Hey Hole in the ground,
I do agree with 90% of your review and couldn't agree more regarding the lack of knowledge that's in several of the reviews I've read so far. I was once a proud owner the SLR. It's truly a head turner when out on the town or taking a Sunday drive down your favorite winding "runway".
One the other hand, for the amount of money I paid for the SLR along with it's origin and historical background I expected much more from the car performance wise. I've taken both the SLR and the 2010 Corvette ZR1 around the formula one track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on more than 1 occasion and the ZR1 has outperformed the SLR every time and in every performance category. As far as the noise level it was a toss up. With the exhaust pipes location being out the sides behind the front wheel wells it felt as if they were directly beneath your feet creating a serious rumble beneath you. The ZR1 was loud as well especially when you put it to the floor.
I call it the noise level a draw.
The interiors were no comparison with that of the SLR being much nicer and luxurious than the ZR1, but as nice as it is it doesn't give you the "fighter pilot" feel the ZR1 does especially on the track. Overall for the money or how much "male" compensation your looking for, I would take the ZR1 everyday of the week over the SLR and keep $300k in my pocket.
I must admit there's not a supercar on the market today that you can put in the garage that will draw the amount of attention like the the SLR does when cruising downtown on a nice summer day. Everybody wants to gets a look.
