    Default Bugatti Veyron Dethroned!

    Brabus TKR!






    Few people know this, but this is now the fastest car ever made, having
    dethroned the Bugatti beast. The name is not to be confused with the
    German tuner Brabus, as she's built by the British company Barabus
    Sportscars Ltd and will be produced in Italy. She has 1005 horsepower,
    it can do 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in...unbelievably...1.67 seconds
    (manufacturer's results). And, surprisingly, this power doesn't come
    from a huge engine, but rather from a "small" 6.0 liter V8
    twin-turbocharged with dual intercoolers.

    This declared speed is
    impressive and some people think that such a figure is not even
    possible: 270 mph (435km/h), nearly 20 more than the Veyron.

    Its Barabus. But the Bugatti was Detroned already.
    SSC Ultimate Aero is going 440km/h, which isn't sure yet.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    No car has proven a higher speed than the Veyron yet so the Veyron is still king. SSC has only done 241mph thus far.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Officially the Koenigsegg is still the fastest car in the world. But i think they forgot to do their administration! :P

    The Brabus TKR hasn't been tested for top speed they are not going to because they already said its faster and if it doesn't turn out to be no rich person will buy it. That is what they do now a days to attract rich customers.

    i do not like the styling of that TKR. the front half looks TOO MUCH like the S7, and the rear is an almost EXACT take from the Zonda's. very original Barabus!

    I'm sure someone posted a thread similar to this already but still. Looks nice, has it been proven that it's faster than a Veyron?

    I think that 0-60 time was tested on slick tyres providing mucho grip but hardly any life in them. I don't think it would do too well in a race with those tyres!!

    Nope. Technically, the McLaren is still faster than it.

    The CCR recorded a speed of 387.87 kph, while McLaren recorded a speed of 391kph.

    To this day though, the Veyron is still the fastest. It's been seen by Guiness 3 times hitting 253Mph.

    <cough> KIT CAR <cough>

    ... and now Serious stuff

    The Veyron has been designed to FULL VAG specs ... this means in terms of durability (how long things last before they break, just ask someone about Belgium Pave ... cobblestones) ... then there's all the safety requirements ... I bet the Barabus and SCC haven't been designed to pass all the crash requirements in the world these days (and by pass I mean they'll have a margin on top of the requirement) ... then there's NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) or how much things shake and droan/boom ... having seen the Clarkson trip across Europe the Veyron is a VERY refined car ... I bet the other 2 aren't ...

    Well that's just a few things that don't really make these cars comparable to the Veyron ... a Veyron is a MAJOR feat of engineering ... anyone could make a seriously quick car if you put your mind to it!

    Oh and I'd still have an McLaren F1
    I'd rather be topless !

    Maybe, but the back sure doesn't.

    I bet the new bristol is quite refined but the fact that the Veyron is so fast yet comfortable, has room in it and won't brake down when you go more than 4 miles in it makes it better, is the sophisticated hypercar.
