Thats one expensive and overly complex way to get to a false 250 mph.

I'd rather have a Dauer.

There was a lot more wrong than just brakes... Like they never designed it with cfd, cad, or wind tunnels in mind.

That's hot looking, but A) I bet it still won't actually hit 250 and B) I'll still take a McLaren F1 for that kind of dough.

You think that's hot? Maybe in the black/red scheme but that get up in the pic is putrid.

I'd rock a F1 too. But I would love a Dauer since it actually does 250+ mph.

No No No. You got it all wrong. If it is not a Jag or Noble then it is not worth buying, even though those cars will last about as long as a Starbucks Frappacino in front of a Sorrority Girl.

About as good as all the earlier press saying "This car is amazing! It's unbelievable! I bet when I drive it, it'll do things no car I've ever driven before in my life could do!!!"

I'd like to see Clarkson review this beast. I can only imagine the ways he'd pick it apart.

I don't see how they can say it's the fastest production car since the first ones are just now rolling off the assembly line. Take one the factory doesn't know will be used for the record and THEN try it.
