I'll write the check for one any day. I just need someone to figure out how to make that check good.

Crazy top gear time - did they have a new Stig? Tough to believe it trounced everything so handily.

^720hp and 740 ft/lbs of torque pushing around only a little over 3,000lbs will do that .

It definitely seemed more composed than many of the hipo cars that have graced that track in the past.

Has cheap looking trailer style round tail lights. Not Camaro/C7 Corvette-styled tail lights. Not enough black vents all over the body. Style fail.
Yeah right. The attention to detail on this car is unreal! Rather rock this than a Veyron if I could afford either. Or both. As great as this car is, can't wait to see how insane a future R-version of this car can be.

I knew this car would be fast but holly hell it blew the doors off everything on the top gear board. And then you think about what is on that board and it makes that much more amazing.

The only question now is can the Maclaren P1 beat it.




And can Maclaren build one in time for top gear to test it this season!

Sheesh, I had accepted that this car was a masterpiece of detailed engineering and aesthetic perfection with a lot of power and technology, but I never imagined that it would be able to put that kind of time down. I was truly impressed as I figured with all of the attention focused on matching carbon fiber weaves and milling aluminum pieces for appearance, it would be another fast car but having its real draw be the look and detail. The fact that the performance is that much above the rest in a car that isn't a shoddy, bar bones, stripped race car for the street more than justifies the pricetag I could never afford.

It's still not a great looking supercar (although I'd fap if I saw one IRL), but my respect has gone up immensely after seeing what it can do beyond be a technical, detail laden work of art.

You know, that makes me think about what the owners would think if they saw me doing it. I don't know how anyone could own a supercar, park it and walk away from it. I couldn't let it leave my sights and it would constantly worry me and give me anxiety wherever I was. Then again, I'm an over-anxious worrisome nut, so there's that. But still...

Sounds like the Prius, the Auto transmission, and Government Safety Standards Boards are going to have a banner year in 2013 seeing as their primary antagonist decided to curl up into his hidey hole.
