Article is completely wrong as far as engine specs 3.6L isn't an 800 HP V8, thats the 5.0L supercharged option. Duh do a little homework

This is the stupidest article ever. Fastest car is wrong. The Hennessy Venom GT has recorded 275MPH and the Lexus isn't even close to the tech level of a Bughatti or lets say the New McLaren MP4-12C, All the lexus is-is flash no results. A ford gets most menacing cause it looks like it was designed by 13 year old wannabe street racer? That GT500 is ugly.....Hennessy Viper RR with 2000hp is more menacing, Ferrari FXX is more menacing, Gumpert Apollo, Corvettes Zr1 are more menacing .

this whole article was poorly written....

This is another lame written article to gain some attention, so to have favor with the website advertisers. After all, if websites don't get the public's attention, then advertisers won't pay the websites.

With that said, it's difficult to comprehend how can the two be compared. Rollercoaster rides are affordable, supercars are not. Rollercoasters has the riders fully aware of the controlled and predictable course the ride will take in a one-way direction, with the coaster cars locked into the tracks, and the riders strapped in fully restrained.

Supercars are on open roads, with all sorts of uncontrolled elements, including other motorists traveling in the opposite direction. A driver of a supercar can inflict property damage and harm onto others, a rollercoaster does not.

With that said, I've ridden motorcycles for years, which puts a person on a more precipitous danger, and thrill, level than a rollercoaster or supercar. One particular experience I had with a motorcycle ride made even the most extreme rollercoasters seem tame in comparison: One night I was caught in the middle of a storm squall on the Golden Gate Bridge. The wind, rain, fog, and motorists traveling in the opposite direction, which I could have easily been pushed into from a gust of wind, made that near two mile riding stretch one of the closest to the edge of death I've ever experienced. It also made all succeeding rollercoaster rides very tame in comparison. So, now I can save my time and money with skipping such amusement park rides.

Re: the "Lightning Racer" at Hersheypark. Better check your information a little closer because "The Racer" at Kennywood Park (Pittsburgh) is also a wooden, double racer coaster and it's been in use for decades! Sorry to burst your bubble, but it is, what it is.......
