World top speed competition?

Discussion in 'European Cars' started by srsocx, Oct 8, 2006.

  1. At Ehra Lessien in May 07. Who's running it, who's measuring the speeds, and who's participating? I assume Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Saleen, SSC ( <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> ), and Brabus are going to particpate...but will a Zonda F be entered? I'm thinking Axel might know some things here.
  2. Wicked. That would be an awesome place to pimp cars from people.
  3. why would a Zonda F be entered?
  4. Zonda doesn't stand a chance. Evo couldn't make an S break 200 mph.
  5. No shit, I just wanted to see if a third party would enter it, becuase Pagani doesn't give a shit about top speed. I just want to see if it can crack 220.
  6. I think Hennessey would be in there as well.
  7. I'd want to see

    S7 TT
    Hennessy Viper Venom 1000

    Dauer might be neat to see too.

  9. what is Brabus going to participate in?

    Barabus maybe?
  10. Acutally the Zonda can break 200 mph, the Zonda that EVO had was using shorter gearing (specified like so). The Zonda that ran around the Nurburgring, #18, was clocked at 208 mph by Sport Auto. The 214 mph claim is very reasonable for the Zonda F.
  11. The Rocket

    Barabus will fall apart in the transport on the way to the track.
  12. i'd say it will do like 212 or so.
  13. 9ff will probably bring the twin turbocharged CGT

    and just for shits and giggles I would love to see the AMS Evo run in this, hahah
  14. The Rocket? It has already done 225 on Nardo, in the unlimited form, both speed limiter and torgue. On Ehra, which is flat, I would not be at all surprised if it cleared 230, if they can whiff a little more boost out of the turbos.

    The Barabus will never clear 200mph/320kph.
  15. Do you have a link, sox?
  16. No, but various people keep referencing it, and SSC is harping about how they're going to go 270mph at it FTW, so check out their site, should you feel like going blind.
  17. I just went to their site but couldn't find it... <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    Found this though and i know it's off topic <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>

    "The Ultimate Aero averaged an impressive 73.1 mph besting the former Road & Track slalom record holding Ferrari Enzo by 0.1 mph" -- Road & Track magazine"

    <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A> Good Job SSC!!

    I'd say it's clear SSC is serious about it's claims.
  18. Oh, no one has ever said their cars aren't fast, they're fast as hell, the newest one has a better hp/tonne number than the Cerbera Speed 12...accounting for the 12 having 960hp. They're just unoriginal, passionless cars, whose build quality is exceedingly questionable. They're slated to be tested by MT, Automobile, TG, etc., I'm sure they'll turn up some hella fast numbers.
  19. seriously, that's what i've been trying to say! Although id be damned if it hit 270, I will not discard it as a player yet. It seems like a very serious and capable car that's only real downfall thus far is it's styling.
  20. I think me, AA, and Z06nut are the only members to have believed from the beginning that they can perform...I just can't get over how #$%#ing ugly they are. I mean hell, it's a car with a 2750pound wet weight and damn near 1200hp, it's going to perform.
  21. the only thing SSC is lacking is a history. there is no reason to believe they have poor build quality. as far as lack of creativity? thats no way to judge a sports car... god damn the koenigsegg is five more kinds of ugly then an SSC
  22. I wasn't implying you didn't say they weren't fast..<A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    One thing i will say about Barabus, they can go Fu(k themselves, copying bastards <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A> Even if it's fast

    That's just my opinion though
  23. where is this... and can anyone go and will anyone be there for pictures?
  24. have you ever seen one in real life? The only "ugly" part of the car is the body colored panels in the interior...
  25. I will eat my own excrement if the Barabus tops 250. The only way it can even be imaginable is if it had JATO attached to it.
