    I wish. I read that one of the head guys of the F-Body announced just a couple weeks ago that they would not return.

    Forget your ferrari's and your XJ220's I'd rather have an Orca113



    Never heard of it, didn't think so Did I mention 0-60MPH in 2.7secs

    It's brand new in Europe, production just began (well starts in April). They won't let us Americans have anything that will do 258 mph!

    and regarding the orca... it's funny. i've seen a report on the car and the guy behind the car a while back on tv. that is a one man show. this guy is an engineer and he was bored with the cars around - and couldn't quite afford a real sports car - so he started designing his own. that's basically why it is a kit car of sorts - since he wouldn't be able to design a whole engine and chassis all of its own. so he picked existing parts for that and had the modified.
    nevertheless a pretty hot piece of wheels.

    btw has anyone ever mentioned the pagani zonder around this thread?

    as far as i know it's the current holder of the track record on the nurburgring (long track) for production racers.





    engine: 7.3 l - 12 cyl mercedes m120 engine, turbocharged to 555 ps @5900 rpm - 750 nm @4050 rpm
    body: 1250 kg - 2.25 kg / ps
    perf: 0-60 mph (0-100 kmh) 3.7s - max ~220 mph (354 kmh)

    cost: 325 grand

    oops... just noticed there's another koenigsegg out that almost looks the same as what we posted. so here's the data of the "slightly" more powerful koenigsegg ccr (fasten your seatbelts):

    engine: 4.7 l - 8 cyl - turbocharged to 806 ps @6900 rpm - 920 nm @5700 rpm
    body: 1180 kg - 1.46 kg / ps
    perf: 0-60 mph (0-100 kmh) 3.2s - max ~242 mph (395 kmh), quartermile in 9 sec @146 mph (235 kmh)

    cost: mucho. like a wise man once said. if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it

    here's a direct comparison of those two (cc8s & ccr)

    just wanted to order one, but their page said
    "This part of the website is still under construction but will be available shortly." too damn bad, spared me 500 gs

    Man that's sweet! They made the improvements where they count too.
    I'm going to get the rear camera option. Seriously, if you have ever sat in a car of similar design, there is hardly any rear view at all as far as backing up is concerned. You are better off opening the door and leaning out to see where you are going.

    yeeez one for the archives great stuff.. but then again this is probably a tailormade car just for drag racing while the ccr is a "production" car meant to do it any time, without liquid glue on the track to launch...

    anyway that clip owns. what i would give for sitting on a drive like that just once... - after all speed is fine, but i never really cared too much about it. acceleration is what counts.... aaaah LOVE IT!

    Yeah I can just imagine what a launch like that would feel like...maybe a rocket taking off....

    the ghostrider busa had 499 hp
    I got the first dvd,...... really insane stuff
    Start to think:
    You are on the way home with ~50mph and this guy is blasting away of you with 300km/h on just the rearwheel..
    Very insane Stuff
    I once been passenger on a hayabusa(stock) the max. we were driven was 240 Km/h, it was enough too

    Being a passenger would scare the hell out of me because you have no control at all. I don't think I know anyone I would trust that much.

    A camera? Pfft, what a sissy way out, just lean out of the door, its way more fun that way.
    They are making it WAY too easy to live with these cars, if you have 500K to drop on a car then it should at least have difficulties, otherwise we cant just hide behind the "its not practical" argument for our poor wallets.

    so true
    yea all these new supersportscars are too easy on the driver.. asr, abs, esp, powersteering (there's only one true way of power steering, know what i mean )..

    ok here's another one of the new breed, made in the uk - farboud gts

    #1


    #2


    #3


    hm this last one.. maybe someone soiled himself?
    this text here says they had an audi engine tuned to 580ps but thought to downtune it to a "moderate" 400ps .. pffff
    - oh and that text is also where the pics originate from.. lots of other nice cars listed there aswell.. lotus exige2, mb slr the >new< ford gt40 (back to the roots!), ...

    oh the color-selector at farboud is fun.. midnight blue or storm silver is the way

    Hey, there's nothing wrong with progress. I remember when the Corvette used to ride like a bucket of bolts brand new and you wouldn't dream of driving it in the winter. The new ones ride like a dream in all kinds of weather.
    There's no way I would ever get used to shifting with my left hand! I do like the interior style and use of machined metal look.
    Much to my surprise Lime Green looks great on this car, a color I would usually not even consider!

    It looks to me like it has the front of the 360 modena, but the cabin is more in the style of the lambo gallardo or murcielago.
