I have this magazine somewhere.. a better question would be where are the BMW supercars? they have none.

Wait till the new M5 comes out.
Apparently better HP/Weight ratio than the Viper!

Hey Moe, check out the GMC Somoma Pickup, it does 10's on the 1/4! Got to be a hoot to see a pickup with the front end up on launch! Now there's something for you to strive for your Lightning!

guys, supercars from the factory arent always good...take a look at the NSX...i heard its no different from any honda, except for the loooks...but performance wise it aint all that good...speaking of which..i saw a yellow 1 with polished rims today! :P

dude, nsx'es are pimped

I saw a 240hp nsx take a euro spec 320hp e36 m3 on the drag strip like it was a chump.

Fear the NSX, fear!

Um, these cars are modified!
not factory modified, but aftermarket.

Dam, they should've included Pablo's Project M3 from European Car, or even better, some guy's Mcoupe AA Turbo in Miami which can kill Yamaha R1 bikes!

Then again these are mainly newer cars sooo...

Lol there cars are nuts, BUT...

There is THE most nuts car on the planet. John Coletti (HOORAY FOR ITALIANS ! ! ! ), who is the head engineer and director of Ford's SVT decided he needed a real man's car. He took the 2nd last gen Mustang, and put a 10L Boss engine in it. He completely modified everything inside and outside the block.

The car is a rocket.

0 - 60 mph in 1.9 seconds!!!

That would rip someone's head off!

1/4 mile in 9 seconds.

All this and completely streetable!!

3 Speed automatic?? How is that possible? I no understand compadre :huh?:

moerom 10-30-2002 01:56 AM

Its built that way to handle the torque and take advantage of the broad torque curve. This engine is mean!

I watched the SuperTuner challenge on Car and Driver TV last weekend... pretty impressive shit! Too bad the Porsche lost by so little.
