  1. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    yeah this is one of my all time favorite cars; i'd definitely choose this over the f1
     
  2. most people dont know this cars exist, but they do, and theyre mclaren like stuff!
     
  3. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    Yeah but not quite as noted these are amazing Machines<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    i liked the idea of this car at first but i then looked at the skimatics for it, cant see shit out of the front or back of the car it is like driving with one eye shut, better luck with ur head out the window
     
  5. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    this is definetly one of the best cars ever, i fell in love wit it when it came out in need for speed 2<!-- Signature -->

    Shape it has to weigh 1480kg. It really destroys the 0-60 time.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    All I can say, beautiful car...
     
  8. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    I really agree. I like these just as much if not more than the F1

    I like any car over the F1, Maclaren is just too.... normal. I mean when I say Maclaren F1 everyone knows what it is and stuff, but this car is rare and exotic.
     
  10. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    this car is awesome. I'm a little surprised that it's not faster. I'd like to see a little better acceleration in a car, but besides that, this is going on my top ten favorite cars list now. I agree with 2fast4u, the mclaren is too recognizable, exotic unheard of cars are much cooler. Even Ferraris and Porsches are getter too familiar. Bugattis rock all.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    Sorry guys I can't believe a car with 410 bhp can run 340 km/h.
    Even with a aerodynamicly optimized and lowered chassis like this, the air pressure on the front should get too high at 300 or 310.
    It seems to me that the statistics relate to the engine-version with about 600 bhp. Couldn't that be possible?
     
  12. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    Eh, that Merecedes engine is too damn heavy, and so is the body. Stick to aluminum. This might have been the McLaren's inspiration.<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    that could be true^ For this car is everything a supercar should be it really does look the part, and it goes like a demon... I drove this car in Need For Speed back in the Day. I have deep respect for this car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    400hp and 212 is very possible, Back in 87 the F40 went 201mph with 478hp and 5 speeds and weighed a little more than this. If this car has the right gearing it is definetly possible
     
  15. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    No, the f40 was lighter than this! It was even lighter than the Mclaren!
     
  16. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    400 hp is not the end....
    If you buy this car, it's made only for YOU! you can get it with as much power as you want, up to 850 hp. The Mercedes-Engine is strong enough for much higher torques..

    PS.: sorry, the pics are bad quality, I know...
     
  17. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    just take a look at that body slick low drag and weight this car matched with the right gearing could acheive much more, its an other great example of engeinering and weight vs horsepower. nice car got to admit but theire is no way take this over a mc laren no way....

    hahahaha
    the whole idea seems funny ahhahahhahah

    this ...hahaha...and a mclaren hahahha....

    I really agree.. I mean if you have enough cheese to spend on this, why dont you add a bit more and buy a McLaren.. Better buy the McLaren than this...<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. 212 mph?

    I don't think so. Horsepower to weight ratio is paramount, and this thing as advertised here checks in at 7.997 lb/hp. Let's compare to some well known cars with well documented, reliable performance figures:

    1997 Corvette C5 9.36 lb/hp 172 mph

    1996 911 Turbo 8.73 lb/hp 180 mph

    1997 550 Maranello 7.68 lb/hp 194 mph

    1991 Diablo 7.36 lb/hp 202 mph

    1995 McLaren F1 3.98 lb/hp 241 mph

    Looking at these figures, it would seem that the Isdera would come in somewhere around 185 mph. You can't pass off jumping from 185 to 212 (27 mph) on magical gearing. Magical gearing doesn't exist. Gearing is gearing, and the Isdera doesn't have an advantage over the cars listed above in that respect. If you still insist that magical gearing exists, why don't the cars listed above use it? Oh they do? Then where's the advantage that the Isdera has.......
    Aerodynamics? You can't pass off 27 mph on that either, seeing as once you pass 150 mph, no matter what kind of drag coefficient you've got, the wind resistance is huge and you need horsepower to push the car faster through the air. (as I noted, lb/hp is paramount.)

    In the words of Public Enemy, don't believe the hype!

  22. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    very nice performance for a such horsepower rate!
     
  23. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    Hmm, its got great performance..but its just to bland for a super exotic, in my opinion.
     
  24. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    i agree with you proteinbeast.
     
  25. Re: check this one out! 400bhp and 212 mph!

    It's very impressive. But for me, the Italdesign Nazca M12 concept Is more amazing, since it gets 326 km/h with 300 hp. . .
