Lools cool. See it from behind and it reminds you of the Diablo. Only iys a bit more curvy at the fron . Doors styling similar to Enzo and the specs are very interesting too. The videos will be worth downloading.

Cheers

782 BHP!! Shelby is really on a roll.

On another note, though the power outputs of super-cars are shooting skywards, and the cars themselves are getting lighter by the day...the 0-60mph timings are not going down significantly. Dont get me wrong, I think that a 3.11 second 0-60 is phenomenally fast, but manufacturers seem to be finding their limitations with traction at the launching (lesser wheelspin) period!

Yea dippy, i agree it reminds me of the Diablo too...

... as GTO rightly said, the problem with newer cars are not the fact that they are getting lighter therfore faster and more powerful.. its how they put the power down thru the wheels. If u see, the Veyron produces 987 horses and yet does 0-100 in 3.2. There is as much cars and IC engines can do and as much laws of Physics wud allow cars to go any faster. Frankly more HP and light weight is ok, u proved ur point that the car is fast... but does everyone really need to prove that point?

Its getting messier by the day.. the game of more horsepower. Its time manufacturers created the ultimate. A car thats really fast yet handles supremely well, has unmatched ride quality, great steering et all. Drag specials are now seeming too easy to create.. but perfect cars arent.

C'mon, theres no way an American car - however super it may be- can compare to the brilliance of Murray and his Mclaren.

The Mclaren F1 is still one of the most powerful cars ever produced. Eve the Bugatti Veyron couldnt match up to it.. It is the super car which sets standards for the rest. Ok lets not forget the Enzo as well... But the Mclaren was out way ahead of its time.. Boy those TG videos on the F1 are delicious
