+1 on Diablo wanna-be, with rice effects on it.. ugh.. atleast high some designers if you are going to try to make it good looking; too much hamburger grease on the keyboard over there.
Veteran road racer Rick Doria was the man picked to drive the 1183bhp SSC. On his first test run, he reported wheelspin when shifting into 6th gear at 190mph, and went on to 221mph. On his second attempt, the Ultimate Aero hit a maximum 230mph within the two-mile test stretch, and was only using 50 per cent throttle in top gear at that speed. He's reported to have said that the car would comfortably break the Veyron's 253mph top speed given a longer run.
Just in case you missed that...
