I'd rather have the 6:55 Radical SR8 360 PS/650 kg
Aww c'mon man, completely unfair comparison. You can do normal car things with the 'vette like drive in the rain, go over speedbumps, enjoy your hearing into old age..

I was thinking the same drew.

Also, you cannot compare the vette to some super light open wheeled roadster. Its a monster of a production vehicle that you could daily drive.

Stupid question, but why do Japanese doods on Motoring use heel toe so much but infrequently seen anywhere else?

Cos they have itty bitty baby feet. They have their feet wrapped tightly from birth and when they are 16 they untie them and give them a car.
