Its a mix of the 360 somewhat with the cayman from the side, but still looks nice in my opinion..

the specs dont seem right..the thing is super light and has 500 hp, should be performing better than stated..may be they just didnt have any competent drivers there...cuz with 2450lb and 500 hp it should be well around 0-60 in 3secs 0-100 in around 7 or less...

I would like to see this beast on the ring man...and see some braking dist tests..also 0-150mph...

nice stuff...what did JC has to say about it?

Absolutely. Because my friend was telling me about the Ascari he saw in the latest top gear video, and I exclaimed to him how I've known about it since early 2002. K-Z1R...new.

The lap test is the Top Gear Lap Time Board.
Above means it was just 0.2 seconds faster than the McMerc SLR.

Very undecided styling, but good performance I guess.
