The Ford GT's Nurburgring lap time was 7:40.6 not 7:52. Thats one huge error here.

Easy, the GT, it looks much better, MUCH more fun to drive, its just as exclusive, but at $139,000 compared to $455,000, its a damn sight cheaper too, especially since it can keep up with a much more powerfull and expensive car in a straight line and around track, and has a higher top speed, 212Mph vs 208Mph!!
