At the danger of contradicting my other thread about the demise of ICE cars, I want to chat about 1000hp supercars. Is there - somewhere - a tipping point whereby the relevance of their huge hp becomes redundant because of its ridiculousness?
I’m not saying small brain stuff like ‘why make a car with 1000hp when the speed limit is only 70mph’, nor am I denying the engineering excellence needed to design and develop an engine capable of such and output; but when hp levels get that extreme, are they, ironically, difficult to care about rather than be impressed by?
Bugatti launches 1000hp
Audi launches 1200hp
Ferrari launches 1500hp
You’re kinda into the zone of extreme silliness and ‘so whatery’. Until such a time that my brilliance is recognised, it’s unlikely that I’ll be able to buy a 1,000hp car; and even if I had the means to do so, I just know I’d rather have that little Alpine in a heartbeat over a 1,000hp car. So Ferrari - never mind about mega hp. Try making a pretty car, instead 👍
A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.
Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.
