Looks like this car has launch issues. A regular 9 sec 1/4 mile with a perfect launch has to have a trap speed somewhere around 156-160mph, but this car reaches 178mph at the 400m mark. So im guessing that it loses a lot of time at the beginging, which also explains why it takes 2.5 secs to 60mph (identical to the Veyron) inspite of having a 2900bhp/ton ptwr as compared to 530bhp/ton of the Bugatti.

If they can get this car to launch perfectly, it should be able to do a low 8sec 1/4 mile.

wow thats a monster and a good looking one at that. The rear reminds me of the saleen though. Like someone pointed out earlier this one seems to have some launch issues in putting all the power to the rubber initially. But overall wow crazy stuff.
