You can encrust a Yugo with diamonds, but it's still just a Yugo.

I like cars like this just because they look so absurd, so over the top and brash. It's like a Lamborghini designer smoked crack for 10 days straight and then tried to cross the Batmobile with a stealth jet. The diamonds are stupid though.

Why are all so called super cars so ugly?
 
2014-04-25 09:04:43 AM
Everyone knows that white virgins are worth five times as much.  Cheapos...
 
2014-04-25 09:10:06 AM
As opposed to babies who are not virgins?  Do they get inferior gas mileage or something?

It's not a bad thing, but it is a stupid thing.
It makes aout as much sense as a suit of chain-mail made with gold wire: Gaudy, impractical, and guaranteed to get you laughed at.

You see, if I ever become rich I'm just going to buy a tank. It's not as "upscale", but I can crush your fancy diamond encrusted car with it. I think that's what I'd actually do, just drive over this and other expensive ass cars at the rich people hideout with a tank, while flipping the douchebag owners off.

Worst part of it? No radar absorbent plating, no deployable batshields, no pop-up 50 cal cannons, no turbine engine and I'll bet the whole thing isn't even remote controlled by voice command. For $3.4 mil I'd want that stealth Batmobile to be farking functional.

I think it looks quite nice, but the engine sounds...lackluster for such an expensive car. I'm curious about its performance specs.

I'm pretty sure it's a 911 turbo engine, and even when revving it, it didn't seem like the driver was putting too much toe into it.  I like the way it sounds, but that is because I always liked the sound of a flat 6.  Article says 700+hp and 700+lbs ft of torque, 240mph top speed and a 2.8second 0-60 time.

I'm based towards V8's, although there are plenty of 6 cylinder engines that offer remarkable performance.

I hope they test the car out on the track. I've always been wary of the figures touted by the manufacturers. I can't remember which car it was (it was a Porsche), but the new model's 0-60 time was far superior to the previous generation's (or a similar car's) yet it had a slower quarter mile time.

Unless you are a Lannister.

I prefer a simple E-Type anyway... but there will be people to buy it mainly because it costs so much.
 
2014-04-25 10:30:26 AM
Yeah, but what kind of MPG does it get?

I came here to make a similar joke. Glad to see I'm not travelling alone.

Because any schmo can get a decent looking car (or clothes, or furnishings, etc.).  These are cheap now.

Rich people prefer ugly stuff because it sets them apart.

Launch control has made a big difference in that area.

I saw Road & Track doing repeated launch control tests on the 911 Turbo S and it was ridiculously consistent and controlled, so much so, they did a launch without even putting a hand on the steering wheel and it was uneventful.

Based on the power-to-weight ratio and the location of the engine, I think the 2.8 is within the realm of possible, especially if it has launch control.  It's got a better power-to-weight ratio than a Ferrari F12 with the benefit of weight over the drive wheels that the F12 doesn't have.  That car gets to 60 in 3.1.

mrlewish: Why are all so called super cars so ugly?


The buyers want the car to look really distinctive so that people will ask them what sort of car it is, giving them  an opening to talk about how exclusive and expensive it is: "Oh this? One of only four in the world, but I had some custom items added as the base model wasn't to my taste".
 
2014-04-25 12:22:10 PM
That car is beautiful. What a work of art. I tend to love all the crazy supercars though.

What's not to love. Rare, faster than pretty much everything on the road, advanced techology.

For the guy upstream. What does it matter if is a v6, a v8 or a rotary as long as it performs? There's tons of v6s and straight sixes that can put in work.

Same as a second hand Nissan GTR.

I wouldn't even fit in the passenger side of that thing.

Baby virgins, not virgin babies.  As opposed to adult virgins.

It's kinda lame to hear rice-burner-esque turbocharger whip coming from a $3.4 million car.

Did not think you can embody the spirit of Douchebag so well in such an expensive car. The only thing its missing are duck lips.
