NISSAN has done it!

Depends GREATLY on the definition of "production"

There were 100 Mclaren F1's produced (50 for the track, and 50 for the street) - 0-60 in 3.0 (in 1992 no less).

For the fastest, I think it'll be quite a while before ANYONE tops one of these:


(but Koenigsegg is getting darn close - supposedly the cops ticketed one in Texas doing 242)

And the 16 year old McLaren F1 241mph is nothing to be scoffed at...


And then there was the Lancia Delta S4 that did 0-60 in 2.5 on pavement, and I thought there once was a story about a 2.8 second 0-60 on gravel from one of the Group B cars, but I haven't been able to find any confirmation (might have been in Too Fast To Race documentary - any rally dorks around?) - but those were purpose built rally cars, not production.

Not taking anything away from the GTR - that thing is impressive...

(and less than a 10th of the cost :D)

It certainly appears to have good numbers and cool technology. However when I saw one in person I wasn't taken by it's appearance.

I have always loved sleeper cars.....never was a huge fan of wings and wedges etc etc...always prefered the tamer appearance hiding an absolute beast.

On another note concerning the group B rally cars...they were awesome...but take a look at this video of a twin engined DAF truck overtaking a group B car in the Dakar rally.....

I dont get it, I guess. All that performance that will go pretty much unused on the street and the looks of an average Japanese sports car. For that kind of $$ I would stick with the awsome Corvette Z06 or better yet the 2009 ZR-1 with their meager performance specs ;) and first class styling. But I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I admitt the Nissan and others have outstanding performance.

But I find myself drawn back to the styling of the 1960s

Now the muscle car era cars ...suck for handleing and are inferior to about any modern car in that measurement.

But the lines and curves of the GT40 :wub: ...and those puppies run too!!

I am unimpressed with modern styling...with very few exceptions.

a few I love

61-69 vette

67-69 camaro

65-70 mustang


Shelby Cobra

and several others...but all seem to be 1960s :blink:

I must be caught in a Time Warp :unsure:
