    Did you see the windshield? It's seperated, looks like they stole it from some kinda plane <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    Yeah, the split winshield is supposed to help a lot aerodynamically.
     
  6. Re: Ugly

  9. Re: yea 'raptor' i'm sure!

    the car was originally better looking it was called the intruder which also got banned from racing at the 24 hours of nelson ledges after winning back to back whith a comfortable margin using a stock corvete engine (30 hp) it only got better when the raptor was made from the same car but with a split windshield the actual 0-60 time was 3.5 seconds and they were indeed disinvited from the one lap of america after taking three overall wins(the most).

    how exactly does a car get banned for being to good?

    Wow! Hideous! But insanely fast! what's your take on it?
     
  16. Re: King of the Ugly:performance ratio

    I dont think it looks that bad. I honestly dont see what you have against it. I would take one. How often can you say that you have a car that was undefeated?<!-- Signature -->

    "supposed to help a lot aerodynamically" My theory is the split windshield causes the air to shed, and miss the rear wing, taking away downforce, and increasing top speed.

    FYI, Sharp leading edges are only aerodynamic at speeds over Mach 1.
     
  19. Re: Ugly

    I would rather be ugly and fast than pritty and last!
     
  20. Re: Ugly

    it may be ugly , but it kicks a 911 GT2...Exeption for the top speed but where except on a race track can you drive at 290+ KM/H ?
     
  21. Re: Ugly

    Ummm... yes it very ugly! not fast but 0-60 in 3.9 is not bad
     
  22. Re: Ugly

    waths with the split front window!?!
     
  23. Re: Ugly

    Yeah, the body looks ugly, but it seems to me that only the cockpit shell looks ugly. The rest of the body is hodge-podge, which means its mismatched, so the car's looks don't exactly blend together. It looks ugly because Mosler wants to have an aerodynamically functional car, or that they want to be the laughing stock.<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: Ugly

    This is, well... a very strange car. The windshield is ugly as hell. But hey, if it dominated in competition, who cares what it looks like? Racing cars aren't made to be pretty.<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Re: King of the Ugly:performance ratio

    I've seen this car and it is UGLY!! Especially sitting next to the MT900. It was built in 93' and was fast for the time. Considering that the engine the times aren't bad.
