Doesn't happen too often, but this car is pretty much perfection off the showroom floor. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard they were making the move back to an inline 6, and elated when it was confirmed to be fitted with a snail. Engineers at BMW put the old M3 through hell at the gym, and the result is a lean, mean driving machine. Lol New muscles to flex, and curves to break necks. haha Simply stated, I love this car already and I haven't even seen it being put through it's paces yet.
In my opinion, BMW has regained supremacy by once again offering the paradigm enthusiast daily driver. This is going to be a tough one to beat. I'm interested to see if and how Lexus and Infiniti will respond. If the IS-F coupe (new Supra) ever comes to fruition, it has some serious competition. "New" Q60s coupe is no slouch, but it is clearly outclassed by the M4.
Things are heating up! It's certainly a good time to be an enthusiast!
I honestly enjoy every second behind the wheel of my Evo X GSR. I can appreciate what Subaru has to offer too, but for me...there's no point in comparing the two.

If the assumption is made that engine output between the 2 setups is the same then the logical choice is naturally aspirated. I thought of it a bit differently though. A factory turbocharged or supercharged engine setup has much more aftermarket tuner appeal than a high compression NA mill. IMO, it's just easier to make more power for cheaper with forced induction than NA, so my vote went for forced induction. ;-)

Great article! No doubt one of the coolest cars I've ever heard of.

Truth is that the ZN6 is the car that was missing from everybody's lineup. It filled the void of the defunct S2000 and the MX-5 of previous generations. (NA & NB) Like others have stated time & time again; the success of this car will revitalize the enthusiast oriented car for many manufacturers. It's not about being a "fan boy" as some of you have stated below, it's about bringing back an opportunity to tell cool tuner car stories when you're an old fart. Sure there's the Mustang and Camaro, but it's just not the same thing. A few may make a case for the Focus and Gti, but again, it's just not the same thing. The ZN6 is flat out fun in every sense of the word, and it's only the tip of the iceberg. :-)

@CP9A Will big difference though with the GT-R is that all the wheel diameters are the same; 20 inch wheels all around if I'm not mistaken. So, all the radial wheel speeds are the same. Wheel width doesn't effect radial wheel speed. The Aventador, on the other hand, has 19" wheels in the front and 20" wheels in the rear. You did mention an electronic differential though. Which may be able to figure it out, but it just seems the car would benefit more from a square stance. To me anyway.

@speedhunters_dino Well, if I were to try to do the same in my Evolution my center diff would freak out due to differing wheel speeds from front to back all the time. I'm sure Lamborghini designed for this staggered stance, but when I look at more common AWD cars like Stis or Evolutions they're sporting a squared stance.
I find it a little odd that Lamborghini is running a staggered stance in an AWD car. Unless it has a RWD bias of course.
