what\'s all this the caparo kills every car on track.... the only car it kills is itself and the driver.

@FastestLaps

the problem is that Power/weight ratio is an logical data it doesn't prove anything in cars performance yes it shows how light and powerful a car is but in real life comparison the car is fast because of what it has not what it have calculated on paper cars like the nissan gt-r would be a great example..

And it is clear that laptimes in fastestlaps.com comparisons have by far the most weight.

try disabling p/w ratio points and come and check the results in this page again..

Power/weight ratio is the most important of straight line speed figures. Because it\'s the most relevant to track performance. And track performance is what indicates which car is really faster. Not top speed, power or acceleration.

Laptimes are, of course, above all the most important factor. And it is clear that laptimes in fastestlaps.com comparisons have by far the most weight.

So I don\'t understand where\'s the problem.

@fastestlaps any news?

@fastestlaps

you see what that stupid logical Power/weight ratio can do in the comparison tool?
this is not the only case it happens but almost in every compare.. i think that you should make it visual only, PTWR should not have anything to do with points

The T1 was sliding, oversteering , understeering and whatnot as a result.

The T1 now has better setup to control the under/oversteer issues it had then.

to compare track performance,the only circuit both cars have raced on is the Topgear track. Caparo t1 did 1:10.6 and Ron 1.16.8.
Thats basically a runway so its mostly straights.
This, even though the caparo t1 relied heavily on downforce to corner well; and as Jeremy Clarkson said,in a slow corner, it has NO grip at all; and most of the corners on TG were SLOW except for the first and follow thru.
The T1 was sliding, oversteering , understeering and whatnot as a result.
so most probably the incredible T1\'s laptime was due to its superb acceleration on the straights, which smokes any other supercar except the \'Ron by far.
But given the Veyron SS is faster than a T1,the 6s slower laptime only attested to the horrible cornering abilities of the veyron, relative to supercar standards.
this is only expected given it weighs nearly 2 tons, and we cant expect 2 tons to corner as agily as 1 or even further, 0.5 tons of the T1.

That also occured with the original \'Ron vs the Zonda F roadster, which did 1.18.3 and 1.17.8.

Bumrush,
the caparo t1 takes 20.3s to reach 290kmh because its a very draggy vehicle.
remember, the engineers deliberately increased the drag coefficient in order to create the downforce needed to generate formula 1 levels of grip.
it also has very little hp compared to a veyron.With miniscule weight, that equals high hp/ton and immense acceleration, but once that\'s been whittled away by the aero drag, that leaves behind a very slow vehicle.
in fact, 20.6s 290kmh is very fast for a very unaerodyanmic vehicle with only 500hp. a mclaren f1 for example with 627hp and half the drag will do 0-300kmh in 22.6s
Otherwise, the 0-60, 0-100, 0-120mph the two are equally matched. The T1 may outrun the 1000hp veyron, but now the new SS has 1200hp is less obvious.

The Veyron beats the T1 in a straightline no question, Veyron takes 16.3s to reach 300kmh, T1 takes 20.4s to reach 290kmh, and in the 1/4 mile the Ron is ahead by 1.1s, 9.8s vs 10.9, 150mph vs 144mph, T1 tested bt AutoCar and Veyron tested by BM/Aus, So the SuperSport will no doubt Crush the T1 in a straightline, the T1 will prolly feel faster due to being an open top(If you choose) but around track, as im sure you all know, the T1 will win no question.

By the 1/4 mile, the Veyron should be ahead. The standard Veyron does the 1/4 quicker than the T1.

Yea, it would be a good 1/4 mile drag race. The Caparo is one quick machine. And to go 200 mph in the Caparo is crazy.

phavyarden  10y ago

at the track caparo kills every car in this site, in a 1/4 mile drag race it would be a sick comparasion, top speed obvious result.

hmm, nice power/weight ratio. Would you call the Caparo a quicker car?
