Drifter by choice, fan of classics...
@speedhunters_dino @greenroadster That's a very expensive Nissan. And they get away with it :) That's why I demand Nissan to take a good look at Toyota and make a new S chassis car like the new GT86. That's a win-win combination. You can't live forever with a memory of a affordable sports car.

Hey Peter, I don't know where are you from, but in Europe American engines are not that cool or that performance orientated. Also, it will help you find out that an Alfa Romeo 8C is a car that Chevrolet won't equal in a decade or so. To have 620 hp from a 6.2 engine? Not that great. You said many times here that the ZR1 engine is "all alloy". So what? European car had all alloys when all American muscle cars had live rear axels. Wait, that was until yesterday.
Anyway, not a fan of your words.
And I bet that Bertone choose the Corvette underpinnings because of the cost. You know, technologies are expensive for a one off car.
You should go out more often.

I saw 6 years ago a Ferrari 250 LM at a auto show. I remember that I must have spent an hour or so near that white car. I never saw anything like that since or before. Seeing it in pictures doesn't do much for the design. It was huge, yet so slim and weightless, massive but with a feeling of featherweight aluminium chasis. Never will forget that car.

Really cool looking car. I remember as a kid passing every day going to school a Karmann Ghia and looking wondering what it was. After few years, the wheels just started to sink into the road and the windows were smashed. I was still looking at the car when, someday, the car was take it away. I remember my first thoughts were if I was to ever see a car like that again. I was, 15 years later when it was too expensive for my to buy...

Question - it is still pleasure in driving a F1 car or the politics, the pressure from teams/fans, money involved in the contract, etc., has taken away the fun of it?
Another one - It is fun or scary?

@somedisplayname @greenroadster Well, I have a Soarer for track drifting and it's been a project for a long time and a lot of money. After years in working progress a thousands of euros, it would be stupid to kiss the firs wall, just for the fun of it. If you are rich or don't care about your car, you can always do that. But that has nothing to do with drifting. You know that drivers that crash in front of huge crowds that gather to see cool cars leaving some car shows? Just to show how cool they are. You are that driver my friend. I said just let those stunts to professionals in Formula Drift, not ruin your car at grassroots events. It's lame.

So cool. Too bad about the whole "kiss the wall" attitude, it's ruined some pretty cool machines over the years. Stupid bravery
Yeah, why did you sell it Bryn? You didn't find out that some machines will live to regret selling them? Ask anybody.
Really cool car indeed. Even for a small fortune you couldn't sell this car.

You forgot to tell how much understeers. I saw the car, also in white. It is so small! But great looking.
When introduced the M4, BMW had put together a drive test in my city with all M cars. Although I drove the car with 270 kmh (legally if I may ad so because BMW had arrange with the highway police that it would be safe when traffic allowed us to floor it) well, actually, I kind of fell in love with the M6! It pulls harder, sounds better and feel planted on the road. Never the less, I can understand why it's faster the M4 around any track. Still, I prefer the M6 any day.
Funny fact - at 270 km/h, behind other M cars, my windshield cracked every 10-15 seconds. The huge rear tires had thrown so many little dust stones that, at the end of the day, the windshield looked almost white.

First of all, 458 is not a beautiful car. It has a pointy nose, it's to sharp and to fatty on the back, all wheels looks bad on this car, the tail lights are ugly and too small and inside is to flashy and cheap.
Want a beautiful car? Take a 250 GTO and put in it the engine, the gearbox and suspension of a 458 Italia.
That would be perfect.
1 month ago on Discussion: Can You Make A Ferrari 458 Better Looking Than It Already Is?
While I totally get what is all about the 250 GTO, I wonder how much really this car would worth if were to make it today. If Ferrari were to build in 2014 a beautiful aluminium body, a 3 litre high compression engine with a manual dog-leg gearbox, no fancy electronics, big fat tires 2 seats car, it would be more than 200.000 euro's? I don't think so.
Further more, if Toyota or Volkswagen were to build the same car today, it would cost more than 60.000 euro's? I don't think so.
Of course that this GTO would probably worth more than the buyer paid next year. And it should. It's a great piece of history right there. But that kind of cars shouldn't be that exclusive in this days. Why nobody want to produce a car like that? Why in 2014 we all drive heavy cars with all the pleasures from our living room and all the passion of a lazy night watching soap opera?

It is my opinion, I don't have to like him just because I read SPEEDHUNTERS.COM, does it? So spare me with "unlike" comments, I'm not the hatter here. He is a violent person, a rude personality (both proven with facts) and this site, or any site, can not force a reader to think otherwise.
