Actually i was refering to the S7...

Its light, But not 2300lbs lights, 2500Lbs is the region, But leightweight will only get you so far, And most stats on the S7 havent been corrected

@BR2, Exactly.... Also the fact that the F1 only weighs around 2,300lbs might have something to do with it... :)

your mentality should be thinking the other way around. How does an old school manual RWD car manage to do a 1/4 mile pass at 146mph, pretty much as fast as a P1, which has advance launch control, stickier tires, advance suspension, insane torque/power, and most importantly a DCT.

How the frizzle does it take 7 secs for a 750 hp TT supercar from 146-156 mph? I dont mind a falcon boss 351 doing that but an s7!?!?!

Wow! I'm surprised, and impressed! I thought the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo would have killed the McLaren F1.
