Current battery tech has no where near the power density of a turbine jet engine. It's impossible without a revolution in batteries.

That car is no where near big enough to house a 12.3L engine. Think of the weight, the transmission, the radiator, etc.


3000 hp out of 12.3L is feasible. 4600, I have my doubts. It might be street legal in Dubai because the prince that made the laws owns it. I highly doubt it would be street legal in the USA.

The AF10



The AF10 uses what the firm has dubbed a ‘warp drive system’ consisting of five parts, four motors and one petrol engine that weighs just 617 pounds -and can go from 0 to 60mph in just 2.8 seconds.

‘Each warp drive unit has its own gearbox, 2 speed for the electric drives and 6 speed petrol engine, and is available in manual or paddle-shift,’ reads Arash Motor Company’s
website.

Its sleek shiny black casing is chiseled out of carbon-reinforced plastic with ‘aluminium honeycomb sandwich construction’, it’s designed with two electric lifting doors, a fixed rear wing, an adjustable front wing and lightweight magnesium center-lock race wheels (20x12in rear and 19x9in front), reports Autocar.

By combining the supercharged V8 engine and the four electric motors it can produce a power figure of 2,080bhp and top out just a little over 200mph.









The petrol engine is a v8 with a compact supercharger mounted inside its v cavity. The firm says it is is simplified and lightened by using 2 valves per piston – makes the head size compact. All rotating parts are below your waist when seated in the car – crank, piston, gearbox bits, clutch, similar to a go kart.

Not entirely sure why someone would buy that over the other supercars on the market.

Red Bull and Aston Martin team up to build £2m hypercar


Formula One outfit Red Bull and British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin have announced a technology partnership to build an £2million Aston Martin-branded supercar, which will be quicker than an F1 racer.
Red Bull's chief designer Adrian Newey will work with Aston Martin's design boss Marek Reichman on the car, dubbed Project AM-RB-001, Red Bull said on Thursday.








Badged an Aston Martin but currently known by the codename AM-RB 001, the car is being created in a specially dedicated design studio inside Aston Martin’s Gaydon HQ. Around 99 units will be manufactured by Aston’s bespoke Q division, which has recently produced the Vulcan track car, at a price understood to be between £2-3million.

The car will be of a mid-engined layout, which will be a first for an Aston Martin. They also revealed that it will feature a KERS-style drive system and a race series will be set up for the cars.

Red Bull and Aston Martin are currently unwilling to reveal details of the car’s mechanical layout beyond the fact that it employs an F1-style recipe of very sophisticated aerodynamics, carbon fibre construction and “super aggressive” weight targets. They say performance is in the realm of current F1 and WEC cars; no road-going car will be anywhere near as fast. At this stage they are releasing nothing but a design sketch of the car that gives very little information about the mechanical layout.
The car is a mid-engined two-seater, a layout that could provide Newey with the weight distribution and low frontal area he will need for race-level performance in a road car
Aston sources suggest this will not be a pure battery car, which leaves the strong probability that it will be a petrol-electric hybrid, probably with simplified versions of the performance-boosting electric motors and energy recovery systems of WEC and F1 cars. There is no guidance yet on the identity of the petrol motor, though, although speculation suggests something compact, such as a detuned race engine, is possible. The suspension layout is tipped to be a race-style double wishbone system complete with pull- or push-rods, bellcranks and inboard--mounted suspension units in the style of today’s top-end racing cars.
Although he wouldn’t be drawn on specifics, Reichman indicated the AM-RB 001’s likely to have an all-carbon structure when he said that Aston Martin would not have had the technical capability to make the hypercar if it hadn’t built the One-77 and Vulcan models. “Though AM-RB 001 is very different, these cars helped open our minds,” he said.

First thought was Aston Martin but they really changed the front design on that car. It kind of looks like a Corvette...not really a fan. :(

Aston Martin's AM-RB 001
http://www.astonmartin.com/en/amrb001


Unveiled at the iconic British carmaker’s Gaydon headquarters today, the extreme model is said to be capable of lapping the Silverstone circuit in the same time as an F1 car.

Aston has committed to building between 99 and 150 road cars and 25 track-only versions, which will cost between £2million and £3million - and require a £500,000 deposit

More details of the AM-RB 001‘s technical specification will be revealed in due course, but its heart is a new, mid-mounted, high-revving, naturally aspirated V12 engine with the potency to achieve a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio; 1 bhp per kilo of weight.
Surprising.

This car can obviously hit a nice round 300mph, so I wonder why they don't just call it that? It sounds a lot better. I'll bet it's actually speed limited to 290.
Actually, it's just barely managing the 290 mph as it is... That's due to aerodynamic drag as others have already noted (you can see more about the calculations here and play around here)... But it's also because of downforce which is absolutely necessary in abundance at those speeds, to prevent fatal liftoff (or at least loss of traction due to lift). Downforce effectively increases the mass of the car (actually it applies additional downward force onto the car, but the effect is the same as if the car was heavier), which puts additional strain onto the engine, raising power requirements in order to accelerate.

Going from 290 to 300 mph at the current physical form of the car would necessitate something like an additional 300-350 HP, and would probably take something like 3-4 miles (of straight road) to accelerate from 290 to 300 mph. To halve the time for acceleration from 290 to 300, probably tack on another 300-400 HP. With the increased weight due to transmission, chassis reinforcements and engine components being neglected in the calculations, I think you realize how hard it is to have a legal and safe car reach the magical 300 mph...

300MPH is insane, also you will most likely need a huge increase in horse power to even get 20 MPH more... wind and aero dynamics... it's very real at these speeds, watch anything on the land speed records and you will soon have a basic understanding that these speeds are feats of engineering for a production street legal vehicle.

Nope that car is not fast as the thread name say's.
"we" would of had accessible "fast car" ' "s" way long ago if tyres would hold paired with appropiate suspension all considering aerodynamics, power and power to weight not being an issue with respects to fuel vs internal combustion engines abilityes. to fuel.
What stoneage are you in using imperial units?, nah just kindding , or am I? :)
