What we all need to realize is that there is a very low chance of running into one of these cars at the beginning of a "twisty" road, and having the opportunity to beat it. In 95% of our driving a car like the SRT8 GC is going to be far superior. Yes you might sustain 3 mph faster throw the cloverleaf off of the interstate, but as soon as the road begins to straighten, all you will be seeing is two center exit exhaust pipes playing a deep baritone symphony as they pull away. That being said, its still not even a good comparison. Can you buy an SRT8 for $10,000? Why don't you compare the new STI to it, if you want to be a little more fair.
Wow, finally a comment based on reallity. Thank you
