    Would you rather have a new Z06 or a second hand Ferrari 360

    I'm sure that if you had a properly run in Chevy on the dyno it would produce a lot more than the book figures. The prices on 7.0/500BHP LS7 crate engines is a bit mental though, looking at nearly $14K at the moment whereas the 6.0/400BHP LS6 is $3700! Dunno how much German engines are to buy...

    Would you rather have a new Z06 or a second hand Ferrari 360

    The fuel economy figures quoted in the US are the same as anywhere else. The only thing to note is that a US gallon is smaller than a UK one so if you're comparing cars make sure you're using the same scales. www.fueleconomy.gov is a very good website for comparing cars. The Z06 gives 20MPG...

    I know what you mean, if the Ferrari had proper suspension like the Vette maybe it would be as quick!

    If those 2 were on your photo, there's no way you'd get away with it, they'd have you in court and your license ripped before you could say 'On that Bombshell!!'

    Sony reveals PlayStation 3 prices

    Just add my $0.02 I sold my PS2 as I couldn't find any exclusive games I liked other than GT. I bought a Cube and Xbox which could be bought for the same price as a PS2. Games like Ninja Gaiden, DOA, Ikaruga, Forza, PGR are enough to satisfy me with my purchase (and my lad loves Halo although...

    You do realise that everything on TG is scripted don't you?

    The Lotus is more expensive than the Ford Mustang in the UK for sure. Didn't see the point of racing a stripped out track car on semi-slicks against a fully loaded GT that seats 4 people (can actually get in and out of a Mustang without becoming a contortionist), and even then the gap wasn't...

    Not officially although there are a few importers who have them. Matthew

    is the saleen all its cracked up to be?

    LOL!! If you read my other posts you'll know that I'm a huge US car fanboy and the Vette is my favorite car in the world! In addition I generally hate Euro supercars as they're so expensive they're beyond the reach of 99% of petrolheads and they're super fragile so they break down for fun. A...

    is the saleen all its cracked up to be?

    Only ever seen 1 of these cars in the UK, I doubt you'll ever see one on TG/FG if they ever start officially importing them. If you look at all the claimed facts n figures it sounds very impressive but it doesn't look like it could out perform a Euro super car. Would love to see it tested...

    Would you rather have a new Z06 or a second hand Ferrari 360

    If I was in a Z06 it would make my day that there are folks who've paid nearly 3 times as much for there car in order to match the performance! There's nothing elitist or exclusive about it, you don't need to be a millionare to afford one, I like that, it's nice that there's a car out there for...

    Would you rather have a new Z06 or a second hand Ferrari 360

    If the ferrari cost the same as the Z06, cost the same to maintain, insure etc then I can understand why some folks would prefer it, but given the massive price differences and that you'd be buying a used car over a fresh new one, and the indisputable facts n figures about the peformance of both...
