1966 Lincoln Continental. Some custom jobs make them them look so sexy.

Hell, even when stock, they are sexy.

 

One day... I will have one...

I may sound stupid here, but this is the car that I would want.

My dream car been in love with this car ever since i was a little kid the GTR R34 hints the psn name 


Move to Japan and you can get one for $10k USD. Or wait another 10 years until R34's are 25 years old to be federally exempt from the current importation rules and regs.

Meh, I don't like the Bugatti Veyron very much. Why? (Sorry, Short rant coming up) It's not as great as people say it is. 16 cylinders and 4 turbos is just silly. It weighs nearly 2 tons. It is crazy expensive. It's not a "driver's car".

 

Which is to say, that's just why I don't like it. In my opinion, if you like a 260 MPH luxury cruiser, the Veyron's for you. However, if you want a 260 MPH driver's car (as is with me), the SSC Ultimate Aero is for you. Or maybe the Venom GT, if you like kit cars.

 

And besides, I think the Ultimate Aero is more of an engineering masterpiece than the Veyron. The Ultimate Aero has more horsepower than the Veyron SS, but accomplises this with half the cylinders, half the turbos, and at half the price of the standard Veyron. It's engine is also nearly 2 liters smaller and the car weighs over half a ton less.

 

If SSC fulfills their promise by making the Tuatara (pronounced too-uh-TAR-uh), that car will be epic. 1350 BHP at nearly 280 MPH, anyone?

 

sscgallery_g15-8


And Hennessey just built a similar car.... Venom GT. With an unofficial speed of 260mph using a stretched Lotus chassis and a Corvette V8 with twin turbo's.....




SSC's Aero was similarly built. Used a twin-turbo Chevy V8 with LOADS of boost. The Veyron's engine is not even stressed.
The Veyron also has 4 turbo's because with 2 turbos, there would be a lot of lag because of the necessary physical size they need to be to be able to handle the amount of airflow both in and out the engine is obscene.
They Veyron's W16 also makes closer to 3000hp in the most ideal conditions.... but it "makes" 1000hp, as the rest of the power is lost due to the insane heat energy the engine produces.

Audi had to rebuild their engine test center when they found out that their exhaust air vents were too small because it would build up in the engine dyno room and drastically lower the engines total output.

Yes, its nice that you can do "more with less".... but just remember, the smaller engine making more power is more stressed than a fully engineered engine that can handle the task and do so for the next 40+ years. You're not going to engineer a Chevy V8 to do that unless you contract Chevy to create a similar engine.

ANYONE, can put loads of boost into a car and make 1000+hp these days.... there are 3.0Liter 6 cylinder engines making that power now. The question falls into, how long will it last.

 

 

The Tuatara is a LONG way off from actually realizing its lofty goals. They want to use the same Veyron type of engineering, so its going to cost A LOT.

All internal combustion engines waste a lot of power through heat. The Veyron and Ultimate Aero both "make" over 3000 bhp, with over half of that lost through heat. Less of it is lost in the Ultimate Aero, however. The Ultimate Aero only has 8 radiators, compared with the Veyron's 10.

 

It's also worth note that, although the 2007 Ultimate Aero uses a modified Chevrolet engine, the 2009 Ultimate Aero and Tuatara use an SSC built engine, truly completing it as a "production car" rather than a kit/tuner car, such as the Venom GT.

 

Also, SSC recently tested their 6.9-liter V8 for the Tuatara, and found it is "easily capable of over 1700 HP" but was turned back to 1350 bhp for safety and reliability.

 

I don't hate the Veyron. I just don't like it nearly as much as the SSC Ultimate Aero (2009 MY, preferably). I'm sure the Veyron is a much more comfortable ride than the Ultimate Aero. But in terms of speed and performance, the Ultimate Aero annihilates it. Like I said, if you want a 260 MPH luxury cruiser, get a Veyron. If you want a 260 MPH driver's car, get an Ultimate Aero.
