  2. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    man what are you thinking, 2 million on the mclaren f1?
    the last one sold went for less than 1.3 million US$

  3. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    Come on people, let's be onest! Have u ever driven at 200mph? What good does it do if it can go at that speed? I could never test it, so what good is it for me? It's like a computer which makes 100fps but your eyes can only see 20fps...So why spend 1 mil $ for something i can't use? That's all i have 2 say about that...
     
  4. i rekon the mclaren would win and the stats are wrong it does 380 kph because you can buy the car btu have a look at the world record for the fastest production car and that is mclaren f1 391 kph and the sledgehammer is a 400000 dollar car when you can buy a mclaren f1 2 million which means they are both production cars and the corvette has shitty handeling
     
  5. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    can you back that up please a site that says that because if you dont have anything backing it up your word can mean like a piece of shit to me ulease you back it up with a site. and i am talking bout australian dollars
     
  6. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    ok here it is im only 13 and i always loved mclarens but now i have a new respect for corvettes a 1988 corvette compared to like a 1996 1 million dollar car and my dad has 2 corvettes and they seem to handle great but if i had a choice i would pick neither of these 2 cars i i would chose a new corvette Z06 and get a lingenfelter installed engine package wit 725 horses man
     
  7. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    that is one of the best choice i would have made.

    The mistake that most people make is that you don't have to prove common knowledge.
     
  10. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    what you said is more than right!
     
  11. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    Oh dear, not again. Another person to put right. Road & Track January 2000 issue in the top 100 cars of 100 years. Number 96, the McLaren F1:

    "In our December 1997 road test, we described the McLaren F1 as possibly the ultimate high-performance road car built in the 20th century-barring any last-second suprises. There were none, and it is. With 627 bhp, 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and a reported top speed of 231 mph, the $1.1 million dollar brainchild of Formula 1 designer Gordon Murray bristles with technology."

    I don't have the December 1997 issue or else I would quote that, but look in the back of any Road & Track in the Road Test Summary, and you'll see the pricing and specs. on it:

    "Make and Model - Ameritech Mclaren F1 (called Ameritech for the legalization agency)
    Issue - 12-97
    List Price - $890,000
    Price as Tested - $1,131,120 ($240,000 dollars for mods to legalize in the US, along with a handful of other countries)
    Engine Type - V-12
    Horsepower - 627
    0-60 mph, sec. - 3.4
    1/4 mile, sec. - 11.6
    Top Speed, mph - 231"

    There's the major specs. on it. Also, the Sledgehammer wasn't production, just offered for production, but nobody wanted it.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    damn right, my dad has two vettes two and i like them. paying 1 million for a car that almost the same as this 400000 dollar car is just dumb, well unless you got the money. but this car is just tha shit.
     
  13. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    Too bad this car is ugly as hell, you probably won't have the balls or the ability to control this car up to 254 mph and it handles like a 2x4 compared to a McLaren F1.

    Besides with 400 grand i'd just get a saleen s7, it looks way better, its faster then you'll ever use, and its handling is insane.
     
  14. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    fir u it is ugly for me it is a beauty!

    Yes, I have the video of Andy Wallace making that run, you can find it at http://www.mclarencars.com/content/sections/mainfr/gall.htm. But, I'll also give you something else: http://www.callawaycars.com/Corvette/Sledgehammer/sledgehammer_article.htm. That's the story of the Sledgehammer and its run. Also, I find car magazines more reliable than most websites because of the fact that the mags test the cars themselves and then write about it. If they have false information, there could be big trouble. Now an internet site, you can put whatever you want there because it's not published work. It's only what I find proof of that I care about, like that Andy Wallace run and the Sledgehammer article.<!-- Signature -->

  19. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    this car vs. the mac would be a good battle but if you tuned a mclaren like this vette the mclaren would DESTROY this thing. ohh yeah this cars pretty ugly. id still take it for its performance though.

  21. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

  22. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer
