    no joke, it's called gear ratios.<!-- Signature -->

    This car is geared to provide great acceleration speeds that you will encounter in a race. No need to go over 200mph. There aren't any straight aways were that will be useful. Drag also slows it down.

    Cars in its class were hitting 185 at sears point raceway inthe ALMS. so it would have topped out early. oh and sears point is a road course.

    I agree it's a joke I've seen in a magazine that the topspeed is 325+kph/202+mph
     
  6. theres lots of cars that can top 325 kph some new bmw's and porsches easily do over 330 as well as the benz slr and there all german cars so there probably below 600 hp but theres other stock cars with greater hp that go faster than that like the 1000 hp veyron
     
  7. the gearing was set up for acceleration
     
  8. There is no point in sacrificing amazing acceleration for a high top speed when there is no race track in the world where having a high top speed would be beneficial.

    Check out the 0-60.... impressive, eh?
     
  9. NO YOU ARE retard, its a track car dip shit.
     
  10. This car doesn't need to go faster dan 280 kph. It is the way how it gets to that speed. It wil out accelarate almost any car and stil gave a lot of downforce wich creates drag and limits its topspeed. With 600hp this car "could" do well over 300kph, but sacrificing a lot of acceleration and downforce, so on track would be a lot slower.
