-->'''Atkinson:''' Look at a modern supercar of comparable performance and it will be [[MightyGlacier vast, heavy]] and [[AwesomeButImpractical offer little or no space for your luggage]]. By comparison the F1 is [[BiggerOnTheInside tiny, yet it will seat three, store enough for you all to go on holiday]] and [[PintSizedPowerhouse still finds space for a proper, normally aspirated 6.1-litre V12 engine]]. And [[LightningBruiser it weighs the same as a shopping car]]. Nothing has ever been designed before or since with [[GenreSavvy such imagination and clarity of thought]].

* ''Fanfic/CyclesUponCycles'': The Piranha. Originally a [[Franchise/StarCraft Hellion]] chassis, it swaps out the flamethrower for a dual auto-cannon scavenged from a Goliath, has had its frame and engine modified to be whisper-quiet, and has a sensor suite that allows it to detect cloaked enemies. It can hold two normal-sized people, or a single Marine in full armor.

* The Ford GT-90 concept car. Too bad it was never produced.
** To go into detail, this car used two engines fused together, that's two separate sections with two turbos ''each'', this raised horsepower to 720 at max and gave it 220+ MPH to compete with the F1 at the time, this made the exhaust so incredibly hot, it needed space shuttle like ceramic tiles to keep the body from being damaged... Then you learn this was all speculative and the car was never really tested but the speculative engine design is probably what inspired the W16, quad-turbo engine of the Veyrons later on.



** The F1's tendency to crash probably stems from the fact there's no driving assistance offered to the driver, at most you get a brake deployed spoiler but the car has no traction control, launch control, stability control, ABS, no powered steering and a fully manual gearbox and clutch. Coupled with the car's ridiculous power being driven to the rear wheels, this makes the car a case of DifficultButAwesome where if you can master driving it, other cars like the Veyron become laughably easy to drive in comparison

** The 16.4 ''Grand'' Sport, that's the worlds fastest ''convertible'' sports car car, most other cars of it's type don't have a soft/hard, removable roof to preserve their high speed and aerodynamics.

** The company also ''had the law changed'' just so the car could have its center driver seat. This car is filled with moments of awesome. What makes it even more awesome is the F1 uses the old seating layout .

* Almost everything Lamborghini has ever made can qualify as a Cool Car. Some of the most famous names of cars from this company are the [[BadassGrandpa Miura]], [[MemeticBadass Countach]], Jalpa, [[SuperSpeed Di]][[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast ab]]lo, Murcielago and as of late, the [[MadeOfWin Aventador]]. Special Mention goes to the [[MadeOfWin Reventon]], just [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamborghini_Revent%C3%B3n looking at it]] is explanation enough.

** On the subject of Lambo's, the Countach would count since it was the first Lamborghini to use their infamous swing up doors. (Fact: They were used because normal doors just would not work with the design.)
*** Plus: [[VideoGame/NeedForSpeed It's the stealth fighter of sports cars.]] So are the later Reventon and Aventador.

*** Countach itself is an Italian expression typically upon sight of a beautiful woman
and Aventador.simply translates as "Wow!" or "Good Lord!".



** The Murcielago, named after the bull that ''survived 28 sword strokes''. "Be assured. It is a fighter" Indeed.

Sometimes, the car is cool enough that it actually can become a protagonist in the series -- ''e.g.'' KITT in ''Series/KnightRider'' and the General Lee in ''TheDukesOfHazzard'' are arguably the ''main'' protagonists of their respective shows and are as iconic to the audience as the human stars.
