Well, up to 150 mph. I think the Cerbera would be knocking it around after 60 mph or so... I think for my money, I'd rather have the Cerbera. Have you seen the interiors on them? Very nice.

Tell me more about fantastic cars my government won't let me have

My lugnut requires more torque than your LS1 makes.

The Cerbera would kick its ass on a straight line, pulling away after 60 or so, just as you said... get them on a track and the Noble handles much better.... which would win i dont really know... i suppose if its average drivers, the noble would win as the cerbera is tricky to handle.... get a pro in there and the 4.5 Cerbera will fly around any track

Stealth B6
8 cylinder
6.3l
510bhp@6500RPM
479lbft@5000RPM

it weighs less than a ton so power per weight ratio is a stunning 564bhp/ton, thats MORE than a McLaren F1... 0-60 is in 3.9, 0-100 in a smidge over 6s, and top speed somewhere over 180. i remember a few years ago someone tried to break the 0-100-0 record with this car (which is incidentally held by a Macca) and they came very close on the first run, if i recall the car wasnt actually finished, it was still under development... it's finished now, yours to buy at 90k

you're not gonna go for a cruise in this car, this is a fully fledged race car for the road... no luxuries, just pure brutish horsepower





cheers,
jay

Is it just me, or have most modern supercars started to look like the batmobile?

I've never driven a Cerbera, explain how they are tricky handling? I assume the combination of 2450 lbs and 450 hp free revving V8 would make driving... interesting to say the least. My current car is a 924, with big tires, good suspension, and 150 hp, so I am learning very quickly about the proper line to take

Precisely. Add 0 electronics and no ABS and you have an even wilder car to drive. No offence, but 388bhp/ton is a massive step from a 150bhp car so i would take it very easy at first

and yeah, the interiors are very nice indeed

Yeah, 150 to 450 hp... By the time I am close to finished with this 924, it'll make 300hp, 330 ftlbs... It's getting a 5 cylinder from a S4, and then getting tweaked with a new turbo, a good chip. It's also going on a diet, I am getting a nice set of sport seats, ripping out the back seats, and replacing all the panels with fiberglass, the windshield and hatch get replaced with Lexan... It should be about 2100 lbs, with 230 hp and 260 hp for daily driving.

They sell LHD Cerberas in the rest of Europe, don't they? I was looking at an Italian dealership, and they said they could get TVRs...

Alas, I won' t have my Cerbera until I move to Italy... Then I will get to terrorize a few Ferraris on their home turf

The stealth is pretty wild, but it would be awesome to drive around in real life. And a lighter Porsche is a happy Porsche

I'd like to give the TVR Speed 12 a spin.. probably quite a few spins
Hmm, 2000 lbs... 800+ hp.. Doesn't that work out to about 800hp/ton?

I was looking through a Gran Turismo 2 guide, and noticed you could win a Speed 12... I went and got a playstation and GT2, and played until I won it. It wasn't easy, I was in one of the toughest races in an old skyline...

The thing is brutal! I managed to boost it up to around 900hp, and managed 1890 lbs.. Does the standing 1/4 in about 8 seconds..
