Good effort, but judging by the suspension on that thing, Ferrari can rest easy.

Just a side notice:


Honda managed to break the 400km/h barrier with their F1 car on a salt lake in America :)

As there was no grip at all, they had intermediate tires on the wheels, even beyond 300km/h the rear wheels were still spinning. They had to add 60kg of ballast to the front to make it possible to steer the car...

They used a special engine, which revved 18.200/min for 45 secs.....SICK!

Great effort, but one thing is to LOOK like an F1 car, and the other is to BE a real F1 car...

Awesome. Imagine walking around China and after months of seeing boxy old 80's VWs and crappy people carriers, you see an F1 car! :shock:

Get these guys jobs in the automobile industry, NOW! They definitely deserve it.

Well for me they made a car that looks like an F1 car. Thats nice, but it's still nowhere near an F1 car.

I wonder how long will it last before it needs to go in for repairs... yeah true, it is a good effort. another thing is that look at its rear tires. theyre pretty slim... if it needs to compete against world champions you need alot more grip than that.
