F1 LM without any hesitation. Upon thinking about it, I choose the F1 LM.

Any reason why? I would be tied between the C12-s and the F1LM. The Mclaren might be superior in performance, but not by much and the Pagani I think is what pops into my mind when you think of Supercars. Supercar = Zonda

but the next choice would be supercar = McLaren F1 :p

Well, my initial choice is because I think...
Supercar=Zonda, but ULTIMATE DRIVING machine=McLaren. It is the definitive supercar...No, it is more than a supercar. It is the ultimate in performance.

Then, I think...
Well, it's not that much better performing than the others, and the CC even claims better stats (although I haven't seen any definite tests confirming them) but the F1 is legendary. It's awesome. It is gorgeous as well as blindingly fast. It's my generation's Shelby Cobra AC. It's the car that no matter what argument anyone poses, they won't be able to change my mind. It's because it has been for so long the car that I'm now forever, completely biased and in awe. I love it.

No comparision: McLaren F1 Lm.
In my supercar, I want something special, like an $18000 muffler, 50 grand of gold on the engine, arrow-head seating posiition, amazing in every regard.
Teh others just don't cut it. (well they do, but not as well as the McLaren):D

i hope you are joking!! :) The McLaren LM...without a doubt...fastest of the group....it is just bad ass!!

actually the lm is quite a bit faster then the other cars in this group...check out a 0-150-0 time on it ...it's amazing. The McLaren LM is pretty much the fastest, almost street legal, track, road driveable car you can buy. I don't see how this is even a question..unless you just think the other cars are nicer to look at...which is kind of a lame reason to pick one super car over the other.

Actually, teh LM is slower than the 'regular' F1, due to aerodynamic considerations. It is faster accelerating, has more power, and less weight. More of a track car than a road car. ANd only 5 in existence (all orange)

top speed?? sure, but who cares when you are going upwards of 200 which it will still do. the first year they took on lemans they finished 1-3-4-6-7 i think...and the LM that you can get...is the exact same car that took lemans by storm. i saw one for sale on the internet a while ago...one of the lemans cars itself.

The orange is cool looking..it's my desktop at home.

Adam
05-30-2001, 04:44 PM
yeah.. once your above 200 mph it just doesn't matter...

and plus the LM looks better than the regular



I would still take the zonda for looks... once you get below 4 seconds to 60 mph and above 200 mph, which the Zonda and McLaren both do, you don't care about anything better, so i'd take the Zonda based on looks

the LM will not go under just 4...it will make 0-60 under 3!! that is a huge difference....looks...that bubble eyed, with the brown eye in the back thing....you think looks better the LM?? well, everyone has the right to their opinion...... :frog:

first off...you are wrong!! :) with that said..i'm talking about spening over a million.... i want power and performance...even if the S7 actually looked better, which it doesn't (never seen a car with more scoops and crap..looks like a riced nsx or something:)), I would still much rather have the LM! the S7 uses some kind of ford V8 or some crap....super car...jeez... :)

The LM's you can buy are BETTER than the LeMans ones. They removed teh limiters, so they got more power. They are different than the racing versions in no other way. Whcih is good:D

And the S7 uses a lowly Ford V8 (with about 550 hp). It has 64 scoops on it.

And the McLaren would have way better acceleration than the Pagani. Here is a pic o fthe McLaren:

I'll forget the looks thing, because looks are subjective. (I think the S7 looks better)

But oh my god, I thought this board was free of such ignorance as to call the Ford V8 shit and lowly. Just what is shit about it? Explain.

Its a fantastic engine. All the power and torque you could ever want, plus its more reliable than the engines these other cars are running. The sound alone makes it a great engine.

dude i got nothing against ford V8's but to put it in the same league as the BMW M Power V12, with over 650HP, almost 8k redline....come one. We are talking about apples and oranges here. That ford V8 would be awesome in the Mustang Cobra R or something like that, but a supercar...no way. I want a V10, or V12, light weight, high revving, insane-o HP engine. Besides the v12 in the McLaren has way more then enough torque...it is a non-issue.

