Which is your favourite 1990s supercar?

For those of you who are old enough to remember, what is your favourite supercar from the 1990s. For me it's the Lamborghini Diablo and in yellow. I have created a poll so please cast your votes. Feel free to mention any cars I've not listed. There's bound to be one or two more but these polls only allow a total of ten.

XJ220 for me, I know it had production issues etc but it turned out to be an absolutely stunning looking machine and if I ever can, I'd buy one.

Seen one go head to head at TopGear Live and it was immense the stuff it was still beating today.

Good choice, although the XJR15 should be on the list ....

The F40 could be on that list too .... although it was released in the 80's

Why no F50 on the list? The finest F car Ferrari ever made. More rounded than an F40 and more visceral than an Enzo.

Failing that I'd take the 993 turbo in that sky blue colour. Ridiculously fast (402 hp).

BMW 8 series, loved the look of them, not quite a supercar but was to me at the time, an old boss of mine had an 840 and I even managed to drive it once.
