Bugatti weighs 4,400lbs, your point? Vette is still heavy, and you are comparing the vette to the enzo because? Completely different ball game.

Just let it go, this thread isn't even about vettes, ferrari's in the first place.

I was merely pointing out that 3,132 lbs is not that heavy, relative to other well handling cars. I have no long love of 'Vettes, but there is good information and bad information. The 'Vette does not handle badly. . . and weight is hardly the culprit, since it's not much heavier than an xB.

This thread is about the ultimate performance of an xB. . . and although it may be impressive, the xB is hardly a super car. And the original point is that "keeping up" with something like a Corvette (since the 'Vette keeps up with Ferrari's, why stop at a Corvette) is a ludicrous concept. In all liklihood, the car was NOT racing, regardless of handling or acceleration, as the xB is beat (by a large margin) in the first place.

Even an 300C is ahead by leaps and bounds. A regular Chrysler 300 (the V6) would be a somewhat more feasible comparison.

Again, I would like to drop it, but there are more arguments being introduced regarding the weight of a 'Vette, and I'm only bringing in facts regarding how LIGHT it is for a car in its class.

To me, 3,000lbs+ for a two door is heavy. I'm not saying the vette can't handle and perform amazingly, all i said was it was heavy. Period. I mean, the Bugatti is extremely heavy but that doesn't stop it from having a rough power to weight of 5. The vette isn't a super car either.

An xb can out corner tons of cars with a well part set up regardless of rwd, fwd, awd, whatever. Driver plays a very much important role in everything. A car can only perform as well as the driver can.

Conclusion: Xb will never be drag queen, its strengths lay within cornering.

Oh yeah, lets stop talking about vettes now. It has nothing to do with the xb, and if i wanted to talk about vettes i would go to one of their forums.

You can let it go man, its possible. I never said you were lying, but i'm not either. Its a heavy car, thats my opinion, for its class might be fairly light but i'm not talking about classes being its a xb thread. I'm talking generally speaking. I've brought nothing but one opinion and one fact to the "table" The video i spoke of, xb did infact hang with the vette through the corner, once straight away hit it was over.

Now lets pllllllease move on before i kill myself. Thank you.

Still not about the xb. lol But yes, and the STi is faster than most cars under $45,000. I'd say easy falls in top 10 with overall performance.

Back to xb...anyone..

This was as fast as I could get it to go...
Allowing for speedo error, which is about 7 mph at that speed, your speed was just over 95 -- on a 6% downhill. (The speedos are calibrated for the 185/65R15 tires of the bB.) Your photo shows why this is about tops for the automatics: at 4500 rpm the engine is well below its max HP.
Scion says top speed for the manual is 103 which would indicate as about 112. The higher sped would be enabled by the engine's turning over 5000 rpm to make more power. Here is a view of Toyota's test track where speed is probably tested:

I was playing with mine the other day. It would go to about 105 out of OD and be at or near redline. Then when shifted into OD it would only gain a small amount and only maintain it. 110mph was about all it would go even tho it was far from redline. I don't think this small motor can push it any more because of the gearing. If 3rd was a bit taller it would go higher.

Well this is the 1st gen section to start off with, so your info is pointless and does not matter.
Second there is no "damd edition" xB in any year.
Third, way to bring up a post that has been dead for 10yrs.
