Guinness makes it Official: SSC Ultimate Aero IS the worlds fastest production car
Still not fast enough.
Wow, that's kinda illegal.
I seriously hope someone gets caught for that shit. There's no reason to do a test-run on a public road. I hope it was at least legally closed off.
Good. Let's set a good example for the ricerkiddies.
That's pretty f'n cool...
And I would have to believe they closed the stretch of road they were testing on for a 256+ MPH run..
did you seriously think that they were gonna do a run like that without government approval. come on, think.
Why not the salt flats ?
I don't really believe this. Snopes it or gimme official Guiness standings.
Building a tire to make this run involves more prep than launching a shuttle. The mirrors create too much drag, and would rip off. The front airdam is too pocketted. The back has too much drag.
This isn't going to happen. It COULD happen, but it would be more spectacular than they let on.
Also, the y2K is the fastest production 'vehicle" in the world, with a top speed of "I'm not doing that"
Reading > You two lol
koenigsegg is gonna have to step their game up a bit.
and there is already a tire for speeds of 249+. they developed it when koenigsegg went for the title. top speed of 246 i think.
Jeremy Clarkson said it was true...i believe him.
As for tires, whatever tires the veyron comes with withstand that speed...so im pretty sure they are available somewhere.
Also, I think the front diffuser actually diverts the air to where the size of the mirrors wouldnt really be a problem.
I want to find the part of washington that was driven on. I bet it was somewhere in central washington.
it looks deserty.
YouTube - SSC Ultimate Aero - Guinness World Record Run - 256.19 mph
i didnt know there was a road in between all the potholes here..
I'd still take a Veyron.
1200hp on pump gas, passing emissions, and kicking out almost 260mph.
Thats freaking amazing. Leather and other weighty creature comforts included.
Now, re-gear/rework it to have a top speed of 140mph and run a 4 second quarter mile. That would be way-way-way more handy than a 260mph top end. You just couldn't use that anywhere.
?!? The Veyron is just an overgrown ugly VW.
when I saw this, I thought it was about beer.
Guiness makes it official, drinking guiness raises your ability to get chicks.
260mph on pump gas????
C'mon, you live in Texas- you know that's not true!
