  1. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    Let me explain. The McLaren was the ultimate supercar but after a long, long righn at the top it has been replaced by the Koenigsegg CC8S.
    For a car to be a supercar it has to be a no compromise racer for the road wich equates to less comforts but more performance due to less weight.
    This car however is not a no compromise car. Look at the interior. This my Supercars.net buddies is more than a supercar it has more performance and considerable comfort in it's very nice interior. Bugatti has for the second time, started a century with a bang cos her is the first ultracar.
    Thats a phrase I heard on another forum so I'm not taking credit for thing that up.

  6. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    No, their not that high anyway. I do that cos I want to do that like I'm doing this now.
    I was making a little joke. If that offends you then tough cos theirs nowt I'm gonna do cos I didn't see anything wrong with it.
    This is my forum anyway so I can reply how I want. As long as it's not spam.

    Maybe he was just agreeing?
     
  8. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    yeah i agree this isnt the ultimate supercar. it has amazing peformance, but it is by no means a super car. doesnt have the style that lamborghinis and ferraris have, which in my mind ARE super.
     
  9. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    It's nice that you agree this is'nt the ultimate supercar but whether it looked like a Lamborghini or Ferrari had nothing to do with it.
     
  10. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    I'm also surprised ferarri or Lamborghini hasn't made a car to go over 250mph because when I think of supercar I think of Ferrari.
     
  11. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    Apparently McLaren is going to make 3 new supercars for each supercar class 1 to beat the 360 Stradale's class 2 to beat the Carrera GT's class and 3 to beat the Enzo, you would think that they would want to at least have a go at beating this and reclaiming the worlds fastest production car title.
     
  12. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    Really? I never knew of this.

    Maybe the one thats meant to compete with the Carrera GT is the Mercedes-McLaren SLR?
     
  13. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    No the SLR is a completely different project. I've read this in a couple of magazines now and I think the new cars will be out in around 2005.
     
  14. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    The SLR is a front engined GT car debuting next motnht at the Frankfurt auto show.

    Plus the ultimate supercar is still the F40 - its not the fastest but defiantely is the wildest.

    In terms of looks, the Countach still rules.

    I saw a tesst on TV, they got all these new supercars together and got loadsa people to choose thier favourite. then they brought a Countach round the corner and everyone loved it more - still has an extreme, modern look that hasnt dated, twenty years on.
     
  15. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    someone explain to me how this isnt the ultimate supercar? it will out perform anything on the road period...and you could drive it everyday to the grocery store if you wanted...
     
  16. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    Thats why this is'nt the ultimate supercar, it compromises too much with it's luxury interior and apparently it has one of the best quality sound systems ever fitted into a car as well.
    Supercar = No compromise extreem performane, no comforts and less weight
    Ultracar (or whatever you call them) = Extreem performance with all the comforts and extras still there and more weight.
     
  17. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    How can you people speculate until this is actually released - theres hundereds of posts here based on nothing. Enough with the concepts, if its as good as they say it is, then where is it - 250mph+ coupled to super luxury. The F1 just turned ten years old and it is still top of the pile - an utter disgrace in terms of progress as much as i love the F1 (the Koeniggsegggeqeegggegggeg is not better).

    The more i hear about this car, the more luxurious, powerful and faster it is. Plus where to VW get off making 3 cars in a similar segment of the market - isnt it better to focus on one rather then having two others that are second rate - and therefore a waste of time in terms of development and production.
     
  18. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    There is'nt much speculation needed, the tech spec speaks for it'self, everything I've said about it is based on what it's meant to acheive, and the CC8s is better than the F1.
     
  19. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    The Mclaren F1 doesnt have any official speed tests.
     
  20. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    Correct, it's top speed run was achieved by TopGear whith Tiff Needel.
     
  21. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    And i think that is also the one where they bumped up the rev limiter, and took off the catalytic converter, essentially raising the power of the car, making it, a non-production car.
     
  22. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    That still classed but the normal top speed was in the early 230MPH range which was still a record time, the 241Mph was done to prove that the car could break 240Mph which was the next barrier.
     
  23. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    Everyone keeps quoting the 241mph top speed. They know shite.
     
  24. Re: This is'nt the ultimate supercar.

    this is not only a ultracar (quote from another forum) but it is the only car, first time you read about it, u just sat there in awe.. like this.. "what the #$%# is that? W16 what the #$%#, holy shit, quad-turbo AWD 7 speed, thats #$%#ing mad as, i want one so #$%#ing bad"

    that is all.
