    Wasn't this ages and ages ago?

    EDIT - actually they've just shaved a little off their own previous record.

    Not bad, but it looks like a cheap plastic car a guy with a beard built in his garage.

    Whereas the Mclaren F1 looked... like a genuine supercar.

    Fair enough its not exactly perfect supercar looks, still a great idea and they make the assembly part sound easy

    ye but the 600,000 you save could be spent on a porsche carrera and almost a mclaren slr, and you have 3 amazing cars.

    it does look fugly but for 30k you have an amazing track beast. that can and has won quite a few events.

    Thats as maybe but they talking about world records for things, although even the Veyron might have trouble beating that 0-60 time.
