Eh what is it? :confused:
It's a f****** expensive carbon-fiber chassised Porsche.

I saw a GT40/Ford GT driving around Wilmington the other day. It's actually much nicer in the flesh than in press/magazine photos. Photos make it look sort of big and ungainly, whereas it's actually a little, compact thing and has a roofline about a foot off the ground. I felt like I was driving an SUV following it...

About 3 months ago my neighbor across the street had a Porsche 993TT delivered via Interstate auto transport. Sharing the trailer with his 993TT were four CGT's! The truck driver let us get in and take a look upclose and personal. :thumbup:

One of these beauties actually flew by me, under a bridge mind you, accelerating at what sounded like wot. I thought Michael Schumacher was passing.... the sound is outrageously F1 like....

Pics are from a day at Buttonwillow, April 5th... I was too busy driving other cars that I didn't get a ride with the owner, but the thing sounds like an F16 jet when it's at WOT. If I can get hold of the short video my buddy took, I'll post a link to it here. Amazing!

Here's the video. It's about 13mb, so not a good thing for modem folks to try to get.

In the foreground you'll see a yellow Ferrari Enzo begin to approach the track entrance at Buttonwillow Raceway in CA. As the Enzo approaches the entrance you'll see a silver streak in the background. That's the Carrera GT on the front straight.

Turn up the volume to get the whole experience!

I will never understand people who buy sports cars with black and silver paint jobs. :tsk:

It's like seeing a F430 in silver, or a GT3 in silver.

TO me, it makes the car almost nothing special. :thumbdwn:

I saw one yesterday at the Tyson's Porsche dealership (we were looking at Cayennes). I hadn't seen one before, but the sticker was for like $450k and there were signs all over it saying "please don't touch".

:mad:

I've only seen a Carrera GT once "in the metal". I was driving down a winding 2-lane road and it was coming at me. I could tell that it was an exotic, but didn't realize it was a Carrera GT until it passed and I got a look at the back. Beautiful! Except it was silver. :thumbdwn:
