  1. why are ferrari bringin out an F60 that only does 205 on the clock, they should push it to 250 at least

    you're a goose. I suppose you're talking about the corvette callaway sledgehammer which did 410km/h. Well, that was a one off car. if you whacked the boost from 7 psi on an 800TT henessey to about 20psi you would get over 250mph. But who's going to use that speed anyway?
    it's as useless as tits on a bull.

    the McLaren is the fastest roadgoing car ever-no questions asked. But who is ever going to use that kind of speed? Unless you're driving a mcLaren in the LeMans, it's totally pointless. that's why no cars really go that fast-you're average bob crackhead will never get it going fast. It is easily possible to beat the McLaren, it's just that no one wants to waste the money on speed that no one will ever use.

    the corvette is tuned and fullcharged,how about tuning a mclaren.god knows where it will go.

    The McLaren F1 is the fastest PRODUCTION CAR, not the fastest street-legal car. There's a difference...<!-- Signature -->

    It's not the fastest any more. The new Buggati's are faster. So there. Everyone compares cars to the Mclaren because they're the only car that people know and they're really expensive and exclusive.

    you can not say that you can not say corvette did beat mclarean
    and if you want to compare them , both cars should be standard with no modification , you can modify a HONDA CIVIC that can beat the hell out of the corvette . <!-- Signature -->

    Stock vs. stock?? Thats bullshit. Its all about winning. You don't even own a GT yet act like some 16 year old kid. If a Civic is street legal and beat a Lambo on a road course, that particular Civic IS better than the Lambo....unless of course, you are more interested in www.showcaritsaboutthematerialsthatmakeupthecarnothowfastitis.net

    Perhaps as a road car, but you must remember there are specialities like the WRX and rally...a place where the F1 stands no chance.

    the mclaren is the fastest production car , the buggati's aren't in production its a concept and the production car probably wont be as fast<!-- Signature -->

    Man, comparing a McLaren against everything is as bad as dickhead import lovers saying that the R34 can beat nearly every car on this site!I always see a R34 Skyline GTR vs. * at nearly EVERY American car forum!The only reasonable cars to ever come from Japan would be a NSX, RX-7, EVO 6, WRX, Some supras or a Silvia, nearly all of the others are boring shitboxes, or you just see too much of them all the time everywhere everytime!Back to the car this forum is on, this Diablo is sick, i would much rather cruise around in this then a shit house McLaren F1(i say Shit-house because it's just yet ANOTHER supercar)not that we have enoug of those things around :p :(<!-- Signature -->
