    GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    If you had a choice and money was not an issue, and you could get either car readily, which car would you guys choose? The other option is keep my GT2. Any opinions?

    Re: GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    Money no issue,
    It depends, do you want Manual or F1?
    I prefer manual, alghout I don't know the F1 very well.
    The Ferrari is arguably way more beautiful but if you're after pure racing, the GT3 is better, plus the GT3 is a car you can do lots of fine tuning on (suspension, etc...)
    I also think it is more robust.
    Money no object, I really don't know what I would do, it's the usual battle between heart and brain.
    The GT3 is the better car no question about it, but the Stradale is... well, it's the Stradale
    Same thing as the Enzo though, you're not likely to see many around on the tracks.
    So far, most Enzo owners have even admitted they do not intend to take their cars on the track (in France at least, I know this for a fact)
    It's always the same story, fantastic cars but they're not driven
    Fanch.

    Re: GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    if money is no issue at all i'd get a challenge stradale with perspex windows for the heart and early sunday morning rideouts and a 996TT as daily driver.

    Re: GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    For sundays: Stradale (it's the better looking car)
    For the track: GT3 RS

    As fanch said: heart or brain...

    GT3 RSCS when (if) it comes out

    All GT3RS's are based on the Club Sport

    Keep your GT2 or get the Lamborghini Murcielago.

    If it were my choice, I would keep my GT2 and pick up a 360 CS.

    Grant, yes I know that, but if you cast your mind back to the 993 era, there was a much harder version of the 993RS called the 993 RSCS, where the focus was mainly on weight reduction.

    Mercedes Cl65 AMG .......heheheh or just keep ya GT2, its top of the line porche behind the carrera gt

    The CL 65 AMG has only one little problem: it has problems to put the power on the street.
    I hope that AMG does something about it before first cars go to customers.

    If there is something I really hate on our two AMG cars, there are two things:
    1. ESP (oh boy, it is soooooooooo intrusive, I hate it and I hope that the optional limited slip diff. will change things).
    2. Steering

    It doesn't make sense to give away a GT2 for a GT3 RS (unless you seriously race it on the track) or a 360 Challenge Stradale. Where's the logic behind it, you don't get a better car???
    The only car I'd give a GT2 away for, would be the Lamborghini Murcielago. I really don't understand why people don't take this little beast in consideration, it is a rocket, despite it's weight (outruns the GT2 in Hockenheim!).

    Re: GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    id go for the stradale more easy to pick up the ladys

    Now that makes sense.
    The problem is: what happens if one cannot stand to the car's "promises"?

    Re: GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    RC, the problem with Lamborghinis in the US, no matter how well built the Murcielago and Gallardo are now under Audi's umbrella is it's " dealer" network and history of dismal service operations. Many of the dealers here are just a step above " Tony's Corner Garage ". Personally, I think combining Audi and Lamborghini dealers in the US would be a win-win for both marques here as they have both always been and continue to be a half - step below/behind their competition in our market. Since they will share so many engine and drivetrain architectures , it makes sense to combine them .
    Anybody reading this at VAG ?!

    Re: GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    The smell, feel, looks, and my favorite - sound of the 360 CS makes me desire this car much more than any GT2 or GT3. Fanch was correct, heart vs. brain. Personally, if I please the heart, the brain will follow.

    Very interesting, I didn't know that.
    You're right, combining Audi and Lamborghini Service would be a huge improvement then but if I think about my local Audi dealer in Germany (my wife had one, it is still in the family), the service is very very bad.

    I just can't forget the Murcielago I saw in South France last year. It drove by and behind it, a Ferrari 360 Modena. I can't help it but the Murcielago looked much more aggressive and masculine, don't have the words to explain it.
    Well, I guess I just fell in love...

    Re: GT3 RS or 360 Stradale?

    So you fell in love because it looks more aggressive and masculine, huh?... Now I think you're wife should start to worry...
