Mosc: I was just stating overall track records. Its hard for some race cars to break the 7 min mark.

Chris: I kinda doubt it, there is much better things out there than that car and the track is more car plus damn good driver to get it done. Not just car...

The atom v8 just took top gears lap record! That's betting a veyron, veyron SS and everything else they've ever tested. I'd love to see it at the track!

I liked the old atom. It cost ~$50k which made it a great value. The v8 one is about $200k and I gotta say, that's not much more car (even though it has like twice the power). It's not even thinkable anymore.

I didn't have trouble with my bowels, but I was shocked. It's no longer a car that I would ever think of getting as a toy. When my house is paid for, I can see a 50K toy. . . Not that much though. They said 150,000 pounds, and that's like 220-230-ish in dollars. That's nuts.

I also was a little perplexed when I read 5 speed. I think that's a typo.

Its hardly a car and you still need a damn good driver to keep it on the ring. Otherwise all that power to weight distribution is out the window. The Ring is a technical challenge like no other. Driving a F1 on it would take a crap load of skill and experience, let alone a Atom V8.
