Batmobile - Arkham Knight
It's the friggin' Batmobile. The moment you pull off your first Batmobile-assisted takedown, you'll be in love. It can take ramps, run other cars off the road, and launch the Batman hundreds of yards into the air so that you can take to the skies and knock out some of those flying drones. Yes, the controls can be a little splashy, but hey, a little extra destruction is a-okay.
Scorpion - Halo 3
There is nothing more satisfying than turning your tank gun on an approaching Warthog, pulling the trigger and watching that concussive force send the smaller ride flying end over end. Come on. The Scorpion's raw power is perfect for giggle-inducing insanity.
Grand Theft Auto V - Merryweather Jeep
Ah, the Merryweather Jeep. It's difficult to obtain, requiring you to take down a squad of four well-armed mercenaries, but once you've got it, you're driving around in a pretty zippy and totally destruction-friendly jeep. This thing can take out just about any other vehicle in on the streets of Liberty City.
GT Citroen - Gran Turismo 5
This car was designed expressly for use in Gran Turismo 5, and because nerds are nerds and this car is just that cool, Citroen ended up actually building the thing for real. What's the point of all that design work if you're not going to make a real one, right?
