No offense, the zr1 is a great car, but that was a pretty lame argument put forth by the guy.

Lame?
Why would you buy a car that is going to bore the hell out of you? Where is the fun in that?

I would take the R8 hands down, yeah the ZR1 has more power but it still looks like a corvette (don't get me wrong it looks awesome)... most people wouldn't even know the difference between the C6 and ZR1. The R8 looks like a monster.

Yes, exactly. This is why I sometimes don't buy into magazine articles, they make the oddest arguments, as if somebody is going to get bored with the r8. That doesn't even make sense. He gets more excited by the zr1 because he loses control more often, and I think that's terrible logic.

That guy hates pretty much anything American made cars. But just like anyone not from the US, they love our way of life but they hate us for who we are. Trust me, it sounds weird but that how they view us.

I'd take the R8, much prettier and much more practical. I love the ZR1 but I'm not yet a good enough driver to handle a car so eager to kill me.

Reminds me of a ride in a Viper a friend had. He was a terrible driver and it showed in about 2 mins and a fast curve. Last ride I went with him but somehow he hasn't killed himself yet.
