    Cause turbochargers are hard to drive. Good sportacar means "well-balanced", fast on straight but easy to drive (not like, for example, F40...)

  2. Re: Why not turbocharge this car?

    ALL the torque will come out in the very early rev range of
    a twin turbo engine,it's too early which will affect cornering
    stability if the car is light,just like the enzo.Naturally aspire engine has a better torque curve and higher red line.
     
  3. Re: Why not turbocharge this car?

    Exactly, the torque curve is more uniform and power is all in the higher-range RPM, which is where you're going to be driving most of the time.

    Does this look like a lamborghini to you? It should be left alone.
     
  5. Re: Why not turbocharge this car?

    Even the Lamborghini should be left alone. If anyone wants to turbocharge something, then do it with an Audi or VW or Citroen,... and not with works of art.

    If u want to turbo charge a Ferrari then there is no point of buying it.
     
  7. Re: Why not turbocharge this car?

    Well, besides the fact that there needs to be new Ferrari's occasionally, this car was meant to be the one that unseated the McLaren F1. Has it done that? (I'm honestly asking) If not, set the thing up with a turbo and blow the aging McLaren away. To the point about the rev ranges and torque curves, there are always gear settings.

    Or, what about nitrous? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  10. Re: Why not turbocharge this car?

    Nitrous would work but they are short powerful blasts, they could ruin the eninge and they also add wieght
