Anyone think a 7 minute Nurburgring Lap time is on the cards?

I am interested in learning more about the 1 piece carbon fibre chassis, I think it's revolutionary.

Are production cars going to start selling anytime soon?

Shouldn't damage the CF tub as it doesn't extend all the way back to the rear, but it still won't be cheap if an SUV hits up the exhaust and the air brake...

I can't tell you how much I want an F1. Ultimate dream car

With that said, I think some really minor cosmetic modifications would make this car look a whole lot meaner, e.g. losing that one dividing "blade". Also, I really don't think repairing this car would be too bad. It seems to me (from casual) observation that they built this car with a mind for easy disassembly and reassembly.

Did anybody catch if this car would be awd or rwd? I'd suspect rwd but awd could make this car epic.

its got to be RWD........and that pic above makes it look 100000x times better than those "sketches" posted earlier.


I will take both please, thank you.

I don't care what anyone says, I WANT ONE!!! Yes the design is rather understated, but that makes me like it that much more. Simple elegance is a wonderful thing. I hate nothing more than when a company goes and starts tossing tackied on spoilers and ground effects at a perfectly beautiful car. If there is anywhere that a car should make a loud statement it is in the performance.

Yea not crazy about the design either, especially for that huge price. But sure am crazy about the dynamics, engineering and for sure the performance.
