SSC Ultimate Aero


The SSC Ultimate Aero is now the fastest production car (256.11 mph) it's non tuned and American. But the Bugatti looks better and probably drives a lot better. I would rather have a Veyron anyways. (If I could afford one)

Volkswagen golf w12 650 bhp


Description: The W12-650 is without doubt the most extreme Golf GTI on the road. Where the engine would normally be there's a tiny luggage space, and where the rear seats would normally be there's a rather large 6.0-litre W12 engine. Officially it's the unit from the Phaeton with a pair of turbochargers bolted on; unofficially that means it's the engine from the Bentley Continental GT. MORE HERE AND VIDEO


First Crashed Bugatti Veyron OOPS!!!!!


We only know of one other time a Bugatti Veyron has been wrecked, and that was during the car's development when a prototype was destroyed doing a high-speed test. There was the time a preproduction Veyron performed a very public spin-out at Mazda's Laguna Seca Raceway during the Monterey Historics. These incidents actually delayed the debut of the production car, though perhaps it should have stayed in the oven a bit longer if its designers were worried about stability at speed.

Barabus TKR takes over as worlds fastest car ?


The Bugatti Veyron may no longer be the worlds fastest car. Today — following a number of teasers and leaks — Barabus officially unveiled the TKR: a new 1005 horsepower super car the automaker says is capable of doing zero to 60 mph in 1.67 seconds. What's more, the car reportedly has a top speed of 270 mph — nearly 20 more than the Veyron. Power comes from a 6.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged with dual intercoolers. The car has a full carbon fiber body and chassis. Further details remain sparse, but the automaker says it will sell the car for £360,000, which should translate to around $500,000, using typical automotive market conversion rates. MORE HERE


2007 Audi R8 187mph


 

Based around various components shared with the (Audi-engineered) Lamborghini Gallardo, the R8 uses a mid-mounted, dry-sumped version of the RS4’s 4.2-litre FSI V8 engine to deliver stunning performance: 0-62mph takes a claimed 4.6 seconds and the top speed (unencumbered by one of those pesky 155mph limiters) is reckoned to be a whopping 187mph. One of the worlds fastest cars. MORE HERE AND VIDEO


Vauxhall Vectra VXR New for 2007


 Vectra and Monaro VXR models are already some of the most powerful cars on the road, but that hasn’t stopped Vauxhall giving them even more grunt.

New 2007 model year versions of the Vectra VXR have had the power boosted from 255PS to 280PS, thanks to a redesigned induction system, modified engine components and retuned electronic engine control software. These revisions to the 2.8-litre V6 turbo engine knock four-tenths of a second off the 0-60mph sprint time, taking it down to just 6.1 seconds for the hatchback and 6.3 seconds for the estate.
To match the engine’s extra power, Vauxhall’s engineers have also tweaked the chassis to give more dynamic handling. Modified spring and shock absorber settings and correspondingly retuned IDSPlus2 chassis control software is said to optimize the pitch, roll and turn-in characteristics to make the most of the increased performance without ruining the Vectra VXR’s impressive refinement. The difference between the normal chassis setting and the Sport setting, which is activated by the dashboard-mounted Sport Switch, has been further increased too, making sure that the Vectra’s handling can cope with the most enthusiastic driver’s demands.


Meanwhile the Vectra’s big brother has had an even more dramatic power boost, thanks to a supercharger.



The limited-edition VXR500 Supercharged


 

 

is based on the standard 6.0-litre Monaro VXR8, but uses forced induction to take the power from 403 to 500PS and torque up from 530Nm to a massive 677Nm. In addition to the positive displacement supercharger, the conversion also includes an upgraded fuel system, clutch revisions and bespoke engine tune.
It’s expected that the VXR500 will have a sub five second 0-60 time and a top speed in excess of 180mph, and yet it is surprisingly relaxing to drive, as most of the torque is available low down in the engine’s rev range.
This limited edition model is available for only £35,995 ($67,148 USD equivilent) on-the-road. That’s less than half the price of any other coupe with 500bhp!
