    Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3

    F50 sound impressive!

    Re: Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3

    I was routing for the GT2 but the straight line speed of the F50 and 40 was too much for the GT2. It looked as though the GT2 seemed to lose a bit of steam towards the end.

    Nice video though, thanks.

    Re: Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3


    Thanks Duncan for the video, one of the best I've seen.

    Ferrari did well starting from the back; I was routing for the Ferraris. (someone has to rout for the underdog).

    Ferrari has it all, track performance and beautiful looks.
    The only other beauty missing was the Testarossa.

    I expected the GT2 to be faster.
    F40 had the best lap time.

    Re: Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3

    that was cool. The ferrari's were supercars, whereas the gt2 is a production variant. The 355 was dragging.

    Re: Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3

    I wouldn't call the f355 road car being .265 of a second behind the stripped out Gt3's best lap "dragging".

    Very cool video.

    I was routing for the Ferraris too.

    Levels of performance keep on getting higher and higher; what's the fastest today is only adequate tomorrow. With Ferrari that point becomes irrelevant. They have the style, the passion, and that beautiful sound!

    Driving a Ferrari at the speed limit is more exhilarating than driving almost any other car at 150mph. Whether the 355 is a few tenths slower than the GT3 doesn't matter at all.

    I would say that Porsche builds a much better overall car, but the Ferraris have so many intangible qualities that can't be seen by simply watching a video for a few minutes.

    Still though, it's nice to see them clean up at the track. Thanks for posting.

    Re: Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3

    dragging was a relative term. Porsche is capable of making cars with those intangibles too.

    Re: Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3

    Just a question though, the Diablo in the video is a normal Diablo with cosmetic modifications correct?

    The rear reminds me of the Diablo GTR. Although this is impossible as the front is the standard Diablo.

    Good video! Thanks

    Re: Supercar battle: F50, F40, 993 GT2, DIablo, 996 GT3

    great vid! thanks. but i clearly saw some drivers much more agressive than others on the vid...no?

    there is another video with these cars where they test their 1/4 mile times...they don't mention it but I think the F50 has a Tubi exhaust just like this particular F40..

    F50
    11,109 204,90 kmh ( with a really bad launch)
    F40
    11,293 203.60 kmh (Tubi Exhaust 478PS)
    Diablo GT-R
    12,139 187.50 kmh
    993 GT2
    11,882 187,37 kmh (430PS)
    993 Turbo
    12,001 199,00 kmh (tuned; cams etc 530PS)
    996 GT3 MkI
    12,639 179,60 kmh stock

    P/W Ratio
    F50 2,37
    F40 2.58
    Diablo GT-R 2,89
    993 GT2 3,07
    993 Turbo 2,83
    no data for the GT3

    check out the difference between the GT2 and the Turbo...because the GT2 is much lighter, it can still outrun the modified Turbo...impressive!
