Have yo'l watched this amazing race between the Gallardo, Murcielago, M3CSL, NSX-R, 360 Modena and the 911 Turbo. i remember Rtech, mentioning something about a similar race in another post. Was this the one, RT?

Anyway, i just downloaded the video and boy was the NSX-R quick throught the corners. While the M3CSL, 911 Tubo and the 360 M were busy fighting it out, the NSX-R had bigger plans. It had it's eyes set on the big boys, the Gallardo and the Murcielago. Thought the NSX's 290 horses stood no chance against the 2 Lambos', in a straight line, it was in the corners that this light weight, "made for the track" car held it's own.

I know it makes no sense racing Lambos' against a NSX but, it's really amazing, how a good handling car can easily make up for that lack of outright power. Ditto for the Lotus Elise (Another awesome handler, probably the best in the world).

Can you image these cars with 400-500bhp?

For all those, who haven't watched this video yet, here's your chance. * *

I don't know Shantanu, that's what the site said, where i downloaded it from. I guess it portrayed the M5 to be too fast a car (not that it's not!), promoting accidental tendencies. You got to see the video!

Hey Phead,

Actually thats a 355 with the 355 challenge exhaust. Its a lot more coarse sounding than the shreiking tubis. ok vid.

The Viper SRT10 video is awesome!. its 12mb, 9mins, but really funny top gear style.

Hey Rehaan, do you think JC actually wrote VIPER with the car? Or is it a CGI or maybe someone else did it.

Hey Shan,

I was wondering the same thing.
Honestly, i think its a bit of both. CG + driving.

As you can see he starts the "V" for real.
Its the curves on the P & R that im suspicious about. Maybe those were just CG'd in. (look how perfect the P is)

Ok for all you offroading freaks, check out this Top Gear test of the Land Rover. Awesome vid of a LR climbing a 1000 + ft mountain in Scotland. Jeremy made a mess of it by getting it stuck twice but it finally managed to make it to the top, "where no other car has been before".

Land Rover part 1

Land Rover part 2

Yeah, my bad. The site said 355 with Tubis, i realised it had Challenge exhaust when i actually saw the vid. Still a glorious sound.

Watch Mika Hakkinen drive the Mclaren F1. He also drives the F40 and the EB110.

Best part of the vid is when he's driving the Mcalren F1, he says to the camera "Can you hear the Turbo Whistling". LOL

And Peter Solberg tackles the tight twisty touge track in Japan (in a road Subaru first and then in his championship winning WRC car.