More reliable....i seriously doubt it. The McLaren engine isn't no honda 4 banger, but it is fairly reliable for what it is...and really who cares about reliablility here...we are talking about supercars...if you afford a car with gold plating covering the engine...like you are gonna care if you have to fix your motor once in a while!! :)

So basically the things that make the Ford engine unworthy are in your mind.

You'll be suprised how light the Ford engine is. It is all aluminum after all. 8 cylinders is enough.

You also talk like the Ford engine isn't powerful. The only reason why it isn't more powerful is that Saleen have built it that way. You can buy a 427 Ford with 750hp.

The engine has a 7000rpm redline, not that redlines mean anything in the real world.

The BMW engine in the McLaren is in no way better than the 427 Ford.

i like the 427....but i have yet to see any car with a 427 that can do what the McLaren can do...and if they are the just as good...why didn't mclaren use a the 427... HP is not the end all of the game...the engine in the McLaren is perfectly tuned for that car...it was designed with that car in mind. they just did not take some crate engine, build it...and then shove it into a light weight shell (the S7). The entire car was build around that engine. You can make 800+ Hp our of a chevy 350...my friend has one on his drag mustang...he put a 350 from chevy into, bored it out, built it...for about 20k...thing runs 8 sec 1/4 miles...cool, but I would take the McLaren any day...engineering is much more then just slamming a big engine in a light body...and calling it good.

The Mclaren Lm took everyone at LeMans...first time it ever ran. Every car finished the 24 hour race..all in the top 7...no one has ever or most likely will ever repeat that.

Chris
05-31-2001, 03:35 PM
I agree entirely. A supercar is more than a crate engine in a fast car. The S7 may be fast, powerful, and balanced. But for my money, I want something exotic. And McLarens have been wrung out repeatedly without breaking, as is the nature of endurance racing.
In no way am I critisizin gcrate engines or the S7's performance. It's just that 427's are a dime a dozen, and McLAren V12's are perfect for the car. It is the ultimate in engineering. And thats that:)

05-31-2001, 03:44 PM
Like I said, its all in the mind. :)

I'm not sure but I think the 427 used in the S7 isn't just a straight crate motor implant. They did there own work to it.

I'm sure someone has built a 427 powered car that can beat a McLaren on the track. It got pretty poor road holding marks on the skid pan. Yes, I know theres more to a car than numbers.

The Ford GT40 could beat anything in its day.

Chris
05-31-2001, 03:58 PM
True, GT 40's were invinciable, and Saleen re-works the engines. And the McLaren skip-pad numbers are, er, can't find it now. Will try and post it later.

well, its day has passed. and the mclaren lm will make S7 look like a chump on a road course..plain and simple. I don't care if the engine "could" have this much HP, or the chassis "could" be take this much stress. The proof is in the numbers and no road going car on the planet is faster all around the the McLaren F1 Lm. And i'm sure saleen did work on the engine..that is not what i meant...the engine in mclaren was designed from the ground up to work with the dynamics of the Mclaren. The 427 in the S7 wasn't. A good road car is a balance of power and engineering....you cannot just add more HP and expect it to be faster. or just give it concrete suspension...it maybe faster in so regards, but overall will be inferior.

I wish someone would get an LM and S7 on nurburgring (sp?)....this would put to rest all this speculation!! :)

skid pad?? jeez, so it wouldn't be a good auto-x er!! :)

You got it right. ;) You can't just take a trip to BMW and ask to purchuse the M S70/2 engine specifically designed for McLaren Car's F1 line. It was, like ZO6Lover (who isn't a ZO6 lover lol) said, "designed from the ground up to work with the dynamics of the Mclaren." You can get a 427 though. :)

The McLarens day has passed. I proved my point though.

