That's Jay's car from NJ. Prior to this setup, he had the 2JZ with a huge turbo on it, so he wanted a change and he sometimes does things just to be different. With well over 2000hp in that motor, that et just shows that he hasn't figured out how to launch the car yet.

Another twist to a turbo V8 Supra is this one with a Lexus motor:

I have and I'd take the M5. The E55 just feels really, really heavy. Like a tank (in a bad way). Gotta love the torque though.

I noticed that too. I think thats why the benz was 30k cheaper.

I'm guessing they couldn't get an E63 for the test. (?)

I've always liked the look of the 70-71 Challengers, and the first stick I ever drove was an Orange 340 4-Barrel Challenger.

What was a gp rating? I recall a topless woman on a motorcycle or something somewhere in that movie... it was one of my favorite car movies as a kid.

The Aston is the sexist of the bunch, the Lambo is the most aggressive, the R8 just doesn't do it for me, its too busy and the benz is only there because they couldn't get a 911. The GT-R would have owned, if it were there, unless, of course, a ZR-1 was there and if the drift king was there he would have won the race in a civic dx.

Looks like Honda likes the design of the HSV Commodore's front end. But if the Mugen SI costs 30 large, i cant imagine how much this thing would be in this country.

Stop complaining about the 12.9 run. He'll obviously run better. Probably needs to dial in suspension and launching.
