why?
where's the evidence for 5:15 with swift?
if looking that way there is no evidence for 8:04 of a diablo gt.
also they must have had used the old references.
also do all the laptimes taken in nurburgring have an onboard video?
THE LAP TIMES DO NOT ORIGINATE WITHOUT ANY SOURCES OR ANY PERSON RECORDING IT.7:11 WAS A MANUFACTURER CLAIM.YOU SHOULD ASK MIKA HAKKINEN,MCLAREN,MATTI KYLLONEN (WHO SAID ABOUT IT IN A 1997 FORMULA 1 SEASON) ABOUT THAT.SEE 1990'S FORMULA ONE HIGHLIGHTS WITH MATTI KYLLONEN AS COMMENTATOR

I BET EVEN IF THERE WAS MIKA HAKKINEN VIDEO TODAY,YOU WOULD STILL SAY IT IS UNREALISTIC.


WHAT MORE REFERENCES DO YOU WANT?


AND WHERE DID YOU GET 0.7G FOR A ZONDA R?

IF SWIFT COULD DO IT IN 5:15 THEN THE RECORD LAP OF 6:11 SHOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN BROKEN WHICH IS STILL UNBEATEN BY LMP'S OF TODAY.
  30 minutes ago
None of those are actual evidence.

There's evidence on this website that someone can actually lap the Nurburgring in a record 5:15 in a Suzuki Swift provided that you are at the finish line ready to be slapped in the face.

Doesn't make it real.

f1 also did it in wet.the article itself clearly states that.
ccr did it in damp conditions not wet.
and again 7:11 was set in 1990's when nobody cared about lap times.
and video you posted was for f1 gtr(which is claimed to do 0-60mph in 2.1s on slicks) vs ccx i have seen that video a lot before.
i have seen a video of mika hakkinen testing mclaren f1 xp5 which is possibly removed from youtube.
it must have been xp5 which is rumored to do 7:11 and it was much faster than production f1 ever was.
xp5 can do 0-100mph in 6s while production does it in 6.3s,0-200kph xp5=7.8s production=9.4s.
there are references for 7:11 laptime in 11/96.here are they (references for 7:11 lap)

ARE THEY ENOUGH OR WANT SOME MORE REFERENCES?
AND REMEMBER XJ220 HELD RECORD FOR 3YRS (BEFORE F1)AT NURBURGRING,DID PEOPLE CARE ABOUT IT?
DID JOURNALIST SAY HOW GOOD IT WAS?
DID THEY JUMP AT EVERY CHANCE TO SHOW HOW GREAT IT WAS?
DID IT HAPPEN?
One think i can't understand is that during 1990's it was not hard to believe,but today people find it hard to believe.
And which site did say that zonda r pulls only 0.7g?

CCR did it in the wet you know?

who cares if YOU believe something happened. It still didn't happen, or else every effing journalist, record book, and holy Mclaren themselves would have been jumping at every chance to say how wonderful the F1, made in UK was.

But no.

heres the link for ccr speed around the ring

these are the speeds for mclaren f1 in mph
200,170,180,60,90,130,75,150,110,
170,70,140,90,40,150,100,60,120,50,60,110,90,130,70,150,110,120,70,140,80,90,80,75,90,75,80,130,140,120,
90,75,85
and these are the speeds for ccr(km/h)
313,143,166,267,102,250,162,113,98,247,166,89,114,109,194,222,96,135
and LOL it is circuit breaker article which made me believe the 7:11 lap by mika hakkinen,it has easily done 7:45 let alone by flemke at half throttle.
however here are the speeds at around same points for f1 and ccr.
f1 (mph) vs ccr(km/h)
200, vs 313
90, vs 143
110, vs 166
170, vs 267
70, vs 102
140, vs 250
100, vs 162
90, vs 113
70, vs 98
150, vs 247
110, vs 166
80, vs 114
75, vs 109
130, vs 194
140, vs 222
75, vs 96
85 vs 135
and don't tell f1 has not lapped around nurburgring even if no laps were released.from what i can see f1 will have around 6km/h more speed than ccr.
EVEN XJ220 (90'S TIRES)DID 7:46 I CAN'T SEE IT BEING ONLY SLIGHTLY FASTER THAN THAT

Normally a car trapping 107 mph in the eighthmile will do the 20.6-20.8km 'Ring in about 7:11-7:15, but also put its classic technology (i.e., 1990s technology) and 17" tires (17 inch?!! Many modern luxury cars wear 18's or 19's) into this aspect....It can't really do 7:11, but more like 7:35-7:40.

An R35 NISMO on the other hand sprints through an eighthmile at a 104 mph trap, yet it does 7:08 at the 'Ring. That's because....two fourth-grade-level words: newest stuff.

and 0.86g was done by a cuustomer car whose condition cannot be guaranteed they stated that it understeered heavily and tires were probably not in good condition.to road legalise in america they add ballast(140kg) remove ground effects,remove 2 seats,etc.this is the link and read it fully

zonda r on pirelli p zero tyres can pull around 1.68g it got 6:47 on nurburgring with that.and on slicks it can pull 2+g on skidpad.and isn't it a race car.with slick tires zonda r(gt1) would kill a gt3 car.
and laptimes i posted for f1 gtr was not only for lemans it was also for anderstorp,jarama,zhuhai which is also a downforce circuit and f1 gtr was faster on all the courses.
  1 day ago
Yeah, everything on the Internet is real as long as it suits your argument.

I've seen a car site that said the Zonda Revolution have a maximum lateral 0.7g

When in fact that's the lateral force limit before it closes its wing. Just cuz that effing site said 0.7 doesn't make the car's performance only that.

this video shows how much luggage can an f1 carry and please watch full video.even with that you don't believe f1 can carry luggages,i can't do anything.

if you mean i am ash assholela then i am not.i have not even posted a single video i have only seen them.
and tell me any other supercar which can carry luggages(as much space as ford fiesta),fit 3 people,as practical(not comfortable) as f1.
clk gtr is barely road legal and is a race car for the road,so it won't have have problem in doing sub 7 if enzo can do it in mid 7's

i know that its braking is bad.
but skidpad was not mentioned.
Handling'l
You wont find a finer supercar chassis in the world.
i didn't mean to say 1.2 g was from autocar,it is from wiki.i only wanted to say that they praised its handling.
  2 days ago
Lol One of your statements is (bleep)ing bullshit! Autocar's McF1 review has absolutely NO mention of the 1.2g number. Trust me, I've read through that entire article.

Car and Driver/Autocar has mention of the braking, though, which is a sloppy 162 ft, which is about 0.89 g (in my opinion), i.e., about 0.03 g higher than the Ameritech model.
