    This will own the new vette. Even if the new vette only weighed 3000 pounds, it would have to have 681 bhp to have the same power/weight ratio. Besides, who would cross shop this and a vette. This is a quality hand built machine, and is exclusive, hence the high price.
     
  3. Re: this thing will FLYYYYYY

    I'm always around hot rods (30's-60's cars) and even I have to say this is ugly. BUT WHO CARES?? 500 hp in that little thing would be some shit. Only thing that looked like more fun was a 800 hp Morris Minor I saw at the last Goodguys show I went to in Tampa. Oh, the 800 hp was before nitrous, and no, it wasn't the original engine (it was a blown Ford V8).

    I think that if you don't like this car you are insane. It is nice. Unique. Sexy. Smooth. Sleek. It will thke the Vipers ass any day!<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: this thing will FLYYYYYY

    I love how you guys keep saying " oh wow, it's so light and powerful...it would be so fast against street cars like the 'vette and the viper...bla bla bla", but you seem to be forgetting one thing: IT'S A RACE CAR! This car is not street legal, so any comparison made to a street car is null and irrelevant. It runs slick tires, has a carbon fiber body and various carbon fiber pieces throughout, it's interior is stripped down to only necessities, and every possible pain is taken to make it as fast as possible ON THE RACE TRACK. And it's not fast either. It's being beaten into the ground by the Porsches and Ferraris, and if the Callaway C12R ( a derivative of the corvette which some of you have said is so inferior to this car) were at Le Mans this year it would slap this thing around like a red-headed step child. After all, the Callaway claimed pole in the GT class last year. So, 1. this car shouldn't be compared to street cars since its maximium power and minimum weight are determined by someone other than the engineers that built it (the A.C.O. has final say on those specs), and it's not street legal by any stretch of the imagination 2. this car is not that fast compared to its competition, so don't kid yourselves.
     
  7. Re: One awesome race car

    This car is being sent to LeMans this year (reliabilty may be a problem), with over 400bhp, it looks like Porsche will complain about this GT car aswell.

    when BMW introduces tne Mini Cooper M, they need to make that into a GT car--that would be great!<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: One awesome race car

    The porsche teams at Le Mans are not going to complain about this car because they are much, much faster. The Racers Group Porsche was 36 seconds faster than this car in pre-qualifying. Plus the reliability on this thing sucks; within 11 laps it had blown its engine. Slow + Fragile = terrible car for Le Mans
     
  11. Iffy colour scheme

    It would have looked a lot better if it wasn't yellow.
    Also i'm more than a little worried about it having 500bhp, i mean that's almost as much as the MG LMP675 car, and at least the MG is a real racing car. the road car is a lot better.
     
  12. Re: Iffy colour scheme

    I have posted this in another thread but will post it again here.

    The reason it is this colour is because it is sponsored by DeWalt power tools. DeWalt designated colours are Black and Amber(yellowish)
    This is the only reason this car is this colour. All Dewalt sponsored cars are these two colours. Just thought I would let you guys know.
     
  13. Re: Iffy colour scheme

    I made the 500hp comment because the last time i saw a morgan racing, it looked a bit like it was unable to handle that sort of power, although no doubt this one will be better. That was at the 1996 BPR event at Brands Hatch (won convincingly by the Porsche GT-One)

    Poor kid, are you colorblind? It's orange, not yellow.
