Is it just me, or anyone else think that a sub 3 sec 0-60 time for a car is a bit stupid?
Just go to you tube, and look at all the supercars crashing within seconds of starting with people thinking they are Lewis Hamilton behind the wheel.
A chap round the corner to me had a Nissan 370z, and then bought the Nizmo version, or what ever its called, with the auto box, crashed it the first day, his passenger survived without life threating injuries, he wasn't so lucky. Auto boxes are the cause of a significant number of accidents in the uk, why, perhaps the driver is looking for the clutch in a moment of panic. Whatever reason, if all these high performance cars are going this way, a lapse of concentration, for just one sec, can result in life or death.
Call me an old fart, or does anyone else agree?

Manual gearboxs are more superior as you have total control, auto boxes you are very limited, fast acceleration in a straight line, and that's it, no control in the corners,at least with a manual box you can keep the engine on cam and power through corners better and maybe some drifting as well, just need an uprated clutch.
