If someone was crazy enough to do high rpm clutch drop/full gas/no mercy redline acceleration run in this 36 million dollar car and then do equally traumatic emergency stop at 230 kph, this is the data one would end up with (see est. perf figures above)

Off-topic: I know BR2 find it hard to find value in a car costing 1 million, but another luxury item which is even harder to justify would expensive watches and I woul agree that they are a waste of money

HOWEVER there is one watch I saw on a vscause vid called midnight planetarium which shows you the position of the planet and the star maps movement as of currently, all the planets ( up to Saturn) has exact time movement which means mercury will take 88 days to circle the watch and Saturn will take 29 years

Impressive engineering worth the 245k I would say

250 GTO would definitely be my choice.


User avatar

lafars  6y ago

I'd pick a series 1 250 GTO

Interesting fact: 36 series 1 GTOs were built, 3 series 2 GTOs and 4 series 1 were converted to series 2 bodies

@Super8: I'd choose the Ferrari.


User avatar

Super8  6y ago

I got confuse about my choice. This or Shelby Daytona?

@ Flabernat: I totally agree! If I had a Ferrari 250 GTO, you can bet your sweet December I'd drive it, every other day, church, work, grocery shopping, road trips, I'd use it.


User avatar

Flabernat  7y ago

The whole reason we love cars like this is because of how special it is to drive them.
Buying this for 52million to park in a garage completely defeats the purpose of buying a car like this.


User avatar

Shaggy  7y ago

@ BR2+: I have to agree with you, there. no car is worth $52,000,000, I don't car how much of a classic it is. If I buy a car, I'm going to drive it, if it's in running condition but I can't drive it, it's not worth buying, not worth a plug nickel.

Hamcee  7y ago

this isnt a car anymore, its just an investment. same as artworks.

it will probably never been driven, but exhibited somewhere and in 10 years going to sell for 60m


User avatar

Fangio Man  7y ago

52.000.000 !?!

Well, as much as I love the car, as much as I love cars. 52.000.000 is a price I would never, will never spend on a car, no matter on which...


User avatar

Piorun  7y ago

Wow, 52 millions
So how much will cost new wipers? 200.000 ?


User avatar

BR2+  7y ago

You know the world has gone to shite when somebody purchases a car for 52Million...

Humans..I swear..I cant stand them.

I saw one of these at Carfest South 2013 (laverstoke park farm) owned by Nick Mason. Apparently he refused £20 million for it!!

@ Fangio Man : yeah , The 917 K .


User avatar

Fangio Man  7y ago

@CoolShirtGuy
You are right, the 917 did the fastest laptime ever to be recorded around Le Mans. Jackie Oliver drove the 13,569 km long circuit, with an average speed of 244,387 kph, in 3:18.4 minutes during a race.
The fastest qualifying laptime was driven by Hans Joachim Stuck in a Porsche 956.

@ Fangio Man: Not for me, I used to have a Pontiac, it was a turd, I'll never have another one. XO

@Shaggy
Must have been a hard decision. ;D

I'd pick this over a Pontiac GTO any day.

The best. True Ferrari. Pure GTO.

Shaggy  7y ago

@ PeterN: Yeah, I know, BR2' told me. lol


User avatar

PeterN  7y ago

This is defiantly one of the greatest cars in the world. And the Porsche 917 does not go 300mph


User avatar

Bijan  7y ago

@ remengo : Agree with you .The white #22 Martini Porsche 917 K hold the record on Lemans for 40 years , not the 917/30 that made for Can-Am racing only , and never runs at Lemans .


User avatar

remengo  7y ago

Probably it is, but for the old layout, as the circuit has been modifyed many times,in 1990 they added two chicanes on the mulsanne straight, so the times are quite difficult to compare.


User avatar

CoolShirtGuy  7y ago

@Shaggy
I'm fairly certain that the 917/30 still holds the record for the fastest lap ever recorded at Le Mans; a record it's held since the 70's.


User avatar

Shaggy  7y ago

@ CoolShirtGuy: You maybe right, it did set a speed record at LeMans, if I remember correctly, it reached over 250 MPH on the Mulsanne straight.


User avatar

CoolShirtGuy  7y ago

@Shaggy
It's said that the 917/30 had a top speed of "over 260mph", but that's unproven, and it certainly wouldn't be able to do it on a road course. Even the N'Ring's massive straight wouldn't be enough for 300mph. You'd need something like the 5.6-mile straight at Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessien test track.
