My 09 M3 is REALLY slow.

So yesterday, a casual friend of mine came over with his 2001 Vette. I did not know he had this car since he usually is not driving it. It was pretty sharp with aftermarket body pieces and rims. I comment "nice Vette". He tells me thanks, it has a lot of work done.....

So, we pop the hood which has a center carbon fiber cold air vent, and I see a monsterous supercharger, front intercooler, and a plaque on the plenum stating 768HP and 700 something lb/ft torque. This was rear wheel!! He tells me it is like 850hp at the crank.

Needless to say, we went for a drive.

Thing is insane. It way outpulls any relatively stock M3 even when in 3rd gear! He tells me other Vettes with the same mods have run high 9s in the quarter.

Now I want G forces like this.....

He also have suspension mods and races at Millville all the time. Handles great.

Kind of rough ride though.

Looks like it's time to MOD up, or upgrade to a SUPER car!

I think I saw video of him going off at turn 1 on the Thunderbolt course at NJMP. Way off. I can't access youtube at work, but if you do a search I'm sure you can find it.

The vette is an amazing car. After talking to my best friend about cars that we want to own, he told me wants to one day own a high end vette. I didn't know why he would do that, but then after reading up on the car, it totally made sense. He's an accountant and did a lot of bean counting, so it was a financially sound choice. They don't get labeled "best bang for the buck" for no reason. Especially having a variation that can run w/ Ferrari's and the such. 700+hp and 700+torque... haha.. no question.. that kind of g force will make us go gaga... that or "wtf" Hehe

My previous car was a 2003 SVT cobra. It had various modifications but the primary power adder was the 2.8L Kenne Bell Twin Screw supercharger. The car made 642rwhp//605rwtq @ 22 psi on 93 octane. Yeah the car was scary fast and could out run an production car out there --- but it was loud as hell, extremely poor gas milage, and felt very uncivilized compared to my M3.
Sometimes, I admit, I do miss the raw power of the cobra. But IMHO the M3 is a much better all around balanced and fun sports car.

And if your just looking to get a speed fix go out and buy a crotch rocket. the 850hp vette cant touch that trust me.

American muscle is where you want to be if you're looking for stupid amounts of power for relatively cheap.

For the record, I owned a Grand National that was worked to the gills! What a beast.
