-Do you really think Elon Musk is suddenly going to start living up to his promises on delivering on time? I hardly believe it.
-Also, we've seen his cars so far. Straight line fast, yes, but heavy, dull, boring and inert, accompanied by practical and ergonomical flaws that are to be expected from an unexperienced manufacturer as Tesla.
-2020 Roadster promises the same boring stuff. Straight line speed, fancy trendy design and nothing more. Well, not enough for me if you ask me, because the price will be huge, positive.
-By the time that car is ready, other manufacturers will already be ahead, overtaking his tech bubble made for taking fools money on stock market.

This car has such a tremendous straight line acceleration that it is insane...It also must have great drivetrain, gearbox, gear ratios and it has to put power down really good. Then when we combine it with 800 HP/1450 KGS it may have that kind of acceleration capabilities.

 

User avatar

cosimo  3m ago

there's always a catch, i'll let you figure this one out all by yourself :)


User avatar

dddd  3m ago

Despite that car is extremely expensive we can say that its a bargain when we talk about luxurious-high-end supercars. 488 GTB, Huracan and 991.2 Turbo S are not even close to 720S in terms of performance. On this levels that still matters.

 

User avatar

Chanante  3m ago

Funny with 800ps and les than 1450kg is easy to take the numbers. A Ultima GTR cost les than 100k punds and distroy this car but is not "special".


User avatar

cosimo  3m ago

how can it be expensive and a bargain at the same time ? it has its quirks and i hope you're not serious about the bargain part.

all it does is it will hurt the prices of those of who own 675, 650 and spider versions until the next 750 is out or p15 or whatever they will call it.

it's another flop from british engineering for those who want to show off their needle dicks just like porky 9-11 turbo.

i don't even have to open up the overheating part about mclaren cars and turbochargers lol

this is british engineering at its best

User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @cosimo

British engineering is the best but imperfect. Italy has great engineers but their cars don't win all the time either.


User avatar

cosimo  3m ago @Fastedee

and it will remain imperfect for life :)

so if a car wins in a 1/4 mile and does accelerate couple of secs faster, does that mean it's an all time great super car ? e.g. bugatti veyron / chiron ?

the 720s will be dethroned once the successor is out and will be forgotten. hence 12c, 650s ,675 and soon enough the 720.

they still do not get it when it comes to designing a beautiful car mixed with power and passion. even billy and bobby can make tons of power out of a murican ohv v8 with or without a blower :)


User avatar

Cosmo use your brain  1m ago @cosimo

"and it will remain imperfect for life :)" this is not a piece of software ffs, you can't fix it with a downloadable update, all cars are imperfect for life, for example the LFA with it's tiny fuel tank, 4C with it's shit engine, use your brain. Keep in mind that you are talking about a super series cash grab, perfect as the economic boom in China for the last decades made for tons of materialistic billionaires. The super series cars are not here to stay, they are like iPhones with their yearly trivial upgrades. The ultimate series is where McLaren makes it's mark, I don't see the P1 getting forgotten any time soon, and I don't see how McLaren can make the P1 without the Mp4-12c to fund it's development.


User avatar

cosimo  1m ago @Cosmo use your brain

720 is history for the time being now that the track focused version is out but some might remember the 720 because it looks a bit sexier, but the good news is the senna mclaren will rape the the gt2 rs with the right driver behind the wheels of course :)

so basically we're looking at 800 hp that's supposed to beat everything below that number, to some of the losers on this site is a big wow because mclaren tells you it only has 720 hp lol

makes perfect sense why it beats the 488 easily with aventador and tdf, good for them for sticking to vag group porky strategy, less power yet faster than the competition, at least mclaren isn't telling you our 620 hp is faster than 740 hp aventador lol, unlike the naz_i dog sh*t shepehrd vag group

McLaren were ahead of competition since the facelifted MP4-12C, These are essentially carbon fiber cars. Carbon fiber + turbo engine = win. So good to see UK actually has word-class car industry again. Makes everybody else try harder as well. Everybody wins.

We're going to need a 720S vs GT2 RS.
720S is quicker 100-200kph by a good margin, att least in factory specs. 720S supposedly is also lighter.
But how do they compare in downforce and mechanical grip, and of course: lap time?

Porsche did not make a 911 do 10.1 in the quarter mile. Nobody expected Mclaren to do that. Not only is it powerful, it puts down power so well.

