Chevrolet Corvette Z06 - 3 Points
Saleen S7 TT - 2 Points
BMW M5 - 1 Point


That was a tough decision, I wanted to put the F430 in there but I absolutely love the Z06 and the Saleen S7's are unbelievable cars. Can't go bitchin about a 500 hp sedan either, the M5's looks match it's performance almost perfect, not to mention you get the choice between 400 or 500 horsepower. The Bugatti is an awesome car but I think it's overkill, to me it's a car that resembles an attention whore. The Nissan/Infinit GT-R isn't a bad car either, I love the front and rear end but I HATE that roof, it needs to look more level or somethin, plus it's a 2007 car.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 - 3 pts.
2006 Chevy Corvette Z06 - 2 pts.
2006 Pontiac Solstice – 1 pt.

The GC SRT8 is just an all around winner. First of all, Its a Jeep. Second of all, it's a 6.1 SRT Hemi V8. Third of all, its American. My reasoning is that it outpaces a Cayenne Turbo from 0-60 and has a top speed of 155. And I'm sure thats limited, which the Cayenne is probably too. Its fast as hell, and its a Jeep. Its got the power that only America could make. It really is the ultimate performance vehicle, on road and off.

The Chevy Corvette Z06 is an obvious contender because for like $60K or $70K, you get Ferrari 430 performance. And again, it's American.

And last but not least, the Pontiac Solstice. It's Miata matching performance with American flair. And the $20K price tag, its a winner in everyones book. And the soon-to-be turbo version just sweetens the deal. And i'm just fanticising here, but a coupe version fitted with a V8 (which can fit in the Solstice now) would be just awesome. And the perfect name would be "Equinox". But Chevy took it for a boring cute ute...

Those are my nominations.

1st. Zonda F(has 7.3 AMG V12) (3PT)
You guys should listen to the video of Zonda's engine. Sounds like music to me!

Pure Grand Touring with the ability to perform like a race car.

Has monstrous torque, very comfortable, easy to modify, can smoke E60 M5 anytime at the quarter mile.

Re: Car Comparisons' Car Of The Year 2005 - Nominations (read instructions first!)

Ford GT - 3pts
Ford Mustang GT - 2pts
Ford F-250 Powerstroke TD KR - 1pts

1) Ford GT is one of the hottest things out, and keeps up with lambos, ferraries, and porshe. What more could you ask for half the price?

2) Mustang GT is also, alot to handle for under or right at 30K, easily customized and makes a huge apperance.

3) F-250 Powerstroke turbo diesel, king ranch, can pull anything, go anywhere, and look good doing it. Simple as it gets, F-250 is a common mans work horse.

just to make sure, do you want to select the 8th model over the newer 9th that came out in 2005?
