Mclaren F1 - The greatest supercar ever built?

Right so basically this post is to find out your opinions on what you think is the greatest supercar ever built.
Mine personally has got to be the Mclaren F1.




Now this car was built 19 years ago and yet still is one of the fastest supercars out there, and still one of the very fastest accelerating! The Mclaren F1 has a top speed of 231 Mph, restricted by the rev meter at 7500rpm. The true top speed of this car was reached in 1998 by the five year old XP5 prototype. The car was raced down a 9KM stretch and managed to reach a top speed of 243mph!
Now despite the fact this car was built 19 years ago, car companys today still find it a near impossible task to reach this unbelieveable speeds! Also because of how extremely light this car is, it can go from 0-60mph in just 3.2 seconds!

So I thought I'd post a video of this car in action.
Now although the Mclaren doesn't win, it still gives the Bugatti a hell of a run for its money. And just bare in mind the Mclaren has 627hp compared with the Bugatti's 1000.
So you do you believe do be the fastest supercar ever built?

  6. Hell, I'm drooling all over the keyboard!
    But I guess that no matter how fast a car is, it will never be fast enough. People will keep on building cars that are faster and faster and faster until the moment they actually figure out how to teleport. Then, there will be no need for cars.
    :(
