    The Chevrolet Callaway sledgehammer Corvette

    The Sledgehammer car was made in 1988. On October 19, 1989 it set the fastest speed of 254.76mph ever recorded for a non-production, non-modifed, street-legal car. Underneath the hood rests a twin turbo V8 that produces 880hp, 6500 rpm’s and can go from 0-60mph in 3.9sec. The engine rests in the front and powers the back wheels and yet does not have AWD for better acceleration. There has not been a car recorded that has beat the Sledgehammer. But there is a rumor that there is a Mclaren F2. I looked into this and found that there really was one, yet it is just a concept it appeared in HOTROD magazine and has a wind tunnel test of 276mph, and can get from 0-60 in 2.2sec. But yet this is almost a cheater car against the Sledgehammer. The two cars compared the; Sledgehammer has a V8 twin turbo the McLaren F2 has a V16, the Sledgehammer has rear wheel drive, the McLaren F2 has AWD. But the McLaren has not had its speed recorded on the track and the Sledgehammer keeps its spot for the fastest non-production street legal car. Yet many people are confused since the McLaren is only a concept and there is still a rumor if the F2 is a kit car. If you would like to learn more about these cars go to conceptcarz.com and supercars.net.

    Just remember, the Callaway was a modified Corvette, not a production car. This is a production car, not a modified version of anything. In your post you state the the Callaway Sledgehammer does 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. This car is estimated to perform the same feat in 3.0 seconds. That is a HUGE difference in 0-60 times. The 415 hp Porsche 911 Turbo (996) does 0-60 in 3.7 or 3.8 seconds depending on which magazine you read.

  5. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    Who cares?? How often can you drive at 400km/h??
     
  6. this car can go two miles an hour slower than the corvette sledge and yet this has a w16 and the sledge has a v8 twin turbo!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    just because it has 16 silynders doesnt mean that they are V8 sized silynders, those silynders are quiet small compared to the sledgehammer.
    PS the sledgehammer cant handle for shit and cant accellerate.
    the only reason it gets that fast is because of the gearing.

    i could get a piece of shit car to go 400+ but it would take a long time or a very steep hill to get to that speed. <!-- Signature -->

    ok i can understand you telling me the they have dinky cylinders (wich is stupid) but calling the sledgehammer stupid i can give you a good reason y not to dis the sledge and making any car go 400? what about a 1903 steam power job huh without changing the front end??? yeah not so good now huh?? ok this is a nice car but the fact is that it suxs because they made dinky clyinders and also the sledge was made for speed not for a street but what is werid is they made it street legal well little guy you may reply but youll be shot down way way down!!!!!<!-- Signature -->

    Yeah, really. Top speed really isn't that important. I think the one that matters the most is 1/4 mile, out of top, 1/4, 0-100, and 0-60.
    Slaloms, 60-0, skipad g's, and 0-100-0 are pretty good, too.

  12. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    If you did tavel at a speed like that, you must have a deathwish.
     
  13. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    Put the two cars on a racetrack and the Bugatti will rape the 14-year-old Vette. Two miles an hour don't make any difference. Also, the Bugatti is slower due to its huge aerodynamic load, which is a good thing, because it offers more high-speed stability. My uncle works for the aerodynamic department at Bugatti S.p.a.
     
  14. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    Well whoop dee doo you wanna' talk about top speed. Look at the 1938 Mercedes Benz...just like your Sledgehammer, it's got some fat hp and is an old school car and not production. It has less hp and was made in 1938 and can beat the sledgehammer...but does anyone really care? Same thing for the Sledgehammer itself...
     
