I would say that I really like this car, but I know Dante's gonna talk about how it is a piece of **** because it's American, then **** off to the Ferrari Enzo.

dante  1w ago

it's a pos alright lol

i almost threw up when i saw the interior, i mean who the f..... came up with such a fugly interior ? who are the suppliers ? pep boys ? auto barn ? summit racing ? seriously ? bahahahahahahahahahaha

it's a complete waste of money that says rusty and billy bob tagged along and decided to come up with something creative with a made in our humble backyard under the hood.

g4tzk9iacbbj.jpg?550x800m

that interior is definitely not the type of car with an msrp of 555k, this thing max i'd give it 25k, because of its performance, other than that this thing better disappear for good in one of those category 5 hurricanes and vanish for good.

it can't handle a simple door ding lol

Ha ha ha. So you couldn't find anything wrong with this car and had to resort to critiquing interior for what is essentially a road legal race car.

What about your beloved F40 or Enzo? That's right - they don't even have any interior - no carpets, roll-up windows, little to no sound insulation etc.


User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago @FastestLaps

Now let's not be critical of the F40 or i'll point out the flawed Saleen acceleration figures like the 1/4 mile 10.5 @146 mph or the 0-100 km/h and 0-60 mph nonsense. Car and Driver tested it and they got 10.9 @ 140 mph which is certainly possible.

Is it illegal to be critical of F40? It's just a car. Probably way overrated at this point too.


User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago @FastestLaps

It was a superlative supercar for its era ie.1987 so one needs to bear that in mind. The advances in tech in the last 30 years has been remarkable so of course it doesn't have all the sophisticated computer tech which controls every little thing to make driving so much easier for the wealthy morons who own current supercars.

'Ha ha ha. So you couldn't find anything wrong with this car and had to resort to critiquing interior for what is essentially a road legal race car.'

interior is a disgrace no doubt, for 555k i expect my engine to be advanced with latest tech and not some pushrod stone age tech and 2-valves lol, this is best left in bedfords and broncos and other trucks that want to hit the 1/4 mile with a big puff of black smoke shooting out their exhausts lol

the chevy c8 is the one to go for or wait for the z06, the saleen is closer to a kit car from a low budget hollywood movie starring jim carrey :)

'What about your beloved F40 or Enzo? That's right - they don't even have any interior - no carpets, roll-up windows, little to no sound insulation etc.'

because that's how it was meant to be, a race car with plate numbers, unless you believe it should drive and sound like a vw tiguan with a granny to massage your thighs while listening to this :)

Disagree 100% I can see how it can be acquired taste. Yes the rims do look a bit small, especially compared to modern cars, and, yes, some people don't even like the looks of "regular" old 911s. But I never considered 959 to be ugly.

User avatar

ProDriveP2  6y ago

How is the 0-200mph faster than 0-300kph?


User avatar

Guest  7y ago

Someone's mistake has been here for a while. The 1/2 mile trap speed is 176-186 mph, not 156.


User avatar

BR2'  8y ago

Its all we have to compare the times. The S7 TT 0-150Mph ranges from slowest of 13.6s, to fastest of 11.0s depending on the test, Same with the slowest 0-200Mph of 35.2s, and Fastest 23.4s, At the 1/4 eveyr S7 TT test has a higher Trap speed then the Veyrons, and theres only one test of the 2 doing the Full mile, where the S7 BEATS it to 200Mph by 1.1s and with a higher trap speed in the mile.(Albeit different day)

There is a .8s difference in 0-100Mph, but after the that Gap doesnt widen, it closes, and fast, The Veyrons faster below 150Mph, After its all S7, what happens past 210Mph, is anyones guess, would the Veyron win because of power/torque/tranny? or would the S7 win because of Weight/aerodynamics?...Cant say ..

@Mental

From a dig the Veyron is faster, around a track I could guarantee it would get destroyed, and I do mean destroyed not beat. The S7 doesn't need a Pro driver, its actually easier to drive then a ZO6, but a good driver is required nonetheless, And the S7 wont be as popular as the Veyron, due to lack of press and company name, but like ive said before, who in there right mind would take a Veyron over this Beautiful Beast? Honestly..


User avatar

Hamcee  8y ago

there are way to many contradictions in order to compare the times.

the veyron hit 0-100mph in 5,1 seconds while the s7 hit 0-100mph in 5,9 seconds.

a difference of 0,8

then, 0-150mph the veyron hit 11,3 and s7 13,6

a difference of 2,3 seconds


User avatar

Mental  8y ago

In acceleration and top speed aspects, my money would be on Veyron, if it ever raced with Saleen. But on the track, I suppose Veyron's ass would be kicked. However, the results highly vary with random drivers. While Bugatti can be driven with one hand, Saleen needs only pro-driver for the win.

But whatever about numbers.. VW has no chance to be more brutal and beloved than S7.


User avatar

BR2'  8y ago

Well...It has..theres no head to head direct comparison, but they have both been tested on the same event albeit different days. This S7 has a faster 0-150Mph, and onwards, as proven, Every trap speed in the 1/4 mile has also been faster then the Veyron, slowest to slowest fastest to fastest, so its not Unbelievable in any way that this wouldn't stand a chance or even beat a Veyron at those speeds.

But again, theres no head to had, but its the best we have to go on, and who in there right mind would take a Veyron over this beauty?(Selling one aside)


User avatar

ddd  8y ago

I dont think that this car can beat Veyron...

0-300 in 16s ? Impossible for that car.


User avatar

BR2'  8y ago

This beats a Veyron to 150Mph and 200Mph, And has a faster Mile time and trap speed, So why wouldn't this hit 300kph sooner? When the best test of a Veyron hits 300Kph in 16.7s?..


User avatar

Hamcee  8y ago

lol, 15-16 seconds?
never ever, more like 20-21 seconds


User avatar

BR2'  8y ago

I dunno if the Aerodynamics are active or adjustable.

But not being able to hit 300Kph and actually hitting the ground is HIGHLY impressive, and hilarious at the same time.

But the reason for the bad 0-100kph time and 300kph time is simple, 2 different tests and 2 different drivers, the driver in the test that recorded a 4.2 0-100kph was bad, he bombed with all the cars in the comparison tests, but the guy who did the better test nailed it, great mile and 200mph time, 0-300kph in most likely high 16s or high 15s given its better test results.

And no, Fangio, its real speed is Much higher then 300kph, dunno the actual setting were on that test DeDe mentioned.

But Fuk me I love this car!


User avatar

Fangio Man  8y ago

@DeDe
So, its real speed is under 300 kph? :D

Or was it a mistake made by the factory? (I think it was)


User avatar

DeDe  8y ago

Technological perfection: when AutoBild tested this car it couldn't reach 300 kph, because the body generated too much downforce and the car actually hit the ground. LOL!


User avatar

Hamcee  8y ago

the kph time is just off, probably due to a bad take off.
it begins with a bad 0-100 time which logically leads to worse 0-200 and 0-300 times.


User avatar

Fangio Man  8y ago

Maybe another setup for the 1/4 mile time? Could be an explanation... Same with the 0-300 kph and 0-200 mph time. Better conditions maybe, too... Hard to find an answer!


User avatar

ddd  8y ago

9,9s 0-200 and 1/4 @ 146 mp/h= 235 km/h in 10,5s ?

Something is wrong...


User avatar

Fangio Man  8y ago

@QA51M
I know. But one is unnecessary, IMO.


User avatar

QA51M  8y ago

they are two individual tests i think


User avatar

Fangio Man  8y ago

Sorry, delete the 0-300 kph or the 0-200 mph, please. One is wrong!
