Man it's gonna suck to have dial-up because this video is 80MB. If you do, have patience because the wait will be well worth it.

This car is called an Ariel Atom. Does it really outrun the CBR? I guess you'll just have to watch the video . Enjoy!

LOL... ok.

That is a cool car. It has more in common with the bike than the GTO. I think they mention something like that in the segment as well. I didn't watch it, but I have seen that one on TV before.

that motorcycle was taking turns really, really wide... I'm not saying it was staged, but I think the motorcycle wasn't giving it's full potential in that race.

Why is it you hate bikes? Seems like there are a lot of people that are mis-informed about bikes around here.

Regardless, that car is pretty impressive. Just to be able to hang with any street bike let along beat one is pretty damn good in my book.

I don't see how it has anything in common with a bike. Except for maybe the power to weight ratio and performance. If this car was some kinda 2 wheel specimen with a motorcycle engine, handle bars, etc. then maybe it will be more similar to a bike than a car.

I didn't watch the video. So my bad! I try to avoid downloading too many racing vids, etc. As I like my computer to function properly.

In general though, I just think that there are alot of fast bikes out there now and the CBR600 might be one of the slower bikes out there. There are many,many cars that will kick it's butt on the street.

A GTO with a few mods would beat a 600 on the street as well. When my car was stock, I was pulling on them pretty hard.
When I do get into my GTO, I will make sure 600s are a snack!
