  3. Re: Is this really a supercar?

    look at the defination on "Super".
    It depends purely on perspective.

    Most here do like this car, therefore, we did answer your question.

  4. Look at curb weight, bippo

    That's why this car is important. It's weight isn't astronomical like most cars of this age. 75 mph was pretty good in it's day!

  7. All old cars look the same.

    Old Cars are rubish. they're all too similar to tell apart. New cars RULE, like the Pagini Zonda and Merc. CLK GTR

    you haven't seen many old cars, have you?

    Imagine yourself siting at a stoplight. next to you is a one nice sportscar. You rev your engine, he revs his. The light goes green...and he kicks your ass. Who cares, this car is the coolest car ever! This is the pimpingest car in the world. PLEASE PRODUCE THIS CAR LANCIA. if you still exist.

  12. Re: why dont they produce this car

    But lets say that you put, say, a Viper V10 with Stage 2 Tubos. That would just be too cool! Now this IS the coolest car ever!
     
  13. Re: why dont they produce this car

    I doubt they're gonna make this car, cuz it's um... kinda not the 1920's anymore
     
  15. Re: why dont they produce this car

    hey PennyWise were u drunk or sth when u posted that mssg? hahaha
    yeah I suppose it is a nice car, but it's like from the 1920's.
    if u really wanted u could prolly pick up an old one of these at some old timer auction in Europe.
    But now that you're back to your senses (I hope) you may wanna rethink that one....
    but hey, everyone has their own taste..<!-- Signature -->

  21. Some of you have no sense...

    I noticed that a lot of people who post at this site judge the value of a car by either its looks, its performance, or some combination, which is fine. However, a lot of people judge the looks and performance figures relative to what is commonly capable by cars today, which is not ok. In fact, it's pretty stupid.

    Consider this car. It was made in 1928. For a car to go 75mph out of a 4 cylinder engine back then was a serious achievement. Independent front/rear suspension is also an innovation, as is the monocoque body, and focus on light weight materials. The looks might not be in style today, but in 1928, this style was as common as the SUV style is today. This was a supercar of its time, and to compare it to cars of today is foolish.

    There are people that say that this or that shouldn't be on supercars.net for some reason or another. Usually its because it's either an antique vehicle, or because its a non-performance flashy concept. Obviously, this site provides much more than "supercars". Innovations and advancements in technology are also showcased... <!-- Signature -->

    I whole heartidly agree with everything you have said. When analizing an example such as the 1928 Lambda I think everyone should try to imagine this car IN 1928, making comparisons to other marques of the era.

    Without innovation in engineering, as seen on the Lambda, the McLaren F1 never would have come about.

    one of the few people with a working brain on this site
     
  24. Re: Some of you have no sense...

    well said!
     
  25. Re: Some of you have no sense...

    Although while not contributing any significant information, I must also agree with the previous comments.

    I also have to thank one Mr. Richard Owen for posting such cars on his wonderful website :eek:) I know that I (as well as many other people on this site) enjoy tracking cars through their history before they developed into the wonderful machines they are today. Almost an education of some sorts, if you will.
