Why Diss This Car?????

  1. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    does anyone in this forum know somebody that drove a 2003 GT40? Best bet is no one. The car has an estimated to sell for $100,000 and only a car colector would buy it so he/she could put it next to their classic 1960 Ford GT40. I really don't know why you are discussing the handling because it will be modified for a race track if it is ment to be driven there. The new GT40 is designed specifically as a collector's item and to put an impression on car shows.

    Likewise, the GT90 is a completely different model from the GT40. All that is similar is its low height, big grill, the location of the tires (that being the corners of the vehicle), and other aspects based on appearence. Note the three major differences: 1) V8 to V12 Quad turbo 2) 1960's to 1990's 3) designed for speed in comparison to designed to discover how a car designed almost completely from triangles would get a reaction from the public.

    Remember the GT40 has been and will be massed produced and the GT90 has barely even left the drawing board and only made it to a working prototype.

    You guys are comparing 2 totally different cars that are uncomparable.

    GT90 concept is a prototype, that never was driven in everyday conditions, it has never won any races, no tests have been made by neutral testers etc. All you have are numbers given by ford. Nobody knows hot the GT90 behaves on city streets or on a racetrack.

    On the other hand McLaren F1 has Le Mans and many other race victories and its is totally 100% production vehicle that you could buy if you had the money. And its performance matches the numbers that the factory gave out.

    If you take production cars, then most specialists/car journalists count McLaren F1 LM as the worlds fastest production car.

    I remind you. The GT90 was initially designed to be produced in low quantity (around 100 per year) and the model is fully capable of doing so. It didn't happen because leadership changed in Ford.
     
  6. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    They Did Test Drive It, How Do You Think They Got The Numbers And Also There's Many Production Cars That Can Go Faster Then The Mclaren
     
  7. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    I actually think the car looks quite good. It's overall shape reminds of the Veyron (or should I say the Veyron reminds me of the GT90).

    dont listen to morons, its the people who buy shoes for 200 dollars just because they are nike, or a 300,000 dollar car just because its a ferrari, or buy a 20 grand watch JUST because its a rolex that diss this car. Despite the obvious fact that this is a ford and fords are not the most exciting, reliable or fast cars in the world, this car can kick any super cars ass, or at the very least HOLD ITS OWN. FIrst of all this car is beautiful, second of all the engine is unmatched, and thirdly it is HAIR RAISING FAST. This car HAS to be produced, only after it whoops the **** out of the overrated McClaren will people shut up about this car being bad.

    What are your grounds on calling this car a piece of shit? JUST BECAUSE ITS A FORD?

    P.S. For people who diss this car JUST because its a ford **** YOU, "arrogance is bliss."

    every plublished place i have seen the gt90 mentioned, they always say the top speed is 235+ mph... make note of the plus. All the other speeds mentioned are most likely false. They will not run the car as fast as it will go because it was a concept for a show room, not to break records and the mclaren( by the way, the mclaren company no longer exsists).
     
  10. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    Yes the Mclaren company exsits take a look at their website. Plus their helping Mercedes create the SLR.

    SupraMan I like you. You are an example of good forum interaction. You have many friends and people enjoy reading your posts. Keep it up man. You never start fights, and always have important information. I see you everywhere and never a stupid comment or topic made by you EVER.
     
  12. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    Yeah, i need to get up to date on foreign car manufactures. Do you know if they're a subdivision of some other company or all alone. If they're still alone, that's something you don't see too much of anymore.
     
  13. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    Thats ridiculous, you honestly don't think they could have put out that kind of power without the 4 turbos? Shit man U.S. is all about make N/A power. They made it with 4 turbos for a reason.
     
  14. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    uh what did u just say?
     
  15. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    "to right man dis car is cool. the diss this i kick their ass."

    He said (I think): "too right man, this car is cool. if they diss this car, I'll kick their ass."

  17. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    This post didnt have a single thing to do with the topic. So im guessing you dont have anything intelligent to say so your try to bag on SkylineFreak about Skylines which were not evened mentioned in this whole #$%#ing topic. SkylineFreak was trying to say that actaually had a semi-relavence to the topic and you start bagging on him for it which os really weak.

    Its people like you that just amaze me.
     
  18. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    Most people on this site could learn something from Supraman such as djrobertsis, and Supraman has my up most respect simply because he makes sense and he doesnt bag on people.

    But as for me and my view on this car is that it was a concept and wasnt meant to be flawless. As for me I think its a beautiful car and the only reason most people rag on it is because they knew that if Ford did refine it and make it Flawless it would kill any and everything out there and they cant stand to see Ford on top of the domestic market and it would just kill them to see Ford also on top of the exotic sports car market as well. But hey thats just my take on it.
     
  19. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    If They refined this or made a newer version, i think it could possibly beat the Veyron. Maybe all the car companys of the world got together and decided that they would pay Ford to not build a production version cause it would be soo scary and everyone would bye a Ford.(probably never happened)

    And as for baggiing people, there is no point because most people dont listen to you when your like that, so i like to settle in a sensible and responsible manner.

  21. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    Mclaren no longer exists? Someone's gotta stop those F1 cars running around with "Mclaren" painted on them and tell them they're for a non-existant company!

    (sorry for the sarcasm, I just couldn't help it<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>. Mclaren is indeed still a company, and are doing great this season in F1)
     
  22. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    here is how i can do better than this car.
    1. ferrari enzo
    2. mclaren f1.
    3. ford gt40(looks wise)
    4. any other car on this world coz this thing doesnt #$%#in exist.
     
  23. Re: Why Diss This Car?????

    Also, usually when they say XX mph+, it means it was never really tested and it's just an estimate.
