Re: This Car Is A Fraud!!

  1. Damn straight! Anybody that doesn't talk about cars from here on out can refer to the last line of my signature. You know...IMO, the best car isn't even invented and is probably impossible to invent. Here goes...the torque and sound of an NA American big block, coupled with the performance and styling of expensive European cars, with the economy factor of the hybrid Japanese cars and with a price tag similar to a Korean car. Now THAT would be a near perfect car. GO CARS!!! Can I get a HELL YEA?!<!-- Signature -->

    HELL YEA!

    dunno about the price though, if a car that awesome was the price of your local hyundai, every idiot would buy one.
     
  3. Get your facts straight. Buggati's are manufactured in france. Ferrari Makes incredible cars. They may go faster than the vette but the ZO6 has beat them. Though it only goes 180, I see the vette as a formidable ferrari competitor[but it cannot beat the F40,F50 or F60] so don't think the vette is all crap. However, this car has held the speed record for 14 years. Do you really think Buggati will hold it for that long? Even though the Veyron is very nice, It will not hold the speed record as long as this car has. <!-- Signature -->

    Get my facts straight? You better know what you’re talking about when you get cocky. The original Bugattis were built by Italian born Ettore Bugatti in Molsheim, France where he was living. He became sick after WW2 and stopped. The name carried on in a quietly way until the 50s before folding. However, in 1988 the company was reopened by Italian businessmen like Romano Artioli and Ettore’s son Michele Bugatti in Campogalliano Italy near Modena. They produced the EB110 which stood for Ettore Bugatti and what his age would have been (110).

    The car was tested at Nardo where it set 2 records (at the time), fastest production car in the world (218mph/351kph), and fastest car in the world running on methane gas (214.2mph/344.7kph). It also set a record for fastest car on a frozen surface tested on a stretch of frozen sea in the Arctic circle (184.1mph/296.3kph). Now the reproduced cars are keeping most of their Italian parts and engineers but are being serviced and constructed in Germany. The Veyron is owned by VW but is still maintaining it’s many of its Italian engineers. Whether it holds its records for 14 years or not, only time will tell but this car (Sledgehammer) may be 14 years old but its record is not. In the 90’s modified Diablos did pass its speed record. They were just not officially tested in the States. Many on the people in these forums like to say that since it was not officially tested by sources that they know of that it isn’t faster. If you look at the Nardo track results the fastest car tested was the EB110SS. But we all know the Mclaren is faster. So whether it is officially tested at Nardo or not I acknowledge that the F1 is faster. The problem here is a constant refusal to acknowledge the truth.

  5. Gunther, now I’m cute? I was right all along you really are a #%$. A #%$ in desperate need of a history lesson. 135-1? LOL Tell yourself what you need to hear you jealous #$%#. But if Italy lost the war why were no sanctions put on them like in Germany or Japan? Why did they gain land in Austria rather than lose land? It’s beside the point. This is a car site. If you want to talk cars (LOL Chevy better than Ferrari), I’ll be more than eager to continue laughing at you. But if you are going to continue posting gay shit, or war shit, or talk about farts I will disregard further posts. Especially because you are too much of a pussy to even answer questions. You want to talk about how much you wish you were Italian by insulting us, tell your boyfriend…it’ll make great pillow talk. But if you want a history lesson, e-mail me at g_solinas@hotmail.com. In case you haven’t noticed…your bullshit is boring people who want to talk about cars. If you want your head kicked up over your shoulders let me know and I’ll also send you my address, cause your gay remarks tell me you must be one really tough guy (at-at). You #%$got. By the way keep hiding behind the flag of the EU, you bullshitter. No one educated in Europe can be that messed up over wars that took place there. You’re a bad liar.

