The release of the 570S & GT really drove down the price. The guy I bought it from has a stable of supercars and it only has just over 8,000 miles on it. I ended up spending pretty much what I...

I never thought I would purchase a car like this, but I guess I'm having a third(?) life crisis or something. I tried for months to convince myself to get a c7 Z06 or a Viper instead, but the Viper...

I really like the Huracan, even though I didn't at first, mostly because of the cool options/colors they offer. The light blue color they offer is bad ass.

I want to see some in-car video of it driving. The high rpm positive displacement blower combo is really intriguing to me. I would be interested to see how it does with a pair of turbos.

I don't know why they're even trying with new hosts. Just milk the repeats. It's not Top Gear without the old hosts, in my opinion.

"No fair! Your car isn't stock!"

Most serious car enthusiasts buy a car as a canvas, not a finished product. Some canvases have more potential than others. It's very relevant.

You're missing my point. Ford is not going after the Huracan and 458, they are going after the hypercars. LaFerrari, P1, etc. The formula had to be more creative, different, exciting, new.

A manual transmission is simply not up to par in this category anymore. I used to be all about only driving manuals, then I drove a 458 Italia for a week. You get over it reeeaaall quick.

Custom? Are you trying to say the GT350 is not a stock Ford vehicle?

Didn't you JUST complain about me comparing the GT350 to the Z/28, a very similar, low volume vehicle? :sm0:

With use of the full track a GT350R should have no problem lapping Laguna in the mid-low 1:3X range. Changing the lines with cones makes a huge difference in lap times.
