So many options. :cool:


Edit: having watched the review, it breaks most of my "good review" rules.

Getting tired of silly car reviews...

...you know, where 90% of it is spent drifting on a race track, and the cars ability to do this seems to be important.

Sure, showboat a bit to get some cool footage, but I'm kinda tired of hearing how great it is that you can get the back end out through a corner and stuff, do people buy these cars and then actually do it, or are just happy to know that someone else has?

Even for the 2% of sports cars that might see a race track, how likely are they to be used in this manner?  I know I wouldn't, I'd be launching an assualt at cornering speed, maybe i'd just have a little fun on a corner or two here and there, but the ability to steer a car with the right foot isn't something that has much bearing on how good it is.

I want to see the cars on windy roads, spectacular scenery, tunnel runs, and carving their way through traffic.

Back to the Video. Sutcliff states this GT3 is without a doubt the very best sports car in the world.

And I wonder whether he classifies the 458 as a sports car?? Vs Supercar....

If so, then This GT3 is going to be bloody great!

Wait until the RS is released. Then he'll say that is so much better than the GT3.

I still do wonder if the stock GT3 will be a true competitor to the 458??

Having stated this, a used 458 with minimal KM's will be the same buying as a new GT3. The 4 Seats to some with young kids may be a tipping point.. It will be interesting to see all of the reports.

Of course EVO Mag will give it car of the year again..... So there will be no surprises there...
