Loved it. The Vagon lapped their test track FASTER than the V Coupe. Incredible. Makes me want one even more.

It's amazing how the V series turns anyone who drives it into a drooling teenager. I must admit that mine makes me feel the same way sometimes.

I loved the Vagon smoking the Ferrari in the quarter mile...that even got my wife's attention.

meh.

They showed and discussed the whole line, but only drove the couple and wagon on the timed course.

I'm glad I have a DVR and a fast forward for this program. As a Vagon owner, I enjoyed that part of the show.

It was all about the Wagon. The Sedan literally got 15 seconds of face-time.

As it should be.

I have a Ferrari 430 and a V wagon manual and I told the guys on the ferrarichat site that the wagon is one beast of a car, but no one tends to give it credit. The wagon is my daily driver and hauls kids, skis, has thule bike racks on top, and can still haul ass when it has to. Doesn't get much better.

the launch of the ferrari wasnt very agressive. also, with a 3.8 0-60 time against a manual caddy? appears as though somebody was sandbagging a little.

Yeah, the Ferrari did have a weak start. V still pulled, though...


And the Vagon looked AWESOME on the track. Loved the body lean. Badass. No need to mess with that suspension...

I will admit, watching the stig throw it around like that made me chuckle.

I actually stayed up late to watch-a rarity.

The track shots were worth it, certainly. Quite fun to watch the smoking rears attempting to put the power down out of the corners. Tanner must have been driving.

The Ferrari face off was a farce-a little too far of a stretch.

Wish they would provide more car focus imagery/sounds-similar to the British version.

Glad we have the show though...

I noticed the same thing, it was almost a full car length

Yeah, definitely. This car is awesome but that was one WEAK launch on the Ferrari.

The Ferrari might have been sandbagging a little but this time/trap: http://www.dragtimes.com/Ferrari-California-Timeslip-19011.html seems to be almost the exact same as many of us are running stock in our V's, right? They are evenly matched, I guess it all comes down to the driver.

The wagon has more weight at the back, therefore, more traction.
