02 C32 AMG vs 04 Pontiac GTO vs Anything Else?

Bassicaly I'm looking for a car that has retardedly fast acceleration, BOTH of them I know do around 4.6/7 seconds, so I'm wondering what other competitors there are to this group.

I'd like the body to look mildy subdued, you know speeding tickets and all that, pricing is around 26k but not over 30k.

Leather is a plus, I want something that will SCARE passangers if I floor it.

Now THAT's a car that will get you arrested before you top 61 MPH

http://www.generalslegion.net/norice.jpg

If I took a hacksaw to the spoiler and hood ornament... then it would look bitchin.

I wonder how much it would cost to buy a matching standard hood and trunk, and re-route the intercooler through the front intake.

-

Stock cars are nicer though.

I hate the Quad lights on the ford GT, if I got one it would be in, baby blue, with a sand color interior, and I'd remove the front foglight grill and replace it with the V6 one off ebay. It's easier than installing quad lights on the normal one, just unhook some cables, undo some screws tape them up and put another peice of plastic in.

Oh yes, Premium, Shaker 1000, and Interior Upgrade.

-

Actually I was originaly gona get the same exact mustang, except in white, and black leather, with a V6, but I just don't think it has enough umph to it!

-

I think I'd like a White GTO personally, too bad they don't come in that color...

So... Our Contenders so far:



I'm gona make it a point to pay for those rims and wheeles....






I wonder if they sell silver backings for the lights... It looks better.

If anyone can find me those exact GTO rims, and silver mustang backings for the headlights it would be much appreciated.

I know they're not ASA ST4's but pretty dam close.

Not sure if I like the nuts and bolts on those.

Same, but does anyone know if it's speed is electronicaly limited at 155mph like the C55?

Personaly I would prefer the ORIGINAL Holden Monaro instead of the GTO (i'm pretty sure they put the 400hp engine in 2005 in it too), it just looks nicer on the outside.

Yeah the GTO's make 400hp but the Mustang has 300hp and is as fast as the GTO or faster depending on whos driving it, its not always about hp and torque

Between the C32 and GTO, I would go with the C32. Not only good straight-line performance, but cornering, braking, etc. Better all-round car.

Lancer Evo is worse than the STI, at least you can convert that car into looking somewhat like a normal car, Evo has no chance.

Speaking of which, what does STI stand for?

I'm wondering if some of the corvettes work, and does anyone know how Practical a 3 liter, Z4 is...? it doesn't seem very.
