didn't some florida police dept have a ferrari a while back - a captured drug car?

You probably could if you were driving a Koenigsegg Agera R.
 
2013-04-12 05:45:08 PM
That light bar wouldn't stay on over 140.

Yeah, that would work too, but I as far as I know, the Koenigsegg is faster.  The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport did hold the title of fastest production car, but it recently lost that title because they put a speed limiter on the models they sell.  But, while it held that title, the Koenigsegg unofficially beat its speed.

i think a saleen or something in the states just beat them both. but there was some controversy about it.

/i'd be happy with an M5!

I hadn't heard about that.  Is the Saleen a production car?

I"m curious as to what kind of speeds this Arab supercar - the Lykan Hypersport - is capable of.  The thing has even more badass angles about it than the Lamborghini Veneno.

Venom GT. It's a heavily modified Lotus Exige. It's officially the worlds fastest production car. But some dispute that because it's a modified Lotus and not a "pure" production car. And they also estimate that it's top speed should be in the 270's (272 or more) but they haven't had a chance to run it full out yet.

sorry - it was a hennessey venom GT. hit 265 MPH.

I believe the Koenigsegg unofficially did 273.

As far as i know they haven't actually run it yet. It's a theoretical top speed. I guess the problem all these guys have is that they can't run in a place long enough to verify the top speed. But I would love to see them do it.

I kind of think once you've gotten to over 150MPH, it doesn't really matter how fast you go, you're still probably going to be dead if something bad happens.

Tellingthem: But I would love to see them do it.


I would too, if only because it's a Swedish car, and I have Scandinavian blood in me.  Plus, I think the Agera is a better looking car than the Veyron.

But, the most gorgeous new high end sports car is definitely the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

The scallop thing on the door kind of bothers me though. It just looks weird. I have a major thing for Aston's so their usually my top pick. hmmm man i really couldn't pick just one. I like so many cars for different reason.

I like it.  I didn't at first, but it grew on me.  But yeah, very difficult to choose just one car.

How long until they crash it, or it gets crashed into.
 
2013-04-12 07:15:23 PM
as a yank, i advise that if you can't outrun, outgun.

TFA: The Italian-made Lamborghini Aventador will be mostly dispatched to tourist areas to show - in the words of deputy police director General Khamis Matter al-Muzaina - "how classy Dubai is".

Stay classy, Dubai.

The force is also adding some American Camaros cars.

Cameros cars?

Slave owners with insane drug laws buy their cops lambos to show off to white folk.

Sounds classy to me.

Wait, wait, I know this. Was Don Johnson driving it? Was there a Phil Collins song playing?

A dune buggy would work just fine for outrunning that thing on sand.

Still, it's in the wacky Middle East, so no thanks.