  7. Hey ****-ther. Is that what you do between getting #$%#ed in the ass? Insult those you admire? Really mature. You know what I wish on you. I hope you and your mother get diagnosed with glaucoma. Tonight preferably. Then you (if your lucky) will get sent to Calabria, Italy to get treated by the only doctor in the world who is successfully treating it. Dr. Bella. A dego, or a WOP like you say. That would humble you and teach you respect. You are a disgusting misinformed bigot. I don’t know maybe your father’s molestation finally got to you, maybe your boyfriend doesn’t #$%# you right. But don’t get all jealous of us because of our rich history, good food, and incredible cars.
    By the way, Columbus existed (even retards know that), and Galileo was the first to go public about our solar system. But I’m with gsolinas. No more chit chat with someone who is clearly brain deficient. As far as I’m concerned, if you and your boyfriend died of AIDS it wouldn’t change my life. And there isn’t a person on this forum, Italian or otherwise that would miss you.
     
  8. Gunther: Please don't respond to any of these posts aimed at you. You obviously don't know how to deal with them. No offense.

    gsolinas: CARS man! CARS, not #$*#gots! LOL! Let him go. Just ask yourself, "Is he worth my time?".

    jcazz: Same as above.

    EvilNinja: Thank you for keeping the name calling down and for talking somewhat about cars.

    BigBlock: What the hell man?! How many of your 2200+ posts are just bullsh!t posts like your last one just to get your count higher? I'm betting on more than half. I'm not going to do it but I wouldn't be surprised if someone reported you to the admins for violating that rule about spamming.

    Anyway, does anyone know when the next time the C5R and Team Oreca race again. I just got DirecTV and have Speed Channel and I would like to watch it.<!-- Signature -->

First i don't make bullshit posts, a lot of people here diss and insult the american car industry, and you think that i should accept that? Second a lot of people started dissing this car because of its awesome performances, so should i let people insult it? The answer is no! Second, i am respectful with people who respect our cars industry and who doesn't make easy criticising of our cars. Now i apologize if i have been a bit rude but i want your apologize too? I am waiting for your answer. </b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->
    Hmm...explainations? Bullsh!t posts consist of posts that are used for the solitary purpose of raising your post count. Posts like "Your right." or "I couldn't agree more" or "Yes." are bulsh!t posts if not followed by anything. They would be fine if you wouldn't do it all the fu(king time! Look at the thread lists...your long-a$$ name is on nearly every fu(king thread. And if you look at the post you made in that thread, it's probably something similar to the above mentioned bullsh!t posts. If you have a problem with people "dissing" on American cars, then state your OWN opinion like me and everyone else have been doing. You have no need to apologize for rudeness because you were not being rude. All you were doing was making bullsh!t posts. This quoted posts is probably the most revealing of your OWN opinion and the longest post you have made in a loooong time. I will not apologize because I have nothing to apologize for.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Vette1 that was directed at gunther.
    This is for everyone:
    Look as far as the Gemballa road test, I’m trying to find where it was but lets face it, its credibility to you is roughly the same credibility the Callaway site holds to me. Neither are 100%. And even if I found it I’m sure that it would somehow still not be credible enough. Who gives a shit, everyone here is splitting hairs. Is a 1mph difference that important to you? Is having the fastest car in the world that important to you? Get used to not having that claim because if you count the Sledgehammer then there are countless modified cars out there capable of a better top speed. We just don’t know it for sure because they are “one offs”, kind of like this. Or do you guys think we really know everything there is to know in the record books. This site gives it the top spot but this isn’t the car bible. It has plenty of cars that have NA beside the top speed meaning they too don’t know everything. Leave it alone. It is fast, but it isn’t the fastest. And please don’t reply that its officially the fastest because when challenged to produce the record books no one came up with shit. According to the Guiness Book of World Records the Mclaren F1 is the fastest production car in the world proving they don’t know everything either. We all know faster cars exist. So drop it already. No one here is going to agree. I will remain adamant that faster cars exist while you will continue to support this car, neither of us can post proof that the other will accept as “credible” so leave it alone. You like this thing, congratulations. I could think of better cars to buy with my money.

