Man Rtech, that article is even more confusing. They seem to be contradicting their own statements.

Once it's 0-60 in under 6.5 sec and top speed of 150mph, then it's looks (irrespective of performance), then it editor's privilege (irrespective of looks and performance).

When a website dedicated to supercars can't chalk down the things that make a supercar super, what else can you say.

F50 RULES !!!
F50 mate, YOU ARE SO RIGHT!!!!!!!!! I'm a fan of the F50 too, and even I get a little tensed up when poeple comment about the F50 like that.
What's wrong with it's looks?? In my opinion, Enzo looks MUCH UGLIER ( comparitively speaking, of course)

It is so extreme a car, no one has dared to mount the rear suspension on to the gearbox, or the engine structure directly on to the chassis bulkhead. This car screams swear words at practicality and comfort.
It might not be the fastest supercar, or hold any such accolades, but it offers a supremely different motoring experience that only the Porsche CGT seems to have got close to replicating today.
I literally WORSHIP that car, its a part of my soul.

i dont want to be in a rare car which is one of the ugliest in town... an f40 would do anyday....which is also not common!!

I used to sort of dislike the F50 as well when it first came out. It was mainly due to the press at that time who were lamblasting the F50.

Well, all that changed the day I came face to face with a blood red F50. In the flesh. It is one thing to see these cars in magazines, and another to actually hear and touch one. If any one of the so called F50 haters here can walk away after an experience like that and still not like the F50, there is something seriously wrong with them!

BTW, there was an F40 parked, no make that broken down, right next to the F50. Although looks are subjective, I would rate the F50 as a better looking car.

Finally some to echo my view about F50 and change in view after looking it in person.
It also goes for the Enzo haters if you see that car in person nothing will stop you to change your mind.

P.S Rtech this is the same day when you saw Mclaren F1 as well, rite.

Well, after posting I got back to looking at the photographs. I saw the Mclaren F1 along with the F40, 355 spyder, 355 challenge, 456 and the 911. The F50 was on another day. Made a mistake in my earlier post when I said it was the F50 and F40 together. The rest of it still stands though!

Ofcourse it's a race bred design but, it's not a track car. It's a perfectly normal road car which you can resgister, use on a daily basis and take it to the track when ever possible.

Really? Then how come there are people who think the F50 (which is a supercar) is ugly?

I ain't saying the Atom is beautiful but, it's not unacceptable either. People are buying it. Some days ago there was news that an Atom was bought by a guy in Blore, now which part of Blore has a race track?

If i had 29 K pounds to spend on a car like that, i'd buy it. Race track or no race track, i need one off those.
