That's actually worse. They added 200lbs with no AWD? Yikes. Also, non-ZCP is not all that much better than the F80 ZCP.

Same torque, only 30hp more but with an extra 200lbs to haul around - and ugly.

Yeah the torque on the "core" model is the same as the non-competition F80. HP is up about 50 over the non-comp F80, and interestingly it hits lower in the rev range (6500 v. 7200). But I have never really thought "my car needs 50 more hp." I certainly have never thought "this car needs 200 lbs more."

In light of this I'm pretty happy with the F80, tbh.

Jesus you have to post a CW before you include a pic like that.

Agreed. Also, the AWD would be nice in some respects, but not for what will amount to a ~500lb weight penalty over the F80!
