The Chevy Corvette always. It's in Ferrari and Lamborghini territory now, atleast in terms of performance.

Have never driven any of these. But just by specs, reviews and past history, I would prefer:
Evo - nothing beats this VFM deal and killer looks and heritage.
Skyline GTR - RB26DETT is still the hottest. So I assume that this will be better as the engineers are same at NISMO.
Corvette - This car has always found an admirer in me as its looks beautiful and elegant, has the power, handles nicely and its price is so affordable (comparing with the 430, Gallardo and the likes)

Honestly, all the cars in the poll are very different. They do not indirectly or directly compete with each other (barring a few comparisons like the GTR Vs Corvette, Evo Vs STI).

I voted for the EVO BUT now i'm thinking since the pricing for the Skyline is out its most Horsepower/Dollar even cheaper than the corvette. While the Z06 = 400bhp for 60K+ usd you'll get the skyline for 68K USD with 480 bhp twin turbo. I'd definitely vote for the skyline against the Corvette but on and on i'd get the evo with the SST gearbox !

I love all the cars on the list. The 2008 Impreza sure takes a beating when it comes to the body design. All the others are impressive.
Its the Evo X for me.. all the way!!

Default Skyline

She is Nissan's best mare yet. This one surely handles a lot better than its previous models.

ZO6 is 505 hp and base price is $71xxx. So now what do you think ?
Its a 7 litre and still there is no gas guzzler tax on it. Highly appreciated.

I dont think the STi would be selling for $70k, nevermind 70k euros - surely has to be a mistake.

As for my choice, the GTR gets it - I think it has the best price/performance ratio, and a bit of practicality thrown in. And it could hang in with the Vettes and Vipers on a track. For sheer looks though, I love the Viper's brazen vulgarity.

The Evo and STi are wrongly matched up here, methinks.

Default 1 GTR in midnight purple please!!

Here's a list the Nordschleife fastest lap times.

Nordschleife fastest lap times - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Nissan GTR (for the nth time..its not called a Skyline anymore) is 4 seconds faster than the Z06..

I cant seem to find the evo X or the '08 STi on the list.can someone find out their times?

From the price point..the Sti would be the best buy..but then it doesn't belong in this lot at all..

Dodge viper looks menancing but the car with the go is the Corvette for me! 215 mph and great handling,
1 thing has made me lose everything i had for the evo , why is the rear so bad?

I liked the STI the pricing however seems too high , How can they justify $30000 between an STI and Evo ? or is that a typo ? At 70K Skyline feels a VFM option next to 60K Subaru.

By the way , Skyline gets my vote though it looks nothing compared to R32 GTR.Hope the car lives upto its reputation.
