To put in my 2 cents, I too would rather have the Lamborghini LP640... hmm wha a surprise from me huh? haha
But seriously, for me it is just a preference thing I guess. I'm not saying the Supra is not an amazing car, because it is and it shows here.

Lastly, at the end of the video it says "Race between my LP640 and my 1200hp Supra" ...so I am led to believe the same guy owns both. Whether or not he was driving the Lambo I am not sure.

Dont know bout that....I ve had 308kph on the shift from 5th to 6th on an 850bhp Supra driving in Germany. Plus the owner says he has seen 330kmh a few times with more to come and judging by the pull i got on 6th i believe him.
So a 1200bhp should see that Lambo in any way i can think of!

I dont see your point! The supra and the lambo have many things on the same level. Both are street legal both can be filled up at any gas station both have extra comfort features etc.
A Top fuel has nothing in common as its fully custom not street legal and the best comfort feature it has is a parachute.
If you look at races the way you do then i ll take a SR-71 Blackbird and race your top fuel on a top end race! Or how about we race a bullet against a top fuel?
Sorry i just dont see the point of your comment.
That Lambo got bumraped and that is the end of the story!

^ apples to apples, my friend. let's spend a similar dollar amount on similar mods to the lambo and then put them up side by side.

i remember seeing a custom car magazine cover with a 9 second civic. my question is, would most people choose the lambo or the civic? at the end of the day, its still a pos civic. you can make any shitbox go fast if you spend enough money and do enough mods. just because you have a fast rice rocket doesn't mean you have the right to compare it to supercars.

i don't know how you can't see my point. you don't have to agree with it, but i have a very valid point.

Exactly.

Once I get my ZR-1, it'll likely decimate a Ferarri 430 on a straight line, and around the twisties. But in the end, it's still just a Vette, and not a Ferrari.

Hey, the ZR-1 is nothing to snuff at and you car isn't "just a Vette". Although I'm not a Corvette guy and probably never will be, I admit that it is a wonderful car. In this month's issue, Road and Track does a 4 way test of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, the Vette and the F430. They found the F430 to be the best car, but the Vette was a close second, voted best V8 engine of the four.

Comparing a Vette to a Ferrari is a fair comparison.

i don't know how you can't see my point. you don't have to agree with it, but i have a very valid point.

Lets take your example and spent say 30000 dollars on both. I still think the supra would beat it! Ignoring the fact the price difference the cars had originaly is silly. Plus how many guys do you see modifying a Lambo in their garage?
You would have to take it to the top hogs of modifying meaning top dollars to pay.
With the Supra a good management system and a good single tubo kit with a litle bit of elbow grease means big power. So i would still stick with the Supra.
If you want to talk posing then yes i d take the Lambo. But thats about it!
And personally if i had to chose between say a 9 second Supra and a Lambo i would take the Supra and go humiliate Lambo owners. But thats just me!

I think europrince is forgetting the fact that inorder to do the same mods, you gotta spend tripple the amount just because its a supercar. Go pasta rocket


Also supras pimp factor is up there with the lambo, maybe not as much but u still get maaaad props for riding a supra.

I read somewhere that the supra driver owns both cars.. I don't know how credible that source was though...

when I see a Supra, I give the same reaction if it was a Lambo, both cars are rare to see on the road.

but the point that Magnus & DriveItSideways is true, I remember reading about some guys that quad turboed thier Ferrari 512, the total project came out to $1,000,000 & they got over 1000HP from it, but the 0-60 & 1/4 mile numbers were shit. even with all the money spent & HP it still can't beat a modded Supras.

too each his own. IMO a rice rocket will always be a rick rocket.

the Supra was a great car in its time. For that, it should be remembered. Given its rarity, it keeps its market value. That's all I'll give it.

That i why it feels extra bad when you drive a MUCHO $$$$$$$$$ "Fasterinii Orgasmosa Gt" poser cars and a cheap ricer kicks your ass!
That was my point!
