By your definition a toyota avensis would be a supercar aswell.
How about the batmobile?

Noone is disputing that... in fact, I only ride german and italian street bikes. I currently ride a BMW k1200rs and I'm looking at either an aprilia RSV 1000 R or BMW s1000r in the next few months. Both my dad and uncle got me hooked on BMWs early on.

What I think some people are trying to say is that there are a few world-class cars available outside Europe. True a lot of my fellow americans have blinders on, in regards to going fast in a straight line vs going fast and making something other than left turns. I do believe that's going to begin changing soon, with the new F1 track of the americas. I literally live within an hour's drive and believe me, I'm STOKED.

Anyways, carry on.

Jammin X2 (w/my Clockworks Argus) = good ole Shelby Cobra, a little out-dated, way over-powered, but still competitive with some of the best out there

I know this is about buggies, but I have to throw my truggy in here

Jammin X2 (w/my custom chassis) = the Factory Five Roadster (modern Cobra), still old-school, but updated with modern technology and very fast....if I do say so myself

Of course this is all my personal opinion, so easy on the bashing

Lets face it F1 has been tried time and time again in the US but will never succeed because the US audience/spectator wants to see contact, which is why NASCAR and INDY (open wheel nascar) is so popular.

That's a good one But I disagree, F1 will be a big hit here in the USA as long as they bring F2 and F3 The only bad thing is it only puts on a show one time a year,as for Nascar and Indy are here all over the states.

here's an idea for this thread....BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO NAME A SUPER CAR, GO TO SUPERCARWORLD.COM AND SEE WHAT IS CONCIDERED A SUPER CAR TO THE REST OF THE WORLD THAT DOESN'T LIVE BY AN INTERNET DICTIONARY!!!! it may just surprise you about what is concidered a super car....like i said, it's just an idea to bring things back to fun on this thread instead of taking jabs at people/regions/countries ect....plus i'm sure everyone would learn something new or see something they haven't seen, i know i did!!!!



.......just an idea.......
