    I just think that if you're in the market for an exotic car that turns heads (besides being a performance beast), you should differentiate yourself from other exotic cars.. The Enzo looks vastly different than the Murcie, The Porsche GT looks different than the Koenigsegg. Like the poster said on the originating thread, it looks like a cross between a Diablo and and a Koenigsegg. Even the Zonda F has a distinct look. While this car looks exotic, it takes quite a bit of the design cues from others exotic car manufacturers that have their own unique look. You can readily identify a Ferrari, or a Lamborghini, or a Porsche, just by it's abstract shape.. This car seems, IMHO, just a visual jumble of exotic pieces.

    If I were looking for an exotic, it would have to be over 200g (which this is), have awesome specs (which this does), is in fairly limited production (again, this has it), and looks unique (which this doesn't, to me, unfortunately). I'm sure this car will sell out, just for the fact that it's one of the only American supercars (like the Ford GT, which is sweet too).

    They don't really say.. But SSC is in the habit of making all their cars from scratch (building their own motors, frames, and bodies). Ya know, I think I'm confusing SSC with Superformance (www.superformance.com).

    superb reply.

    From a side profile, it is very similar to the murci. However, from the front, it's not. Although, this if the only angle that doesn't immediately excite me. The front design isn't up to par with the rest, IMO

    what the problem? If I recall, G-tech's have been proven to give accurate 1/4 mile times by several people; track tested. The MPG they give, however, is usually too high.

    i just figured with so much money going into such an exotic performance-oriented car, they'd use something more precise than a G-tech. I'm not sure if they have improved over the old ones, but i've read that they have been known to be a little quirky. Even still, backing it up with real-world data wouldnt be a bad thing.
