Not only does the Noble accelarate beautifully, it also handles like a race car. If you haven't seen it, watch Tiff's video about it.

As for the ME- Four Twelve, I am exited to see what it can actually do, but I have my doubts. One it comes from Chrylser, and though this is a totally unfair bias, I have only seen one succesful super car come from a large american company, and that was because it mimicked the LM racer of the 60's, it wasn't a totally new car in any respect (I think we all know what I'm talking about). Two, even if it does achieve all the acceleration that it claims, I still am somewhat reserved as to how it will handle. Remember, a car that go fast in a straight line but cannot turn is not only shit but wholly unsafe.

Don't get me wrong, I;m pulling for Chrysler to come off HUGE in this sector, I just am not placing any bets on it yet.

Gentleman,

Postpone this nonsense utter of impossible virtue of the best.

The very essence of physical is to be made of compromise.

No drive is perfect, but you are speaking of rather high quantitative levels of quality like Koenigsegg, Zonda, Enzo…

With all respects to Enzo (FX),
http://www.autodrome-cannes.com/ this site will give you enough data from real owners of the both cars,and dealer which claim Zonda is clearly a better car (obviously).

So proper relation is Zonda or Koenigsegg?

http://www.polarisuk.com/video/auto/Koenigsegg.wmv

This will give you all the answers you need!!!

Quality is excellent considering there are too many trash quality movies from the same car.

Uhh... I would be very hesitant to trust that comparison fully as proof of a Pagani superiority. With a match up that close, I would expect a more balanced supply of quotes from owners. As is, all are pro-Pagani, and the way the title is worded (reconfirming) indicates an inate bias.

As for the Koenigsegg video, first of all, though it was faster than the Pagani straightline, it was slower around a track. I wait eagerly for TG to do a Stig review of the Enzo, but until then, I think the Enzo is the better car of the three.

Again, I don't trust the legitimacy of that comparison. I could show a lot of things if I had the right quotes.

Hahaha moslerporschefreak,

Exactly response I expected to gain.

I just love to invoke such reaction from people who are debating which one is bigger.

Relax , I couldn't care less which one is better, I would give them all 3 for free to you just for one 111s Elise.

Car that makes such attention to owner (Enzo,Pagani,Koenigsegg?), is really a not a sense of freedom and I couldn't care less.
PS: But you can't Deny this great Koenigsegg's Top Gear video.

Haha. Don't take me wrong, I'm not wound tight about the enzo, I just like it. Anyways, if I were to own one of these cars, I'd say to hell with resell value and drive the thing into yesteryear. I despise the people who buy these cars and let them sit in a room for 20 years. FUBAR

Also, know anything more about Benny Caiola? Some people on the Enzo forum would like to know more about his cars.
