That'll come in handy around town.
When is too much too much?

Looks like a beast. Wish they'd get more creative with the engine RPO designations they hand out these days. Now we have another LT5.

The only Porsche that will be able to sniff the tailpipe of that car is a GT2. Starting price over $200K- if you can even find one. Good luck.

Fortunately, my car still has a better power to weight ratio. ZR1 = 4.71, me = 4.30

Hmm, more horsepower, significantly more torque, less weight, and less cost - I think I shall stick with my Callaway SC757 - plus it is paid for.

Sadly, most of these cars will be wasted on 70 year-old treadmill racers.
