What Car's This? Advanced Version

Sun Jul 13, 2003 3:36 am

Seems like the first one was a little too easy, only the advanced one took a little to solve and so I made this harder contest with some more difficult pictures from the same site:

This one was a little harder... but not by much.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

1. Ferrari 308 GTS, like the one Magnum PI drove.
2. Lamborghini Countach, the wheels are a dead giveaway.
3. Lotus Esprit.
4. Panoz Roadster.
5. McLaren F1.
6. M-B AMG SL55.
7. Lister W12. (I know this one from GT2)
8. Nissan 300ZX.
9. BMW M3... the M badge on the engine was a dead giveaway.
10. I am almost certain that this poor wreck is a Ferrari F40.

The 5th one is the Mercedes Mercedes CLK-GTR which took off during Le Mans 98.

The 6th one is an old SL, but it doesn't look like an AMG (look at the wheels).

I think
2nd one , is a Diablo not a Countach....im quite certain
5th one is definately a CLK-GTR, NOT a Mclaren F1 ...look at the wheels and the doors and whole frame
6, Its the old SL, probably SL500
10, cant say for sure which Ferrari it is....may well be the F40

Yeah, number 5 is definantly one of the Mercedes that took off during Le Mans. I seem to remember there were 2 of those that went high flying (Hmm - I wonder if a photo of that would be accepted on A.net  Laugh out loud). One did a double-salto and ended up in the middle of some trees - but what about the other one?

I got a video of a porsche GT1 taking off at Road Atlanta, doing one salto and ending up on a wall...

CLK-GTR's right, some of the rest are wrong

Actually the cars at Le Mans in '99 were designated CLR, not CLK-GTR which is a different car. The enclosed canopy actually created lift which partially led to them becoming airborne. One flipped during practice and one flipped during the race. The remaining car on the track was brought in after one CLR flew into the trees. BTW how the hell do you flip an all-wheel drive Lambo in a residential area?

How do you do that?


Don't find a parking spot? Just look for a Corvette and park on top of it... The Driver won't mind if you leave no tire marks.

The Mercedes SL is a 500 - the wheels are not AMG wheels so it can't be a 55 and it's not a 600.

I was caught up on the one that's a CLK-GTR. Thought it was a McLaren F1 at first but I should have noted the wheels more closely

What car exactly?

I'd really love to race cars one day but all I've acomplished yet is getting my mother's Peugeot 306 (I don't have my own car) to 170 kph... Not very much.

#1 is definitely not a Pinto, the gaps in the doors that serve as air intakes and the grille definitely spell "348".
My set(s) of wheels :
1) 2002 Volkswagen Golf GTI 1.8T
2) 1996 Hyundai Accent 1.5 LS
3) 1993 Renault Clio 1.2 Oasis

I used to have a Volkwagen Polo TDI 75, you can see it here :
