I'd have trouble paying $87K for this thing, but part of me wants it. With a little soy sauce and/or raw fish, rice can be a good thing.

For less than half the price my Sti was capable of an easy 400hp.

Have you ever sat in one of those? They're great... if you're 5' 8" and a buck fifty.

actually you are very wrong. I just sold my evo 8 and I am 6'4" and weigh 220. the seats were great, not leather but light years more comfortable than these caddy seats. The ride was choppy but not worse than a M3 with the 19 inch rims. that car handled better than anything I have ever owned (stock) and with an air filter, turbo back exhaust and a boost controler I ran 12.70s @ 111 in the louisiana summer on pump gas. on street tires with 32psi i would cut 1.64 60ft times, constantly. don't underestimate those evos. for about 5k you can make 650-750 WHP, and with a curb weight of about 3000 pounds you do the math.

As great as the performance is, am I the only one that thinks that car looks like the old late 80's-90's econo box?

The price is flat out stupid but the driving experience would be awesome.

Fortunately we have the new Z06 here in America, for $20,000 less. It more than makes up for the Euro animals we can't get our hands on.

Well I don't think the price will be that high here in the states.

Also, you do get 3 year warranty with it.

I wouldn't buy it but I have seen the Top Gear video on it and it is pretty amazing.
