The Pontiac Firebird is the winner for me by a mile, when I was younger I was actually looking to try and buy one of these beautys for myself. However, when I saw the price of insurance I had to take a step back and realise that it was never going to happen.. :( These are both very good cars, but..
Which one would you choose?
Right lets get started:
Average insurance for middle-age man, safe neighbourhood: $600 month
The amazing Pontiac Firebird must represent the best value for money useable performance car there has ever been! For the equivalent of just £14,000 in the USA, a brand new Firebird could be yours with leather, electric seats, ABS and traction control - not to mention the small matter of a 300bhp V8.
Average insurance for middle-age man, safe neighbourhood: $650/month
The follow up to the Ecosse, the beautifully styled KZ-1 was first introduced at the 2000 Birmingham Motor Show. A 500bhp powerplant pushes the KZ1 to a 200mph top speed with 0-60mph acceleration in around 4 seconds. Handling is high quality thanks in part to the lightweight carbon fibre body but mostly due to the chassis expertise of Ascari's designers having previously honed their skills at Lotus.
