The Aventador's launch seemed...a bit slow. I think with a professional driver, the Aventador could come out on top.

Edit: Yeah you can see it at 3:35 clearly. The Aventador missed the holeshot.

Edit: Confirmed: https://www.0-60specs.com/lamborghini-aventador-0-60-times/
Aventador should be about a 0.7 seconds faster than they got.

As far as super cars go, Aventador is heavy too (over 4000 lbs).

Need more ponies and torque to overcome the weight.

Mercedes' new £2.4MILLION Project ONE hypercar with 1,000bhp and 217mph top speed





the car will use a 1.6-litre turbocharged hybrid V6 engine like the one powering Mercedes-AMG's F1 factory team's cars.........all 275 due to be built have already been pre-sold, Mercedes said.





four electric motors combine with the 1.6-litre six-cylinder petrol engine to produce around 1,000bhp - and that's with the redline trimmed from 15,000rpm in F1 specification to a slightly less eardrum-shattering 11,000rpm for the Project ONE.

The lithium-ion batteries and the system used to cool them have also been lifted directly from the Mercedes Formula One race cars, though the Project ONE has more of them to boost the zero-emissions driving range and a plug-in socket so you can replenish electricity from the mains.





With the batteries fully charged, the car will be able to cover 15 miles in electric-only mode




A gaping front bumper, carbon-fibre ducts in the bonnet, flaps attached to the sides, active winglets over the fron wheels and an intake on the roof are designed to feed as much air to cool the hybrid unit as possible, as well as make the Project ONE as aerodynamic as possible.

Also fed from the F1 project is the shark-fin that sits above the engine compartment, while a wrap-around diffuser and retractable rear spoiler - both designed to improve downforce - dominate the rear of the vehicle.

More epicness

The new Bugatti has set a world record by accelerating from zero to 249mph and back to a standstill - in 41 seconds.

To demonstrate its performance they gave it to former F1 star Juan-Pablo Montoya who took it for a spin on the top secret Ehra-Lessien test track
http://googlesightseeing.com/2007/03/super-secret-volkswagen-test-track/








This was over a distance of just 1.9 miles - with Montoya opting against wearing safety gear for the test.

He said: 'The Chiron is so incredibly fast it takes your breath away. And its braking is at least as impressive. Of course, the Chiron is a super sports car that requires your full attention when you are behind the wheel.

World's fastest shed hits 155.6kmh




British gardener Kevin Nicks has smashed through his official record for the world's fastest shed - by reaching a top speed of 96.8mph (155.7kmh).

The 52-year-old, from Chipping-Norton in Oxfordshire, surpassed his previous official record by 128kmh on August 19, at the Wheelie and Top Speed Championships event at Elvington Airfield in York.

Nicks was hoping to break the 160kmh (100mph) mark and only fell short due to high winds and adverse weather conditions

It's called the FXX-K Evo, costs in the region of £3million and is just as potent as Ferrari's current Formula One car.



The FXX-K is a tweaked version of the already mega-exclusive FXX-K - Ferrari's track-only hypercar that's based on the £1million road-legal LaFerrari - and is the ultimate Top Trumps model.

It features a 6.3-litre V12 engine using the same petrol-electric Kinetic Energy Recovery System - also known as KERS - that F1 machines have been boosted with in recent years.

That was cool, but I thought it was funny how Koenigsegg smashed that record immediately after hearing about it.

https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/koenigsegg-agera-rs-crushes-bugatti-chirons-acceleration-record/

"The Koenigsegg Agera RS did the 0-400-0 sprint in just 36.44 seconds, taking 5.5 fewer seconds to accomplish this feat than Bugatti needed. Not only was the Agera RS faster across the whole thing, it also hit 400 kph in less time than the Bugatti -- 26.88 seconds versus 32.6 seconds."

Pretty mental numbers, I'd love a go in either tbh! :rolleyes:

Hennessey Venom F5

300mph-plus. from a road-legal car with number plates and indicators.







The Venom F5 is powered by an “all-American” twin-turbo V-8 that produces more than 1,600 hp, according to Hennessey. That engine is mounted amidships and comes mated to a seven-speed single-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. The drivetrain powers the rear wheels only, and is said to be capable of accelerating the 2,950-pound F5 to 186 mph from a standstill in less than 10 seconds. The sprint from 0-249 mph is estimated in under 30 seconds, Hennessey projects top speed will exceed 300 mph.

Too bad the Mazda Furai is no more.





It was only a concept car but it was so beautiful....

Unfortunately it is no longer of this world and Mazda has never told anyone what happened to its burnt out remains :(

It’s amazing that a lot of theses cars are going to some type of hybrid engine since a lot of country’s are banning gas fueled cars by 2020 I hate to see hyper cars go away just because of the ban.

Koenigsegg reaches 284.5MPH in record-breaking run on dead straight Nevada road

The Agera RS clocked an average speed of 277.9mph over the two runs






On its first run the Koenigsegg registered a top speed of 271.2mph, beating the Veyron even while battling an incline and oncoming winds.

During the second run - going slightly downhill and with a favourable tailwind - the car clocked a top speed of 284.5mph, the fastest a production car has ever gone.








Koenigsegg's record is particularly impressive because it was completed not only in a production car, but down a section of public highway using 'standard' tyres.

The owner of the Agera had used his connection in the film industry to convince Nevada authorities to shut down an 11-mile stretch of Highway 106, which runs between Las Vegas and the town of Pahrump, Top Gear reports.

The test was then carried out using Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres which are the tyres the Koenigsegg is sold with and are authorised for use on the road.
