That was interesting-Big Red is a blazingly fast car-didn't expect that at all.

to me it seems as if the latest iteration of the viper resembles the corvette too closely

AMG has been stepping up in the handling department lately, at least on some models. Not like an ///M of course, but definitely better. I don't know what more they can do considering how damn heavy MB's are to begin with...

umm, it has the same engine and weighs less

Just reminded me that I saw one about a month or two ago on the way to lunch. Late 60's to early 70's guy but he actually took off at a pretty good pace when the light turned green. I spent the next ten minutes describing to my co-workers just how rare of a MB it was and then the next half and hour recouping from creaming my pants. Definitely the hottest MB I've ever seen in person.

I wonder how fair these rolling/3 honk starts really are... (even though I didn't hear any honking, what signals the start of the race?)

If you go to Gary's site, it explains it. They were originally out to run a stock G against the TT one and the camera car was BR. After running, the lined up these two-and the signal to go was the Gallardo going . . .

I would take the M3. It's classic looking and there are a ton of bolt-ons to make it faster!
