I think the Benz just has different wheels on... you see that a lot with tuner shop cars... givces you variety.

The car is badass, but I don't like either wheel on it...

Apple, meet orange.

The GT3 and ZR1 don't belong in this comparison.

You might have a case with the Lexus, but you'd be more inclined to compare it to other hybrids, no?

GT1 and ZR1 are sport cars, we are talking about luxury cars, in the same price range. Something that has 4 doors and if you have to be able to put a babyseat in the back if your wife gets knocked up.

A four door luxury sedan is not a sports car. It may be powerful, but it's not a sports car.

You see what I dont understand is the concept behind making a luxury sedan the same as a sports car though.

I understand paying a premium for a classy interior, a smooth ass ride, and just a balling out car in general, like a bentley or something. But I dont understand buying a luxury car, and then turning it sport. Now I dont know much about this Alpina B7 car, but Im going to go off on a limb here and say that its very sports like. (at least thats what it looks like to me).. So I guess where I get lost is, why have a Luxury 4 door sport sedan, when you can just go pure sports car for the same price - in some cases less, and at least the car is good at something.

im not saying its not a nice car. i think it looks great. im just in awe at the price tag.