User avatar

dddd  5m ago @saxy

Yes it puts down power insanely well. I believe that only Porsche will make car that can be a proper rival to that monster. And may be Lamborghini.

Knowing Ferrari's soft play im almost sure that 488 "Speciale" will be slower (in straight line and on tracks) than 720S. We will see whether im right or not :).


User avatar

saxy  5m ago @dddd

Ferrari has nothing on this. All they would do is make sure nobody gets to test their cars and hope people still think Ferrari are the best.


User avatar

dddd  5m ago @saxy

Unfrotunately it may be truth. But times have changed. Ferrari seems not to see that. Ferrari behaved like they were the only supercars maker in the world. It would be hilarious if 488 "Speciale" were slower than 720S and i can almost guarantee that it will be slower than this Mclaren. Could be wrong though but from what i have seen (458 Speciale hardly any faster than regular 458 Italia and 488 GTB slower than 650S) i dont believe that Ferrari would start to play hard.

From the other side i know that Porsche still produces the best high performance cars and they can make miracle with their cars. So it will be interesting to see this competition.

You two Ferrari-haters are so much fun. :'-D

Cars with a full aluminium chassis, with significantly less power than officially declared (according to your statements), and yet they have more or less the same laptimes and the same pace of corresponding cars with a full carbon chassis and weighing 100-200 kg less:

http://fastestlaps.com/comparisons/ce5fuz2h2cia

http://fastestlaps.com/comparisons/6v0s06e3u0p9

And that should be a fail for Ferrari? :'-D

Please, stop being an embarassment for yourself.


User avatar

saxy  5m ago @Murmur

Wow, aluminum chassis, so advanced!


User avatar

Murmur  5m ago @saxy

That's the point, genius. Choosing to use either an aluminium or a carbon chassis is an industrial choice, not a necessity for Ferrari. It could certainly choose to build its V8 cars with carbon instead of aluminium, if they decided to do so. So, you have a car with an aluminium chassis, weighing 100kg or more, seemingly having less power than stated... And yet it goes as fast as its carbon-chassis, lighter, seemingly more powerful opponent. Yeah, a total fail for Ferrari! :'-D


User avatar

Fastedee  5m ago @dddd

The 488 already beats
the new Huracan and Aventador S in a Straight line. The 911 Turbo S is nearly 2 seconds slower to 200 than the McLaren. The GT2RS might do 7.8- 8 to 200 and will be further behind the McLaren by 250. I suspect the 488 Speciale will be the 2nd fastest car under 500k followed by the 812.McLarens thing has become unparalleled acceleration.


User avatar

dddd  5m ago @Murmur

Im not a Ferrari hater. I would love to see Ferrari playing hard again.
But when i see that 488 GTB is barely as fast as Mclaren Mp4-12c i call it a soft play. I hope that 488 "Speciale" will be special for real - it will be the chance for Ferrari to get in game again.

So there are two possible options :

  • Ferrari finally understands that they have to start to be on the top again and 488 "Speciale" will have incredible performance that will be proved in many tests and direct comparisons with the best (720S, Huracan Performante, 991 GT2 RS etc)

  • or they will continue their soft play - from the one side they will say that 488 "Speciale" is faster around the Fiorano than the Laferrari, 0-200 km/h in low 7s etc but the car will NEVER be allowed to be tested - similiar situation to F12 TDF ...Why ? You all know why...

What about Ferrari 812 ? It is an absolutely amazing super(GT)car , its easily one of the best cars that is currently produced when we talk about whole package (look, handling, luxurious, handling, steering, sound, throttle response, engine itself, comfort for that kind of car etc) but its performance level wont be staggering. Not even close to the level of 720S. Im pretty sure that 812 is slower than even 650S.

My opinion is that when Ferrari were proud with their products they were tested many times ( F430, Scuderia, 599 , 458 Italia ). What about current situation ?

dddd  5m ago @Fastedee

I would like to see that 812 is quicker in straight line than 650S. Ur opinion is that 812 is faster than 650S, my opinion is that is slower...We will propably have to wait for some amateur roll drag races to know who of us is right. Why ? Propably 812 wont be allowed to be officialy tested. Secondly when we talk about this GT car only roll start is good coze from the dig it will be sluggish like F12 is.


User avatar

Fastedee  5m ago @dddd

In the Auto Express dragrace the F12 caught the Turbo S at 60 mph and then pulled away. It was standing start in the slight damp.
