  1. Design your own car.

    We haven't done this for a while. Please use current technology.

    midengine 2 seat coupe
    46" tall
    73" wide
    169" long
    110" wheelbase
    normally aspirated V6 in front of the transaxle
    dry sump oiling
    DCT inside the wheelbase
    245/40 & 275/40
    18x8.5 & 19x10
    carbon ceramic brakes
    roll bar
    centrally located fuel bladder
    48/52 weight distribution F/R
  2. Design your own car.

    VW body/chassis. Porsche suspension components. Silicon carbide brakes. Subaru Impreza WRX flat four engine. Porsche tiptronic transaxle. Then send it to Lotus to calibrate and tune the thing.

    Different dream car.
    DeLorean chassis. Bugatti EB110 engine. Veyron transaxle. A Delorean that really would be capable of time travel.

    Design your own car.

    I'd put the AER P32 V8 TT engine into this car:

    The engine only weighs 114kg, but makes 1000+hp (without air restrictors).
    This will reduce the car's weight to somewhere in the region of low 700kgs.
    The engine is an LMP1 engine, made to run at full blast for 24 hours.

    CONFIGURATION All Alloy 75� V8
    CAPACITY 3.6 Litres
    OVERALL LENGTH 510.65 mm (20 inches)
    OVERALL WIDTH 605.7 mm (24 inches)
    OVERALL HEIGHT (INCLUDING PLENUM) 588.2 mm(23 inches)
    MAXIMUM RPM 12,000 (approx.)
    HORSEPOWER (UNRESTRICTED) 1,000 (approx.)

    A pontiac fiero with a twin turbo LT1 small block chevy and a 4th gen camaro dash swap.

    A beetle with a subaru flat 4.

    A Datsun 240Z with either a skyline floor pan so that it can be converted to AWD and an RB26dett, or a turbocharged LS2.

  14. Design your own car.

    Did Mariah Carey actually say that?
  15. Design your own car.

    No, that's an urban legend made up by a comedy periodical.
  16. Design your own car.

    yes, it was in some magazine interview I think
    I remember seeing the magazine interview....
    That answer could have been made up I guess, but none of the other answers to other questions seemed stupid or not serious
  17. Design your own car.
  18. Design your own car.

    No lambo with scissor doors is avalable with 4 seats, you fail
  19. Design your own car.

    Aerodynamic and rolling resistance is much higher at Vmax, therefore more power is lost to overcoming the loads on the car.
  20. Design your own car.

    In both cases, the throttle is wide open, therefore, you'd be using the same amount of fuel in the same amount of time, but you'd be traveling a greater distance in the higher gear than you would in 1st gear.
  21. Design your own car.

    A 2 seater, fornt egnine, rwd, a Hgh reving DOHC 4.0 Turbo V8, full race suspension, 6 speed manual.

  25. Design your own car.

    Or, a car with a design inspired by jet fighters and the Group C's Sauber-Mercedes C11, a 7.3 liter mid-mounted AMG engine developing more than 600HP, two tone exterior, an interior that would make Hugh Heffner proud and 4 exhaust tips on the back, in the middle, protruding out of a circle that's erotic as a woman's asshole. I got the name: Paganini.
