  2. Man this car is ugly. It can't decide wheter it's traditional or modern. i'm not a big fan of british sports cars. they offer nothing that other european sports car manufacturers can't do better. eg, they aren't built better than porsche, don't drive as well as ferrari, don't have the speed of lamborghini. i do rate them higher than american cars...just. but they're not a touch on the japanese supercars. true, they're back to basics, but that doesn't make them better sports cars. as for them trying to modernise british design, this and the Morgan Aero 8 show that that clearly doesn't work.
    Credit to Lotus though, they're amazing coz they don't attempt to stick to their dated british origins!<!-- Signature -->

    you are stupid. all of those ineptitudes of british cars u speak of, are demolished by the TVR cars. those cars combine class and speed at a higher level than any other car. and before you trash on ANY british car, shut the hell up and think for a second; they made the greatest supercar on the planet, the mclaren f1. sit down.

    I have yet to see a sensible post from you where you don't slag a brand or certain make of car off.

    Anyway back to the topic...what a stupid topic!
    Has anyone failed to realise that Britain is part of Europe?
    So there's no point saying Euro cars are better than British.....if you're comparing British cars then you'd have to compare them with individual countries...eg:German

    Brit cars do not suck:

    Bentley/Rolls Royce/Aston Martin......luxury are it's finest
    Lotus-Currently make the greatest handling car on sale
    Noble-2nd best handling car

    TVR-Fast, brutal and simply gorgeous

    McLaren-Fastest production car(to date)

    I do also believe the Tuscan R will have stats than any Lambo on sale today.

    And please no-one give me that rubbish that Jaguar/Lotus/Aston Martin/Bentley/Rolls Royce are owned by foreign comapnies therefore they're not British cause if you do then you are only making yourself look stupid......cause they're are very few British manufacturers that are still independant therefore credit must be given to Noble and TVR on that basis only!

    OK.....rant over<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    i'll simply answer to the topic, this british car sucks only because it has a american motor.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: why britsh sports cars suck

    British sport cars leave a lot to be disered...butwhy its being powered by an old american gas gussling weak noisy V8 is beyond me....

  8. Re: why britsh sports cars suck

    i dont particularly care for any foreign car manufacturers (im not biased its just my honest opinion) but numbers dont lie and based on that i would hardly say that british sports cars "suck".

So are you saying the Mclaren sucks? IT'S THE FASTEST DAMN PRODUCTION CAR IN THE WORLD. This car does look cool though.

    I wouldn't say a TVR is classy. They seem crude to me. Jaguar is classy. Aston Martin is classy. Rolls is classy. Bentley. Morgan. You get the point. England has lots of classy cars. And almost every one is fast, or at least not slow. Why did you pick TVR?

    oh, and "the greatest supercar on the planet, the mclaren f1" was powered by Germany.

    But anyway, I like British cars.

    You ignorant child.
    Just because Ford bought Jag does not make Jag an american car or an american car company. The only car that Jag uses a Ford engine in is it's trashy 'economy-class' car.. the rest are all pure cat. The new lincoln's (yeah I said lincoln) are only remotely fast because they use the Jaguar V-8.. so before you start talking crap, please at least make an effort not to be 100% wrong.<!-- Signature -->

  19. Re: why britsh sports cars suck

    British cars are classy, but they don't give performance like lambo and ferrari. That's what these "assholes" are trying to get at. They didn't say that britain made the world cars in the world, they just said that there are many more cars that give better top speed and acceleration.<!-- Signature -->

    British sports cars don't suck, but this one is an exception. Me personaly not a big fan.<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: why britsh sports cars suck

    Dude, the U.K is in Europe too. British cars evoke a certian passion. They are fluid, dynamic designs coupled with great handling[a british trademark]. Lotus in my opinion is one of the greatest manufactuers of all time. The esprit and elise are some of the best cars ever.
     
  24. Re: why britsh sports cars suck!!!!

    says the man who's name is gt40...

    my god man, do you even realize the gt40 is almost purely british?!?!?!?!?!?
     
  25. Re: why britsh sports cars suck!!!!

    germany= solid and reliable cars
    italy= passionate and agressive cars
    england= gentleman's cars
    american cars= .....?
    asian cars= copies without a soul (most of them anyway)

    just a rough opinion, there are offcourse exceptions for everything
