I have raced my friends 911turbo S several times from similar speeds. I had 390 at the wheels till I lost my tune...now i dont know what it is. In this video you'll see my racing him. Him and I are neck and neck from all speeds. He thinks my car is slightly quicker but I know he doesn't shift as fast as could be done. So I'm sure the C6Z would pull away from the current turbo S. Once both cars are in 5th gear it may be a different story. The turbo doesn't die..at all..in 5th gear like our cars do.

Mods..this was a run for a charity event sponsored by a local Ferrari dealership in which the cops shut down a long road by our beaches. We eventually caught up to some other cars but I assue you this wasn't illegal in anyway. No need to remove the link. Thank you!

you can go to www.ferrarili.com for proof of the above.

I may be mistaken...but he did not say the DIC said anything.

When you start the car the dash looks like an arcade game and it's pretty cool. It's neat to watch and would urge start/restarts for that reason alone.

Exactly- entertainment purposes only.

Yes, C6Z launches harder, but Turbo with AWD is EASIER to launch hard.

I had my c6 z51 on the track at a Porsche Club DE at motor sports ranch in Texas. I expected to out run the boxters, but i was able to out accelerate a 966 turbo. i was in the green run group, and MAYBE the guy in the 966 turbo was not accelerating as quickly as he could. but i would be about 30 feet behind him and the start of the straight, and by the time we got to the end of the straight i was on his tail.

I let an instructor take my car out in the blue run group and he passed EVERYONE

I can only image what the z06 is like to drive

C6 Z51 will not pull a 996 Turbo, Turbo S or GT2.

You can drive the C6Z and leave it overnight in a hotel parking lot. If you leave the Enzo in a hotel parking lot it most likely will be gone.
You keep your Z and I will throw in mine, which is a whole ten days old. Give me the Enzo. O-60 times for the Enzo are about half a second faster than the Z06, low 3's.

Most of the 430's, a lot of the 360's and more and more cars are going to paddle shifters.

And I will take my chances with it being gone in the morning...that's absurd.

and I bet the chances of having Vette stolen are higher than Enzo.

What the hell are you gonna do with a stolen Enzo?
Sell it? LOL Joy ride it? ROFLMAO

The only way Enzo will get stolen if itís getting exported somewhere into Middle East, etc.
Still I bet it would be so easy to track (1 of 399 EVER MADE )

The guy, most likely, did not know the limits of his car as well.
