Seen one at work (2013 reg) and some looker, had a look on the google, cant imagine driving this on public roads with so much power available, surely pointless.

up to a ton in 6 seconds ffs

- 'most cetainly inspector, this is damn quick, want to hop in?

 

aside from being a bit pointless there is the small matter of being unable to enter your car with ever diminishing car spaces and due to sods law that states idiots will always park next to you no matter how far away an empty space you find.

Looks nice enough. Is there a diesel version available, or are buyers stuck with only an uneconomical petrol version?

This whole 'bursting into flames' thing is a big problem with all petrol cars... they really should have been banned decades ago. Won't someone think of the children?

not sure where you get Hyundai from, if they made a car that low to the ground it would probably collapse, i think the Mclaren looks good, its 6 years old still or so and looks as mad as ever which is always a sign of something special.

When you see them parked up near a Lambo aventador or Alfa 8 or Zonda, konnes or the multitude of other supercars that run around West London it looks decidedly ordinary...Especially when you start to see the scruffy Street parked kerbed wheels and shopping trolley damaged ones you know any special status has long gone. The original F1 decades older looks far more special.

A 65 reg Audi pulled up to me at lights this evening, having a feel it would try and edge ahead of me into my lane i slipped into S# mode - i wanted to be in that lane anyway.

 

I did take my next turn and the Audi never did edge past, nice effot though. Think it was a S3 as well.

Perhaps, but its still stonking fast and is meant to have unbelievable handling. Think it would hold its own against most of the big boys in the super car world.

 

I would like one of these bad boys myself if i had unlimited funds
