All of the cars – including the ZR1 and Viper for our latest story —
were driven by Motor Trend contributor and race car ace Randy Pobst.
some of his comments ....
2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 - We already knew there was something sinister about this
red and black devil when it showed up with 666 miles on the odometer. Despite having fewer
horses than several other contenders, it showed them and the Laguna Seca raceway who is boss.
2010 Ferrari 458 Italia – This wild horse ran like the wind, lapping the raceway in 1:36.2,
and it did it ever so gracefully. “There aren’t any flaws,” we said of the Italian supercar,
in which we took extra laps in just because we could.
2012 Lamborghini Aventador - Just like the raging bull it was named after, the Aventador
stormed the circuit with all its might, but it didn’t come easy, as the wild animal was rather
difficult to tame. Nonetheless, it lapped the circuit in an impressive 1:35.4.
2012 Lexus LFA – Pobst said the LFA’s brakes were some of the most powerful he’d ever
experienced, but had some reservations about the car’s performance: “It’s not a good-time car
in a relaxed, casual way. It’s a good-time car in a serious work way. … And for me, that’s
less enjoyable than something I can just haul ass in.”
