    Nothing does 300 mph. Not without a jet engine. Also, no "street tire" does over 212 mph. Cars that go that fast has specially formulated tires, with their assembly, design and QA phases built around the actual car they will be used on.

    "Mathematically" you say ? 300 mph in that shape, lets say that "mathematically" it requires about 2000 hp to push it (That's a reasonable expectation) then your common cruise ship can "mathematically" do 300 mph.

    Can anyone cite anything that smashed the Callaway Sledgehammer records ? The sledgehammer wasn't an easy car to build.

    My tire speech was stemmed from the engineering necessary to do the Veyron. Granted, a much heavier car that changes dynamics with speed benchmarks, but still. A tire moving at that speed isn't an everyday thing.

    Also, it would appear that Lingenfelter has simply caught up with the Vector W8 / W12.
