So many fanbois on this site.....a fully loaded GT500 coupe with the glass roof is $67k, without it just over $65k..if the car was available for MSRP great deal, with the ADMs its not. Still what can touch this car for $80k?
Also the issues with the MT82 have all been rectified and uses a Getrag tranny just like our BMWs. Even the DCT is built by Getrag.
I agree with you some posts here go to far and are misinformed. On the other hand the GT500 is not the holly grail some other people make it to be.
The GT500 has an extreme engine but it still has a crap interior and crap chassis. It's all about the engine, if all you want to do is scare yourself and only drive one quarter mile at a time, then it might be a great choice. In terms of "who can beat it" it depends, my M3 beats it in terms of balance, interior, and quality. Other cars in the same price range can beat it on a track with turns, take the ZL1 for example.
