Thf F50 is Clearly the best car there hands down. the F40 in second and the Mclaren in 3rd, o and thats a Diablo 6.0 VT, which came out in 2001, just thought id let ya know:)

Actually no it came out in 2000, thought I'd let you know. :)

Why you don't copy the performance of the Viper?
o-100 appears 4,5 but i'm pretty sure than that's not the best time
1/4 mile, in 12,2 at 118 mp/h
top speed 192,6

Yes yes, fixed and here is the proof:

Where is the Ruf CTR "Yellow Bird" ?

Added to the thread. :)
Can somebody add it to the poll also please?

we have i think 2 laps for the mclaren, on tsukuba and the ring. and cmon yo, ya cant pick the best car juss cause its the fastest:) but there were 3 cars who bested that 0-100mph in the 90's, te Type 115, GT-One, and the 962LM, ok i know they barley made any but that still counts:) but id still take the F50, how can yall say other wise? its a georgeous car!

Yeah of course I was thinking of all these racers also, (if I thought of the McLaren F1) to add to this poll. But I wanted to stick to the factory, mass produced, street legal, well recognized, and still quite insane and crazy super-cars. :)

Wads, the Big Mac beat the Ferrari Enzo around Bedford by 0.1 secs in Issue 100. It also beat the Ford GT by over a second on the same day. That proves how good it was in it's day,even with poor brakes! I voted for it too!

Have we got those lap times?


User avatar

Bezza  14y ago

although we don't have many (or any?) lap times for it I'm sure it would have been the match for any of the others on the list. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the new McLaren road cars will do around a track.

Hmm, interestingly, nobody has voted for McLaren.

I just did..... maybe UK home country bias but the F1 IMHO is easily the best car here 100mph in 6.3 seconds wasn't bettered by a road car for many, many years and although we don't have many (or any?) lap times for it I'm sure it would have been the match for any of the others on the list.

Those performance figures are too weak for Ferrari F50. 0-100 mph is more like 7 seconds flat, not 8. And quarter mile is in low 11 range.
