    Yeah, Corvettes are still mass produced. This is more of the "Answer to a Bugatti" than "Corvette"

    I can't recall who it was that posted the pic of the KTM car. If I had to buy a toy, at that price, it would be that.

    That was me, its a sick car. You can go to some website and pick what options you want I forget the site though, and I dont remember it being to pricey for what it is.

    Yeah maybe so with all carbon fiber everything and all the bells and whistles, but I would be more than happy with the bottom of the line model. Put the base X-Bow next to the top of the line Vette and what do you think would get more looks. Not to mention be waaayy more fun to drive.

    Or, you can wait for the latest offering by Ariel. The supposed successor the the 300bhp Atom is to have a supercharged 2.4L V8. This article says 500bhp. I can't find any later news, but I had heard that because Caterham announced a 500bhp 7, that Ariel bumped it to 600bhp. 600bhp...in a kart that weighs 1,100lbs...

    I knew that car was familiar, i saw it at the International Autoshow in Toronto in February, here are some pics of it, it was tough to get a shot with all the people around but enjoy.

    looks sick, but i think they need different wheels to actually drive that thing. those look like they would fall apart at around 60.

    I just watched the vid, and i would never drive that car. it sounds like the engine is going to blow up while its idling....thats scary.

    The look like they were designed to vent the brakes, the way the spokes are angled that is.
