    Im not 100% sure which would win out of the cars, but i can tell you, the Enzo would make a bit of ground on the long straights. The CGT tops out at 331km/hr, Enzo is out at 352km/hr. Apparently the CGT corners better than the Enzo, so im not 100% sure. It sure would be interesting to see these two beast's go at it head to head. Heck, i'll gladly take home the loser!

    I dont think the Enzo would be faster. Dont forget the CGT has thousands of miles of developpement on the Ring. The Enzo doesnt.

    I don't think either of these cars would see close to top speed at the Nurburgring.

    They would. A multi-mile straight has a way of doing that.

    What about the Start/Finish straight?? Just after Galgenkopf, through the Dottinger-Hohe....
    Thats one hell of a long straight. They might not hit MAX speed, probably Nardo is the place for that. But they sure as hell come close!

    Wasn't an Enzo clocked recently at 360kmph?

    I heard the theoretical maximum speed of the Enzo was around 370kmph.

    The Enzo had a projected top speed of about 378km/hr, as tested in Ferrari's Wind Tunnel. But you have to factor in TailWinds, Crosswinds and road surface to get a more realistic figure. Im recalling this off an old Magazine article so i could be a little bit off.
    I was going to bring up PGR2 Ryan, but now im glad you bought it up!
    Top speed on my Enzo on the Ring'...373km/hr. Damn........
