It had to happen really didn't it?

  1. THEY MADE IT EVEN FASTER!!

    #$%#ing hell...I didn't think it was possible, but it's even faster than ever. they'll probably be able to beat the R500EVO's 0-100-0 time of 10.73secs when it comes to doing it again this year.

    I think it's a good idea that they've chosen not to use the K-series for this uber-incarnation of the ultimate 2-seater sports car, as any more tuning and it would have gone BOOM! (the k-series is a long-stroke engine already revving to well over 8000rpm in the R500EVO, so any more power and it would increase the chances of a catastrophic faliure many times over)

    it's awesome to see these cars get faster and faster. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  2. I just have a feeling now that they use a "new" (for Caterham) engine, that they'll break through that 3-second barrier in 2005.
     
  3. you just wait till the 17,000rpm motorbike engine-derived V8 makes full production....OMG will that be awesome
     
  4. Cool <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> can't wait to keep track of the number of fatalities in that case <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  5. ahah...yeh, i spose ~350bhp in a car not weighing much more than this is a bit deadly
     
  6. Formula 1 power to weight ratio!!!
     
  7. Nice car, really shows some potential of an inline 4, try showing this in a vette forum...... lol jk jk
     
  8. lol...they'd all go on about how the lingenfelter(sp?) will crush it....but completely forget that this car is stupidly fast from stock....no modifications are needed to get this to do 0-100-0 in less than 11 secs (which it will...as it's more powerful, and ligter than the R500EVO which took the record this year with time of 10.73)
     
  9. Lets hope it doesnt need to be rebuilt every 30 hours like the one doing the rounds at the moment.
     
  10. Who really even cares about the 0-60? As impressive as 3.1s is, this car is an autocross monster, I think it would be just as fast on anytrack with speeds under 150mph as any other supercar you could find including the most expensive.
