I think your list is pretty good, except the mustang. I believe I saw the mustang in question was the PP2, which is the baby brother to the GT350. So, I think, the mustang has a chance at being in the top 5.

Thatís a good point and youíre probably right. Plus I donít want Dust to blow a gasket.

I have no idea but I highly doubt the Alfa will make it to the end of the test without breaking down.

More good points...
The performante is built on an amazing platform, riding on Trofeo Rs, and its normally aspirated powertrain might just be perfect for track duty.

The ZR1 may also place lower because of how past Vettes had performed in the same test. MT must also be like: "Mid engined corvette, any day now."

Grand Sport (7th place)

1. Porsche 911 GT2 RS
2. Who cares
.......
12. Who cares

If youíre not first, youíre last.

But seriously, the M5 makes huge power with AWD and is a major launch for BMW, but surprised MT has it on their list. This and the Kia can be removed to make it a top ten list.
