Bob, I have a vehicle which can beat your CTS-V. Interested?

http://www.worldcarfans.com/109013016668/550hp-chevrolet-matiz-unleashed-by-car-enthusiasts






General Motors has no idea that their baby Chevrolet Matiz is now capable of slaying their greatest giant the Corvette. It's not an officially-manufactured car but it will take care of some serious supercars in any straight-line battle. Created by Fourdin Auto Sport founder, Yves Fourdin, and a few friends, this Matiz was the result of 1,500 hours of hard work by people who are not even engineers but motorsport enthusiasts. Best of all they used no computers for their achievement.

Using the Matiz as a base, Fourdin and his team installed a 7.0-litre V8 straight out of a Corvette Z06. It makes 550hp (404kW) to blast the Matiz from 0 - 100km/h in a swift 3.7 seconds. The 0 - 200km/h time is 10.94 seconds while terminal velocity is 260km/h (162mph).

No details on its track performance were released so there's no telling how it takes to corners, bar a glimpse of it taking that long curve on the video. The car was finished in August 2008 and is currently being shown at the International Racing Show Liège in Belgium.

Re: Bob Luts Officially Challenges Anyone to Race Against the CTS-V, Driven by Him!

RS4... :lmao:

You're gonna need to bring more to the table than that.



It was just talk at that point. Now it is official. They have selected a venue and they have posted an application for those who want to participate in the challenge.



Riiight...
Except Jalopnik won't be using the Merc. they took "The Truth About Cars" choice the new Jaguar XFR (yes they are also participating), needless to say TTAC is pissed.

even if Lutz comes close to winning against an uber expensive car its a win. everyone loved the g8 when it could lap the ring in 8.30s. at half the price its a winner i think. to bad they canned to sale of caddy's over her in OZ
