokers, I know a lot of people. I don't really work with any of them, but they're friends I have in the industry.

From what I can think of, a few of them own some nice cars -

Ferrari Enzo
Ferrari F450
V12 Vanquish
Lamborgini Marcielago (sp?)
Lamborgini Diablo
And of course some Vipers and Vettes

One guy I met once owned a Maserati, no clue what model but I do know it looked like a beautiful car.

I really think I do probably have the fastest car in the parking lot. I work at the headquarters of a family-owned grocery chain, so most cars in the lot are fairly modest. Even the CEO and his family don't drive anything fancier than BMWs. One of his sons has an M5 that's a few years old. There's also a guy in our IT department who's fond of Mustangs and has a previous-gen 390 bhp Roush. Oh--and just last week, I noticed that someone bought a Hemi Dodge Magnum.

But all things considered, I guess I'm the alpha dog. For now, anyway.

My office has over 130 employees. There are some employees that make over $500,000 a year. Being that it is a lumberyard most guys drive trucks. Jacked up diesels rule. No one understands the GTO. There is a girl that has an 04 Mustang GT, no competition there. Next closest is a shortbed 05 Hemi Dodge two wheel drive. He gets into the high 14's with it. It goes downhill from there rather quickly.
