    What a terrible comparison! None of those cars, except the Jag and the Merc ever competed with this car; most aren't even from the same era! No one would be deciding between this and a V12 Vanquish! That's like saying, "should I get this Bentley Arnage T or the '98 S500?" I don't approve.<!-- Signature -->

    I only compared this car to another cars that have analog performances, i compared cars of which i think are similer segments, i know that the AM v12 cant be compared to this one because of itŽs cronology, but i didnŽt use the cronology as a criterion, i used different guides to make this comparison, such as max power(in this case i compared any car from 370 to 450 hp, except for the skyline in which i compared it using criterions such as max speed, acceleration 0-100kph, etc).
    Since you are such an honorable member of this page, i wonder if you could write ten cars which could compete against this one.
    PS. i think you should have in mind the f 456 GT and by Aston martin i believe that the 1996 v8 coupe would be better dont you think?

    this is never going to keep up with a skyline. 0-100 in 14.3? Must have a real slow 1/4 time and the cars perform diffrent fuctions.

    These never sold well. Weren't popular at all and from what i've read the V12 was considered a waste and the V8 was viewed as more pracical and a better buy.

    If someone offered me this, a ferrari or any of the others i'd sell em and buy the vantage vanquish when AM releases it.

    I think merc and jag are the only cars comparable with this car...<!-- Signature -->

    I agree
     
  8. 394HP ?
    almost 2 tons anyway...
    1,5t wood be more reasonable for a GT, 1,7t-1,9t too much...
    not fiable and very expensive maintenance
