    Link: Mexico`s First Supercar... Yes, Mexico - And it appears the ``Speedy Gonzalez`` references have already begun.

    That bean burner beats a donkey any day. I`m surprised it doesn`t have gold spoke rims and a sweet airbrushed tiger on the hood.

    I would first like to see a dependable 100% Mexican brand, mass produced economy car before I would consider anything like this (and yeas, I know Mexico assembles a tone of cars for the U.S.)

    its powered by a ford 4yl ecoboost... the only thing "super" about it is its ability to burst into flames unexpectantly like a every other ecoboost ford. ford is STILL fighting the recall saying its how the people drive it. ok, here is my question "did you intend on producing a car that looks good on paper and NOBODY drive it?" the ecoboost equipped cars are so bad, ford is petitioning the US government for ANOTHER loan, they still have not paid the one they took to avoid filing bancruptcy like GM did. they call GM "government motors" but it looks like the government is gonna end up owning ford instead... it is truly sad

    In my neighborhood, just yell "Immigracion" and they all move that fast.

    240kph is 150 mph. There are Volvos that go faster than that.

    "...drivers are being taken now for spring..." That`s not very nice to say. This might be a really good car.

    BWUAHAHAHAHAHAAA!

    So where are the compartments to smuggle 17 illegal workers over the border. Is it a boat too?

    Personally I would rather a bad ass Mustang or Camero, but this thing probably corners like a kitten on carpet. Lightweight mid engine, low stance, bare-bones design...It`s definatly not the most powerful car around, but I don`t think they had the 1/4 mile in mind when they designed it.

    150 mph is not exactly "Supercar" speed, frankly.

    I think a `78 Ford Pinto station wagon with a bubble window in the back, will do 150 mph.

    Mass production of a low-margin car costs a fortune and is a huge risk unless you already have the production, distribution and servicing facilities. It`s not feasible.

    A low-volume high-margin car with very limited aftersales support is feasible, but what`s the point with this one? It`s a lightweight, low spec semi-racer with relatively low power, so it has to be sold primarily on the basis of having good handling on a track without being impractical on a road. If that`s what you want you can get it for a lot less that £55,000. For example, a new Lotus Elise S is £37,000, has only slightly lower straight line performance, is refined enough for a comfortable 1000 mile road trips and will beat almost any road car on handling.

    That is not the first supercar from Mexico.

    THIS is the first supercar from Mexico.

    Most of the Mexican cars I`ve seen look like this.

    I would hardly call 150 mph a "supercar" (nor would I be stupid enough to go 150 mph in ANYTHING built by Mexicans).
