"While a Veyron Super Sport did run 267.8 mph, Bugatti speed-limits its production vehicles to 258 mph,"

Phew, wouldn't want to put too much speed in the hands of the public.

I wonder if that car will be as stable as the Veyron. At full speed it is supposed to be quite comfortable and not scary at all, assuming you're going in a straight line.  I still remember Mario Andretti discussing the McLaren F1 after he had run one up to about 217 on a closed course and said "Yeah, that was just plain scary".

The veyron takes 4 miles to go 258 mph? Seems like slow acceleration to me.

Well it IS a four thousand pound car. I don't think that's particularly "slow" for something that heavy. Bone stock it's a 10-second car so it's not the fasted 1/4 mile car on the planet but good luck catching it beyond that.

The veyron can probably do a little better... but the tires can't handle it. (Officially)

Of course, this is all meaningless until we see how fast the Stig can take it around the Top Gear track.

I've gone 140mph on the Autobahn and that was plenty fast enough for me.

Ah the american way "We know you are better and thoroughly beat us in every way, so we are appealing for technicalities"

in the same way they said 'The UK may have set the land speed record, but we still have the fastest single engine vehicle'

and the US world record book that lists 'First Man in space - russia', followed by 'First US man in space - USA'

Hennesy provides piss poor customer service if i remember correctly. You would think that a shop that doesnt even produce enough units of that model to qualify to attempt the record would have time to address complaints from customers.

Guess which car I'd rather have.

Yeah, sorry guys...stealing another company's drivetrain and car, and modding it up, does not make you a production car...it makes you a thief.

Popcorn Johnny: I've gone 140mph on the Autobahn and that was plenty fast enough for me.


Eh, I've got a naked street bike I've had up to that speed.  Not particularly eventful.  Trying to push over 170mph this year on my track bike.  PIR has one hell of a long front straight.  Best I've managed so far was a hair over 160mph according to my GPS, but I got a bad drive off turn 9 on the one lap I really wanted to see what it could do.

Speed, once one has experienced it, really isn't anything interesting.  It's just noise and wind.  Cornering is where the excitement is at, and these stupid top speed vehicles can't provide it.  Nothing beats a Ferrari 458 for cornering bliss, excepting F1 cars...

Piss poor customer service?  They steal parts from their customers' cars and sell them.  They are completely unscrupulous.

Actually it's not, it's mostly a stock (body & Suspension)  camaro. which was a really bad idea, and probably why it wrecked this year

it should have at least been lowered, and a front spoiler put on it to keep that nose down

Funny cars are tube chassis drag race only cars powered by nitromethane burning engines. Kelly Bise's Camaro, while extensively modified is based on a production Camaro.

Noo.  A funny car has a one piece body shell that is lifted up at the front for easy access to the engine and driver.  That camaro is more like a pro street dragster.  Where as funny cars are much faster.

crab66: Tonight on "Who has the smallest penis!"


Have you ever gone fast? Really fast? Like over 120? It's a surreal rush. The world looks out of context. You know in your head it's your world only you've never seen it look that way before. It's scary, beautiful, crazy. Going fast is not about wang size. It's not about bragging rights. It's about adrenalin. The best drug of all.

super cars... what's the fastest stock grocery go getter that your average Farker could afford to buy new?

I aint talking starting at $100k cars.. I'm talking starting at $20k and have production runs in the thousands, not the hundreds or, tens.

between $20, and $50k price range with a min of 50K units produced a year. then, we can call it a production car

you know what an adrenaline rush is? its nailing a curly haired redhead with decent tits and feeling her pussy quiver like a dying butterfly around your cock she looks up in your eyes and whispers... Oh.... my god... and you get to say... "thank you... But, I'm not done yet."

Fast cars for a reasonable price new would include the Scion FRS and its Subaru equivalent, the Volks GTI, the souped up Ford Focus, and on the more expensive side the Mustang GT, Subaru WRX, Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6, and the high end Camaros and Challengers.

Have your ever gone faster while on drugs? Super fast while on drugs?  Like over 180?  The world looks like it always does  just that's it's going by really fast because I'm not very dramatic.

The feeling of 'fast' depends greatly on the size, type and stability of the vehicle.


 In my experience.
