    This thread is in serious need of a few real bikes. Here is just one example of the great bikes that comes out of dc cruisers.

    Bikes are OK, but I never had that much fascination with them for some reason. Now, cars on the other hand...

    Huh? That's the door!:rolleyes:

    Do you recognise that car, BTW? Do you know you are in the presence of greatness and genius and perfection?

    Curious, that car is junk.

    Bugatti Veyron would leave it for dust!

    C'mon. I love the Veyron too, but it's just too bulky and not nimble enough for real drivers. OK, it's got bragging rights for power, acceleration and top speed, but I bet the F1 would smoke it round a proper circuit.

    Besides, the F1 was made with no compromises - I'm sure you know even the engine bay was lined with gold to reflect heat. The F1 also is RWD, like a proper sports car ought to be, not an AWD mammoth like the Veyron. :biggrin:

    The thing which bugs me about cars like the Veyron and the F1 is that they've just had so much money thrown at them. Gold lined engine bays? That's not engineering, that's being ridiculous! Sure, they're competent, but completely unaffordable. If you're going to ogle at a vehicle it may as well be something which is within your grasp.

    Now a Caterham CSR260, 0-60 in 3.1 seconds, will go round corners much faster than the Veyron, and costs about the same as a Mondeo. Plus it looks far better than most cars costing 3 times as much.

    What intrigues me about the F1 is that it was built with no compromises whatsoever. The gold in the engine bay was simply another aspect of Gordon Murray's fastidious genius. In any case, you were getting more than your money's worth, if I'm not mistaken, the company made a loss on every F1 they sold.

    If you want to talk track day specials, there are other cars that excite me far more than the Caterhams or Lotus Super Seven inspired specials. The Tiger series of sportscars is even quicker and cheaper (if memory serves). The Radical SR3 is a cool looking car that's basically an all out race car that's road legal in some places. Then you have cars like the Ultima GTR which are slightly more fleshed out street legal race cars.

    If you want to get slightly more refined, go with the Noble.

    If you want to go completely the other way and get a near go-kart, get an Ariel Atom.

    The possibilities are endless.:biggrin:
