It's a twin turbo, should anyone really be suprised? Obviously, they cannot create a naturally aspirated beast like it's counterparts, which says quite a lot.

Having a fast or really nice car is one thing. But on what street in Ontario could you possibly use the power of 400hp+. Thats insane. So you get to 100 in less than 3 secs, just to slam on the brakes, just as fast. Especially if your driving up to wasaga to show off your car on long weekend.

All in all, they are all amazing machines, and would make my stock 325 look like a horse and carriage on the track. Plus insurance already doesn't like me, with any of those cars, they'd charge me $100,000/year to drive it.

Le Mans, American Le Mans Series, European Le Mans Series

The Saleen does ok in them, realiability was an issue. But the Corvettes typically dominated that category: GTS. The main competition for the Saleen was the Ferraris

You can't compare race cars to street cars. They're not the same thing.

Top Gear is a staged show, and it's been proven.
I do not believe anything they say on it. Just watch it for entertaining purpose
