    The "LM" isn't in the name without a reason. It stands for "Le Mans," the notorious race for which it is inspired. It's based on the Saber LM-R, which raced in the 1985 24 Hours of Le Mans.

    The most powerful road-legal production car of its day, it houses a 5.0L TT V12 engine, which delivers 616 hp @ 6300 rpm and 721 lb-ft @ 3300 rpm. It's a fairly responsive engine that isn't significantly hampered by turbo lag.

    This power, along with its reasonably low weight of 2836 lbs (1286 kg), makes for a car that can go from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.1 seconds, an eye-opening figure even to this day. Equally astounding is the mere 10.6 seconds it takes to blitz the quarter mile.

    When the car gets up to speed, those eager rear tires are kept in check thanks to the massive wing that spans along the width of the rear deck lid. Take care at low speeds, however; unbridled by traction control, all that torque will be sure to punish any unsuspecting drivers!

    Note: It will only top out at around 190 mph in I've tried many different gear settings and wing angles, but that's all it will do regardless.

    Let me know what you think!
