    A 700hp road car is completely pointless and only a small fraction of owners would ever use it. It's just bragging rights for silly drag race videos.

    Imagine if they built a car that weighed 1100Kg (like the original 246GT) and had 400hp. Wouldn't that be a great drive? Of course it almost already exists, take an Alfa 4C and drop the Maserati V6 into it.

    Instead we have the greenwash delusion of loading cars up with 200Kg of batteries and electronics so they can drive 25kms - just enough to get around the ICE bans that socialist city councils (that less than 20% of residents vote for) are implementing in places like London.

    Precisely. I remember the first time I went out with a group of supercar enthusiasts at Lakeside. They would MASH it once they got on the main straight with me chasing them with 150 less hp, only to have to brake so hard that my eyeballs would threaten to dislodge from their sockets, because they would change down 3 gears to take the right handed carousel. Useless amount of power for them. I remember watching one guy in a McLaren lose the car 1/3 the way down the straight because he had cold tyres and just lit it up too hard. Useless.

    I recon the 360 has more than enough power for the road

    Of course it is. 400hp is more than enough for most people to get into serious trouble.

    Hey, I don't think ANY car is worth $50k !!!

    I paid $4400 for one of the last E49s in 74 (?) , brand new so how can they be any more than $50k tops ????

    Looks good, runs like a Swiss clock at 121,000 klm, albeit 7000klm on current engine oil , must do that soon
    Cheers Chin ( due for belts, heat exchanger and rear tyres

    I would say every 60,000 klm or 10 years to be on the safe side and for good reason, if it goes it can wreck the gearbox or you could get away with just a clean up and replace if your lucky
