Since you are looking at around 250,000 British Pounds, I think I'll settle for getting beat by one car. That is close to Enzo league.

yeah, the price is insane.. But I guess if you want a fast 4 door that does over 200mph, this would be the way to go...

That is a sweet car for sure. Toying around at 170+ would be intense.
I wish the show TOPGEAR would run the V around their track. I like that show and would be curious what that Brit has to say. Also, I think the V lap time would be up there with the BIG $$$ cars.

That is because they are British and are pissed that they have to pay $90,000 for a car that we pay $50,000 for and they get their butts kicked when the have to pay the tax for a 5.7L motor.

topgear did review the V and the video is on the FAQ video library:

They didnt like all of the "dinging." Take it with a grain of salt because they need to make the show funny as well asn informative.

I think they just add XX seconds to the wet track time to give an idea of dry track times.. But I dont know how accurate that is..

I thought he was talking about when top gear tested the V on a wet track, and listed the time with their board comparing it to other vehicles.. they usually add a certain number of seconds to give an estimate of how the V would do on their track if the track was dry. (I cant remember how many seconds they add, so thats why I said XX seconds)
