Yeah ma,, A car thats in production for 60+ years with great sales and reviews really does suck....

And really? your going to use that plastic excuse?... If you actually knew anything bout plastic you wouldnt sound so ignorant about its qualitys.

Corvettes aren't great. They a terrible, they are made out of plastic and they start to break down after a short time. THEY SUCK

The original Shelby not only went from 0-60 in 2.5 secs., it went from 0-100 and BACK TO 0 in under 11 secs. this car weighs about the same. Less weight needs less power to attain a given speed..that's why Corvettes are so awesome...

Sure it will, Just add 800Lbs of safety gear, Like big baby bumpers n what not, And limit its top speed to 35Mph and youll be all set.

@lafars Looks awesome, I wonder if it'll be US street-legal...

@Flabernat

And its successor is gonna be even more of a monster ( see caparo T1 evo teaser)


User avatar

Flabernat  3y  

Yeah agreed. It's probably just meant to be a track devouring monster! :)

@Flabernat: It must be geared more for acceleration than speed, most cars with that much power are capable of over 200 mph.


User avatar

Flabernat  3y  

Lol, Shaggy, yeah I can see that.

This car reminds me of an insect called a water strider.

I'm Italian and I need to say: Ferrari learn here what a hypercar is! Thisi is a good concept very near to a F1 car...The new La Ferrari is just the hole in the wother again! Return to F40 and F333 concept!!!

They never finished the original version...

It's like them saying, "we're going to build a new tallest building in the world!" But your last building collapsed before it was even finished...

soon there will be the caparo T1 evolution with 700hp and new aero


User avatar

A BMW S1000RR with driver is about 270kg and 190hp/83ftlb , can do a 1/4 mile in 9.57s, despite the BMW performance estimates about 10.3

With a driver, the T1 is around 650kg, with 575hp 311ft-lb should definitely be able to hit the 9s, just like the Ariel Atom V8. it's just gotta have the absolute perfect conditions of tire temp, weather, and road surface...

I mean if the Veyron SS can do a 9.9. and both the T1 and Atom can match the 0-60mph mark at 2.5s, there's no way they are slower than 10s to the 1/4, that is IF they got that 2.5 blitz start


User avatar

BR2+  3y  

I don't count any of those times, I haven't seen the TT times, but if there anything like the times here that were shown, Its unlikely.


User avatar

@BR2  3y  

All right, I agree, too sketchy. But what about the aero tt? I put the link on its page, it uses gps data.


User avatar

@Blas

Its just as dddd said, Those and all his runs are only based on Speedo runs, Not to mention ACTUAL video speedo runs, AutoCar was able to get a 10.9@144Mph in the 1/4 with this, So even if this was an Independent strip run, This isn't gonna do a 9.2s 1/4, 2.4s 0-60Mph is possible, 4.6s 0-100Mph?...Less possible, But pausible is the right word.

Now it MAY be possible to BREAK into the 9s, MAY, 1000Bhp per ton, 1200Lbs, Paddles, But still only has 575Bhp and 310Lb Ft. I cant really say 100%, But its certainly not gonna do those stats you listed.

I'll put the link of the 2007 ssc aero on its page to avoid confusion


User avatar

Blasphemy  3y  

@BR2+ What do you mean?

@dddd yea it might be a few tenths of a second slower to the times, but it's still something.

I agree that speedo footage should be taken with a pinch of salt, but what about his footage of the aero? It uses authentic Official GPS data submitted to dewetron. Shouldn't we at least change the 2007 aero from these videos?


User avatar

dddd  3y  

This is acceleration analysis based on speedo which is obviously not 100 % correct.


User avatar

BR2+  3y  

...This isn't doing any of those times.

From the mobile website. . .

Also see the other videos on his channel, he has data on the venom gt and aero as well as other cars.

@Blasphemy, you got a link/source?


User avatar

Blasphemy  3y  

Has anyone seen asshoela's acceleration analysis of this car (and many others) on youtube? He recorded, from onboard speedo footage, that the t1 did. . .

0-60 - 2.4 secs
0-100 4.6 secs
1/4 mile - 9.2 secs.
0-186 - 12.4 secs.

Don't know if that would qualify on this website, but the figures listed on this car's page seem awfully slow for a car with over 1000 hp/ton.

He also has vids on the venom gt, and 2007 ssc ultimate aero, veyron ss, agera R, mclaren f1 etc. can we use those analyses?

Just wait until they can get the Porsche 918 on the track. Lapped the Lamborghini in under 7 Minutes. And no I am not one of the whining Ferrari owners. I'm one of he Porsche Turbo owners who can put he keys in the car and have it start up no matter what the conditrions are outside or how hard the car has been driven. Even though the reliability of the of both Ferrari and Lamborghini has increased by leaps and bounds the past twenty or so years. For Ferrari it all started with the veneration of the F355 and Shit started to get in line - especially with their racing programs.
