I've heard Hennessey is making a package for the WK2, lol

I'd go with a GTR

as far as AWD best bang for the buck besides our rigs are deff GTR's I've been in a few (w/basic bolt on's)...not my cup of tea, if i had to sell i wouldn't go the awd route.. if u still have a CSRT y not go RWD and daily ur other car when it's shitty out?

i would go with a 08-10 viper, new z06, maybe a zr-1 if i had the coin, or a new cts-v coupe... anything with a LSX as you know has an unlimited list of mods you can do to them...

GTR Is probably the best for the price... And AWD.

Anything else that would compare and maybe beat a GTR would be way more money...

Porsche 911 Turbo S, or a GT2...

I've always liked the ZR1, they are incredible, but I would be scared to drive one after getting used to the Jeep...

My brother has a 2009 GTR, he has a few mods in it as well, I've driven it twice, It's fun and the sound is incredible!

Edit: And if you're looking into making it a monster, the GTR is probably the best route... They are not cheap parts wise (18k for carbon brakes!), but I'm pretty sure any other car such as a Lamborghini or a Porsche would cost a lot more money to maintain... GTR Switzer, I really doubt you'd find anything on the streets to beat that.

With all these Turbo kits available for the JEEP now days I would stick with the JEEP and do a NEW BUILD . Heavy means nothing when it comes to get it up and moving , look @ Peter's TTC JEEP , IMO you will roast basically anything on the streets
Now if a little more refined gadgets is what you seek , then go a different direction GTR .

I have a 2013 gt-r and a 2012 jeep srt8. The gt-r is the fastest car I've ever owned. Previously I had a 04 viper and a 2009 cts-v with tune and bolt ons. The cts-v sounded great and was fun to drive. The gt-r is very easy to drive, almost too easy. It's very fast and handles nicely. You can do 70 around a sharp bend and the car wants you to push it more because it takes everything with ease. Honestly, I'm about to sell the gt-r and get something else. Having the fasters car around will only do so much and I rather drive my jeep everyday. Unless your into tracking, I wouldn't get a gt-r. For daily use, I hate it. It sits low to the ground and you feel/hear almost everything, even in comfort mode. For what you want, I would probably get the gt-r. Bang for the buck, it can't be beat.

GT-R in my eyes is not special at all..I see more of those on the road then the Jeep..go with a porsche over GTR..better looking and will be more impressive. Gtr is still a nissian
