Damn, this is fast (if it's true ). Considering Bugatti Veyron runs out of fuel after 12 minutes of going at top speed, how long do you think the fuel will last on this baby? 5 mins? Just enough to get from one gas station to another...

92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.

Current Cars:
2008 ML320 CDI 4MATIC (W164) - Silver/Black
2008 C230 4MATIC (W204) - White/Black

Past Cars:
2002 E320 (W210) - Silver/Black - Sold due to rust

And someone has done 0-322mph in 4.7 secs but so what. What's the use on overcrowded roads in an overheating planet? Every country in Europe except Germany has a speed limit of around 70mph even on motorways. On environmental grounds, on safety grounds, and so the police don't have to spend a fortune of your money on high speed pursuit cars we should fit all cars with limiters to restrict top speed to say 100 mph. Even that is more than most of us can ever legally use.

Its got a carbon fibre tub and bodywork made by ATR in Italy. The same people who build these components for the Ferrari Enzo and the Porsche Carrera GT. The

The thing is, apparently its never been near a wind tunnel!

I can just imagine going for 430kph and having a MB LeMans moment like Webber and his teammate did.
