Right now it's impossible to say what he finished car will be like. It is supposed to head toward the ultimate sports car, with luxury added on. It will probably be faster in a straight line, but handling may be compromised by weight. We'll just have to wait 1.5 years or so for a full test.

922 lbft at 2200?!?!?!? i. umm. wow. 2200? are you positive about that? it makes that much torque where it idles? good golly

It'll idle below 1 grand, probably. Yes, it does make that much power that low down. Its amazing. I've seen 0-60 times in Novembers C&D, whcih they estimate at 2.5 seconds, which is wholly reasonable. I suspect it could pull a sub-10 second quarter right out of the box. If you modded it a bit with NOS, slightly more boost, and lower gears, then a quarter in the 7's could be possible, and still be streat legal!!!!

Now thats what I'm talkin' about

From the pics in the Dec issue of MotorTrend I wouldn't call it an attractive car on the outside but it is stunning nevertheless. On the inside it is also stunning and with a 252 mph top speed and $800,000 pricetag, I am speechless. Innotech, you found this in March, great find!

Thats about 3 or 4 car lengths (3.6 vs. 3.2), so its pretty significant.

3 or four car lengths...who's caring, if you buy that car to actually race it you should be shot. I'm saying u show it off for an hour fill up the 3 extra seats with some hotties and roll back home for some TLC!!!

IMHO, if you buy the car and don't use it to its potential, you should be shot. Besides, if you have the money, do you want the fastest, most exotic car in the world, or do you want second fiddle?

And the 911 Turbo goes, what, 186mph, and the 16/4 goes 252! Try explaining that little difference!

Even if it goes 'only' 220, its still way faster.

sure its a V-16 but if it isnt its partner in bussiness is the lamborghini they got this new next gen Diablo and its called the Canto with 244 mph and 667 hp in a V-12 engine that is better then MCLAUREN F1 but the lambo rejected the Canto and r making something better to be there second car next to the MURCIELAGO however it will replace the unreplaceable diablo sad

Um, sorry, but the Canto project was cancelled, mainly due to crappy aerodynamics, plus Audi didn't like it.
The Murcielago is the best Lambo that they will make, they are making an introductory model, though, to compete with the 360.

Oh, and a Canto had difficulty maintaining 200, if it got that far, mainly due to said aerodynamics. And it had about 600hp.

YA THAT SUX

WELL I GUESS IN THE YEAR 2003 FERRARI WILL HAVE THE BEST ROAD CAR SINCE THEY GOT THE F-60 AND THE LAMBO WILL GET KICKED THE THE THIRD GREATEST V-12 NOT SECOND (BUT THE FERRARI MOVES FROM 3RD TO 1ST SINCE IT HITS 230 MPH) HOPEFULLY LAMBO WILL COME THROUGH ON THE YEAR 2003 IN STAY ONE STEP AHEAD OF FERRARI
OH YA BY DA WAY THIS IS MOE20 :smoker2:

Elsewhere, we had a rather heated debate as to which would be better, the Veyron, or the F60 (which will only hit about 200mph, because they are designing the aerodynamics to make it super-stable, not super top speed, kinda like an F1 car).

the 1001 horsepower rating is according to the european calculations... it's 987 according to the u.s.'s... and at 922lb ft o torque at 2,200 rpm... don't you think it would do 0-60 in a little less than 2.5 seconds? that venom does it in 2.4... i would say more like a 1.8 to 2.1 second 0-60 time... and realize... handling and acceleration are always more fun than speed... anyone know of the drag specs on it? if they're low i would suspect a speed top of 270... at least... jsut think of how fast a cart car can go... and then look at how much drag it creates with it's spoilers... well, with about the same horspower and torque... don't you think it's top speed would be a little higher than eveeryone elses? and can speed and acceleration limit street legality? or is that just an idea of ya'lls? (sorry if i sound synical)
