    Another Carrera GT injured -







    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    Ouch So was this a "second hand" CGT, I notice it has a Ferrari license plate frame

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    What happened? rear axle toast?

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    Looks like it slid from the right to the left. Hitting the curbs with left wheels first, damaging the rims, then sliding further with the rear, where the right rear wheel gets broken when it bumps into the curb... ouch... looks really expensive... and look at the broken brake disc... Another sad day. How come I have seen so few enzo's crashed? I'd preferd that!

    The Enzos stay in the garage, silly!

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    I know the car can be tuned for oversteer/understeer, but Clarkson did say it bites, and you just don't know when thats going to be. well I guess only professionals can make the full use of it....without crashing it

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    That hurts so much... my god Looks like someone felt too confident and turned TC off.

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    The power of this car is awesome. It requires constant diligence. A very serious car which a few talented owners can fully appreciate. The rest will end up like this if they try to go beyond their abilities. Driver aids will not bail them out.

    i dunno about that. i've already had mine oversteer (at decent speeds) and found it to be quite controllable. that said, it doesn't "seem" as progressive as a 911 for sure. the stradale is like the cgt as well so i'm figuring it's a mid engined/r compound on stradale - outer 1/3 r compound on cgt deal. much of the "problem" (if you want to consider it that) is that the limits are so very high on this car that when they are exceeded, things are moving pretty quickly. however, that wrecked black one looks more like someone had the TC turned off and was hammering it while turning to force oversteer or underestimated power on hand while hammering the throttle but not trying to force the oversteer. the car looks to have a dealer plate on it along with a ferrari of scottsdale plate frame which probably says all you need to know. this is probably more similar to the salesman joy ridden (crashed) ford gt in the back of autoweek not too long ago.

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    The same suspension setup?


    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    Ben I absolutely agree with you theory. Whereas the Ferrari CS may be easily provoked into oversteer, the CGT prone to do the same gets harder to handle when you have 612hp at your disposal. Lightning reactions and expert driving knowledge should set you right.

    Not the car for people who are looking for the fastest supercar...with a Porsche badge, this car is serious! And only the serious need apply.

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    Hey denn - just letting you know your sig might
    raise a few eyebrows with administration - Sooo yea

    well put nuberry

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    ouch my day is ruined

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    yeah mine too!! meh

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    It's just painful looking at it.

    What's the story anyway with test drives of the CGT? Does one have to sign an assumption of liability form before one can take it for a test drive?

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    Ouch! Any info?

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    Ben,

    have you driven your car on track already? Probs for getting somewhere near oversteer on common streets...

    I'd say that car was just fed up of having a Ferrari plate sticked to its butt!

    Track driving (hell even autocrossing with cones in a parking lot) voids the warranty in the US. So I won't ever be able to comment if the car is on the track. That said, I've experienced (enjoyed) lots of oversteer already.

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    Ouch...Poor Porsche...

    Re: Another Carrera GT injured -

    I can see how its easy to crash a 911 and the CGT makes the 911 feel like a dead snail so I'm not suprised at all to see wrecked CGTs.

    As Jeremy Clarkson said abou CGT :" You need to be awake to drive this fast".
