Similar shape to the Saleen S7....this is all good and well makin production cars that are quick...but surely wouldnt it be a better idea to allow F1 cars to be the quickest cars once again...an F1 car bein beaten by a Veyron or this new Barabus is ridiculous...if anyones gonna crash..its more likely gonna be the Millionaire with one of these cars...than a fully fledged professional racing driver!!

FIA need a kick up the backside whippy

F1 could easily be faster if the regulations allowed, remember an F1 car is a 2.5 - N/A - Imagine what they could do with turbos, and more capacity - an F1 car is also slowed down considerably by downforce.

As has been shown in the past, high speed is very dangerous in a competitive environment.

TBH Though I think the technology that has allowed F1 cars to be as fast as they are with what they can use has led to these supercars - if the regs where lifted on F1, Id hate to imagine what the teams would come up with over the winter, but I bet it would knock the socks off any production car cool

still like to see it done..mainly cos everyone keeps sayin "oh oh oh..this can out accelerate an F1 car"...so what....give the F1 teams the leway to be allowed to experiment...and im sure wed have cars racin at over 300 mph....weve seen it with the top fuel dragsters.....im sure it could be done..very expensive.......but would be class
