    Some Additions :



    1.> On Sept. 13, 2007, the Shelby SuperCars' Ultimate Aero became the fastest production car in the world. The event took place on a temporarily closed, two-lane stretch of public highway in Washington State. In accordance with Guinness World Records' strict policies, the car had to drive down the highway, turn around, and make a second pass in the opposite direction within one hour.

    The Ultimate Aero posted 257.41 mph on the first pass and 254.88 mph on the second for an average of 256.18 mph. Official data were collected via a GPS tracking system from Austrian data acquisition company Dewetron. Guinness World Records later verified data for an official top-speed announcement on Oct. 9, 2007. At that speed the Ultimate Aero broke the official record held by the Koenigsegg CCR (242 mph) and the unofficial record (253 mph) held by Volkswagen's (VLKAY) $1.6 million Bugatti Veyron (BusinessWeek, 9/17/07).


    And the car could go even faster. NASA's wind tunnel testing facility in Langley, Va., found the Ultimate Aero to be aerodynamically stable at speeds up to 273 mph. It just ran out of road. "If there was additional straight pavement on which to accelerate, the top speed would have been considerably higher, so if anyone challenges our record there is tons left on the table," says Chuck Bigelow, the brave soul who piloted the Ultimate Aero on its record-breaking run.


    2.> In the bond flick the Aston Martin had been heavily modded and was named "Vanish" by MI6 engineer "Q".

    #9 Lamborgini Murcielago is my favourite supercar.

    I drive mine on the weekends mostly.


    If I feel need for a bit more speed I take my fxx out for a spin.


    These are expensive so I don't drive them daily. My daily
    driver is a lowly Diablo.

    was drooling over the listings given at Motorcars of Las Vegas, NV Dealer Used Cars - Home. sigh.... i really like some of the classics they still have in mint condition, like the Dodge Charger and the Thunderbird convertible!

    and btw, the inside of the engine bay of the SSC Aero looks like alien technology, literally like the inside of an UFO!:47:

    :lol:

    let me share something with u guys. about a week ago i saw a car near my college. it looked like a chev camaro ss with the long hood space and all. the car even had a modded hood. but the name of the car was HM (Hindustan motors), the company behind ambassadors. they are also the current distributor for Lancer Evo and cedia cars. Anyway, at the back and side of the car, where car name is written, GT90 was written.
    Can anybody tell me what car it was ? With the HM logo it looked like a vintage car but it had the looks of a muscle car.

    Leo, with the HM logo I can only imagine someone's modified a Contessa to look like a Ford GT90 and put a salvaged badge on it.

    Not to say there AREN'T any classic muscle cars in India, there's several in Mumbai.

    there's a lot of exotic owners in my city...Bangalore baby!

    No money

    Loans are still not cheap and high down payment will reduce my liquidity. I want to buy a good car.

    No harm in dreaming as long as you don't keep dreaming only. You can do something spectacular only if you dream about it.

    Dream with eyes wide open.

    A toss between Innova / Corolla Altis / Civic. I am aiming for April. Hope to have some money to spare at that time.

    I have an extremely strong intution that you are going to get money from very unexpected sources... in days to come.


    A beamer may be? or a merc on the cards?

    Hanumaan ji is kind of impressed with me these days and I am going to the mandir tommorow ... will say a prayer for you

    Thank you, Admin. While a beemer/merc will be rand to own, it will be a headache to own. Even a small scratch will give a minor heart attack.

    I do not intend to sell/exchange my Santro. I wish to keep the small car for city life.

    The dillemma is like this:

    a) Innova makes most sense - one because it is diesel and two it can carry 7/8 people. So per seat cost of Innova (12L in Pune) is 1.5~1.7L. Daily running costs will be lower although there will be some major costs during engine overhauls. I expect to keep the car for 6/7 years and looking at my previous car ownerships, I will not cross 70K miles during the period.

    b) Corolla Altis or Civic will make a statement. The comfort will be much higher. The differential cost between Innova and Altis is just 1.25L. Corolla is cheaper to Civic by about 46K in Pune. The new corolla, in spite of being latest redesign, still looks like a girl next door to Bipasha Basu.

    c) The dealer of Toyota in Pune was our neighbour for 10+ years - recently moved to his own palatial bunglow. He has offered me more discount than standard. Also the Toyota showroom is walking distance from my home. If I buy a Toyota vehicle, I can just drop it at the showroom and it will be delivered to me at my convinience. Comparatively, the Honda service center is 16 km away and I have to cross the entire heart of the city in heavy traffic. But as I said, Civic is so much more appealing.

    you have many different reasons to choose the cars of your choice, and each reason is good and valid, you seem to be in a stuck situation J4K, i know i would be, how will you decide now?

    Last time he had his mind set on Innova , cause it was big and had too much space for all family members and comfort. I like innova too, dont know y some people dislike it.

    On the other hand a CIVIC is too much of a car. With a lil customization ( side skirts and HID Conversion Kits : I m not sure if CIVIC comes with it like Laura ) it looks out of the world.

    Oh! I am rather happy that I don't have to take a decision right now coz I don't have spare cash right now. Also expecting some interest rates dropping. As I said in my previous post:

    a) If I go by the head, it will be Innova
    b) If I go by the heart, it shall be Civic
    c) Altis is somewhere in between.

    There is one thing about the Sedans though - the ride comfort is higher because of the lower posture.

    There is one more thing that is worrying me. The Innova was introduced sometime in 2002. So it is due for an upgrade soon. I would rather prefer to have a new model. Does anyone have any news on this?

    On a side note, the thread is going totally offtopic. Should I split the non-relevant stuff into another thread?

    Actually, In this context of cars prototype means something else.
    When car companies design new cars they first build one or two
    as a concept verification. The see if this turns out as expected
    and show it around. Then if they decide to go into mass production
    they manufacture lots of those cars. The first cars they built
    is the prototype.

    So in this context, the cars I posted above are not 'prototypes'
    but 'scale models' of the original cars. A prototype Lamborghini murcielago
    probably will go for millons of dollars ;-)

    When car companies design new cars they first build one or two
    as a concept verification. The see if this turns out as expected
    and show it around. Then if they decide to go into mass production
    they manufacture lots of those cars. The first cars they built
    is the prototype.

    exactly .. this is actually what a prototype is ... not only for cars but for everything ... thats why i provided the link and kept it simple in my words ... prototyping is also a common software development process model ... where you keep building upon the basic prototype

    prototype is not always the real thing, well yeah in context of cars it may be. but what about when architects wants to build a huge complex, they make a small prototype.

    Nope, they don't make a prototype. They make a 'scale model'

    a "scale model" is generally termed as "prototype"
