I'm sure some of you are top gear fans...

Damn the Veyron is badass
1000 hp
0-60 is like 2.5 and they throttle the top speed to 253 :drool:

Yeah the VW owned Veyron is awesome. It is pretty much a pair of VR6 engnes put together in a V shape like a V-12 then given 4 turbo chargers and put on crack.

that's a badass car too but double the HP and torqe and you have the veyron. I think they said it cost like 5mil to make one but they sell em for 1.2mil and they made them just to show that they could blow the doors off the current super car market. The only thing that's close is the Hennessey viper which actually beat it some categories.

Just think they veyron needs tires every 2500 miles which cost 10k and 10k to install and it needs new rims every 7500 at 62k. LOL that's some up keep.

There are so many more wicked cars today than just Ferrari's and Lambo's

actually just got done watching Top Gear. If I remember correctly the Pagani Zonda beat the Veyron around the track. But call me old fashioned, this is and probably always be my favorite "super car"

actually, it is vw's w12, the same as my w8 with a few more cylinders. the normally aspirated version powers the phaeton.

I am very close to 300bhp in mine, I can only imagine what boost and 4 more cylinders feels like.. I am sure, NOTHING like my wagon!

This car is the first and only BADASS car in my book. 0to 100 mph and back to 0 in less than 10 seconds. With the technology back then and they have only beat it with one or two other vehicles since then. If I could ever afford a $.5 million car I would try to find the Shelby Cobra that carol Shelby gave to Bill Cosby. That one is worth more than a half mill.

call me crazy :eek: Pure raw horsepower, yeah baby :bowdown:

- maybe im just too practical, but the Aerial Atom suits my bill just fine
- realistically available under 100k, titled as either a Chevy cobalt or a Honda Civic, (cheap insurance)
- parts available at any checker or Auto Zone, in stock
- better power to weight ratio than a veyron
- better handling than... anything pictured above...
- sub 3 second 0-60 time in a mass produced commercial 4 banger
- Turbo or Supercharged versions available
- if you really want to spend $160k or more, a 500hp V8 version is available weighing in at 1200# wet... that shames the veryron, zonda, koniggalphabet, etc etc etc.

another one many may not have heard of is the Iceni Trident..

a European super car powered by a GM 6.6litre Duramax Diesel.."only" making 550hp and 950# of torque, this thing runs sub 4 second 0-60 times and is regulated at 200mph... runs on bio diesel, and can get 70mpg (according to the manufacturer)

*68.9mph at a constant 70mph was the first recorded test at Millbrook Proving Ground. The figure naturally improve at lower speeds at 30mph, Trident's initial tests returned 108mpg. This is yet to be confirmed but they don't believe in quoting a figure for 30mph as this is unrealistic unless you drive exclusively in a city.

The Iceni is a traditional grand tourer. With a full tank of diesel, you can expect to travel around 2000 miles without needing to fill up.

The boot has space for luggage and golf clubs enough for a two week holiday.

The chassis is made from stainless steel and is guaranteed against corrosion for 100 years and the body is made from composite and can therefore never rust or degrade.

I like the Nissan GTR. Especially when you consider the cost and it's only a sports car that is a supercar killer. I love it.

Oh man, I had one of those pull up beind me in Atlanta last year and I didn't know what it was, I let it pass me just so I could get a look. At first I thought it was a tricked out rice racer, but when it passed by you could tell it was a MUCH nicer build... and the sound... Oh my! :D

Good taste, after that 959 ran in the Dekar and beat EVERYTHING, they had to change the rules... I love it! :D

that's the story of porsche's life. they come to the series, beat everyone, and the governing body changes the rules to exclude them. It's happened in GT and GT-prototype, endurance, world rallye, the list goes on.. and people wonder why they stay out of formula 1...
