Default The "0-100 in 1 second"car

-----Note from Mod : Threads Merged-----

I had seen this video on discovery which had shown this big red car which reminded me of the contessa.Now after 3 years i realised that the car was an engineering marvel.The car is known as Victor red one.It does 0-100 in one second.Thats right the time you take to unplug your phone or press a button to change a channel.

Here are the pictures.
Baji,I think you have seen this car.

And best of all its street legal.

Its a 9.8l v8 churning 2200 bhp.

And it cost the owner only 187000$.Neat or what?

ok just couldnt help to help you speed fans who would like to drool over the video over and over again...

YouTube Video Download Tool

just copy paste the you tube link and press download, I think its needs a special player to play the video though...

---edit---

you need a flv player, if you can find one...

0-100 in 1 sec?! That sounds like a forefather of the Starship Enterprise.

How are we to know? Your original post mentions no units, miles or kilometres per hour.

But the video is ENGLISH for sure. So it would be miles I guess. I dunno.
