Depends on how much you want to spend. I looked at it that my brain was worth a lot so...... I ended up with an Arai but that was many years ago and it was salty expensive. I actually need a new one now because mine is of the age it needs to be replaced. I am in interested to see what others have bought recently. I remember back then the major players were Arai, Bell, and Simpson. This was 10 years ago so I don't now if things have changed.
Took in a really nice 1990 300ZX Twin Turbo in trade over the weekend. If you have been to C&C, then you have seen the car. Extensive upgrades, car is in super nice shape. Right under 99,000 miles. Black exterior, charcoal leather interior. Fast and ready for a new home. PM me if interested.
The CGT is no longer the badest road going P-car...Porsche announced the 2011 Porsche GT2RS is the most powerful road going Porsche ever built. Specs on this thing is just plain RIDICULOUS!! 620 HP. 0-60 is 3.4 sec. It's 205 MPH top speed is only limited by gearing says Porsche.. Its rear wheel drive not awd. Lots of Carbon Fiber used in its construction..... And here is the kicker Dan... Its only available in 6 speed MANUAL!!!!! MSRP is $245,000......Now go order you one.....
Had the chance to drive a 2010 Caymen S with the PDK tranny. What a fun little car! Got to say my favorite part is the launch control. That s$*t is fun!!! Car spools up to 6500 RPM and then launches.... pretty sweet toy! Sticker on the car was $76,000 that is way too much $$ if you ask me but I am not buying so it doesnt matter. But all in all cool
I say Zonda + F430. The 430 is a very reliable car without the belt changes as needed in previous F cars. Pick up a nice used 430 as your main toy and drive the snot out of it. You can get in a F430 cheap (as compared to your others on the list). Save your $$$ for your dream.... THE ZONDA!!!!! So recap: Dump the Diablo now, pick up a 430. Keep the CGT until you can trade it or sell it for the Zonda.
Since I now work at Tom Wood I get to play with some pretty sweet cars. I got the chance to drive the R series supercharged Jag over the weekend. Man is this thing sick! 510 Horsepower, 461 Lb Ft torque!!! I like to say this thing is wickedly civil. A tight, well made car with incredible power, and a laundry list of impressive features. And to top it, something I would have never imagined.... Jaguar is now JD Power's #1 new reliable car!!!
