Hater! :|

Now that's over with.

To the topic at hand.
Jeez that SLR Stirling Moss looks suhweet! But I have to say out of all those cars the Murci is the coolest. It just looks so freaking menacing. :eek:

The huuuuuge gap in the handling course between the AM V12 Vantage/Ford GT and the SLR/Audi R8 V10 has to be a joke, right?

I don't drive, I fly.
So, the Murci?lago SV not only sounds and looks homicidal, it was the fastest in every test?

That Stirling Moss thingie deserves praise for achieving all that without a roof or windshield.

Ford GT fuckyes. But why 5th and not 6th? Is there just not enough "go" in 6th, so that it actually loses speed?

Top Gear is an overdrive gear that is not meant for top speed runs.

no roof and windshield = lower car = less drag

The LP-670 SV delivers, it has the looks, the noise, the speed and the handling. BTW, for those close or in UK and with some GBP 400 to spare, you can drive one at the Thruxton race track (I've driven there a LP640 last year). I'm thinking to go for a drive in the spring :).

BTW, I'm quite surprised how good the Audi R8 V10 did in all test, pretty much 3rd place overall right after the much more powerful Murcielago and SLR-thingy.

I have some news on the GT-R (giggle)

Dass war der erste und einzige Spec-V Prototyp als Linkslenker den es gab. Genau zwischen Kilometer 6 und 7 hat es gekracht und Otto Hofmayer, der den Wagen gefahren ist, hat ihn die letzten 5,5 Kilometer rollen lassen und es exakt in die Box geschafft. Die K?hlwasser Temperatur war wohl deutlich dreistellig (114 Grad), mehr war als Fehler erst mal nicht zu sehen.

The Nardo Blew-Up was the only LHD Spec-V Prototype in existence. Between Kilometer 6 and 7 the engine blew up and the driver let it roll the last 5.5 km into the pits. Coolant Temperature was 114?C, other errors not directly viewable.
