Smile What is the most powerful car or bike you have driven?

We have already discussed on these forums the top speeds we have achieved, but since this website has BHP in its name, I am interested in the most powerful car or automobile in terms of BHP (Brake Horse Power) that you have had the pleasure of driving.

Well I will kick off with my bests:

Most Powerful Car: 156 BHP, Mercedes Benz E240 Turbo Diesel in 2003

After the immensely satisfying 100 kms+ drive in my friend's Mercedes, and after overtaking everybody on the highway from Nagpur to Pench, I did not feel like even sitting in my Premier Padmini (what a contrast) for a week!

Most Powerful Bike: 39 BHP, Yamaha RD350 HT

Boy, the g-forces I used to feel when twisting the throttle in 2nd and 3rd gear was a feeling that I have never felt on any automobile after that! If you had a girlfriend back then, this was the bike to make sure she will hold on to you for life!

I am sure a lot of people here have had the pleasure of driving more exotic and powerful cars and bikes. So lets share our experiences and re-live that
power rush!

C'mon BHP-ians, tell us what was the most powerful car or bike you ever drove?

Driven.. thats a good question. 689whp Supra, 584whp NSX, 571whp GSX, 539whp 300zx, and many many others in that range or a bit lower. I'm hoping to build/drive/own 1000whp+ in the next couple months though, so I'll update my post at that time.

These are all WHP(HP to the wheels, so the BHP would be a good amount higher.. maybe an extra 14% on average)

571 WHP Suzuki GSX-R??? Is that a spelling mistakeor are you talking about a track bike? The most powerful road bike in the US is a 545 BHP Busa.

For me it is the '07 Hayabusa and an '95-96 Nissan 300 ZX.
