    People in my school are making a big deal out of the new Orca C113, . The prototypes of the car has a 2.3 Liter, 375 horsepower engines, but the production version will have a 4.2 liter V8 Audi engine that makes 641 horsepower and the overall weight of the car is below 2000 pounds. The car will have a 9-speed transmission and can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds. The top speed is estimated at 258 mph. My class mates kept saying the Orca C113 will DESTROY the Bugatti Veyron. In my opinion, what they are saying is IMPOSSIBLE, for three reasons:

    Reason #1: The Veyron will definitely surpass the the C113 in luxury, build quality, reliability and safety. Even if the C113 was somehow able to surpass Veyron in performance, the Veyron will still be called the king, because performance isn't everything. Comfort, drivability and reliability are also big issues for a road car, which explains why it was the Mclaren F1, not the Dauer 962 LeMans, that was being called the ultimate road car.

    Reason #2: The Veyron has the legendary Bugatti name, which makes it 10 times more desirable for car enthusiasts.

    Reason #3: The Veryon is about 5000 times better looking than the Orca C113.

    So the bottom line is: Bugatti Veyron is still the King!!!!

    REMEMBER, THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION, YOU GUYS MIGHT THINK DIFFERENTLY.

    To check out a Orca C 113, go to the website below:

    The only reason that the Orca C113 is so fast is that 9 speed transmition. At high Speed, it will lack the power to really get going I say. 2.7seconds to 100kph is possible with 641hp, but i don't think 2.7 seconds to 100kph, constant wicked acceleration, and a top speed of 258mph is possible.

    I don't think it looks too bad, but Bugatti all the way.

    Another thing. An Audi 4.2L V8. 641hp??? No turbo, Supercharging, etc?

    I thought it was 7 gears like the Bugatti, It's a hell of alot lighter but I don't think it looks nearly as good as most supercars.
     
  4. Re: Bugatti Veyron vs. Orca C113

    ok then, if it's 7-speed, not a chance. Bugatti lives on
     
  5. Re: Bugatti Veyron vs. Orca C113

    I didn't read the entire article so I'm not sure, but most likely the production 4.2L engine is going be either turbocharged or supercharged.

    The Orca might catch on, it is in GT4 after all which is good for publicity.
     
  7. Re: Bugatti Veyron vs. Orca C113

    I really only see this Orca as another Dauer 962...
     
  8. Re: Bugatti Veyron vs. Orca C113

    yeah, but without 962's rich racing heritage
     
  9. Re: Bugatti Veyron vs. Orca C113

    And without the Dauer's looks. Sorry, but the Orca is pretty ugly IMO.
     
  10. Re: Bugatti Veyron vs. Orca C113

    yes, but better than boy racer cars
     
  11. Re: Bugatti Veyron vs. Orca C113

    im a little confused. does it really say that this was built in someones garage???? i seriously dont believe that a car built in a garage is going to beat out supercars made by the best engineers in the world using the most advanced engineering techniques in the world. i really think i missed something, so please tell me what i missed <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    A car built in someones garge is made how they want it, when Ferrari build a new car, they consider cost, target buyers and what it needs tio benefit Ferrari itself not the car so there is always compromise on a road car, even the Enzo. If I wanted to build a supercar and I had the cash and knowledge I could make a car as quick as the Enzo.

    Umm just to make point here. The Vector Avtech was built in a home Garage, the first prototype of the Koenigsegg cc-8 was built in a home Garage. Thes are both two of the worlds best performance cars, so where they are built really doesnt matter. Where do you think Lingenfelter and Hennessey first started or even Salleen and shelby. They all started in Garages as hobbies and blew up into huge companies that built some of the fastest and elite cars on the planet. It does seem strange that someone is building supercars in their home but it does happen. I automatically think of a little crap-box kit car with a ford this and a chevy that slapped onto a dodge this in a mercedes that. But the truth is many things start where youd least expect it.
