    Thanks for adding it though. I have issues with the metric system.

    Not what I would really call a "production car" plus the most important thing about any car is the color and the stereo unless you are planning to run it at Le Mans!

    Re: USA car Hennessey Venom GT breaks production car 300kmh world record

    I need to buy myself a fast car. So many choices out there today.

    Do you pick up a few year old CTS-V, M3, C63 and use it as a daily driver

    or

    Pick up a 5 year old corvette, mustang, etc as a second car
