    Ugh, why? There are far more capable machines out there for far less money. If you need your dick extended that bad, go to Sweeden and get surgery!

    I'm gonna have to side with the no vote on this ride. I've seen them in person at the F1 races where they use them as the pace car. They definitly have scoot and sound pretty good, but from all the articles I've read on them, they handle about as well as the fox bodied Mustangs. Definitly not the entire package when it comes to super cars.

    s far as a realistic car to buy if you cashed in on the lottery, I'd be all over a 360 Modena, or the 430, or if I could find one, an M3 GTR. Maybe a 997 Turbo

    Ever since the movie "The Rock" came out. I've always wanted an F355 Ferrari GTS. Not the F1 version with the paddle shift, but just the regular GTS T Top model. No matter what car ever gets built i will always want an F355.

    It's a removable roof, not a T-Top.
