Comparisons are just people showing off their knowledge of car design aspects, sometimes it is annoying tho
Jordan Jackson Aug 06, 2012
And comparisons ARE opinions
Jordan Jackson Aug 06, 2012
Get over the comparisons guys, if you can't handle them then stop reading them, this is a place to post opinions after all

Puts this brand in the same class as DeLorean
Chris O'Brien Aug 07, 2012
the absolute worst rims ever. looks like they came off a k-car.
Adithya Chandrasekhar Aug 06, 2012
It would look a lot better if it were lower
Abraham Mendoza Aug 06, 2012
If you really think it looks like a F50, because F40s had rectangular spoilers, then you're out of your mind.
Matt Piccolo Aug 06, 2012
An I the only one who sees f40/f50 in the spoiler/ air vents behind the wheels
Inderjot Sidhu Aug 07, 2012
It's hideous. Like when I scalped my hairs.
Paul Trahan Aug 07, 2012
It has more in common with Lamborghini than most realize. Keep on reading.
Pi Ka Chu Aug 07, 2012
It was voted worst car in the century by topgear
Andrew McNeal Aug 06, 2012
It's like the hipster of cars, it had Lambo doors before anyone really called them "Lambo doors".
Jordan Jackson Aug 06, 2012
Of course, it had to have Lambo doors... Lol

J. Clarkson seemed a bit biased towards European cars though. But I guess nobody would have a 100% neutral opinion.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 06, 2012
And called a lot of cars the best.
Matthew van der Linde Aug 06, 2012
To be fair, clarkson has called a lot of cars the worst car in the world
Description: Megatech shut down production, and it has since been reacquired by Wiegert, who was said to be planning another model, called the WX-8. The car was supposed to produce 1,850 horsepower and achieve a t...

Though I guess it all depends on how big you want to make it, and how much fuel you want to force into it.. Those dragsters can make a crazy amount of power
Joe Fats Harper Aug 07, 2012
Seems like hype to me.. I could claim to be "working on" a car with 2500 horsepower, and it doesn't really mean anything
Dan Bousquet Aug 07, 2012
1850 hp and only 275 (lol). the agera does that with 600 fewer hp. unless its just throwing that power away, it should be able to go faster the that
Malachi Monteiro Aug 06, 2012
1,850HP, holy shit
Paul Trahan Aug 07, 2012
Only Agessi's caught fire and to be fair he nagged Vector so much that they sent him his car but it still needed work done to it. It was stupid on Vector's part to send him an incomplete car.
Janak Solanki Aug 07, 2012
I like this body style the best
Chris O'Brien Aug 07, 2012
before or after it caught fire?
Abraham Mendoza Aug 06, 2012
See, those had Vette engines that could push 1000 hp. Fastest car in its time.
Description: Vicious accusations are made of Andre Agassi and Megatech boss Tommy Suharto, blaming them for Vector's misfortune. To be fair, Suharto has been convicted of a number of crimes, including graft, ...

Moe Sargi Aug 06, 2012

Abraham Mendoza Aug 06, 2012
