    Spine tingling and tear generating. It's just so beautiful.

    I was curious, so I looked up the top speed of the T.50 and it's 226mph, not bad....also realizing that the 241mph attempt of the F1 had I believe some gearing changes to allow it to go that fast.

    T.50?

    I'd prefer a Pontiac T-37.

    I donít like the name T50 and I donít like its butt. Otherwise, I think itís definitely an improvement over the McLaren F1.

    Henry Catchpole is my favourite car journo, so I was delighted to see the T.50 review included him and the F1 also!

    I don't think it was a gearing change per se, ISTR they did a run, hit the rev limiter, and then raised the limiter by 300rpm or so (from 7,500 to 7,800 perhaps) to hit the 241 max.

    Ah ok, it's been ages since I watched the top speed run.

    One thing I love on the T.50 is the new engine...sounds amazing and revs to nearly 13,000 RPM's...so nice

    Man alive, just watched that finally and the noise from that T.50 is spectacular. So is the F1's, but that banshee-like wail is something else.
