    Wow, I never saw this video before. I'm out of the loop.

     
  2. hmm, never seen this one i think, nice find !


    That first F50 video on the right (1:31) is nice too. You can really see what a huge car that Phantom is, certainly compared with the F50.
     
  3. Hell yeah! And I prefer Koenig's version of the manettino (except its not on the wheel :p) that they have in that F50...
     
  4. thats how it should be <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  5. are you sure it's the Koenig one?
     
  6. that sucked, the guy was short shifting the whole time
     
  7. piston rings=take it in the ass. teh engine is working hard enough, but youre right, if hes making a video then he should rev it high yo VEEETECH.
     
  8. Considering there is black tape on the Ferrari steering wheel logo, which the Koenig usually has (due to some issue that Ferrari has with the turbocharged F50, therefore all the Ferrari badges/emblems are removed or black taped on the Koenig car). There is also a boost gauge in the center dash console and then you can see the recognizable Koenig "Power Screw" two or three times in the video which allows for 600, 700 or 800 HP choice.

    I'd say yes, it is the Koenig Ferrari F50 Turbo, being driven lightly though.

  10. Bavarian country road, German autobahn and there is other such thing as the Koenig
     
  11. how many of these exist?
     
  12. only a hand full
     
  13. wonder if there's any Bolide photos around..

  15. I like it..
     
  16. 8 secs?!? hmmmm hard to believe even with that kind of power...
     
  17. power is nothing without control, grip is the key to better acceleration times
     
  18. i want one of those knobs on my car
     
  19. Thumbs up.
     
  20. I'm pretty sure the answer is 3. Only one of them does the 1/4 in 8 seconds though, it has a higher output than the other two, something in the vicinity of 1000HP the others sit on a modest 9-10 with the 850hp toggle..

    BUT.

    I KNOW there are only three GT1's and I might be getting the figures mixed up. The Koenig cars are quite elusive to get info for.

    Ther's an American aftermarket crowd that put a turbo on an F50 and apparentley ruined it and made it slower - accross the entire rev range.

    dit - looking for the refs I had on the koenig cars - they don't answer emails.
