  1. for #$%#'s sakes...
    can anybody tell me what on earth is this car doing here?
    frigging 4-speed auto...
    it's a frigging hairdressor's car just like Celica....
    or should I say chick's car...<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    Yeah and I reckon that 0-60 figure is wrong, coz I test drove one of the Mivec GPX's (though it might have been rarked to shit) and it seemed slower than my brothers old Honda Integra VTiS... which supposedly does 0-60 in about 7.4 seconds or something....
    ps - also these come in 5spd and tip-tronic...
     
  3. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    I guess the only reason this car's on here is because it looks nice. But, you know, in japan they probably have this car running 9's or something weird like that. But damn, it does look nice.
     
  4. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    Well I don't think this car can make 60 in 6.3 seconds and I certainly know for sure that a manual tranny is offered, but you're right, the Japanese people back home have amazing versions of this along with many other cars that we deem here in the US as shitty.
     
  5. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    I dunno, i think maybe it could get close 6.3 seconds. I mean, it's got almost the same stats as an eclipse gst. They're about the same weight, about the same amount of hp, the fto has less torque but revs higher though. Maybe if they power brake and manual shift the auto, they could get it in that range. Or maybe most of the torque on that v6 is available at low rpms. oh well, it still looks cool.
     
  6. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    the other versions are better, and don't have a non-working rear wing.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    A very rare FTO LM race car(pic below) does exist though, used in touring car races in japan. I'm not sure about the specs but what I heard is that it has a max output of 933ps, with an RPM redline of 9000 rpm.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    I think this is a decent japanese car.

  10. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    What do you think of the GM 454
     
  11. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    this a chicks cars. old celicas r good. new celicas crap with ugly try hard european styling
     
  12. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    873 hp 925 lb/ft. 19k's in mods. The engine that allows that, is the 454 (LS6), made by the geniuses at GM. The japs aint got nothin on that.
     
  13. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    is the ls6 a v6? v6s r gay. should make inline or boxer
     
  14. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    v6's are dumb, I strongly disagree.
     
  15. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    it's faster than the Focus, and apparently that's a supercar.
     
  16. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    i accept ur opinion, that is all.

    Heh, the turbo FTO has over 500bhp, its more than a match for 90% of the cars on this site.

    Really.I can tell you for a fact. It does that time 0 to 60.I have a manual and let me tell you the seocnd gear is crazy. I think all should have come with lsd.Guess i have to buy one.
     
  19. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    there is a 4speed auto, i have seen one at a dealership here in canberra, there is also a 5spd manual and 5spd tiptronic

    this is a nice car but please dont compare this to a skyline, it has nothing on an s15 silvia for god sakes, and there is still the 300zx to go through before comparing it to a skyline gt-r

    though i would take this over a skyline gts (non-turbo)
     
  20. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    I totally agree. If you're going to even start trying to compare this FTO piece to a skyline gt-r vspecII that you're going to have to go through a lot of other cars first. Even a lot of domestics could beat this piece to a pulp, so dont even try to mess with the Skyline.
     
  21. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    I think you are missing the point. You can buy one for under $10,000
     
  22. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    thank you
     
  23. Re: pls...FTO is a supercar?

    Give this car some slack! Its a great looking car and its good value for money, the ones giving shit to it are probably jealous!
