    Default 9FF GT9 : Preparing to beat veyrons speed record

    Specialist Porsche tuner 9ff is going after the Bugatti Veyron’s top speed record with this, the GT9, a 900bhp-plus mid-engined supercar loosely based on the 911. The car is currently being assembled at 9ff’s impressive new factory in Dortmund, Germany, in time for the annual Auto Motor und Sport top speed shoot-out at the Nardo test track.
    9ff boss Jan Fatthauer hopes the GT9 will achieve 409kph (254mph) to eclipse the Veyron’s record of 407.5kph (253.2mph). We reckon it’s a good bet – in late 2004 9ff’s 911-based V400, powered by the company’s 840bhp engine, hit 387.9kph (241mph).
    According to Fatthauer, the GT9’s 4.2-litre flat-six will produce 'at least 910, possibly 950bhp’ thanks to the advantageous positioning of its twin turbos afforded by the mid-engined layout.
    If the GT9 makes 409kph on the 7.8-mile bowl it will be an impressive achievement – the Bugatti hit its speed on the 5.6-mile straight at VW’s Ehra-Lessien test track.
    It’s a measure of 9ff’s growing reputation that it has already sold two GT9s at 400,000 euros plus local taxes.
    It doesnt mention anything about the SCC's record

    ewwww that thing is ugly and besides that the veyron is stock, that "car-like-thing" isn't. I rather have a 2006 Hennessey Dodge Viper SRT-10 Coupe Venom 1000 (1000hp) I think it already beated veyron's top speed once.

    Beating the Veyron's top speed isn't that impressive anymore anyway, a lot of cars have done it. Tbh i don't much like the Veyron.

    as said many times above ... a stripped out racer unlike the Veyron which is designed to full VAG design standards
    I'd rather be topless !

    They babied it like it was a newborn whereas the Veyron was compared to someone "who just got on with it and didn't need any special treatment".

    Viper required:

    warming of the tyres
    explanation of shift points
    extreme cooling of the engine
    more stuff to silly to list
    I'm a bit mental.

    Its going to beat it. I doesn't really matter, the top speed is all its going to achieve and its not going to hold it for very long.

    I disagree. Although i'm a huge fan of Vipers . The Barabus TKR doesn't need any preparing or anything for the track, it's not fully stripped out or anything, it does 270mph and its £360,000 as well, and i think it's better looking than the Veyron (doesn't mean its good looking, just means the Veyron is ugly), and despite what everything thinks, it's NOT a modified S7.
