Whoa. Look at those lovely curves, the tires and wheels, the side exhaust, engine. Makes me drool all over my comp.

Performance figures are mind numbing.

Visibility is not great but would make a super hot drag machine. Veyron killer for sure.

With that much torque, I don't think a fancy close ratio 6-speed would survive more than a few races.

The aerodynamics do not look supportive of the 300 KM/h claim. Not remotely so. I'd love to see any videos of test drivers taking this EU equivalent of "Habib Sitara" past 250 and surviving. If there aren't any I can empathize, good test drivers are hard to find when the previous one's keep dying on regular frequency.

The only way this contraption is going to reach 300 is if you put this thing as payload in a GSLV.

it will swallow the veyron from a roll on, from a digg it might be a tough call since traction will be an issue on this..
