That's hilarious- "The 458 is faster than you, do you understand?"

so basically

If you want an affordable to the upper middle class, somewhat reliable sports car with connection to the road, a pure driving experience and 6MT

The most value-oriented choice is the Porsche GT3?


Thats impressive from Porsche. For the value, they make great cars.

Thanks for sharing! I've only watched the first few minutes, but I had to smile when he was praising the GT3 for having a sound that was pure engine, without any phony artificial exhaust tuning; that's exactly the reason I love the way my diesel(!) sounds. I'll watch the rest tonight, for sure.

epic video... saw the whole thing last night. The zonda r has always been my favorite car since they first announced it, and I'm glad that he agrees that it is a beautiful, brutal monster.

I just don't get how he can say the superleggera is just as good as a regular gallardo. That can't be possible. And the 599 GTO HAS to be faster than the 458 italia.

I was surprised the 458 italia kicked the GTOs butt, hah. There's no words to describe how sick the Zonda R is!

The GTO is definitely faster - it's just that it's driver definitely isn't. The only reason he kept up is because the GTO really is that quick

Oh yeah, that's right, it's not available in US. Lame!
Yep not available in the US. Looks like pirating is the only option for now...

Thanks OP!
