Porsche's Carrera GT

"The release of Porsche's Carrera GT, which will challenge the $2 million Ferrari Enzo for the title of the world's fastest car, has been delayed because one of its most experienced test drivers says it is too powerful for mere mortals."

"Power and acceleration figures are yet to be announced but Rohrl gave a clue to the engine's awesome performance, saying that the 5.5-litre V10 produces 450Nm of torque from as little as 2000rpm."

Guess what the XR6T does the same 450NM at 2000rpm :)

proves have good of an engine the XR6T is :)

Yeah, but its blown and thats where it maxes out. The Barra 240t is a great engine, but........

Broken diffs, burnt out clutches, rusted shells. Yep, were in Kingswood Country.

Rohrl, who has been testing the Carrera GT in prototype form for the past three years, said it is so powerful that it spins the rear wheels in each gear up to fifth in its six-ratio box.
XR6T is good, but not that good
