    i agree with joushatree
     
  2. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Its one of my favorite cars, however I prefer the Mosler over the S7. I still can't wait till they finally release the twin turbo Mosler, word is once thats released it will be replacing the Mclaren as the fastest street legal car.

    I could'nt have said it better.
     
  4. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    New june edition of road & track features it. 0-60 in 3.30! 1/4 mile in 11.7,. The Closest American cars are the Viper Venom 800, and the many Corvette based exotics.
     
  5. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    how the f*ck did u guess that???

    i'm not surprised that its cranking that much power while having a V8. the displacement of this car tells the story.
     
  6. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    No I think the person was bewildred not me dude...
     
  7. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    anyway just out of curiosity, in ur signature u say one of ur favourite supercars is the Porsche 911 GT2/ 911 Turbo, well i was wondering why didn't the 911 GT1 make the list? after all, it is the ultimate 911
     
  8. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    wtf? do you need to be killed for saying that? your view is too narrow...aside of all the different viper/vette models that have outstanding performance, especially for their price(as stated many times over), what about the Mosler Photon, or the Corvette C5R...which i mind you, practically swept le mans in 2001, 2002(as told my Motor Trend). Next time think before you shoot off your big ignorant mouth dipshit...
     
  9. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Thats a very good question! The GT1 didn't make it on my list due to the fact that most models I stated are from the year 2000 and up but if it was all my favorite supercars I'd definately have that and the McLaren F1 up there as well
     
  10. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    that explains it

    For the most part, I agree with CarreraGTmaster, or whatever your name is. With the cars to own list, I'm not as big on porsche, but still a fan, but of course I have to add anything by Lotec on that list, and maybe just for fun so as not to show off, and escalade, maybe the ford tonka concept also.
    I'm kinda glad that Fastlane was taken off air, after even that few episodes, it had already lost its touch. It was turning into basically a melrose place, but for straight guys. Plus, I condemn to h*ll anyone who mistreats a ford GT40 like that.
     
  13. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    The New GT40 COULD dethrne it, but this is the best (exotic) sports cars from America.

    Makes me wanna trade in my NSX...
     
  14. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    The Corvette? Hell no did it ever have the title. It wasent until 2003 they could go 0-60 faster than 4.7 seconds. Shoot now there at 3.9 which is nice but there are better American 2003's And can you name a car for under 300,000 + price for Vette that will beat a Vette by more than a second on 0-60

    Hard to find a car that will go 0-60 in 2.9 seconds for under that price.

    Really thought... the Vette? I've seen Mustangs STOCK that will go faster than a 03 Z06.
     
  15. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Lingenfelter, and i feel you the Lingenfelter is a sweet car
     
  16. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Id say it possilby is. 0-60 in 3.3 seconds. Sure the 0-60 isnt as fast as the McLaren but the 0-100 and 1/4 mile are way faster, not to mention this car will handle better. This is quite possilby the best American car ever made. Its a great car.

    "Really thought... the Vette? I've seen Mustangs STOCK that will go faster than a 03 Z06."

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    In what fairy tale land will a Z06 lose to a mustang? Maybe if the Vette lit em up at the line, then ok
     
  18. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    I'd say so...
     
  19. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    one weakness of the s7, probably the only weakness, is that it does not come with antilock brakes. it would be probably better if it had them.
     
  20. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Where did you get that the S7 is faster than the F1 on the 1/4 mile? Way faster? Mclaren has been timed at 11 flat. 0-100 F1 it is close but the F1 doesnt have a flat spot thats the difference between BMW V12 power and American V8 power.

    I agree its a great car too. Would be hard to find another American car that could beat it.
     
  21. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    This car is too much like the McLaren, but i guess for its cost, id prefer this car.
     
  22. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    I didnŽt knew it was American untill now, thought it was from Asia, Japan or something like that. But now i know, awsome design!
     
  23. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Yes, this is the fastest American Made car EVER, it is very nice looking, and the specs are great, anyone that would take any chevy over this is an idiot..this is all stock in the specs, you can add to this and get it close to taking out the F1, but if you seriously would take a chevy over this great looking car you need your head examined. S7 coop with FORD INC
     
  24. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Yeah, its one of the best to come out of American. Too bad its not going to be as popular as when the viper came out. Its got a very nice exotic look to it, and exotic price too <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    But the GT-40 is still the best American car hands down

    GT-40, Viper, Corvette, Mustang and Camaro are the best cars to come out of America. Sorry if I forgot a few as America produced some of the best cars back in the day.
