    I'm ready to see a test of it. I know the engine is a beast, but I want to see it's braking and handling abilities.

    The R's wheels are made of carbon fiber, and supposedly weigh about 7lbs. a piece. And the brakes are supposed to be something special, two-piece rotor units, despite not being made of carbon-ceramic.

    Damn! It's just a tad more than the 8.5 ratio on my 03 cobra. I was looking at picking up a GT500 soon but might just hold out for this instead.

    Engines like that make me wonder if I'll have to change my name.

    Seriously? ... Like saying sex with a dumpster is the same as sex with Kate Upton.


    Disclosure for legalese: I've had no sex with either above. Fantasy? Only one of the above and she has blond hair and no fetures engineered for a dump truck to shake her. YMMV...

    If the video I saw of the shebly out on track with the, form what I gather the voodoo engine, the exhaust notes are not very enjoyable. It sounds mean though! Hopefully it is just a decoy and they will not sound like that in production release.

    There are tons of videos focused on the exhaust noise, and tons of 1st hand reports about it. Evidently it is loud and mean. Sort of a harsh, metallic, mechanical noise.

    I think this is it. I have to say, the exhaust note does not please me. I wouldn't have guessed it was a V8 just by the sound.
