    Oh really, sounds interesting. So tell me, what's the mystery VIN of your "so called" Ferrari F50? Look under the steering column and tell me the imprint code on the plate. Why dont you post pics of your high milage Ferrari F50 instead of pictures out of magazines? Or is it because your "invisible" dream car cant be photographed? You honestly sound like a Ferrari driver, one that pushes a Ferrari Hot Wheels across his table.

    And to prove you have some serious BS problems, why in the hell would you race a Ferrari F50 against Mustangs, Firebirds, Camaros, and Covettes? You 'smoked' countless legendary muscle cars all across the US, and Jap cars that are severely under powered compared to you. If you want to race, I'll run your big shot Ferrari F50 vs. my puny lil Chevy powered camaro. Ive done some lil mods to my car, but nothing your big bad Legendary Muscle Car killer cant handle. Im so sure you are full of BS, I'd even be man enough to wager my Camaro vs. your Ferrari that i'd not lose. What about you? It's only a 1/4 mile, big F50 man.
    After all, you have enough $$ to pick your car up directly from the factory and drive it everyday for work, you could take my Camaro and just sell it for gas money. Im in Florida, Moroso Motorsports track will be the track. I'll be waiting. And my schedule is clear what ever day you can drive the "Ferrari" down. Really, its not a problem.

    Gee, Ferrari F50 the best car in the world? Duh, hate to bring this to your attention, but have u ever heard of a McLaren? Sorry, out performs your lil F50...kinda like a DeLorean VS a F50!!!

    You can compare apples to apples, oranges to oranges, but a hamburger to a steak is no comparison. I like my hamburger. And when im done with you, i'll like my "invisible" Ferrari too.

  2. I hope not! I cant stand ignorant rants from people that know jack chit about everything.
    Im an advid fan of the DeLorean, because unlike most people, I get the luxury of driving around in one every once and a while. My friend owns a 1982 that he uses as a show car, and unfortunately he has to sell it in November to move to Boston. Lucky for me, he has a friend that loves his car (me), so the SS Beauty will be mine as soon as he moves. As you can tell by my signiture, I plan on finishing John DeLorean's intentions by mounting two turbos from Mitsubishi Starions. Small enough to spool up a good amount of boost without damaging the engine.
    Im sick of people like him (now known as "Mr. Hot Wheels Ferrari F50") comparing a fantastic car like the DeLorean (which was built 20 years ago) against todays modern sports cars.

    1. The DeLorean was a contender in the realm of the sports cars of its time: The Corvette, the Porsche 944, Ferrari 308, and the Mercedes Benz (not only performance, but functionality). Cars like McLarens and Ferrari F50's werent even a wet dream yet.
    2. The DeLorean's performance of 130bhp may sound very puny today, but look at the HP output of the cars it was against. Back in the early 80's, Pontiac, Chevy, and Ford weren't building 350 hp Pony cars like they are doing today. The DeLorean was a definite contender. Now if John Delorean was able to produce his 1984 TT model, the car would have pushed over 215 HP, which is equal to a 1994 Ford Mustang GT.
    3. The car's Stainless Steel panels were guaranteed to last a MINIMUM of 25 years. Show me an original 20 year old Mustang with no rust on it. (one that doesnt sit in a garage 350 out of the 365 days per year).
    4. Most people who do the criticizing, such as Mr. Hot Wheels Ferrari F50, have never been in a DeLorean. They've never ridden in a DeLorean. They only know of the company's spotty past, and what they are told by other morons. Ive talked to so many people who "claim" to know everything about DeLoreans, saying everything from the car having Ford motors (must be thinking of the Pantera), to saying that most of the cars have coccaine inside of them.

    It's good to see a website dedicated to great automobiles, and even greater to find people who are still interested in Deloreans.
    I hope that most people will learn more about the car besides what they understand is a sportscar today, and what was a sportscar 20 years ago. <!-- Signature -->
     
  3. ok, since youre rich and if you are an F50 owner, congratulations. you guys doubted someone saying they owned a 2000 Porshe 911 turbo, and i stood up for him, he found my email and sent me some pics(its a nice black one). he lost his 2000 Boxster S though do to a friend racing a vette(it was wet and he slid off the road). he has alot, and his normal cruiser is a Civic CRX. anyways, i dont doubt it. pssst!*whispering to F50 Rulez* would you donate to my delorean fund? im saving for it.<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. I don't understand how anyone could hate could hate a car that has gull wing doors, is stainless steel, can run on compost, and travel through time... it just makes no sense.

    On a more serious note, me and a friend of mine saw that a delorean was for sale at a car dealership in the minneapolis. It had 30,000 miles on it and was selling for $14,000. We test drove it and had the time of our lives. Granted, it is a very slow car and most other modern day cars can beat it with no problem... this is not the point... it's all about the image.
     
