Take a Boxter, stretch it 12 inches and stick a V-10 in it.

I love this car too, but read in a magazine how hard it is to launch it from a dead stop. The slightest press on the gas makes the wheels spin.
It's an awesome track car, but I'm not sure if it could be a daily driver.

I'm not sure, but I think Enzo is more friendly in this respect.

Porsche had a black one at Rennsport, and they were also running it on the track in the plastic bodied, and prototype race. It is simply amazing. It sounds so good. Where were these pictures taken?

So it needs to have the throttle cam replaced.

Great car, I would still rather have an R32 Nissan Skyline GTS-T; yes, the RWD one, not AWD

according to evo, it is by far the best supercar since the McLaren F1 (it's almost as quick as a McLaren, too!)... better than all those pitiful Ferrari specials!!!

I can't wait till I see (and hear) one in the flesh...er, carbon fiber

Holy hooligans! To think of all those special tools I'll need just to change the oil. Must make more money! Nah, that takes away from half the fun. Nice ride, though.

I wonder how much insurance on it will go up once the first SUV-driving soccer mom rear-ends one. Probably exceed her liability coverage...

For the price of the GT, you'd expect it have the 'Automatic-bug-Removal' option as standard....
