    i sure as help im not one of the IGNARINT ones. id like to see a matchup of normal lvl drivers on the Nring. one in an enzo and one in a 1000tt. see who wins. the porsche comment is a total lie, you can buy a GT2 for 150 easily now. gt2 would wipe a gt off the map. oh yeah, guess who designed the latest "american muscle"? the srt10 was designed by a jap, the handleing done by either the brits or the germans, and the engine tuned by germans. so much "american muscle" same with the GT. a whopping 0% was designed in america. the only american things on it are the badge and the base engine block (later modifiesd by germans)

    as for porsches and BMWs costin so much, an M3 can take a c5, and it has 4 seats, and luxury for only 60grand. also, these cars hold their value much better than american cars. you get what you pay for. alot of the stuff on german cars you dont realize until you drive an american car without it, as in variocam, how foglights turn on if your headlight goes out, shit like that.

    i can tell you dont drive, if you could drive you would know the difference. but you cant. and also, HP doesnt mean anything. want a car that would mop the floor with a c5 for less money, drag or track. here ya go a lil baby elise with an integra engine at 190 hp. all for 40000 grand. looks cooler too.

    go suck it mr ignorant. (or should i say ignarint)

    I can think of many things I would take over this. A house I designed myself. A beautiful wife. A Maclaren F1.

    But what really sticks out in my mind is the Jaguar XJ-13, which is not production and never got to race, but is simply one of the most beatiful cars I have ever seen and has far more power than I can really handle effectively anyway. It came about in the 60s and is a styling mix between the modern mid engine layout (5L V12) and the cuvaceous 50s bodystyles, which can actually be seen in the Viper to a small degree because its inspiration is from the Shebly Cobra, itself an AC Ace chassis from the UK. BTW, theres only one and its probably worth like 15 million. Damn.

    In terms of realistic competition, the Ligenfelter TT. Not even the 427TT, the 346. Actually, better yet, a Mosler MT900S with Ligenfelter modded motor<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Ugh you guys make me sick..especially phanomuzick or whatever his name is... The styling was done by a japaneese guy, from america, who works for chrysler...And no, the germans and english had nothing to do with the handling or the motor, it was all done by dodge PVO...Same guys who did the first viper made this one as well, started from scratch too i might add...And im thinkin that a stock M3 would have a bit of trouble with a C5 vette...So id rather not pay the extra 50k just to have my fog lights turn on after one of my headlights goes out..And as for build quality, yes the interior dynamics may be a bit nicer on the porsche, but for the extra money it sure as hell better be that much nicer...not much though...For milage i know i could get more out of a vette on the long run due to engine stress... a turbo vs N/A the N/A would last longer since its not putting as much stress on the internals. Thats also where the theory of no replacement for displacement comes in too... But im sure you guys knew that... Its also a helluva lot cheaper to fix a vette...

    Why do all Vipers look the same? It's nice, but i got sick of it.

    the viper is still a young car, around for only 12 years. the first generation from 92-95, then the second 96-02 which refreshed the design of the viper.
    But now there is the new SRT10 which is a good redesign.

    The viper is only one sports car, saying they all look the same, except the srt10 which is the redesign is like saying, why do all ferrari 355s look the same? With the 360 being the redesign of that car.
