    Clearly a ferrari forum, but im sure some people can appreciate other marques just as much. Anyone like? saw some pictures today that made me think twice. used to think it looked like the guy that put it all together took too many different styling elements, but I think a CGT in black is MEAN! Compares how to Enzo and evn Murcielago, as its right in the middle? really, it should compare to the F50 but thats a different story altogether.

    Great car - saw one in person - very nice. I would say that this one would be more "practical" / useable than an Enzo. Although, not saying I would prefer it to an Enzo. Great/awesome sound.

    good call, more practical, and realistically, in my view not quite in the same league for that reason. Is it a road car though, the murci definitely is, in fact, as fast is it might be in going around, I dont think its much of a track car due to weight, but, it is a quite comfortable road car, which would you all pick? I think maybe the CGT is the way i found the murcielago to be, far better in real life than pictures.

    I think looks and heritage wise I'd take a enzo.If i was going on sound alone I'd take the CGT.Phenominal sounds from that engine.

    Cool shots with Jerry. I love the CGT. Would take one over an Enzo in a heartbeat.

    I think its an awsome car, But I love Porsche. It should compete with the
    Enzo, It has over 600HP and looks great in silver :) Yes Please.

    I would much rather own a ferrari than I would a porsche is what i was saying.Ferrari is on a whole other level than porsche.If you want a SUV to haul your kids around get a porsche.

    I have a nice color shot of that "new boxster" (I doubt it will look that nice in production) on my home PC, I may dig it up later...

    Correct me if im wrong but Porsche has a better racing record than Ferrari, just as much if not more history and performance without the maintance.

    I think I would be rougher with the CGT, something I wouldn't do with a Ferrari. By rough I mean making the tach spike to red line on downshifts all of the time and just plain 'ol drifting through every turn. To be really mean I might not let it warm up first either. It just seems so expendable.

    To each his own for driving position, car choice, girls, profession, etc. No one more right or wrong than another. BUT i think it is silly to have some kind of weird loyalty to a car brand. You will find that a lot of ferrari owners also own porsches and vice versa. I myself judge every car on its own merits. I drive the cay i always wanted and i still appreciate well done ferraris. One thing unique to ferrari though is extreme service costs and procedures.

    Good ol Jerry gets the first us carrera. So when you see one around nyc say Hellooooooooooo.
