I think it's fun teasing the Italian car nuts into a fury. I'm a Vette fan because I'm a red blooded American and the Vette is a red blooded American too. Don't get me wrong, I think the Italian cars are pretty awesome. If I could afford one I'd have one sitting next to my Vette(s). Generally speaking, they're more refined and have much better interiors. I guess I'm just a bang for the buck guy and for me you just can't beat a Corvette.

This video is what I'm talking about...

They both have there place. But you can not compare the two. The only vette that could scare Farrari is the zr1. But iam sure that still dosn't scare them. Like the 599 the f12 is a gt car. It is ment for long easy drives. It is not ment for the track. The same gos for the vette. Now you can campare the zr1 to the 458 italia. Both cars were made for the track. The Farrari is about 100k more. But they are closer in hp and weight.

If I never had to worry about money again. There would be no vette in my name. I know I would have a Porsche gt3 rs, Zonda r, BMW M3, a well tuned mustang, tuned wrx, a tuned 370z, And a 458 italia. And a few others.
keep your stick on the ice.

Look guys, comparing the history and elegance of a Ferrari to a vette is like drinking Boones Farm to a fine bourdeaux. Ferrari is elegance and craftsmanship at its peak. A vette, although nice, is a working mans Ferrari IMO. I'm just saying the new F12 has oddly similar lines and look. The purr of the Ferrari engine is unmistakable.
Neither car would every make it in my garage as they are not practical. Give me a truck any day. Can't pull a boat with a stallion.

To hell with th Italian cars. Nothing touches them fine German cars. And if its all about hp and speed they got that too. I believe its called a Bugatti Veyron. Personally I like the Mercedes E55 AMG.

One of my former boss's had one. He let me drive it to his house or to various places every now and then. That car was completely amazing. I absolutely love that car.

I had an E55. The way that thing pulled was nothing short of beastly. Once it got into the twisties though, different story. :)

Mustang better than both?

Having mustang being put into the same discussion as these other actual sports cars is an utter embarrassment to sports cars. The solid rear axle, over weight, nose heavy pigs are not even close to being sports cars. All the time I spent around sports car racing they were a joke, people laughed they were okay as long as you didn't have to turn or slow down....

It's mostly true what you guys are saying about comparing the two. I just like to poke a little fun when the opportunity arises. They're in two different classes. The Ferrari has been engineered and built using no budget constraints. Using R&D from F1, again no budget. The Vette on the other hand is in a world of budgets. I think they've put together a pretty darned good car given the constraints of the budget. It makes me wonder what the Vette engineers could do with the spaghetti guys' money.

I guess I'm just a little ornery. Sorry Robert. :)

Ok I realize that it has no place being compared to a Ferrari. I was trying to get under some peoples skin.
But it can't be compared to a Corvette?
The Mustang/Corvette rivalry is probably the oldest domestic SPORTS car rivalry in the country.
The Mustang isn't a sports car? What is it then?
You say they can't corner. They weren't designed for it.
They were designed to go in a straight line and beat Corvettes and Camaros and they do that pretty well.

The Mustang is a saloon. A Corvette is a coupe.
