  1. shouldn't that V12 get more HP??

    this is one of the slickest designs but tha engine should do more

  2. It's a less than 4 second car..... #$%# horse power... u can tune it to more horse power<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. The car has been from Italdesign but the engine from BMW Alpine, those tune the engine but Italdesign has nothing to say about it.
    But I think too that the engine can easy do 450hp+.<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. take a close look....this V12 engine only has 5.6 liters. compare that to a corvette's 5.7 liter V8. you are sure to see a loss in performance with such a low displacement, but with a gain in weight reduction.......
     
  5. Yep, sacrificed Power for Less Weight... but I bet you could get and EASY 500+HP outta that Bad-ass.

    BUT, it's got enough Power to do 0-60 in 3.6 seconds!<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. It doesn't need more power, it already performs realy good, i'm sure this car isn't tuned much, so you can prob. get a lot more power out of it<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. yeah, if aston can get 600hp outta their V8 lemans engine, then italdesign, could get soo much more out of it, but really, who gives a #### about hp, when youve got looks like that!!!

    beautifull car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Twice as much as mine

    380 bhp is enough 4 ne man
     
  9. We're missing the point here, kids. This car is a decade old!!! And it's still a better design than just about anything produced these days. This is a beautiful, FAST car. It doesn't need more horsepower. It needs PRODUCTION!!!<!-- Signature -->

  11. Sadly, I must agree. A decade old, makes over 500nm torque, weighs 1000kg and looks sleeker than anything from Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini or Lotus from that time
     
  12. Its ok Power for its displacement IMO.

    I've always loved the looks of this car.
     
  13. What the ****??!!

    COMPARE THAT TO A CORVETTE LS1? Only 5.6 liters?

    Well, just another insane moron
     
  14. i like it and less weight iz just like power cuz look at tha performance 3.6 sec that's wut i'm talkin about
     
  15. More hp's are not needed, looking at the performance-stats, but what if they would put 4 turbo's on this cars engine? What could be the maximum hp out of it? 1000+ ? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  16. So many of you had the theory it can get 500+ EASY! Well yeah, you guys probably are the automotive engineering masters that Italidesign needs. They must have complete lack wits if you guys seem to know how much power they should have gotten from the engine, but the ones who made the engine don't.
    Just keep in mind my Toyota Matrix is the BESTEST car ever. I can make a viper driver cry cause i put a cat back exhaust on, gaining about 400 hp.
     
  17. great...another ri*cer...thats all we need on this site


    how old are you? 9? and what the fu(k is Bestest? shouldn't it be best?

    and if you only put a cat back exhaust on, then thts a lie. no cat back sysem will fit on any stock header or exhaust manifold. and even if you did, which i seriously doubt, your hp gain would only be around 20-35. add that to a stock matrix, and you would only have 200-215 hp. NOT 400! besides, the viper has 500 hp, the new one.


    liar. ri*cer. whats the difference?
     
  18. HAHAHA. Looks like you're one of the only people in this website who has his head on straight. Keep up the good work.

  20. thanks!

    i think we need to have an intervention!

    poindexter....do not, i repeat DO NOT start off yor life being a ri*cer, cause everyone will hate you. believe me, i was about o be one, but seeing how everyone on this site was saying how they hate those people with the pissed-off-mosquito sounding engines, and the coffee can sized exhaust. so guess what my dream car was before i came to this site? a white honda civic, blue stripes, lowered, rims, and cat-back/headers. since i was doing that because i thought people would accept me because of my car(not like thats a problem though...) i soon found out that those people are wannabee's, aka ri*cers. so now my dream car is in the garage right now, just got it from a junk yard. not much now, but in about 3 years, its gonna spank all those mustangs, camaros, and civics. its a 1956 chevrlet stepside. i found the engine too, a 496 big block pushing 550 hp. anyways, ri*cers are fake, and they are like playing tic-tac-toe with a 2 year old---easy to beat. so dont become a ri*cer and be the laughing stock of supercars.net. im just trying to save you some embarassment. and if you are going to be a ri*cer and theres no hope changing you, then here's a hint: align your tires after lowering your car/truck. lowering your car 1 inch adds 1 degree of negative camber, roughly. so if you lower your car 2 inches its 2 degrees, 3 inches its 3 degrees, and so on and so forth. if you dont align your tires, you will have uneven tire wear, resulting in a premature tire change. every ri*cer wants to win races, and how fo you win? mostly by traction. no alignment-->not enough tire patch on the ground-->no traction-->no winning.


    just some advice.

    have a nice ri*ce day!

  21. wow you guys are amazing. You could totally tell right through me. Some might have understood i wasn't serious, but you guys are car wizards.. Truly the ones that should explain to Italidesign how to make their cars
     
  22. i knew you were kidding, i was just giving you some real time specs. no offence ment to you at any point in time