  15. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    reasons why Sk8 on is an idiot

    1) he makes up stupid fictitious cars like the McLaren F2 (nicely done...this isnt 5th grade u know)
    2) he thinks that 'dinky' cylinders r stupid. You're an engineer r u? big cylinders are less efficient as there is not enough time to burn all the fuel so u waste power - imagine what % of an oil drum full of gas will combust in 1/100th of a second....not much
    3) he thinks the Sledgehammer is a production car
    4) he thinks the Sledgehammer is street legal...it used special high-speed tyres when it ran 255mph so was no longer street legal, it is street-legal when u put normal tyres back on it but it will no longer do 255mph, sorry
    5) he thinks 2mph is a difference big enough to argue about
    6) he thinks cylinder configuration is some reflection on performance
    7) he thinks the Sledge and the Veyron are comparible
     
  16. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    Haha! He sux.
     
  17. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    The Sledgehammer car was made in 1988. On October 19, 1989 it set the fastest speed of 254.76mph ever recorded for a non-production, non-modifed, street-legal car.

The engine rests in the front and powers the back wheels and yet does not have AWD for better acceleration.

    8) In addition to #4, he actually thinks this is not modified.
    Now what stock Corvette have you ever heard of that has 880hp and twin turbos.
    9)AWD does help acceleration but not by almost a second, and regardless AWDs main purpose isn't acceleration either. Last I heard it was for handling.
    10)The top speed argument. The Veyron could reach top speed on a nascar track. In the vette you'd be lucky if they could find any remaining anything of your body after the giant firey crash into the wall when you try to take the corner.
     
  18. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    I don't think there is anything to discuss here. The Bugatti is the fastest, most powerfull "off the shelf" car ever build - end of story. I'm looking forward to see it in front of the Casino in Monte Carlo the next time I'm in the south of France (best place in the world to spot exotic cars). Any car freek should sit at the café de paris sipping espresso wathcing supercars roll by once or twice a year...
     
  19. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    Oh, guess what, I've seen the car of Men in black In the "Hot Spot" mag!!!!! And it reaches 65437438926754 MPH before you can say "Mommy, I want my dildo"!!! Last time I drove it, my liver were lying around somewhere disneyland and moronia, Then he met my dick and all of us were happy forever. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
     
  20. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    see this: 300 km/h in 14,0 seconds!!!
     
  21. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    Read the 'PLEASE STOP' post, and get feedback on what most people think of the Sledgehammer Corvette.
     
  22. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    moron...there's more than top speed!
     
  23. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    Hear hear! Acceleration is the Holy Grail of performance and this car does 60 in less then 3 seconds. Put drag slicks on this car and it could probably drop below 2 seconds.
     
  24. Re: CAN YOU BELEVIE IT??

    it is irrelevant what a car will do on slicks, lets just stick to road tyres shall we, on which the Veyron will probably hit 60 in the high 2s....The mighty Bug has 34% better power/weight and SIXTY-NINE % better torque/weight than an Enzo, AND its 4WD, AND its got seven gears, hahaha
     
  25. Re: CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??

    OK. Let me set htis straight. One, there is NO such hting as a Mclaren F2. I SCANNED THOSE PICS OF THE LE1 MYSELF. Trang took them off my old site and submitted them to conceptcarz as a Mclaren F2. Its called LE1 Groundfighter, built by Wally Larson. Anyway, that takes care of that. now for Sledgehammer. sure its 255 mph top speed is to be respected, but hte sledgehammer is firstly nothing more than a streetable dragster, secondly not designed to run that speed for a prolonged period of time, and not designed with handling in mind. yes you can take many cars, drop a huge displacement engine in there and get a monster. Look at John Hennesseys cars. However, to get htose dragsters to handle an actual racetrack is difficult, because the wieght transfer from the huge engine willl upset the balanced handling, and make the car a horror to drive anywhere but straight in line. the Veyron may also have this problem, but its wider wheels, more modern chassis, high speed tires, and more advanced lighter engine wih less displacement but more torque may not be the best handling machine, but defitely better equipped to drive safely at top speed as opposed to the Sledgehammer. A superfast car is not good if it cant handle a curve. Now you know the truth, so let htis topic die.
