The theory of evolution by cumulative natural selection is the only theory we know of that is in principle capable of explaining the existence of organized complexity.

Check this out.

Factory Five, GTM Supercar

With a Corvette LS7 build (the Z06 engine) it'd have 505 HP and weigh 2250 lbs (dry, ~2400 w/all fluids). It'll do 0-60 about 3 seconds (that's Enzo-or-better time) and produce over 300 lbs of aerodynamic downforce at 150 mph.

:drive:

The rolling chasis costs just over $19,000 and it'll cost another 20-40k to finish it depending on how you build it. That's a true supercar for about what I paid for the 'Vette. (Some assembly required. :wink: ).

I ordered the free video.

If you saw it on Top Gear last week, WOW!

This is the first supercar that I MIGHT be able to drive without killing myself.

I did not, but it's probably on my TiVo.

I'd want one in flat black. It looks like a stealth fighter. I wonder if police radar can pick it up? :devil:

1200hp out of a Chevy V-8...impressive! A mere $1.1M. Get one, Bud! They're only making 5.
