    8.4 L V10 makes 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, the most torque of any naturally-aspirated production engine. Launch control is new, as is a GTS package which features power options and leather everything interior.

    It's polished aluminum, also available in gloss or matte black. Base model will be five-spoke, the GTS will be the above-pictured split six-spoke, and the SRT track package will get its own unique superlight wheels.

    Edit: More power and less weight over the old Viper means this new one has a better power-to-weight ratio than a Corvette ZR1 or a Lambo Aventador..

    The GTS package includes a Harman Kardon 36 volt, 18 speaker sound system - side exhaust and windows down be damned, you're gonna hear it:

    I'm happy they put the emergency brake towards the passenger side. In the past Chrysler has screwed up in that regard.

    That is a cut-down (really cut-down !) BMC mini (or one of the many badge-engineered variants). The donor car was designed by Alec Issigonis, was one of the first truly efficiently-packaged FWD cars, and the predecessor to many a FWD "hatch". Put a hotted up Cooper S engine into something that small and light and you could have some fun (and probably scare yourself witless as well).

    At yesterday's Gran Turismo Nurburgring supercar meet, one of the owners (not a pro or amateur driver, just a car owner) drove his Koenigsegg Agera R to 250 mph on the main straight.

    True story: Maybach is offering a $100,000 instant rebate on the purchase of any Maybach through the end of the year, possibly the largest rebate offer in history.

    Oh Hell No!!!!

    Will that abomination go away if I throw some Holy Water on it? A company known for making Super Cars that push the envelope of performance, coming out with an SUV?? Whoever thought that up, should be fired! . . . After being brutally beaten with a rubber hose.

    I'd be a lot more comfortable with it if it were the new LM 002; in many ways it's inevitable that they have at least one SUV - Porsche's Cayenne by itself represents half of all Porsche sales, so there's no way any manufacturer could just overlook the segment (which is ironic since this SUV will be built on the Cayenne platform, it will actually draw off some Porsche buyers..)

    I saw the LM002 at Pike's Peak Hill Climb in the late 80's,
    think it was one of the first in the US.

    ...it would have been fast if it weighed 2500 lbs. less

    Nope! More along the lines of they made the same mistake already, and now should know better. Should have learned from the last time. But here they are, doing it again. It's one thing if someone messes up because they honestly don't know any better. Quite a bit different though if they do.

    Yup . . . Plenty of sad, pathetic, wanna-bees out there who would shake in their boots if they climbed into a real Lambo. They tend not to be very forgiving if you make a mistake. Requires some real skill to drive one properly. With an SUV, all you need to do is go in a straight line. The adult equivalent of bolting on training wheels to a child's Schwinn.

    11.1@112 is unbeatable against those 2006 models, but don't try it against the current crop of supercars. I'd still go for one though, there definitely need to be more electric track toy cars..

    Edit: Now that I look it up, the Porsche can manage a 11.2 second run, but only from an almost impossible perfect launch from a dead stop; that's probably why the Porsche driver opted for the rolling start, but it's ultimately slower that way.
