- I'm seeing a lot of ignorant comments on this video... I whole lot of
them... It's sad you guys can't appreciate all three of these cars, because
you think the car you like the most defines you in some way, and if anyone
insults it? They're insulting you... A real petrol head will give merit to
all these cars. I'm not the biggest fan of the GT-R, and I hate its fanbase
as much as Adolf Hitler hated the Jews. But I'm not going to try and take
away its iconic legacy it's made for itself. Same goes for the Z06, and
GT500! It's okay to have preference! One man likes ass, another likes
titties. Some like Chips Ahoy, some like Oreos. But at the end of the
damned day, they all get the job *DONE* in the same way! So take your
ignorant fanboy comments, and do a self prostate exam with them!
I speak for every *REAL* car enthusiast world wide! Because trust me!
They're all thinking the same thing too! Either appreciate great cars! Or
shut the fuck up, and get the *FUCK* out!
- why did the gtr win? fast automatic transmission + all wheel drive +
- lets take another look and see why ?
its japanese !! and its much more refined!
- why did they get the mustang in there? it just stood there and wet itself..
- Take a bone stock gtr and add about 3k in parts and it owns the streets and
track now try that with any pony car.... ( Godzilla King Of Monster )
- me, I like Japanese supercars more than american muscles
- Waiting for all of the butthurts to complain about the GT-R having AWD.
- I watch too many of these drag racing video.
GTR can win over a supercar that has a lot more horsepower than the GTR.
Japanese sold more cars in this world than any cars company ever dream
of..The quality of a Japanese cars is second to none.
- The driver of Shelby is not professional
- i dont understand all these kids saying omg a v6 can beat a v8. do you guys
realize this v6 has two turbos on it? end of story theres no excuse if you
put two turbos in a vette that thing would launch to the moon!
- Sushi kicks the shit out of the Big Mac and the Big Whopper!
- Damn that shelby is too sexy..haha
- im tired of stupid americans loving the mustang and muscle cars. just like
fighting, you dont need all the muscle in the world to win a fight.
- 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)
- Too much Godzilla for those shitty american cars
- I do think give a fuck if the GT-R is faster I'll still take the Mustang
- Gtr's eat mustangs for breakfast.
- what are you mucle car fan? hey you fool!! the 2 cars is FUCKIN V8 THE gtr
IS JUST V6 and stil they can not catch up so what else you what ? even you
modified the 2 v8 cars but once they modified the GTR atlest stage 2 ITS
over!!!!!!!!!!!!!! even Bugatti
- Who give a shit some 1/4 mile i ask.. where u use that real life no where
- Should have raced the ZR1. Top of the line mustang with the GTR deserves
the top of the line Corvette.
- Mustang is the best value out of them. The vette is the worst. You can
never go wrong with a gtr
- nice video ¡¡¡
- Try the zo6 in 1 mile, I garanteed that zo6 will catch up the gtr
- The gtr is awesome because its a v6 with more power than almost all the v8s
- 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.
