  1. Lol! Maybe it hits 250.. with heavy modifcations not avaliable for the street version <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    Haha, maybe not, maybe it does it. Who knows, well wait and see.
  2. we are going to need pics if its true!
  3. Look at it this way, May 2007 is going to be a good month for top speed freaks...because where is a car going to acheive it's Top Speed if not on a couple of 13-14km straights? I'm sure we'll see some amazing shit go down...and some amazing video <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  4. if the barabus actually has as much HP as they claim, there is no way its street legal
  5. If they are going to allow Brabus to compete then I would like to see the Spectrum5 Ultima GTR run.
  6. The koenigegegegeg isn't pretty but it doesn't look like a sloppy half-assed kitcar like the SSC does.
  7. Bugatti will just get some new ultra-good tyres for the Veyron, de-limit it and shit all over everyone at 300mph, then the brakes will fail.....
  8. Will Lotec be along with anything?
  9. honestly i disagree, the koenigsegg looks just as much like a kit as the SSC [comparing the original CC and CC8S to SSC because SSC has just started out]

    maybe, MAYBE the CCX has cleaned up a bit and is no longer so kit-ish but when koenigsegg first came out and was the fastest, it looked real like a total kit car

    and the Ultimate Aero and what not does not look all that kit car anymore
  10. The Koenigsesgg has always had design flair, though. The SSC just looks totally generic, unoriginal and uninspiring. You can actually see someone having a Koenigsegg poster on the wall, it's take a hard-core geek to have an SSC up there in pride of place.
  12. The Veyron can't go faster than 260. It is aerodynamically impossible. Also, an unlimited Veyron has run 258 on Ehra Lessien.
  13. He was probably being not totally serious.
  14. I hope nobody from top gear will race
  15. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> Standardized testing this morning, my brains hurts.
  16. SSC will bring a 1200hp twin turbo version to the test, geared for 270 mph.

    Other than that there will be Bugatti and Koenigsegg. Dont know if Saleen is going to be there but if the S7 is a 1000hp version its gonna run very strong.

    Cars Id personally like to see are

    Brabus Rocket
    Joe's TT Ford GT
    Hennesseys Viper 1000
    A corvette from Lingenfelter
    Gembala Mirage GT
  17. That would make for an interesting playing field, certaintly.
  18. hey, sox, do you have a link where i can find this unrestricted veyron run? i've never heard of it before. i have heard that it could do 270 w/o the governor.
  19. I personally don't want to see tuner cars in the running.
  20. i'm guessing the new rocket ?
  21. maybe with backwind but still unlikely. even if it could i doubt they would attempt it. theres a good chance the wheels [tires] wouldnt be able to handle the stress
  22. Didn't they have a 1200hp version of the Sirius?
  23. No, what you heard about was the "industry rumour" about the faster Veyron GT, a rumour that was started by some rubbish, bored weekly automag, probably AutoBild or ams, because that's what twats like that do: make up complete arse to fool people into buying their magazines.
  24. Check the 05 issue of Automobile where they test the Veyron, they say the VAG engineers told them that the Veyron had acheived 258 on EL minus the top speed limiter.
  25. i hope the enzo is included
