1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    He's also a corporate shill. He said he hates the Enzo because it only came with a paddle shifter, preferring a manual in a supercar, but then said he loves his SLR, which is an automatic. Of course, this is the same guy that showed up at the Benz gala dinner at Pebble Beach with Stirling Moss.
    And even Stirling Moss is not liking the SLR Stirling Moss edition!

    Not really. The two cars are nothing alike.

    You are definitely correct that there is not much car produced today remotely similar to McLaren F1, such special car, but maybe closest of remote similarity is Zonda [​IMG] I am excited for P11 project!

    What were your feelings on the differences in their handling? What did the Veyron feel like when you drove it compared to the F1? :p

    I think Clarkson does a great job of getting to the soul of most cars. It's not a purpose built car, and the fact that it does what it does is incredible.

    My feelings are that it pushes in the corners and understeers horribly [​IMG].

    Is being ugly a requirement for qualifying as a supercar?

    Something about these Paganis makes me think that being ugly isn't a requirement. But perhaps it's just this car.
