mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

Discussion in '1988 Callaway Sledgehammer Corvette' started by heheheheheheheh, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. 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

    man what are you thinking, 2 million on the mclaren f1?

    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
     
  6. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    The mistake that most people make is that you don't have to prove common knowledge.

    what you said is more than right!

    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 -->

    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.
     
  12. 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.
     
  13. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    fir u it is ugly for me it is a beauty!
     
  14. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    for u it is ugly but for me it is a beauty
     
  15. Re: mclaren f1 vs corvette sledgehammer

    Mclaren is overpriced eurotrash, get over it the chevy is faster, and doesn't look like something my little brother drew like the Mclaren
