Who cares??? I can't stand the plexiglass window in the hood of the ZR1...... so cheesy, and don't get me started on the interior.

If fast is all that matters there are lots of cars that can be made to go faster than a ZR1 for less money!!!

ZR-1 is slower than the TurboS GT 2, and around Mosport
Almost certainly slower than the GT3 RS, 100 percent slower than
The GT2 RS. The zR1 is Definitely much better and faster than the Z06,
Especially blue Z06's.

+ 1 I would take the 458 in a heartbeat....chris is right on the spot until the end when he comments about whether the car has supercar looks???

IMO, if you park that next to a 458...chances are it won't get as noticed

The Mclaren starts at $247500 in Canada which I think is a bargain in my eyes compared to Ferrari pricing in Canada.Either one of them are cars that I would to have for sure!

True!

Ferrari Pricing in Canada is a little puzzling

However, the McLaren pricing is more or less consistent everywhere because 168,000 is approx close to $CDN250,000!

Amazing car. I want to see him thrash it on a dry track!

Software, software, software. That is a long term theme of my posts.

Now our trusty M3s certainly do not have quite this level of adjustability but they do have it, certainly the Power setting and drivelogic setting exert quite a bit of control and variation. The EDC and DSC are the components that need a greater range of adjustment. I suppose all of those folks ranting against the level of adjustability in the M3 will also be hatin' on the McLaren.

This this sucker has an 4% better power to weight ratio than the 458 Italia. That pretty sick.

I have not bought any Ferrari's for clients in quite a while but the last 2 that I bought new were $293000 for a 360CS and $381000 for a really well equipped 430 Spyder.

$381k makes MP4-12C look like bargain of the century!
