    Im not so sure of that...top Gear raced a Maclaren F1 against a Veyron and the F1 beat it, not by much but it was pulling away the whole time

    so did the Jag XJ220, it wasn't as fast off the line to 40ish, but as soon as the jags superchargers kicked it it just flew past it until the jag hit its limit of just over 200MPH, but the problem is the jag isn't very good at corners.

    If you look at it on paper, the veyron will beat a F1 car to 100, but the F1 could get to 100 and stop quicker, go round corners quicker.

    Top speed, not fastest around a track.

    I'd forgotten about the SSC Ultimate Aero... That is a sweet car.

    I love it. In reference to the 2009 model:
    If they can find a long enough stretch of road, SSC predict 287 mph (462 km/h) is possible.

    good lord....that's getting close to funny car speed. And this car....well...it ain't funny, that's for sure.
    what I've always wanted to know is (and the guy who built it hasn't tested its speed) how fast the jet-powered volkswagon bug is:

    that'd be a negative LOL. he says toward the bottom of his page:

    "*** Update 7/18/06 *** You have to give the California Department of Motor Vehicles (the DMV) credit for creativity on this one. A DMV insider has disclosed to me that the DMV has made a formal request to a federal agency to rule if my Beetle constitutes a threat to national security based on what could happen if it got into the wrong hands. This raises three questions in my mind: #1 Does this mean I’m the right hands? #2 If someone with the name "b_laden13" is the highest eBay bidder for my Beetle can I refuse his offer even if he has the prestigious eBay Red Shooting Star feedback rating (the highest)? #3 Would this affect my eBay rating? "

    Two things come to mind: The Bonneville salt flats and I90 between Billings MT and Bozeman MT.

    I was thinking more along the lines of VW's test track in Germany where Top Gear tested the Veyron...not sure they would be happy about letting a competitor on it though....
