Short indeed, but a Power packed list. Was the Murcielago the LP or pre LP version ?

And, this is the 2nd time i'm correcting someone in the same thread for the same flaw. Was that a 730Ld or a 740Li ?

It was the LP640. And yes, 730Ld.

Have you driven these cars or been driven in? I would love to know about your experience in Zenvo ST1. How does it feels to have 1100+ horses under the surge of your right foot?

The best part of the st1 is that is has a knob with which you can actually regulate the amount of power the engine generates. so its very easy to drive and they said its simple for even a lady to drive it who could be a novice to race car driving. the Keating TKR and ultimate aeros were outright beasts. you need to keep your head on your shoulders all the time. these are not cars to mess around with or taken lightly. they give the same shove int he 6th gear as a lp670 in second! They deliver raw uncontrolled surge of power. The st1 though powerful has plenty of driver aid mechanisms so the drive is less savage. to be precise they all feel like a cruise missile on steroids capable of speeds in terms of light years as when you drive them everything around is a blur and it feels light is being bent into a vortex. kind of the same feeling portrayed in the movie speed racer during the track races. The brakes are razor sharp , enough to make you feel you going to puke your heart heart. the st1 is like a bond car with plenty of gadgetry and driver interactive interfaces. the other two are cars driven by intuition and sensory perceptions. their acceleration is so wicked, you feel kind of difficult to breath while you are pinned in the seat. the slightest nudge on the right pedal feels like a tone of bricks let loose on your chest. At any speed it seems there is always infinite more power left. they purely feel like a rocket burning a mix of hydrogen and nitrous oxide. simply explosive. The sounds of the engine is like something never heard before. simply adds to the intoxication. The drive left me dizzy and light headed. Was in kind of a trance for several minutes after I got off. kind of possessed. The roar of the engines still have an echoing eardrum bursting haunting howl in my mind, capable of being heard several kilometres away. Talking inside the car was virtually impossible. I dint even care to test the audio hi-fi. All three give you the feeling of transformers as the begin to become and extension of your mind and body while you drive them. The inputs to outputs are more responsive than a F22 Raptor or a Sukhoi 27. In top gear there is absolutely no delay in the difference of the distance the accelerator pedal is depressed and the final speed/rpm. In the manual versions one can begin from idle in 5th gear effortlessly! they are the closest you can get to a time warp machine. The theory of relativity is most enjoyable and exciting in these cars. Going super sonic with the next closest visible object over a few miles away from you is one thing. But doing 350kmph+ with visible surroundings 15-20 feet away from you is something in a different league all together. Cannot be expressed in words. need to experience to know what im talking.

The brakes are razor sharp, enough to make you feel your itnernal organs are going to get dislodged and loose before they come flying out of your mouth if left open to splat onto the windshield. It may help to wear a pressure suit to cope with the extreme g-forces. Scary enough to make your hair stand up right from the time you fire the engine up. They have a mean aura about them with a menacing roar. You instantly know their aggression needs a different calibre of mettle to be harnessed. They seem so focused, pure and unadulterated. Their sole aim seems to thrill with everything synced in harmony.

@Scorcher- thanks. hihihi. Silent montages of the environment viewed as a blur from the cars cockpit occupied my mind. keeping me silently dazed in a trance all by myself in my own world and memories and shell for several days after the massacre. Felt like being locked in a room and left alone with every nano second spent. recalling them in slow motion in my mind was each split second relived and as enjoyable.
