So we are talking about a very fast car here:
Yeah man, that guy claimed that 12.61s was without launch control. Sounds like quite a beast. Yes, i am quite happy Too bad it can't run with the current generation exotics unlike the E60 M5. It was able to hang with Gallardos and F430s. The current 458 has taken too much of a step forward from the 430. Nevermind, a little tune should take care of that Realistically speaking though, nobody really needs more power than that in a large saloon. It's all just crazy "wants" that is getting to the head, mine included.
