    The Ford GT is vindicated and rapes the viper this time, even with severe disadvantages in its testing location :big grin:

    That Saleen S7 is pretty cool though.

    I'd never seen a bright red s7 before. First color I've ever liked it in.

    Methinks a few of the Ferraris would've stampeded their way onto that list. Why the Gallardo? Why not the Murcielago?

    Close, But No Cigar

    On paper, Audi's limited-edition RS 6 is a shoo-in. After all, it gets a more-than-respectable 450 hp and a healthy 415 ft.-lb. of torque from its twin-turbo 4.2-liter DOHC V8. Audi pairs this motor with its proven Quattro all-wheel-drive system. But short of hooking up a nitrous oxide bottle to the German sedan, we could not get the RS 6 into the 12-second bracket. We tried every driving style any one of us could come up with. We had everyone on the staff take a couple of cracks at hustling it down the strip. Basically, we did everything we could think of, but we couldn't get this sedan to cover 1320 ft. from a standing start in less than 13 seconds. Make no mistake, the Audi RS 6 is one quick machine. Just don't challenge a guy in a Mercedes E55 AMG to a drag race.

    I want the E55 benz and the Ford GT, and I think that those will cover everything :o I bet I could even tow the GT with the benz.

    When it comes to cars, one thing, and one thing only, separates the United States of America from the rest of the world. The rest of the world judges a car's performance by its top speed. They all want to know how fast it will go. Americans, on the other hand, couldn't give a Thanksgiving turkey about top speed. Top speed is for wimps. Americans dig acceleration. Skull-crushing, eyeball-bursting, plant-you-firmly-in-the-seat acceleration. The kind of acceleration that sends toupees into back seats, spleens into spines and your body deep into the rich Corinthian leather.

    Ask yourself: How many times in your life have you pegged the speedometer to see how fast your car could go? Probably never. But at least once in your life, you've floored it at a light, maybe even raced the guy next to you when the light turned green. Everyone has.

    Yes, Americans want to know how quickly a car can accelerate, how quickly a car can jump from 0 to 60 mph or cover the quarter-mile from a dead stop. America is the Acceleration Nation.

    There is almost nowhere that I'll be able to drive 250mph in the US.

    On the other hand, there's plenty of places you could do the quarter mile.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: top speed is for wimps? :rofl::rofl:
    most people don't try and drive 140mph (expecially in most american made cars) because it's scary as fuck.
