lol, C63 Vs. GTR

Check this out over at the Benz forums. http://mbworld.org/forums/showthread.php?t=222684
As always there's a certain few that struggle to find ways to justify purchasing a C63 over a GTR. The majority is sane enough to realize how great of a deal the GTR is and try to talk some sense, but you have to laugh at the select few.

first we have people asking if the M3 will bow to the skyline - which is just like saying, would you take jessica alba (pre-pregnant) over a disabled girl (no offense but it is SUPER obvious)

now we have C63 on the same level as the GTR? wow
i mean the C63 is one hell of a machine no doubt, but it aint a 0-60 3.3 11.6 1/4 mile machine.

I'd dump my M in a heartbeat for the GT-R. No questions asked.

gtr is a japanese car but it has got really good performance and design but MB is more comfortable so I think that a lot of people want to buy mercedes because of its performance and comfort

thats true i get what you mean. my family has never owned a single japanese car (not to brag) and have always loved european cars. my dad's only japanese cars were a toyota tacoma and datsun Z.

but i mean when it comes to performance, you gotta give props to nissan for the new GTR. sure the old skylines were beasts too, but that was if you modded them

C63 is amazing....but it would always be my 2nd choice, if it were compared to a GTR! New GTR is going to set it own standard

So, do you think that a year after the Base GTR has been released and they come out with the Nismo GTR that people with the normal GTR will feel inferior?

Just trying to take all things considered. At least an M3 or C63 will be the same for a while (7 years +/-)

not true, what about the people who have the clk63 cab/coupe only to get one upped by the black series in one/two years

... naw, that's like saying the C350 folks will end up feeling "inferior" as soon as the C63 is released.

I'm sure the C63 folks will feel "inferior" as soon as the Renntech or Brabus C63 comes out.
