Still guessing? Let us know if you need a clue.

5/11/2012 Noon Update
CONFIRMED FACTS SO FAR from OneHotLap on Facebook: Originally European but global effort, 5 lbs per pony at the wheel; engine size < 6 ltr, NOT an Aston, AMG, Ferrari, Bugatti, McLaren F1, Audi RS6, BMW M car, Mazda MX5, or a poorly tuned lawnmower...

    Jamey F.: I need 1 clue... what gear is that?
    Friday at 9:09am

    OneHotLap: Third gear
    Friday at 9:10am

    Jamey F.: who'd shift into 3rd gear at 2000rpm?!?!?!
    Friday at 9:13am

    OneHotLap: Good call, the only time you'd that is if you are at the dyno ;o)
    Friday at 9:14am

    Jamey F.: then my guess would be a M1, or possibly a M coupe...

    OneHotLap: New house rule: 3 questions per person, 3 strikes and you're out. Strike 1. I'll give you 3 more questions though
    Friday at 9:16am

    Jamey F.: what size engine is it
    Friday at 9:17am

    OneHotLap: < 6 ltr :o)
    Friday at 9:20am

    Jamey F.: hmmmm given you're BMW following I'd lean away from thinking you'd post an AMG, is it an F1?
    Friday at 9:26am

    OneHotLap: Haha, I like all sports cars. There are some awesome-sounding AMGs! Not an F1 car though.
    Friday at 9:36am

    Jamey F.: I meant Maclaren F1, but I'll assume you got that... last question : What country is it made in?
    Friday at 9:43am

    OneHotLap: European country
    Friday at 10:00am

    OneHotLap: And truly global effort.
    Friday at 10:03am

    Jamey F.: hmmm, I'm leaning towards an Aston or a Ferrari, and since you gave me a continent instead of a country I'm giving you a manufacturer instead of a model... Ferrari (590GTO to be specific)
    Friday at 10:10am

    Jamey F.: errr 599 (type-o, sorry)
    Friday at 10:11am

    OneHotLap: HINT No 1: ~ 5 lbs per pony measured at the wheel.
    Friday at 10:17am

    Jamey F.: you didn't find a Bugatti did you???
    Friday at 10:25am

    Jake W.: It sounds like a poorly tuned lawnmower
    Friday at 10:42am

    Chris Carter I was thinking an Audi RS6
    Friday at 10:47am

    OneHotLap: We have a Miata MX-5 guess too: http://www.OneHotLap:.com/2012/05/quiz-no-1-can-you-guess-car.html?showComment=1336748606941#c3649172222660606023

    Jamey F.: a V12 miata would be awesome! it'd prolly beat the 5lb to 1whp ratio though... by like half!

    OneHotLap: CONFIRMED FACTS SO FAR: Originally European but global effort, 5 lbs per pony at the wheel; engine size < 6 ltr, NOT an Aston, AMG, Ferrari, Bugatti, McLaren F1, Audi RS6, Mazda MX5, or a poorly tuned lawnmower.
    Friday at 11:11am

    Jamey F.: or an M coupe or M1, but then neither of those have a 6litre engine so that should be a given...
    Friday at 11:16am

    OneHotLap: Correct, NOT a BMW M car and note that the engine size is LESS THAN 6 ltr. That's still a range between 1 cc and 5,999 cc :o)
    Friday at 11:22am

    Jamey F.: Oh you completely threw off all my guesses! I thought you said OVER 6LITERS!!!!
