Haha, that'* pretty incredible. Maybe people will start realizing that our cars are not a joke. I know I've made a few people believers.

Pretty decent (yet amateur) pot-shot at BMW. If I had the money, I'd still take a 550i or M5 over a G8.

Don't get me wrong the G8 is still nice, but its not a BMW. The continual comparisions to the German lux sedans and the G8 baffles me.

My 745i get s0-60 in 5.9 so its fast enough for me considering its 6 years old. The G8 looks to be an awesome car for the money. Its about time the 300c gets some competition.

"Even the car mags got the G8s back"

The covers show a 08 Challenger, a Masaerati, and a bunch of print about robot armies. Besides, since when it Popular Mechanics a "car mag?"

The 550i is a better comparison, but I think I would take the G8 over it. Although you do look a lot more classy in a BMW than a G8.
