Just went up against me... I think he wishes he hadn't. Gave him a friendly wave and flash as I came off. Nothing. Humiliation is hard I guess, when you've spent that much on a car, only to be 'owned' by a mere rice rocket. :D

What fun. ;)

Still much rather be going home in the 458 though.....sorry!
Not sure of the point of the comment?? I think the irony may have escaped you... I'd much rather be a millionaire and not have to work either!


However, as a mere mortal, with a crappy Jap rice rocket, that's made from tin cans and has the cache of a Kia Sorrento, it's rather satisfying to be able to hand a near £200k car it's ass on a plate. :smokin:

Very childish I know! :D

One advantage of owning any Ferrari compared with a Datsun is the availability of genuine spare parts for cars older than 10 years old.

I did the same thing to my mate in his 458 a year ago :) he was gob smaked. I told him my car was stock (which it wasn't at the time I was running 650r with down pipes) he could not belive a stock gtr would gap him so bad lol. I couldn't be so cruel with him so I told him my cars running 650. The 458 Is dream car for me tho, love every thing about it.

Poor guy must have been devastated, I wonder how he sleeps at night.

(on a big pile of money with many beautiful ladies).

Hehe. I'm sure he won't be looking for counselling after the event, however I'd be surprised if he wasn't feeling a teeny bit deflated after being outgunned by a rice rocket.

Ok, you buy a Ferrari for the event, the prestige, the image etc, etc. But you do also buy one for the performance. This car was brand new and after spending the best part of £200k, the guy will have assumed that he'd show the inferior GTR a clean set of wheels (otherwise he would't have goaded me into following him).

I know I'd be rather peeved if I'd lost out to a Corsa VXR, for example!

Of course I could be wrong, and he could have been quite accepting of having spent nearly £200k on the so called pinnacle of motoring, to be beaten by a Jap tin can... ;)

One thing I seemed to of found with Ferrari owners is they don't seem to drive on the edge, maybe the worry of writing them off?

I do remember handing a guy in a 2011 911 Turbo S, and I really loved it lol!

The only thing I'd be thinking if I were him would be, why didn't I wait a few months and pay the same money for a 458M with a 680 turbo charged engine instead.

At the end of the day he is the one going home in a 458 - I doubt he will lose much sleep, I know I wouldn't.

Any car can be modded to go faster than another, its does not ultimately mean I would rather have it over my GTR. No doubt there are plenty of Evos out there that cost less than my GTR and would wipe the floor with me, not to mention Ferraris, McLarens, Lambos etc. Does that mean I would rather have a 700bhp Evo over those cars? Hell no.
