    Just got my Murcielago spyder 1/18 scale model. I was checking it compared to my F50 & my Carrera GT models. The Murc is better looking than the CGT and about the same in a different sort of way from the F50. Which do you like better.
    Almost forgot Pagani has a roadster now but I dont have that model yet

    I really dont like the look of the Murcielago.
    The CGT looks ok , not amazing IMO . I prefer it with the tops on and in red or black .
    The F50 is superb, esp with the hard top on.
    Plus it sounds really really good .

    Is MB launching an SLR roadster soon ? The SLR is really more of a superGT car though instead of a pure supercar I think. Maybe the 550 Barchetta was also a Super GT car. Ive heard rumors that the 575 replacement will include a spyder version

    So have you managed any performance comparisons yet :). Any 0-60 launches. Do you find carpet, lino or even tiles work best for the quickest launch? :)

    I think the Murci and CGT look fantastic. Not a fan of the F50 at all.

    The F50 is a beauty compared to the Enzo which as a comedian said "Looks like my azz" :)

    murcielago looks good from everywhere, f50 is like a suppository, only OK with the roof off, and in black. The Carrera GT is really something, from head on its an imposing figure, the back looks good, even the profile is good, but, from 1/4 angle it looks lame. I just wanna see it throw down with the enzo side by side, no factory drivers. anybody have an idea which will be faster?

    It depends if you mean top speed or acceleration through the gears.In top it would probably be the Enzo but in all other standards I am afraid it will probably be the CGT. All tests that I have read so far comment on how warp speed fast it is. And some of these testers are people that I know have also driven the Enzo. Comments continually repeated like: i have never been in any car that that accelerates this fast, probably say it all. Undoubtedly however , I suppose we will find out soon.
