Oooops I'm sorry i read it wrong :(

So a guy who owns a food business has a faster car than an NFL star's car? Makes total sense
Description: Bruce Wayne's ride of choice in the latest Dark Knight movie can jump off the line to 60 mph in a blistering 2.9 seconds, run the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 133mph and on to a top-speed of 2...

Why the video btw? Is hennessey gonna turn the civilised sls into an aventador beater monster?
Christian De Prisco Aug 13, 2012
@darrellbell Which the car in the video doesn't have because it's a roadster.
Dillon Magee Aug 13, 2012
The vette is fast, but it would have no chance against a car w/ AWD and more power.
Sam Hansen Aug 13, 2012
It's comical how much Corvettes get brought up on these CarBuzz comment sections. Just because GM may claim that they're "world beaters" doesn't mean they really are...

Why are you even talking about the zr1 in here they are talking about luxury exotic European sports cars. The zr1 is neither luxury, exotic or European
Byakka Hirakawa Aug 12, 2012
Wat was the point of this race? I mean i love the sls, but for it to stane a chance it would have to be 10 feet from the mile mark, lol
Bruno Nappa Aug 12, 2012
Why wasn't he using the paddles. It would have been alot closer. But the lambo definitely still would win.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Aug 12, 2012
I would get the underground racing twin turbo italia spyder over the aventador because its lighter more nimble and faster for pretty similar price
Wyatt Gordon Aug 12, 2012
I'd rather have a Ferrari 458 Italia coupe and about $100,000 left over for mods than the Venty
Brian Johnston Aug 12, 2012
Zr1 are you serious? Do you know anything about cars?
Jackson Rojas Aug 12, 2012
the guy in the sls was not using the launch control or the dual clutch transmission
David Pires-Ihsaan Aug 12, 2012
The zr1 might lose due to the 4wd and the 70hp the aventador has on it.
Barry Boo Wilson Aug 12, 2012
Colby the ZR1 would get burnt. On another note how about the DA keep both hands on the wheel going 170 LOL
John Serely Aug 12, 2012
Same here, Douglas
Jose Miguel Fernandez Aug 12, 2012
I don't think you can really vim pare these 2 cars especially because of the price one is like $200,000 more expensive
Douglas Goncalves Aug 12, 2012
There's no denying the Aventador. However, if I had the SLS I'd still be like a kid in a candy store!
Colby Church Aug 12, 2012
I want to see the ZR1 against the Aventador in the mile. I think the Lamborghini would pull off the line quicker and stay ahead for about 7 seconds, then I think the ZR1 would take it.
Description: The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster takes its motivation in the form of a 6.2-liter V8 with 571 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, hitting 60 in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 197mph. It doesn't seem lik...

haven't watched the video yet, but I'll bet the Lamborghini hits 165+/- in the mile, guaranteed the Venom would break 200 in the same stretch, so just because 0-60 times are close doesn't mean its gonna be a close race
Pablo Herasme Aug 12, 2012
Now Carbuzz is trying to be DragtimesInfo with the obvious outcomes
David Pires-Ihsaan Aug 12, 2012
Lol. Guys... Faster launch coupled with 500 MORE HORSEPOWER. Not really a contest at all...
John Jenkins Aug 12, 2012
not really, it's a closer race than this 2.5:2.9 to 2.9:3.7. venom vs aventador is only off by .4 while aventador vs sls is .8. come on fanboys
Barry Boo Wilson Aug 12, 2012
Huh wtf the venom has way more power and less weight. That would be a worse match up than these two.
Thibault Leroy Aug 12, 2012
The venom would win but not by much
Colby Church Aug 12, 2012
Lol, the Venom would literally annihilate the Aventador. That wouldn't be fair at all.
John Serely Aug 13, 2012
@thinault I think the first gen gallardo and both murcielagos look good in yellow, but not too many others lol
Wyatt Gordon Aug 12, 2012
Matte colors look good, but not matte black. matte black makes me think "you're supposed to put the underseal on the bottom"
Brian Johnston Aug 12, 2012
Yellow is disgusting on cars.
Carlton Salmon Aug 12, 2012
No, pink or lilac or any similar shade is IMO.
Theviper007 Aug 12, 2012
Orange looks good on it
Thibault Leroy Aug 12, 2012
Yellow has got to be the ugliest color on a supercar
Colby Church Aug 12, 2012
Shoulda got yellow...

IQ is measured by your ability to solve problems.
Timothy Hooker Aug 12, 2012
I always like how people who own fit businesses are never fit
Matthew Crighton Aug 12, 2012
Oscar, your IQ is actually measured using your memory. Get your facts right.
David Pires-Ihsaan Aug 12, 2012
Collies are smarter than retrievers...
Oscar Galvan Aug 12, 2012
Memory and iq are different thing. And some yes some no. It's just because of all the physical contact but it's just a rumor
