The run was GREAT. It was amazing driving with such amazing cars. I was really shocked to have guys driving Vipers and Ferrari's asking me about me E90.

But then again, one of the Viper guys said he was trying to figure out how this BMW was staying on his tail through the curves. The straights were a different story...there is a reason why they are considered "supercars"

Here are a few more pictures from the drive (my car is the Titanium Silver 330i).

It's hard to convince someone to look under the hood of a BMW when you have things like this to look at (Ford GT and Ferrari F360).

I couldn't believe how unbelievably QUIET our cars are next to those other machines. Even at full throttle, my car was quieter than the other cars at idle. When you are surrounded by 2 Vipers, 6 Ferrari's, and other various exotics, the background rumble becomes a bit overwhelming. I had to keep looking at the tach to make sure my car was even on!

I can't believe I forgot to post these pictures.

-View of the Enzo engine
-Ferrari 308
-Ford GT (this was taken just moments before a HUGE burnout)
-Porsche 993
-Ford GT Interior

Also, the owner let me sit in the Ford GT. Now THAT was a tight fit (I'm 6'2 and he was 6'1). If I closed the door it probably would have chopped off the top inch or so off of my head. You really have to scrunch down to get into that car and avoid the door/roof panels from hitting you in the head when you close the door.

Sorry, no pictures of the interior. The car was closed until the owner got in to drive. Even though he seemed like a nice guy, I figured it wouldn't be a good idea to take an unannounced picture of him getting into his car.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the sound of the Enzo is a whole different story. Any throttle input let out a WAIL that was louder than the other Ferrari's at full throttle.

They did not want too many cars there that day. I'll see if I can bring a few more BMWs next time.

We went to the lime rock park but it was close. Not sure where in CT we went after that. However, we drove for another hour north after the stop at that park.
