WW2. One of the last truly justifiable reason countries went to war. Hitler and his Nazi's were monsters, but countries came together and put him and his lunatics down. All paid with blood to do so. Some made greater sacrifices than others, but in the end it was a team effort. My family lost two uncles in the conflict. Both were pilots.

Lets hope it never has to happen again.

You can kick my tailpipe when you catch up to me in a trying-to-turn-like-a-cruiser stang
a go-cart turns sharper, maybe you want one of those kiddo? :p
If you can't whip a v8 RWD monster around a corner you don't know how to handle it and should be sitting it out anyways.

Ford Mustang GT (not even close to a top model)
Curb Weight: 3401 lbs.
4.6-liter V8 with 315 hp
5 speed manual
060 mph (097 km/h) acceleration in 4.2 seconds

not exactly light weight vrs heavy weight boxers but 1,400 pounds diff does a lot and a lotus is hardly a focus.

I can't believe I'm taking this from a... (shudder) British ( ) site... but

Focus RS at 1.29.3
Shelby GT500 at 1.30 dead



Shows that a well built and more practical compact can compete with a v8 monster

I know the answer to this - and that answer lies with BBC 2's Top Gear UK.

NOTE: That's right - Top Gear UK. Not US, Not Austrailia, not Fifth Gear, Top Gear UK.

All this talk about which car is fastest is kinda redundant unles you're on a track or an un-restricted motorway in Germany.

Bottom line, The Aston Martin DB9 will get you from A to B looking way cooler than anything else

Except maybe a well looked after DB5

Edit: Oh yeah, just to hit back a bit for the Brits, at least the sport we call Football involves a ball controlled with the feet

Way cooler than anything else? What about a Panther DeVille? I would crush 50 Aston Martin cars and throw in a Austin Healey for the cherry topping just to drive a Panther for a month.
