IIRC, that Mercedes was one of the last that attempted the land speed record on the Autoban, just before it was determined that they probably shouldn't do that since a lot of cars were being blown off the road, killing the drivers...

I wouldn't doubt that many of the manufacturers would accually go for something like a battle royale bewteen all the supercar makers: If each truly believes that their machine is the best then it would be in their best interest to compete - if they won, the profits would surely reflect.

It would be sorta llike the constructors wars in FIA racing...

i've heard rumours on the grapevine that TVR are planning to keep the original Speed 12 engine and put it in a modified Tuscan shell. I dont know how true that is, but it would be really good if it was! But, like the Speed 12 it probably wouldnt make it into production anyway.

Where did you get this information? From what I have heard, it's 0-60 in 3.5, oh, and the McLaren does 240 mph, not 200.

Im after a Cerbera, but a Tuscan R sounds nice...maybe a bit too expensive for me though i know theyre fast and they do sound great, but its reliability im worried about. my uncle had a chimeara and it was back in blackpool every other week cuz of technical problems. i would have asked him, but hes so pissed of with tvrs he would never say a good thing about them!
