50 launch controls and 5th gear review of turbo S

Recommended Posts

Nothing surprising here. I think what bothers me the most is that they take these cars out of context. The Noble is cool. They could never get it into this country with out making it a kit car which means it has absolutely no value in this market just like the Caterham 7. Once you spend your money on these cars it is gone for good. Even though I think the GT-R is one of the ugliest cars I have ever seen you have to respect it. For 1/2 the money you get a very capable if unrefined car which you can actually load your wife and a weeks worth of luggage into and go places. The Turbo S is not perfect. But, it is **** close especially from the perspective of a regular guy like me. I do not race cars and could care less what they do on a track. I never race people out of stop lights. That is just plain stupid abuse of testosterone. If launch control were an option in this car I would never spend the crazy money for it. What I want is a refined car in which I can drive fast without worrying about losing it, in which I can put my wife and a weeks worth of luggage, bikes or skis on the roof and a very big smile on my face. There is no substitute.
