This is correct.

We saw your photos of the car at the race track - so I have to ask you, when you looked at the car and mentally compared it to BMW's, Audi's, Yugo's and Holden's did you then turn to the owner and say "Fuck your car looks like shit compared to these other cars"...

Or did you look and hear and see and think to yourself "Holy Mother of God" as it blasted past on yet another lap.

I think we know the answer to that one.

Isn't that the point once the cars arrive at the race track though?

Doesnt a track day sort of filter out all the magazine and bench racing bullshit and the cars begin to stand on their own merits - and the interior means diddly squat.
Don't get so defensive mate, I wasn't having a go at the car.
I wasn't being defensive - I was simply asking the obvious quesiton - and that is as critical as every one is (even me - whom is critical of the "overweight fat Lambo Murci") when we see the car in the flesh, we don't run up to the owner and say "Whoa - that Lambo sure is fat and unwieldy" - instead we are struck by what the car is - not what it isn't.

But not everyone agrees - and the C6 does rival BMW and Audis interior.

Which makes me wonder why do people insist on cross class/model comparisons anyway.
