won all 6 of 8 races in 1973 in Can-am and of course took the championship. Its all-conquering twin-turbo flat-12 engine produced a reliable 1,100 bhp at 7,800 rpm and 19 psi of boost. For short bursts, the pilot could command a staggering 1,500 bhp by turning up the boost to a piston-melting 32 psi with the twist of a knob. Accompanying all this power is the handling of an F1 car!

This car was raced for one season after which the Can-AM governing body had it banned because nothing could compete with it. Porsche withdrew from the Can-AM series and it promptly died.
You forgot to mention that it held the world’s closed course speed record

I once saw a Saleen S7. Race car though...
It was showing off at the northwest historics, Even upstaged a real GT-40.
Panteras also cause issues for me...

Just saw some pics of a Pininfarina re-bodied Enzo. Super nice looking. I'll try and find pics online.

Here's one. 0-60 in right at 3 seconds (admitted) 235-245mph

Not sure if this was posted yet but I don't feel like reading the whole thread. This is probable the most impractical and weirdest motorcycle ever but it has a Viper V-10 so it's OK. The best part about these is that if you shell out the half a million bucks to buy one of ten ever made they came missing pieces so that they are not drivable and are not road legal. They are sold as sculptures.

Anyone seen this?

It can go 0-60 in 2.9 Seconds and its faster than a Yamaha CBR 600 RR. You can also check it out on www.youtube.com just type in Honda Ariel Atom in the search... it has about a 10 minute video of the specs and a guy driving it and stuff....

I'm sorry, but when did Yamaha take over production of the CBR from Honda?

Oh, and that Camaro is back up for production. They're going to make it again. Official word from GM.

It's called the Tomahawk. They could never figure out how fast it'll go because no one was crazy enough to drive that fast! The history channel did a show on the history of the motorcycle once. The Tomahawk and Jay Leno's Y2K turbine motorcycles were in it.
