Carrera GT. The MC12 being wider and longer you would think is more stable, but i think i'd rather something a bit more nimble which is what the CGT is.

Sadly I've heard it's only available in the colour you see there - still looks great though!

I would like to get a CGT, MC12 is to wide and long... it looks ugly IMHO.



3 or 4 of 50 MC12 are in other colours. Here are 3 of them:

I'd go for the MC12. Love the design and the white with blue stripes thing. VERY good comparison btw

CGT, easily. It has a real manual for one thing, and it'd be much nicer to live with. MC12'd be too hard to drive everyday, but I'd take the CGT to work... if it was parked in a secure carpark.
