A little off topic but...

Since you guys know cars I'm hoping you can help me with this. All things being equal would you pick a Lamborghini Murcielago or a Ferrari Enzo. Again all things being equal so based on looks and performance which can be modified on both.

C6 Corvette Z06 hand down. I drove the Murcielago and the F430 and if you want a true drivers car, the Z06 is by far the best man-auto connection you can purchase. Not to mention I was able to pay cash for it instead of partial cash/loan for the Lambo or Ferrari.

Enjoy those videos!!

I love every minute of my 2007 Black/Ebony 2LZ Z06.. the best driving experience I have ever had!!

And the Z06 looks every bit expensive as our old Bentley :

I'm assuming you are looking at the cars because you want to stand out. No doubt the Enzo is the rarer of the two. I think its close to a million new vs the Lambo which is 300K I think. Big difference in price. Not sure if that would influence your decision. Eithere way you can't go wrong. Enzo would get way more attention and both have more power than you could possibly need.

I'd go with the Enzo if I had both of the keys N my hand out of the two.

I'm with 760 though that Vette is what's up. Performance for way less.

You may get performance with the Z06 as it can keep up with cars that cost four times as much but the thing it lacks is a nice interior. If it weren't for that I would have purchased one when I was given the opportunity. Another thing is, I loved the way they drove >100 mph but once you got over that it got scary just because the steering wasn't very responsive at all and it was hard to tell what the car was trying to do. Also, with the interior being the way it is, it seems GM just likes cheap, plastic-y interior panels.

No doubt the Z06 is aimed towards being a racing car (and I'd put one up against the best of the best any day) but so are Ferraris and Lambos and they have much better interiors.

Have you driven the new Z06? I drive my 2007 Z06 to work 2 times a week and then drive it 45 minutes to the track every Saturday or Sunday (sometimes both). I then proceed to spank the Porsche and Ferrari owners that had to trailer their cars to the track.. then I drive home.

The new Z06 is not a sports car, it has achieved the rank of supercar. Drive one to find out what I am talking about.. this is not the plasticky, rattly, nasty Corvette of before.

I would have to say the Enzo, simply for it's exotic nature, to me the enzo is above and beyond overall, but I still love the Mercy no matter what.

My boss actually looked at both the Murcielago and Gallardo (pronounced Guy-Ardo btw ) and ended up hating both and buying a Ford GT instead! He's pretty die hard american though.

It's tough comparing two extremely great things.

If you have the millions laying around like most people seem to anymore, buy both and take one back after 2-3 months.

Take care!

The Enzo isn't good for everyday driving, IMO. However, I'd love to see myself shopping for groceries for my wife in a Mercialago.
