you'll feast on a 0-60mph time of 4.4 seconds

That's not bad, but I'd hope for more with that much hp. The thing must weigh 6,000 lbs.

They should have equipped it with their Bergen B32:40 engine.

The Wraith is very big, weighs in at about 5,000 lbs.

it even comes complete with  Suicide doors

Yet another generic supercar in the numbers race.  Service costs will be ridiculous.  No thanks.

I'll take an old Morgan Plus 4, which I'd have a lot more fun in.

I read about this earlier, and it stated that the 8-speed automatic transmission used GPS data to shift accordingly on upcoming turns in the road.  That made me wonder two things, what if the GPS is wrong, and how does this work on roads where there are multiple turns, and you haven't specified an actual ending address?

Rolls Royce Wraith.

Thay that three times real fatht.

So what? It's the 21st century, and luxury cars are totally overrated.

Sorry if that makes some of you mad.

That thing looks like a Chrysler 300 with slightly nicer body panels.

Yes; yes it does...

/Sorry; couldn't help it
 
2013-03-09 10:37:05 PM
So they have the Phantom, Ghost and Wraith.

I do like their history of naming cars after chaotic evil D&D characters. Some other suggestions would be Reverent, Zombie, Beholder, and Lich.
 
2013-03-09 10:37:26 PM
What's that Mr Clarkson? They didn't just say adequate this time?
 
2013-03-09 10:37:27 PM
Ok. So that is very, very pretty.

Sorry if that makes some of you mad.
 
2013-03-09 10:37:48 PM
So when is Top Gear gonna get it out on a rally car track?

Oh please. Americans have a totally unhealthy obsession with noisy oilburners that go fast.

This is no exception.

How does this pedantic exercise of yours negate the point I made?
 
2013-03-09 10:45:32 PM
And yet it'll only be legally allowed to go 65MPH. 85 tops.

How many rich people drive across the Bonneville Salt Flats to their office?

Obsession with oilburners that go fast...

Might be true.. There was another RX-8 where I parked last night. That fits your description well.

/Not very noisy though.

Sure, and on those grounds, let's also get rid of porn stars and candy. And fun and art and stuff.

Right. So that means I have an even bigger stake in calling out the combustion engine lie than those who don't live here.

Why, are you some kind of puritanical Christian or something?
 
2013-03-09 10:51:14 PM
Another mark in the downfall of civilized society.  Back in the day, the horsepower of a Rolls Royce was "adequate."  And it was.

The point is kinda imbedded in the sarcasm. If you can't get it, then i'm just not going to explain it to you.

There are plenty of race tracks you can let it rip.

But of course it's just a dick waving contest for the 1% so it doesn't really matter.

What combustion engine lie? Actually, I live near you.

My point is that change comes from within. Don't get your jollies off by trying to control other people to your whims and ideologies. If they want to drive a fat V8 let 'em. Car exhaust is far from being the leading cause of greenhouse gases.

You don't even know what you're talking about. You have no actual vested research in pollution and climate change. The entirety of your knowledge about the topic comes blindly from websites that are the same one's that convinced you to buy a hybrid car. No, I don't want to see any of your links.

Yeah, because if I knew what I was talking about, I would be making incredibly embarrassing apologies for the single biggest contributor to greenhouse gases on this planet.

Like you're doing.
