    wow... viper whips z8 by 8 seconds round the nurbergring... could that be its 8ltr 450 hp and huge torque coming into play ?? <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    I think so -- It has 50 more horses, who did they think would win, the Z8 ?? haha<!-- Signature -->

    Truthfully, I wouldn't have expected such a heavy car as the Z8 to post that kind of blistering lap time. Sure, it was designed more as a comfy boulevardier, but as that N'Ring time attests, it can work a track like nobody's business.

    BTW, the Viper there was the UK Viper, rated at 406 hp. Same torque figures as US-spec, though.

    The viper was faster but not solid in construction or high in build quality or refinement. The Z8 is quicker than the more expensive 360 spider.

    I think he means in a straigt line. It is. It demolishes the Spider. To my knowledge, the Spider has not yet been tested at Nurburgring. Considering the coupe is only 9 seconds quicker than the Z8, I think it should be pretty close.
