I don’t know this car but now I love it 🙂April 15, 2008 at 8:50 pm #129666AnonymousInactive
I’m at class right now, and youtube is blocked, but those specs wowww…
I will check this out when I get home.April 16, 2008 at 1:57 am #129661AnonymousGuest
apart from the fact that it is fast and the engine makes over 1000hp, i real dont like the car for the following reasons:
1) using the word SHELBY in the name and you have no connection to Ol’ Carroll, booooo
B) it looks butt ugly for what you pay for it (I’d rather pay for a Porsche Carrera GT and know that it is “slower” than the SSC but at least I’d know the car looks good, and
4) could they have had a less exciting and lame guy give a report on the car? I didn’t get the feeling that he truly knew what the hell he was talking about when he was “getting excited” reading off the specs (thin tires?!?! they are low profile business week guy). I’d rather hear the guy from Motor Week on PBS read it off in his “movie-fone” voice. At least he is mildly amusing.
sorry SSC, I’ll stick to Citroens, MINI and Speedsters.April 16, 2008 at 1:30 pm #129665AnonymousInactive
didn’t they have this car fall apart on top gear or was that another one? i’ve lost trackApril 17, 2008 at 3:09 am #129662AnonymousGuest
i don’t think they have had the ssc on top gear. I know the stig went flying off the track in the koenigsegg and the caparo caught on fire or somthing but not this ugly thing.April 17, 2008 at 8:04 am #129663AnonymousGuest
The straight-line specs are impressive, but 1.05G on the skidpad isn’t all that staggering for a wannabe supercar. But exactly what makes this a “production” car?April 26, 2008 at 8:27 pm #129664AnonymousGuest
what i love about this car is the design mainly lol…
the design makes it look great,
anyone seconds my opinion? llol
