F1 for me!

But any Group A 32 would top trump it.

F1 for me too

Fastest lap isn't the be all and end all of a car... after all an Atom wouldn't be far off, and an SC would probably beat it
Knowing the prices Mines charge, the F1 is probably cheaper too LOL

F1 any day of the week, Mines 34 is nice but nothing compared to a F1.

And comparing a tuned car vs standard, who cares.

It would be a hard choice, but I would probably go for the F1...

They're pricey no doubt, but I think the quality matches the price.

I always wondered how much it would cost to get the same build done by them as this ultimate response R34 of theirs. Intrigued to find out.

A tune of that calibre with so much attention to detail in terms of sheer performance.

Don't know how much it would cost from Mines, but I bet it would be considerably cheaper than what F1's go for these days:



Go to about 10 minutes if you cant be bothered to watch the whole thing

Easy, F1. Then sell it, buy the Mines and have several hundred K still to play with.

Very inflated price indeed.

Would never pay that much money for it (even if I were a multimillionaire), not worth 2.3mil to me. not even half of that in fact.

These guys paying that sort of money are collectors, so they might know something that I don't, probably worth for them.

You can get other great cars at a fraction of the price.
