    Looked like it was on a runway. They probably did a 1/2 mile race. GT-R got gangbanged by real supercars.

    So.......a car from a country that believes drags are the only true measure of a car's performance beat a bunch of cars from places that value the ability to hold speed through a corner, and have never built cars for drag racing....NO WAI!

    I wish they would have included the Viper ACR as well... im sure it wont beat the ZR1 but i would have been nice addition.

    ZR1 looked mean as fuck in that line up too. But I still love the 599 and Gt3

    :rofl:

    where did I say that? I just said that Americans put far more emphasis on straight line performance and drags than German, Italian, or Japanese car companies.

    GT2 in the vid, bra


    The idea behind a supercar is great handling coupled with great straight line performance. GTR is at the bottom of that pack when it comes to the 2nd part of being fast.

    Digs out of the hole get you nowhere in the back straight.

    The ZR-1 dominates. It is the ultimate econo supercar.

    The 599, while fast, is worth several houses.

    The Porsche, beautiful, fast, but again, a couple houses worth of car.

    GT-R, hmmm, well, the price is good.....

    have you seen the type of grip and slalom levels a ZR1 pulls? Not to mention braking ability.

    Whoops I meant GT2. Still would have been nice to see how the ACR fits in there.

    So is LAUNCH control for the corners or what? I don't see the ZR-1 with any launching aids being so bred for drag racing and all.

    Um, what?


    I honestly don't get why people are jumping my shit, I'm just saying that the ZR1 winning was kind of a forgone conclusion....

    And I hate basically everything that Nissan has done recently, including the GTR. Great engine, sure, but that's about it. Given the styling and the transmissio breaking, I'd rather have a L28et boosted to that power output. Atleast that'll just snap axles and not gear boxes.

    60-0 mph
    ZR1 - 97 ft
    599 - 105 ft
    GTR - 105 ft
    GT2 - 98 ft

    Lateral Acceleration
    ZR1 - 1.10 g (avg)
    599 - 0.95 g (avg)
    GTR - 0.97 g (avg)
    GT2 - 1.10 g (avg)

    Top Speed (observed)
    ZR1 - 200.4 mph
    599 - 201.5 mph
    GTR - 195.0 mph
    GT2 - 199.8 mph

    Lap Time
    ZR1 - 56.9 sec
    599 - 58.0 sec
    GTR - 58.1 sec
    GT2 - 57.5 sec

    The ACR would have killed this group by a long shot (barring the ZR1).
