The Baltimore Sun reports on a car that exceeded 210mph on a track in Ohio.

What goes 0-60mph in 1 second, has 2,400 horsepower, and gets 10mpg on regular pump fuel? The world’s fastest-to-sixty, street-legal car: a Chevy Corvette Sting Ray.

    I mean to say... not particularly special in terms of performance numbers, rather.

    And this benefits humanity exactly how?

    All automotive projects should benefit humanity? How about the benefit of "fun."

    Gforce : you really must be joking to ask a question like that . You dont think a car capable of 400kph, 1000hp , amazing handling/stablity at high speed, the ability to stop as quickly as it accelerates, and the logistics of fitting an engine that size into a compact body, drivetrains & tyres to endure its output time and time again, not to mention deal with the intense heat produced by 4 turbos...and the myriad of other things I havent mentioned or even know about, and you think its engineering is comparable with a Jetta? Dean: pardon the typo, maybe you should contest the next Spelling bee 2009? tigeraid : credit where it is due tigeraid you did state that and I glossed over it apologies Eazy : nice post This is street legal in its own state, what about any other state? California with its strict emisson laws... do you think it'd pass there...