A car isn't necessarily inferior, just because its engine (or any other part) wasn't made exclusively for the car. It might not be a million dollar supercar but it might be able to beat one.
That isn't my point though. My point is that the 427 Ford isn't shit or lowly.

Oh, and there are plenty of road going cars that will beat a McLaren.

hahaah...how can the mclaren LM's day have passed if no factory car made can beat it on a road course? Nothing from Porsche, ferrari, anything from japan or america!! and don't give me some crap about a modified viper..blah blah..i'm talking about factory cars..the mc laren f1 even in stock form, not the lm, is faster on a road course then any factory car available.

beat in what?? what do you mean by beat? straight line? pull more g's? sure...so what ... i would like to find a road going car, from a factory..of any kind, that can beat a mclaren lm around nurburgring?? name one!! just one!! and the S7 would not even get close...the lm weighs 2300lbs with over 650 HP.

there is nothing wrong with the 427, but if i had the money...no way would i pick that over the bmw engine in the mclaren...it isn't even an option. I would love the 427 in the S7 in a car, because i could probably afford it, but if money is no option..give me the v12 m power engine anyday. I think a single drive in an LM would change your mind. I have a video of a guy driving the McLaren at speed....if you want i can give it to you...it isn't even an LM..it's a big download though.

better cornering?? why cuz its skid pad was better...jeez... whatever..this is getting out of hand.

the lm does 0-60 in 2.9 secs, the s7 does 0-60 in 3.8...the 1/4 is not close...1 sec in the 1/4 is 10 car lenghts!!! besides you are looking at skid pad numbers of the standard f1, not even the LM!! the lM has a huge functional wing on it!! It probably pulls over a G....one look at it's 0-150-0 time...

i'm done with this thread. the s7 is a fine car costing 1/4 of the LM. I would take the carrera gt over s7 any day...and the lm over a carrera gt...i was talking about production cars, the whole time...if a car is street legal, it maybe faster in one area then the lm, but it won't be able to dominate it in all areas....

The s2000 will corner just as hard....just not accelerate as hard. Motor trend go there second fastest slalom speed and time ever with a production car in the S2000 at over 70 mph. The only car to beat it: Viper ACR at 71mph.

I love driving twisties...so for 16k less...the s2000 was the car for me!! :)

you have never driven either the S2000 or Z06..i'm sure. I have .... you might read about numbers and say Oh the Z06 is sooo much better, even though numbers say it is only faster in a straight line...which it seems is what matters to you...since you kept talking about the lm's 1/4 times. the performance difference between the Z06 and S2000 isn't as much as you would think when you actually drive them...very different cars, but try to accomplish the same thing. The S2000 has a much, much better feel through the steering wheel...another thing you can't know...since you have never driven either. If you just wanna look at numbers, and quote numbers all day...fine, but that in no way translates or the experience of driving a car. By the way the Z06 is a reliablity nightmare....if you think it's not ....you obviously haven't researched it...the burning oil thing....is only one example. My car already has 1800 miles in 3 weeks....a lot of Z06's barely see over that many miles in a year.

By the way....corvettes haven't been good for a long time. The C5's are great, the Z06 is great...mind a few issues (that will hopefully be cleared up in 2002 so maybe i will buy a 2002), but before that corvette's were hardly sports car (muscle cars maybe). Some of the very early corvettes were great...then a long time passed while corvettes IMO...sucked...the C4 was a pretty good car...ugly as hell and too expensive, but a decent car...especially the ZR1...but not until the C5 was the corvette reliable at all. An American auto manuf. doesn't even make the JD Power reliability top 10 even the top 15...i think..i can't remember exactly. Until, the corvette is closer to as reliable as my S2000 will be..I"m not buying one. Maybe the C6...check out consumer reports on how reliable the corvette is....big black dot! Porsche, which as of now..only makes sports cars, was in the top 5 on the reliability list...so don't say...sports cars will never be as reliable.

