ZL1 in MT's "2012 Best Driver's Car" (w/article)

ZL1 was #6, the GT 500 one notch lower at #7.

Thought you guys would like to see the ZL1 portion ...

Just don't understand these comparos. MT must really be bored coming up with these filler articles. How do you compare an AVENTADOR to a ZL1? Get real MT!

Thanks for the post OP.

Actually, this issue tends to be MT's highest selling monthly release and is the most extensive annual test done by the magazine, certainly not a "filler article". BTW, the Aventador finished DEAD LAST.

Actually, it becomes clear why this issue is their highest selling monthly release.

A $125k Porsche 911 Carrera won. BTW, they put the Subie BRZ ahead of both the ZL1 & the GT 500 at FOURTH PLACE.

Yes, it's all makes sense now ...

Not dissing the BRZ but ...

My thoughts on MT choosing the BRZ above a ZL1 as a better "driver's" car:

.............you don't actually think the AVENTADOR is a drivers car...........do you? I'm glad the BRZ was rated better though. It's purpose built for the street and at less than half the cost of the ZL1.

Just my $.02.............beers on me.......

I don't get all the hoopla about the BRZ ...

It has same/worse performance than the Balt SS/SC or the 03 SRT-4 I had, but costs the same/more than those cars.

People need to get a grip.
