Hey man, haven't seen you about for a while, glad that you are back. While you were gone, I drew up a memberlist in my userpage, check it out!

Also, woo-hoo @ 7th page!

I once drove a Zonda S on a track. Hated it though. It always kept losing control or hitting the guardrail.

Don't get too jealous. I'm almost certain he's full of shit and my reasoning is that there are only 32 Zonda S's in the world. There's two Zonda S models and the cheaper of the two sold for around US $350,000. Now why the hell would anyone in their right mind allow someone who can't even control a car to drive their $350,000 supercar? Multiple hits on a guardrail could cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair especially if there was any damage to the bodywork.

My guess is that he's either full of shit or that he 'drove' it in a computer game which would explain how he had it on a track and why he wasn't worried about crashing it into the guard rails.

I also recently discovered something that caused my respect for Pagani to plummet. The Zonda C12 S and the Zonda C12 S 7.3 both use the same 7.3 L V12 as the SL73 AMG. A total of 85 SL73 AMG's were built all in 1999 and their engines pumped out 525 bhp. 9 Years later Pagani decided to use the same engine yet only managed to get an extra 18 bhp out of it in the C12 S and 22 bhp in the C12 S 7.3. It's no wonder they don't make their own engines.

Shocking Pagani revelations.

Wow, never knew that. That sucks bigtime, it's pretty incompetent of them.

That, and the fact that this kid is a really bad BBS spammer who honestly does talk out of his ass most of the time, and uses alts to get around BBS bans, in order to continue spamming. DON'T TRUST A WORD HE SAYS.

LOL! That would be hilarious. "Hey guys, in my estimation, video games and reality are the same thing, so anything I do on a video game is actually real."

In that case, right now I'm on my path to being a Jedi, roaming the sea-covered world of Manaan with my trusty Jedi companions, searching for a lost and ancient star map that will lead me to the deadliest weapon in the universe.

As far as cars go, I'm getting my car fixed (FINALLY) after having a little crash a few months ago. Finally scraped the money together to get it sorted out. All that really needs doing is bodywork on the front, and a new bonnet. The reason why it takes so long is because of the stupid way my car is put together, meaning that they have to take off the side panels to get some of the front bumper off.

By the way, have you seen the Koenigsegg CCGT IMO its the best looking Koenigsegg so far. Unfortunatley, though it it also the slowest as it was built for GT1 Class racing so it had to be built to certain specifications meaning it only puts out 600 bhp.

We should at least give this guy a chance. I propose we set up a race with the Zafira, an SCC Ultimate Aero, a Veyron and a Koenigsegg CCXR. If the Zafira wins I will happily concede that it is the best car in the world.

Speed isn't everything, though, so we'll have to think up some other tests so that we can judge it from every possible angle: performance, aesthetics, desirability, etc etc.

Still looks bad for the Zafira.

Although it may have the upper hand in cost-effectiveness and practicality...

It always did, TBH.

Yeah... obviously it'll have most supercars beat in MPG, and purchase / insurance price. Doesn't mean it's the best car in the world though. To judge the best car in the world, you'd have to look at every little detail, like the engineering, technical comparisons with other cars, etc etc.

I think we can safely assume, despite not doing any of the appropriate legwork, that the Zafira is in fact NOT the best car in the world. ;P

Always the 1950's Jaguar XK140 for me. One of the most beautiful cars ever IMO. Still may not techincally be the best car in the world (understandably so, with nearly 60 years of engineering improvement succeeding it), but it's just so nice to look at.

lol you got me beat. fastest thing i drove so far is my '95 Ford Tempo! by the way i did pop up from nowhere and yes i'm a massive auto enthusiast. a lot of you guys have pretty nice favorites (props to the dude with the pic of a Saleen S7R) but mine has yet to change (except when it recieved a minor tweak in 2006 that made me love it even more), it's none other than the good old Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 (verde ithaca body color please). 632 horsepower, 487 pounds of foot torque, 0-60 in 3.3 seconds, and a base price ranging from $312,000-$330,000 depending on your buy. for the smart ones, yes that is a picture of my NFS Pro Street LP640.

This is an open group but you have to get permission from the club starter or a founding member to join (that'll be me then, seeing as nobody else appears to be around). You've blatantly double posted to get yourself noticed but seeing as you're new here I'll let that one slide. Don't do it again though. Welcome to the club and have fun!

Like anyone here hasn't heard of the Veyron lol

LOL.

First off, car enthusiasts club. Would be kinda pointless if nobody even knew what a Veyron was.

Secondly, the Veyron isn't the most powerful car in the world anymore. Get up to date, man, for god's sakes.

It's the Melling Hellcat. It's currently in production but not yet on sale. It was built with the sole purpose to be the fastest street legal production car.

Anyone seen the Mini Clubman? It's the one with two doors on the back, kind of like a fridge-freezer.

Anyway, there's a reason that it's slogan is "The other Mini" -- because it's the Mini Cooper's ugly twin brother that was locked away in the attic for most of it's life, until one day the parents grew a conscience and let it loose on the world in all it's ugly glory, much to our dismay.

Every time I'm driving behind one on the road I want to vomit. ;P
