If you're a gearhead with money burning a hole in your pocket and you're looking for a toy, you've got a lot of options if you're open minded. Sure you could go find a completely mint E46 BMW M3 or Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, but why settle when you can get something a bit more moving.

In this clip, Auto Express decided to put two icons on the drag strip: the Ferrari 328 GTS and Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 4S.

While the Ferrari is MUCH older, you cannot deny that the Italians know how to build a vehicle that will make your heart pump pure lust. The Porsche, which is MUCH newer, is the kind of car that you buy and have some confidence it will take many more years of heavy use. And, because the 996 is the red-headed stepchild of 911s, we're betting you can find a really nice one in great shape and have room for modifications — I just found a local 2004 C4S for $40,000 with 20k on the odo.

So, WHICH would YOU rather have? The Italian or the German?

Listen to the roar as these incredible machines face off on the drag strip!
