Why are we comparing a Camaro and a m3 in terms of performance per dollar?

Let's talk track times shall we? You list something as terrible as MTs figure-8 but leave out the ZL1 and M3 'ring' times? Sounds fishy to me.

The ZL1 ran the ring in 7:41 and at a whopping 4100lbs! Has a 60K+ M3 even broken 8 minutes yet? C'mon. Dollar for dollar the ZL1 whoops the M3 ... on the track and on the street (light to light, roll, you name it).

Not the mention the ZL1 is super mod friendly and on the cheap. For 2K in mods you could have this thing making 750-800 BHP on pump gas. All of this with a world class MR suspension.
