This Car sounds like a plane!

  1. i've got a video about supercarss, and when Jeremy Clarkson drove this down a disused airstrip at abotu 170 mph, it sounded liek a plane, you know, the ones with propellors! it is a sweeeeeeeeeet car, but i can't help wonderin why the windscreen it arse-shaped?! (Take a close look at the pics), wouldn't that be really hard to soo out of, it'll be like a drink-driving simulator!<!-- Signature -->

    this car is sweet, but they should drp the V8, and drop in their V12!!!

    ok this is the 3rd foroum i'v seen with people talkin about the goat THE GOAT IS AN OLD PONTIAC GTO. NOT THIS PEICE OF CRAP THAT I JUST SAW. And i think that they should put in a V10 cuase i doubt a V12 would fit. if they made this and put a V12 in it would be way longer.

    GOAT=Greatest OF All Time. I'd agree with the 917/30.

    This car looks good but you gotta have smaller wheels cause it just looks hiddeus with 20" wheels, 18" or at the most 19" would be enough.
    But I agree that thay schould put a bigger engine like a V10, not as big as a V12, and loose all the luxury and just make for the track.

    And no matter what loose the 5-speed auto and put in a six geared manual.

    in the video i saw, there was a warning light on the dash...saying transmission problem...but there wasn't a problem, cos they'd fitted a 6spd Manual for the presenter to play with.

    lol

    Good point. This is basically a road going GT race car. A few lighter components and and number on the door as well as a roll cage and this could be raced in many GT series. I am quite disappointed by a five speed as this car should have a close ratio six speed or perhaps an optional paddle shift to showcase Jaguar's F-1 technology such as BMW and Ferrari. But i guess if it had to be a ture GT car then it must stay stick.
