while for the most part I agree such lists are silly...

dumb list. everything else but the GTR are making mid 300s at most, stock.
Yeah... I'm sure that Audi R18 LeMans car and the Jag XJ220 are making mid-300s
Let alone that the list isn't strictly about power. In many cases its about landmarks in V6 development.

+1; there's a lot more than HP that gives a car relevance in a list of important V6's.

Very cool.

But I think it's funny that are using a modified engine picture.

I disagree... especially on the Mustang call. The fact is the current V6s in these cars put out more power than most of the V8s that made the same cars famous back in the day and do so while consuming less gas. That is quite an accomplishment. There are definitely other V6s which are better and I think most made the list, but I have no issue with US automakers finally getting around to making some decent power with a V6 and being recognized for it.

sorry, overgeneralization, but twenty five? that's a lot of mediocrity packed along with machines that actually deserve a mention.

Correct me if I'm wrong but, isn't the GT-R a SIX-speed rear mounted double clutch transmission, not a SEVEN-speed automatic?