  13. Only One car was built, SO WHAT! Chevrolet doesn't build super expensive exotic cars like Bugatti. Bugatti will only sell a few hundred of there new Veyron, Where as Chevrolet will sell thousands of Vettes.
    The Sledgehammer was built by Reeves Callaway 14 Years Ago, and it still has a higher Top Speed than your Veyron. And to top it off the Sledgehammer cost $400,000, Half As Much as the $800,000 Veyron.
    It took somebody 14 years to come-up with anything even close to the Sledgehammer, and now that someone finally has they want twice as much as the what the Sledgehammer went for.
     
  14. than don't post here, cornu. Until you have proof otherwise, stay away. There isn't any room for more bullshit stay out.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Why should he bother posting proof. You won't accept it. Bullshit to you is anything that you don't want to hear.<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. dude, I accept a lot of things. Guibo, for instance supplies everyone with links to shit all the time, in a very un-biased fashion. But right here in this forum, the fact that it's posted on this site, which is why this forum is here, and we will consider it fact until proven otherwise. Plus, SCnet is very prompt when it comes to posting new numbers.

    In otherwords, Go talk about your Bugatti on it's Forum. Unless you are afraid....<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Are you implying that the Bugatti Veyron won't be capable of the speeds it claims. They have been factory tested. Should gsolinas really contact Bugatti to have them send you the results. Wow that is ridiculous.
     
  18. i dont care what anyone says, imports are the best. sure domestics are good,but overall quality and performance for imports is better and more reliable.
    one other thing, many people say that when you buy a new american car it starts breaking down the next year.
    -----toyota rocks-----<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. "So again, until its proven to be beaten this is this holds the RECORD ( you know that that means right.. its been RECORDED) for the highest street legal topspeed."

    Where? Show me where it has been recorded. I bet if you looked at the record books you'd be disappointed. Unless you really think we (car fans) know all of the test results that have occurred. You want proof. So do I. Show me the record.
     
  20. bugatti is shit, no one buys them. that is why they are so damn expensive.
     
  21. dude, u check out the ferarri's and vipers and vettes, they r neck and neck top competitors, but look at the #$%#in prices on the shit, americans have like half the price and do just as good, imagine if we put half a mill into a car.........
     
  22. half a mil. gets u this sledgehammer POS moron.

    personal, i put down all companies but dodge, but if it goes national im all american, dodge can outperform chevy with same numbers on power and even weighing more......if hennessey built the venom800TT better, or went for a venom900 or so to up the price NEAR u imports, it would double yur performance, bad enough the car already does 0-60 in 2.4 to kill all imports, and like ive seen before, the venom800TT has been topped at 9.99secs on 1/4, and thre is a video of it doin 10.1 IN THE RAIN, all info and videos at this site

  24. That’s hardly proof EvilNinja unless you really believe the cars own website. Besides, how long ago was that test conducted? Even if it did do it, to think no other car has just because you haven’t read about it is rather closed minded. If you posting a Callaway site is valid then the Lamborghini sites that were posted are also fair game.

    Dodgedude. The Viper Venom 800tt is not really a Dodge, it’s a Dodge Hennessey. Not fair to say that Dodge is better then Chevrolet based on that because by that standard you also have to consider other co-productions like the Diablo Gemballa and the Sledgehammer, which can both outperform the 800tt (without slicks by the way).

    I see this is still on going <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    Thing is gsolinas is that the test that was conducted here, was done at the Technical Research Center (TRC) in Columbus Ohio. That is where the top speed was officially recorded. And if you want, you can go there and have the Sledgehammer’s top speed verified.

    However the Lamborghini sites that were posted simply state "a French Car Magazine". Meaning there is no way to verify the results.....
    No matter how much you may love European makes, you can’t deny this way to vague to be considered creditable.

    No one is saying that there isn't a car that is capable of beating this record, but no car has yet to prove it can (and still remain street legal).
