With 0.91g''s on the skip pad and shooting through the 660ft slalom at 65.7mph, this baby is nearing super-car numbers. The 3.45 rear gears not only propel this American icon of a sports car forward with stunning quickness but can stop better than most cars in the world due to its powered 4-wheel anti-lock and vented disc brakes. An exhaust note that is music to your ears as you climb in speed due to its full stainless steel exhaust.
