Expecting the 1000bhp Lambo very eagerly, which is said to be the Veyron killer. Dunno why, but even after trying very hard to fall in love with the veyron, i hate it to the core. Would love to see anything that'll beat it, and the potential-veyron-killer coming from Lambo, jus makes it perfect for me!

They'l probably have the same engine in the Lambo too. The Veyron engine was first tested in a Lambo (Diablo i think).

Doesn't VW own both these companies?

I'd like to see someone else come up with a 1000bhp car.

Making a 1000bhp engine i not as diff as trying to find a way to transfer all that power onto the road....effectively.

As for me, i'l be happy to see some updates on the Honda HSC. After dropping the NSX, they really need to come up with a stonker.

There have been quite a few 100bhp cars, including a 1500bhp Formula car during the unregulated cars. The oil crises lead to such projects getting shelved in the polictically corrent scene, and now we are seeing the return of the supercars. Ferrari SXX is 800bhp, Lambo with 1000bhp is coming, and the skyline GTR was modded to produce 1000bhp etc.,

the Ferrari FXX - "Super Enzo" as they've nick-named it. 6.3l V12. 800bhp (798 net) @ 8500rpm with 506 lb-ft of torque.
the $2 million price tag includes a custom-built helmet, race suit, training, testing and full-factory support, but you still can't own one (even if you can afford one) as all 29 "concept" cars (no more to be built) have already been sold.
Ferrari is a little vague as to what this car is not for! its a track-only car not meant for racing - only for test purposes. street-illegal all over the world - doesn't even have turn indicators.
also known as the car Piero Lardi Ferrari almost crashed on its maiden run due to "cold tires".

has desire written allllll over it!!!!

The NSX successor has a V10 no? The new car Lotus may also get a V8. Eagerly awaiting the Bugatti complementing Lambo, if its coming in the first place. Also in the pipeline is Toyota's Supra successor.
