  1. I love most sporty cars, for some reason or another, no matter where they are from. but when it comes to performance to price , the GTR is the best purchase IMO. And AWD can be driven anywhere anytime. You dont see many mustangs or vettes out during the winter, or even when its raining for that matter! bad engineering. you get what you pay for! =D
  2. Just look at them in comparison at the line.. The Mustang looks so big and out of place compared especially to the vetted which is smaller, lower, lighter. Vette and get closer to a super car proportions
  3. and plus the Shelby has a harder to shift gear box
  5. american cars sux, as always. sorry fat guys.
  6. Mustang sound so nice, I don't care if it's slower
  7. If the GTR was the fastest car in the world and beat everything else (IRL, that's not unrealistic lol) people would still find numerous reasons to hate it and defend their favorite loser car. It always happens every time a GTR races something. Why is it that hard to just accept that Nissan put a lot of effort into the GTR and made an engineering marvel? I understand, we all have our favorite cars. The mustang and corvette aren't bad cars, and I also like them along with the GTR. However, making lame excuses like "The mustang is still is cooler" isn't helping your argument and just makes you sound ignorant. Oh, and by the way for my fellow Americans, just because a car is domestically made does NOT make you patriotic or a better person because you drive/love it. Imports aren't evil, and I have personally seen astonishingly better quality out of them. 
  8. Id still take the Z06 or the GT500 over the GTR anyday. Takes more skill to drive the Z06 and GT500, and its more fun.
  9. Wow you guys are the most ignorant fools thinking that American cars suck and imports are the fastest cars in the world well guess what your wrong...... American coupe pony cars such as camaros mustangs and challengers may be heavy but do have aerodynamics and are faster than a Honda civic, evo, or any other car.... Way faster yeah sure the gtr is fast but that's because it's awd and without it it would be slow maybe reach 0-60 in 4 seconds or less and just to finish it all the very fast Hennessey venom gt is an American car and is the second fastest car now...... I do not see an import topping 271 mph MURICA!!!!! (BTW feel free to correct me because I do not know that much of cars but know something) 
  10. Only reason that mustang lost was because it has shit traction! 
  12. Love the ignorant hicks on this page. Stop arguing semantics and just deal with the fact you lost.
  13. I feel bad for american cars guess I gotta stick with imports
  14. Only if z06 could come in AWD
  15. The gtr is awesome because its a v6 with more power than almost all the v8s
  16. You get what you pay for. Except with a camaro you pay a lot for not so much.
  17. Gtr's eat mustangs for breakfast.
  18. Well there you go muttstain fans..youre in last place xD
  19. all 3 great cars!!
  20. "FORD" Forfeit On Race Day. 
  21. GTR is truly an amazing machine.
  22. LOL 50K For a Mustang.
  23. The showbe. lol
  24. Rocket Japanese Nissan GTR
  25. Lol, GTR needs AWD and twin turbos to just barely beat an old ass pushrod v8..silly Imports, the only way to make your shitboxes fast is to put an LSX in them
