Love the sig by the way, Jamie/Gregg....It took me a while to notice the sidelights, lol
you have the trouble to spell the k......swede invention too!!!
in a car like the fighter (front engine, RWD id prefer a heavier rear than a near 50 50) and i spelt 'tires' so the foriegners can understand
oh and thanks for commenting on the sig!

I see where you're coming from with that setup in that case! It wasn't so much as I couldn't spell it (although I can't, from memory, lol), it was more of a piss take on TG, and the fact that I couldn't be bothered to check its spelling, lol

the more 1000hp cars are released, the more i wonder how many will have gotten into crashes. what the motor industry doesnt seem to understand is that most people who buy these monsters dont know how to drive them properly. the Ferrari Enzo already has a reputation, at least 3 have been crashed at high speeds that i know of. and that only had 650 hp

if you want a Bristol, the people at Bristol cars vet you before ou buy one! hey will say wether you can handle one or not, because on their records, in their existence in car manufacture, none of their cars have crashed!

I believe to own an Enzo (heard it somewhere?), one would have to posses a racing license....which would infact say that these individuals do infact know how to drive

I don't know about the racing license thing...but...Ferrari chose who they sold the Enzo to.

....Ferrari chose who they sold the Enzo to. I assume that most of the Enzo customers are experienced supercar drivers. An automobile accident can happen to anyone. Also, most of these supercar manufacturers give a brief lesson on how to handle the car...so their customers aren't completely in the blind, even though I believe that most people interested in buying a SUPERcar have some experience with powerful vehicles. Supercar crashes are over exposed and the frequency of the crashes is probably exaggerated because of the amount of press a supercar crash gets. Everytime an Enzo has crashed, I've read about it. I haven't heard of any Veyron crashes.

I don't know what you expect of these supercar companies. How do you expect these companies to stay profitable AND build un-crashable supercars? Do you want them to screen their customers? What if you got rich, wanted a Lambo, and they told you..."nah, you ain't no f*ckin' Schumacher, we only sell to folks with a Schumacher-like background....". I don't know what you expect of these people, but whatever it is, it is ridiculous.

Oh, and power isn't the only factor that contributes to a dangerous car. I'm pretty sure that most people are less like to crash in a Veyron or an Enzo than in a Ferrari F40 or Lamborghini Countach. There were probably way more F40 and Countach crashes than Enzo and Veyron crashes combined...but back then they didn't have "exotic-car-crashes.com" to show you EVERY ****ING ONE.

Sissy.

Prince Naseem completely wrote off his SLR McLaren, he was branded suicidal by the judge who sentenced him for 15months!

When you were selected to buy an enzo or an f50, it wasn't like they just sent one to your house.

They took you on this huge factory trip and let you drive the car on european roads and I'm sure they offered driving lessons.

I believe a requirement was that you had to own other ferraris.
