Sweet. Now, if enough of us sell our 'Treps, we can buy one of those, when (well, if, techincally) it evenutally goes into production, have the official DI.net supercar. Hell, I'd be willing to do it.

I'm glad that they are doing extensive testing before anything serious goes on...to perfect the car basically, if your going to price it that high it better whoop some ass, which I have no doubt it will...and I know that they are going to shoot right at the Enzo on this one...I have a feeling they'll beat it.

But......when you are paying over 200k for a car you are paying for the name. I would rather pay for an Enzo than for an ME412

No your paying for the performance, screw the name. If I can smoke a Ferrari, Lambo, or anything else you can throw at it, let it be a Chrysler.

I don't see much use for it or any so-called supercars. You can't drive it on a public road. You can probably race with it. But then again, who's crazy enough to wreck a car like that in a race? You'd have to baby it. Cars like that are only made for bragging rights by rich people who can afford it, and who aren't likely to be pro racers.

Me, I'd rather buy a corvette or camaro, and tune it up with aftermarket parts. You'd get just as much performance, and you can also drive it on the road, and race it in your free time.

You can drive it on a public road. Same with an Enzo, Lambos, and Ferraris.

I know they're street legal. But who will drive a $600 000 car over pot holes and speed bumps, through dirt, rain and snow, side swiping pickup trucks, and put dents into the car just to buy groceries from the supermarket? Not to mention you're restricted to the speed limit. It won't be any more fun than driving your dad's 7 year old grand marquis.

People with these cars drive them on weekends, sunny days, on the best streets. If you have one of these cars, you must live in a nice area with good roads, so go figure.

And who cares if it's a Chrysler, if I can win the races with those Lamo's, I'll take the Chrysler (and because it's a Mopar).

Last time I checked most owners don't take their cars to the supermarket, or use them as daily drivers. And that also goes along with Corvettes and Vipers too. And who isn't restricted to the speed limit?

The speed limit is only a suggestion ;)