This thread is out of control. I have no issues with the corvette or the S7, but with money not being an issue...there are better options. But, for the money the C5 and the Z06 are great cars...as far as bang for buck...i would say the S2000 and Z06 are pretty much tied.

My S2000 will do 0-60 in 5.3,1/4 in 13.8-14.2, top speed of 158, and slalom at over 64-70 mph.
The Z06 will do 0-60 in 4.1, 1/4 12.4-12.8, top speed 171, and slalom at 63-66 mph.
S2000 = 32.345k
Z06 = 48k

which is a better deal?? i don't know..i saved 16k..maybe my next car. check out the resale value of the S2000 also...on autotrader or something..pretty amazing..search for used ones. The z06 has good resale too. Gas mileage is pretty close..but i do get about 32-35 mph on the freeway...the Z06 won't quite get that, but it's close enough...and the S2000 has to have premium...which sux!! :( And reliability totally goes to the S2000...even if the Z06 is more reliable then old corvettes...which it is...that's not impressive..the old ones sucked big time.... my friends dad had one..piece of crap.

Obviously you prefer american cars..i prefer the better car!! In this case the S2000 was the better car for me..after waying the options..i'm not saying it is a better car overall.

lolol


conceptcars not good


60 mph form 0: 4.0 seconds for the zonda? i should say not!!

0 - 62 in 3.7 seconds... wouldn't 0 - 60 be less, not more...lol

the zonda and the S7 have same top speed, similar if not same acceleration, and exact same weight.. it comes to looks for those two

a dream is not a Z06.....i have been a porsche fan for my whole life. the carrera gt is more of a dream then a Z06...a 2002 Z06 or C6 in 2004 it a possible reality....a McLaren f1 Lm...now that is a dream...

to me the Z06 was just not worth the ext 350/month over the price of the S2000...i'll just leave it at that...when it is your money...you make the right choice for you!! :)

you guys should be comparing Zonda, S7, Diablo and the carrera Gt..that would be a close comparison
Carrera Gt, 2400lb, 560hp, V10, 8 capliper brakes...no real stats..all porsche will say is under 4 0-60, over 200 mph top speed..only available in a roadster.

lol I posted some numbers that show the McLaren isn't as supirior as you say. I realise that numbers aren't the whole story but my point was to show that a 427 isn't shit or lowly.

The Z06 hasn't been out long enough to start saying how many miles they do per year.

Corvettres are an icon, a legend. You might go off saying they're shit or whatever but I'll just laugh at you.

i could care less if you laugh at me...old corvettes for a long time were shit. there records as far as reliablity and any thing else other then straight line are shit. nothing you posted said the LM was in any way worse the S7...you were quoting numbers of the F1, not the LM....I never said the 427 or the S7 are lowly...jeeez...what crawled up you ass??

actually i routinely talk to people who drive Z06's on the the z06 message board. most of them by the time they have 1900 miles..which is what i have on my car, are burning 1-2 quarts per 1000miles (1 quart per 1000 miles is what chevy says is norma....that's pathetic.). A guy on there wanted to sell me his..cuz he bought an S2000...he was the one who told me to check them out!!

Look, it is obvious you have never owned a real performance car..and are just going by numbers you have read in magazines... get some money....buy a Z06 or whatever..and be happy with what you got..but stop quoting me numbers of cars you have never and will never drive. You will most likely never own an S7..nor will i own a LM, but if I had a choice ...LM all the way, carrera GT over S7...my choice...that is the way it is.... nothing wrong with the S7, but for 350k....no way....other cars i would rather have.

When I get my Z06, C6, or Porsche 911..i'm sure i will be happy with it, but for now..the S2000 is a perfect car for me...and it's a convertible...which i thought i would never want...but it's actually very cool. that is one very impressive thing about it...it can pull .95 g's on skidpad and run over 70+ in slalom...and it's a convertible!! pretty impressive....ya gotta admit...the x-frame construction...is very cool.
