Well, Ferrari fans have somthing more to rejoice about. The Ferrari Enzo was taken on track by the Stig and it defeated the CGT and SLR thereby becoming the fastest car on track (like adding 2 + 2). The official timing was 1:19 while the CGT has 1:19.8 and SLR 1:20.9. Unfortunately though the Enzo was deemed to be suitable for the uncool wall.

This is wierd. I just saw that the Ford GT is now in the Sub-Zero Wall. Last I saw in the show, they had placed it in the uncool wall.

AW-freaking-SOME!!! I want taht episode....searching around racing flix right now.

Aerodynamics rule, baby! I remember reading in the Autocarindia (or was it OD) that the Enzo was the quickest in acceleration and had the max top speed too. Speed and handling make the king, eh?

Just what I was telling Revvmaster the other day. It would be more of a battle of whether the Stig gets the Paddle Shifts right or the Stick Shift right. Majority of the cases, they will get the Paddle Shift right. Hence, the Enzo wins. My vote still with the CGT, even though there is not much in it.

GTO try sleepyfish.com for the vid or viper007 bond if you want the complete ep. From wht i heard, they featured the XJ220, Pagani, Mac F1 and F40 in this.

Also, not to discredit the Enzo but someone posted a very good argument on SC.net saying that the Stig was not able to get the complete potential of the CGT due to its clutches and some other nfactors he kept spinning it. SO mayyyyyyyyyybe the CGT isn't at all so very slow in comparison to the Enzo.

CGT comes second. Foul play.

Where is Walter Rohrl. Get the best at Ferrari (Dario Benuzzi) to take on the best at Porsche (Walter Rohrl). Let them take their cars head to head on TG. They know their cars best and can take them to their limits. Stiggy baby seems to be getting old i'd say.