  5. true(but i still want upgrades), the back to the future stuff is old, cut it out. yes the compost i havnt heard, but damn it... the best was some on at the mall parking lot at nite yelling "MARTY!".<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. THIS CAR SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It is not suprising that this car is rated as one of the most worst cars by both Motor Trend and Road&Track magazines.This car cost $25,000 in 1981,that is about $45,000 today.For that much money I'm expecting a V8 engine that makes 300 horsepower.Not a puny V6 with only 140 hp.Even a Ford Taurus can smoke this car.This car is also one of the ugliest car ever made.

    A Ferrari F50 on the other hand,is very stylish and fast.It is one of the fastest,most successful and most beautiful car out there.It has a 4.7 liter engine that makes an incredible 513 horsepower,a top speed of 202 MPH and go from 0 to 60 in only 3.7 seconds.The car is also very unique.No other road car has ever incorporated as much Formula-1 technology as the F50.This amazing machine is worth well over $800,000,yet it only cost around $500,000.
     
  7. well, in 1981 this car rocked. it went against ferrari, corvette and porshe 911 and 924. if you compare a car that is around 14 years difference, you are a stupid Fucker. its also a car that has a V6 versus a V12 or V14 even making it quite an uneven race dont you think? and only 17 posts. hell ihave other names that add on to this that will equal oer 500 posts. you begginers are #$%#s!<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. What V-14?<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. i didnt remember what engine the F50 had. now i know its a V12, just like most other ferraris.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. unfortunately you poor little misguided italian child wannabe a ferrari cost more like1,957567,957346.00
    so suck on those numbers fool !

  11. Awww, hes just a dumb kid who loves his Ferrari F50. So kid, listen up
    ... Go to the Ferrari forums and rag about your car there. If you
    can't apreciate an automotive legend like this (whether fast, or slow)
    then you shouldent be here. And remember - if you do more posts like
    the one above, know that guys like us are gonna come after you. ok!? <!-- Signature -->
     
  12. If u think this car sux u r smoking crack. U cannot compare this to a Ferrari. Ferraris cost 500,000 dollars vs a DeLorean that costs 25,000. Y didnt they use a Ferrari for Back To The Future 1 2 and 3????
    Why dont u think about what your comparingnext time before u open your scrawny little mouth.
     
  13. This car was a breakthrough of its time, if the company hadn't been shut down the delorean would still be here. Complete stainless steel body... thats awsome. peice of history.
     
  14. You obviously haven't heard of the NEW deLorean concepts; Firestar 500 (runs 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and will sell for $20,000) and DMC2 which pushes 1,250 hp.
    Hmmm.....It looks like DELOREAN is possibly making two machines that can chew any ferrari a new arsehole.

    who will suck then?
     
  15. JZD cant afford, with that price and performing, it wouldnt last. the DMC-12 is awsome, but he left stainless, and he is in deep shit still. i should know. that report is coming along wonderfully!<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. i could take this with my neon
     
  17. The car wasn't designed to be a super-exotic sports car. It was designed to be an incredibly safe car, an area in which it succeeds mightily. If it weren't for America emmisions restrictions, the engine would have be adequate, but the EPA and the gov't bogged it WAY down. That being said, it's still an incredibly cool ride.

    Hey dip shit ass muncher, while ytour at lets compare a monvan and an f1 car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  20. This car does not suck, its reliable, economical around 27mpg, and gets the ladies so what sucks about that?? This cars handles very well it outhandles my dads mustang GT with no effort.

    Plus this car isnt slow it would kick a Neons ass for sure. The 130hp engine seems low but the car is much lighter that cars of today. And has better figures that on this site.
     
  21. to admit it, i havnt driven in one or even heard them run in real, but this car is a gorgous machine. the only reason they take the slaloms at 55.1 mph is because they cant accelerate. they might not have 9.5 0-60 and many magazines could have done shit wrong for all we know! cars now like the new corolla with 130 hp and technology cant keep up. im proud of the delorean even though most people couldnt give a shit about it. i have my personal favorite, and its unique. i also like to go train watching (if you can get over 33tons of steel to get to 70+ mph... call me). also ctching lizards. i like being unique and this car adds on! <!-- Signature -->
     
  22. An F-50 is a fiberglass P.O.S!!
     
  23. lol, i wouldnt say that bud, then again, i wouldnt say the Delorean sucks either. both cars are great, though Deloreans arent around anymore. i love to see a new one. another stainless steel beaut <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  24. For those of you who think this car sucks, well you can just Shut The Hell up because this car here was a top competitor in the 80's, so what if it died quckly when it was there it put up a hell of a fight.<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. it sure did, and that is my point.<!-- Signature -->
