    About that zl1 drag video... You might as well show formula one cars dragging and include that in the top speed and 0-60. Did you see the size of the slicks on that thing...? Rediculous.

    Oh, WRXs don't handle well? I guess all those instructors at Skip Barber racing school this summer must not know about handling cause I distinctly remember them saying, "Thats a fun car, great handler" after we went around the room and one kid said he had a WRX. But then again, I should trust you not Skip Barber instructors, they don't know shit.

    actually the fastest PROVEN (one that has actually done it) car is the jaguar xj220 with a turbocharged V6(first had a v12 but power to weight ratio wasn't very good) the original person to post i agree the ss is the best in a way because they can run with cars that cost twice as much. STOP COMPARING APPLES TO ORANGES. those supras and skylines are turbo. Name one other car that can beat cars twice the price, cost less than 30,000 has qaurter mile of 13 (varies), and is naturally aspirated. These comparisons you guys do are like a cavalier vs. a lambo or ferrari.

    no. the XJ220 WAS the fastest at 218 [i think it was 218], but beaten quite a long while ago by the McF1 at 241.3.

    I am a tad surprised by the cars in this list, not that I hate this car, but there is a severe absence of kit cars- namely the radical and gillet which have world record road acceleration

    "Is it really? The Blitz skyline has more bhp, and is slower 0-60. America dominates the world of speed. Like it and live with it. "


    Heh it seems america dominates in every aspect? Yeah Id agree this car is blistering fast. Dont bring your foreign shit on our land you will get smoked.
     
  8. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    the car that went 240 wasnt a production model, so technically its still the XJ220

    dont se any yanks getting the production car top speed record now do we?
     
  9. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    the one that went 240 was a production model. doing research helps.
     
  10. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    OK. This car is a bad ass, and at the same time I'm not dissing the skyline, supra, RX-7, WRX, or whatever. One thing you have to understand. The imports I have named above are tampered with bfore they come over to the states. The twin turbo cars can beat Z28s or Trans Ams, and mustangs. I've seen it. But, at the same time if you were to turbo a camaro, mustang, or trans am. It would be a good race between a twin turbo car. Now with this car, you are comparing it to the blitz skyline. It's not even in the U.S. of course it's gonna be faster. Why you ask? Because there are different laws and junk out there then there are here in the U.S. I have friend that lives in japan and works for Nissan he knows whats done and has passed the info on to me. Now before you start calling me a moron, and I'm a stupid american, or I have no idea what I'm talking about Think about it the cars out here have more hp then the imports do when they are imported, even though they are turboed and stuff. Oh, and BTW this car has been produced. There is one here In the state of colorado.

    Why would you want an american muscle car not to be loud. Muscle cars are suppose to be pure horsepower and then people want to come along and say they dont like it because its loud? whats wrong with them. The camaro LZ1 is nothing short of an american car lover's dream car.
     
  12. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have wo

    Indeed
    This is a awesome car, I don't get why supercars doesn't have the 1.9 Second Boss Mustang on this list and yet they have this car that it went agianst in Car and Driver. Don't say it's cuase it's not production becuase both the Boss and this car are one-off concept cars, supercars just needs to get their crap together.
     
  13. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have wo

    on the 0-60 list? this site is prety gliched up, so it could be a number of things, but it is on the site.
     
  14. Re:

    I think its funny that when toyota came into IRL they whooped chevy so bad (took the top 18 spots at the first race) that chevy went to COSWORTH, a FORD subsidiary, to design them a new engine.
     
  15. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    Preach on brother, The Boss mustang is boss....HELL YEAH
     
  16. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    loud cars are cool. unless they sound like a bumblebee.
     
  17. Build It?

    This car is by far the best car to own, however you need some deep ass pockets to buy it. My auto shop teacher told me he price to build the components and simalar body at around $100,000. But I have made it a goal in life to own one of these titans of power.
     
  18. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    Well well...I'm glad we got to the real topic of discussion.

    Just a few words. First off, the louder the better. I love to turn the sterio off and just listen to my car<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Gotta love it! Second thing, If I'm racing you, you're losing. I've beat more hot assed guys than I can count and it's mostly b/c they don't know how to drive their car, the other part of it is that their car in NO WAY can compair to mine. Don't let long hair and big brown eyes fool you. I know what I'm doing! Oh and for those talking about Audi and BMW, smoked...BADLY! I only bow to better cars, and off the line, there aren't many. I bow to older muscles and that's really about it.
     
  19. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    Do you want to know why the Blitz Skyline is slower. Its becos it generates to much grip and bogs of the line. There was another skyline over here with more power that they were complaining about it bogging on the line becos of 2 much grip from the AWD. They are less likely to bog of the line. Y do u think most dragsters are RWD. WIth standard tires and standard trim and the same power and weight the AWD will win.
     
  20. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    more grip should get it of the line quicker, u shouldn't have to worry about wheel spin
     
  21. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    Ever heard of this place called germany?
     
  22. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    this just rules all: 1997-2004 Corvette Twin Turbo LS1, ZO6
    427 CID 725 BHP / 650 lbs-ft of torque

    0-60 MPH 3.2 seconds with street tires
    1/4 mile 9.50 @ 145 MPH with street tires
    top speed 230+

    that's the package from lingenfelter, and on a corvette, that'd be the best car.

    by the way, if you want a real fast american car, look at the Chrysler ME Four-Twelve.
     
  23. Re: If I see one more flame on this car, we're gonna have words!

    Lets not drag the Vette into this. A Corvette is the American sports car, but it is technically speaking not a muscle car. The Vette is not designed for straight line speed alone, it has incorporated the technology to dominate on the tracks since the day back in the late 50s when Chevy decided that 'boulevard cruiser' was not the image they wanted for their car.
    Independent Rear Suspension, my friends, makes the difference between a drag car and a track car. IRS distributes cornering force much more effectively by keeping the wheels square to the road and by avoiding lifting the inside wheel during a turn. However, live axles (ie, muscle cars) are 4 times as effective in transferring power to the ground under strict acceleration.
    Personally, I wouldn't want to 'swing into a corner sideways' since a)you scrub your tires and over time that means less durability on the track in an actual race and b) you're slower, trust me. The Vette could more than take the turn (especially a 700 hp one), they've been doing so for 40 out of their 50 years (and 7 of those first 10 were no slouches in their time). And perhaps you think a Vette will spin out because you can't drive well enough to handle a RWD vehicle through a corner. I pity you.
    If you don't believe me, look at the ALMS racing circuit. Oh yeah, Vette's dominate that. Look further back at Showroom Stock SCCA racing in the late 80s. Vettes were banned because all the teams driving Japanese and European cars cried because they couldn't keep up with the Vette and its 5 link IRS and ABS brakes. Look further back at the major racing circuits in the 70s and 60s, you will find Vettes in all those places.
    As for more grip than an Evo, your dream car pulls less than 1g, a mark Corvettes have seen since 97 and have been very close to for almost 20 years. A simple switch of sway bars will bring most any Vette past that mark.

    Bottom line: Know what you are talking about before you post stupid stuff.
