"Best "Bang for your Buck" on the market"5.0 starson by rolex-baby
Pros: Great styling, power, and handeling
Cons: Midget back seat
Summary: I must say that in my years of being an exotic car broker that I have driven just about every sports car on the planet. From Ford GT's to Ferrari's to Porsches...I have driven them all and I must say that after I test drove the '06 G35 Coupe, well I was sold. I literally put in an order for a '06 Black on Black Auto with Nav, Rear Active Steer, and Aero Kit. I decided to go with the Auto due to all the traffic driving that I do on a daily basis(60mi to work and back!) You really do not lose much with the Auto due to its smooth shifting Tiptronic transmission. I have owned a 2001 BMW 330i and a 2003 MBZ E320, both of which were equipped with similar transmission but which due not even hold a light to the one in this beautiful sports car!
When I went in for the test drive the Dealer had me get onto a freeway entrance that was a complete 180 Degree Turn. Upon entering the turn he told me, "Slam the gas as hard as you want". Delighted I hit the turn at about 55mph and pretty much doo-dooed my pants! I just couldn't beieve the way the car stuck to the pavement!
I dont want to get too long winded but what I want to communicate is that there may be more prestigious and high performance cars out there( BMW M3, Audi S4, Porsche Caymen) but you will definitly be paying the $$ to drive one. This car is truly a one of a kind and once I have had my fun with this one I will be ordering the all new '08 G35 Coupe that should be out late next year.
