    when an American car sets the fastest lap record and a Lexus sets the second fastest, it shows that the world is gone wrong.

    A $100,000+ American car and a $400,000+ Japanese car.

    Best driver's car based solely on lap time regardless of price? Looks like they forgot quite a few cars then....

    I like his commentary.

    The winner isnt based on the best lap time, its just something they put in. It supposed to be best drivers car, handling, steering feel, brake feel etc....

    also good to see a lap time out of the boss 302....is it the normal or the laguna seca version that is supposed to be able to run 1:40?

    ZO6 beats the LFA. If I owned an LFA and saw this, I would have diarrhea.

    The Z06 doesn't have loads more torque?

    What about the fact that it's tires get grippier when there's more heat, and their wider... Did you not see the Ferrari spinning out of several corners? I thought that part was obvious

    there is tons of arguments, i dont like to get into x vs. y on the internet. 2 seconds is a good amount of time. They each have their stong suits, id take the ferrari any day, but the z06 is a bargain for performance. Whatever floats your boat.

    Different chassis and different tire setups will yield different results... There will be a Ferrari 458 Stradale or whatever they will call it that will be faster. Bang for the buck the Z06 with the Ultimate Perf Pkg (Carbon Fiber Brembos, Michelin PS2's, Magnetic Shocks and staggered 19/20" wheels) is a nice bang for the buck proposition vs something like a Ferrari. But to each their own, I would rock the Z06 all day long over the Ferrari.

    Keep in mind I have owned a 355 F1 and a 308 which was my first car... Enjoyed them but didnt love them, I like a car that can be modded in most anyway. Ferrari's are somewhat limited in their mods and the few companies that can or do mod them cost dearly. The Vette has the ability to make much more power for far less money...

    I've owned well over 70 cars from Ferrari's to Scions and most things in between. I've driven most everything out there from Veyron's to Scirocco's. My tastes run the spectrum and thus my cars change more frequently than most. My focus is very broad dont let the current Mustang fool ya.

    Stupid huh???
