Power-to-weight  5y ago

It's not power-to-weight ratio that makes a car faster, it's top speed that does. Plus you're comparing an '80s car to a '10s car.

..Even if i had unlimited money and dreams n what not, My outcome still wouldnt change. I dont think either is superior then the other, There both great F40s and Challangers both have alot of history, Both great cars, Id drive both everyday and to the tracks.

The word "chose" is here to blame, beceause it not say what we think behind of that.

If we talking about dreams, unlimited moneys, etc F40 is superior, it have history, soul, its amazing on track, wonderful toy.

But in real life... things are more comlicated, unless You are Joe Leno with his crew and money, You simply cloud not drive it everyday.

In other hand new Hellcat, its running costs are very high, but still possible for average guy. And its more usable in real life situations with it boot and 5 seats.

So for a dream car i chose F40, for real life Dodge wins.

I would do that, That would be the first thing i would do, I wouldnt keep it, But i wouldnt buy 10 Challengers.

And i have to disagree, Anybody looking to buy a performance car, Looks at all options, Even if they are buying a classic, Unless your sole decision is Ferrari itself, Or a particular brand, Or your just one of those brand whores or fanboys who wont look at anything else for "Certain" reasons. At least thats how i do it when looking for a car. Hell even when im looking for a comfort cruiser with an auto, Ill still check out Boxsters, Type Rs and Super Sevens, Of course thats just me, Cant speak for everyone.

@BR2
In that case you should choose F40, then sell it, and by 10 Challengers.
In reality there is no competition bitween this two. Someone who is going to by 25 years old classic Ferrari, would not even look at any Challenger (even with 1000hp).
Like NIN posted earlier this comparo was made just for fun, just to see Verdict change, when we would have performance figures for Hellcat

Nothing wrong with that, I might choose it as well, That may be one of the greatest Ferraris, But that is one of the greatest Dodges, What simply because its a "Ferrari" means we should automatically like it?...

I completely agree with Shaggys choice on to why he would take it, And there are people who would take a Dart over a 600 Pullman, I would take a current generation Civic Type R over a 600 pullman.

@FastestLaps: I know it sounds crazy, but the Dodge has a more aggressive engine and exhaust note, it has a proper trunk, it seats 5, doesn't cost $500,000.00, and it's easier to get it serviced, especially around where I live, I've never even seen a Ferrari around my stomping grounds. I do love the Ferrari, I honestly think the F40 is one of the greatest automobiles ever made, but having a Ferrari around my neck of the woods would be having a Killer Whale in your swimming pool, it would seem awesome, but what the car needs to stay on the road can't be found here, a local mechanic would look at a Ferrari engine like a monkey doing a math problem The only Italian cars I see around here are Fiat 500s, and not even the Abarths either.

You would chose a freaking 2014 Challenger over a half mil Ferrari classic supercar, one of the best Ferraris ever made?

Thats like choosing 2014 Dodge Dart or something over 1960s Mercedes 600 Pullman, because Dart is just as fast lol

Shaggy  5y ago

I'd still choose the Challenger.

Shaggy  5y ago

I'm impressed, but the Ferrari did it with a lot less power.

NIN  5y ago

Until actual test data comes in, power/weight ratio is the only stat.

"Both cars are equally fast." - but we know that they aren't.

I compared just for the fun of it. :)

Once some tests come in, it will be interesting to re-visit the results.
