    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    Thanks!

    Makes me wonder even more why the 997 TT was not tested on the track.

    Good question. Someone should email Clarkson and ask him.

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    What amazed me watching this on TV last night was the apparent lack of speed of the car. It didn't look nearly as quick as it turned out to be on the flying lap - perhaps because it was so settled - I suppose thats a good thing

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    OMG!!! I almost soiled my pants, this thing is just so amazing!

    Must be killing you Mike ;-)

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    Same lap time as a Carrera GT. 6th in the list around the Top Gear airfield. It is an amazingly desirable car

    My wife and I watched it last night - she was totally overhelmed by its menacing beauty, the race-car noise it made and its blistering performance.

    I am so so lucky I married a petrolhead.

    I never have to watch soap operas on Sunday afternoons...we watch F1 together...

    Only a couple more days

    I loved the part in the video VS the Golf V GTI

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    The lp640 is one very fast car, to lap the same time as the much lighter Porsche GT is amazing.

    If only it had ESP. That would make it the perfect supercar.

    Does the CGT have ESP?

    I thought it has only traction control.

    It doesn't, and that's exactly what killed Ben.
    In any case, the point is moot, as I doubt I will be shopping in the hypercar range any time soon .

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    amazing vid, amazing car. thanks! the murci and the cgt both have traction control...

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    The above description certainly isn't a Porsche.Too bad she did not have input on your Porsche purchase. Otherwise, you would be driving something else.

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    Thanks for your unwanted input once again. Don't you have something better to do with your time?

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    TopGear track is very hp biased. The turns are remedially almost flat out, except for maybe one or two of them. Expect any high hp car to do well on this track (599gtb etc...)

    Sorry! Was late when I read that Thought you were speaking of the Murci, not the CGT.

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    ... and surely now he's laughing up his sleeve when he reads the reaction.

    Re: LP640 tested on Top Gear-vid

    Guys, cut Nick some slack! You know he just does it to make things interesting . In any case, Nick, keep doing it, just so I get a good laugh coming here .

    Nick, I know you were 'only joking' but I had rather expected you would have the good grace not to break the unsaid rule here of not making negative comments involving family members of people on rennteam. That wasn't a particularly noble act. I had expected more of you.

    Regrettably, you seized upon my wife's appreciation of the LP640 on TV and then manipulated it to serve your long-running hostility towards Porsche.

    It's one thing for her to appreciate a Lamborghini LP640 on a TV show but it's a different matter altogether choosing which car to buy. The decision obviously depends on a wider range of factors especially each potential buyer's individual needs.

    In our case, a Lamborghini Murcielago or LP640, even though they are excellent cars, was simply not suitable for our individual requirements at all whereas the 997S was ideal.

    As it happens, my wife was jointly involved in all aspects of our decision-making e.g. car, colour scheme, options etc. After all, she is a genuine car enthusiast just like you and me - so I would expect no less from her as a result.

    I know it must seem absurd to you how anybody could want a 911 given how terrible they are in your eyes. Well, my wife and I are extremely happy with our purchase so far.

    I would be grateful if, in future, you would kindly refrain from involving my wife directly or indirectly in your posts. Thank you.
