Default Worlds fastest Garage Car!

Somone sent me this link a while back, a street legal version of a 1971 Vaxhaul Victor. The 9.3Liter V8 engine pushes out 2200bhp and goes from zero to 60mph in 1 Sec. Does the quarter mile in 7.8s. WOW! but yeah.. gives a mileage of 5MPG.



The YouTube Video :

and a little more Here

There indeed is a thread on this. It was featured in Fifth Gear quite some time back.

Ahhh... My kinda wheels....

7.8 is kinda low for a RWD though. 2000 horses should muster late 6's..or early sevens...

Conti is an old Vauxhall Victor, and yes this car has been on TBHP for a while.
