The Mercedes SLR would be great if it was not required to turn, and the problem here is that most roads and racetracks have turns. Horsepower does not mean shit, the sl65 beats the carrera GT in horsepower, yet the Gt beats the sl65 in every category, except worthlessness.

Come at me with the best youve got you stupid mercedes lovers.

PS: Z3's are also ****ing pussy girls' cars(except the M versions), so you DavidM, you arent allowed to talk.
It says on his sig that it is a M, if I read it correctly.

bmw m6

5.0-liter V10 power plant as the M5 along with a seven-speed SMG transmission. With 507 horsepower on tap, the M6 should have no problem keeping pace with Mercedes' high-powered CL coupes....
bmw rocks man

Here's one tip...

Even though I write a little late to make sudden change to subject, but as I havenít been on a forum for a while, as I seen this tempting subject, I had to answer it, even if it wonít be of any help any more. Not much of experience comes from my engineering, because I havenít finished faculty yet, but this much I know Ė that if you have intention to compare cars, you must start from basics of comparing which would be comparing the power to weight ratio. If thatís not enough, you can then put price as another factor, then fuel economy and many other undeniable facts, so you can get reliable facts about vehicle. You must pay attention to compare same class of cars. When you do that part, you can discuss about which one is more preferable for your esthetic and acoustic choice, but just plane saying that one car got that speed, while other havenít Ė that would be wasting of time. If you have enough courage to come to forum and put your posts about cars, you must at least know to cover your story with facts. This method is common in car buying for huge companies. You must do such calculations, so you can decide which car would be best to buy, especially for the large orders as pickups for postal service or buying tractors for vast agricultural company. On same basis, you can do research for passenger cars.
Idea is given, so that conversation in whole can reach level it deserves. If, however you want to discuss about design and art value of a car, then your opinion counts, otherwise all that counts is pure calculation.

Hello to old friends that know me!
