Default Acabion GTBO - Is it real?

"Topspeed 342 mph or 550 km/h at 55% throttle, 120 mph to 180 mph in 6 seconds."
"At 110 mph not a third of the carbon dioxide of a Toyota Corolla Diesel."

Is it true as they claim?

One great find there. Imagine the G-forces the driver must be under.

And it says the top speed is 600 kmph limited to 550kmph for road use. which road ? LOL.

BTW the rear looks more like a superbike, therefore its no wonder the power to weight ratio and some superb engineering can catapult this thing to such insane speeds.

They claim they have designed the car like this:


Instead of like this (like other manufacturers):


They also claim:
"The manufacturing standards are as high as top rank swiss watches like a 1 million Swiss Francs Gerald Genta."
"As materials we chose top-of-the-line avionic steel, titanium and carbon fibre."
