im not entirely sure 0-60 in 1.67 is even possible with those hp #'s and the top speed projected to be 270mph..

you could have 0-60 with 4wd and sticky sticky wrinkle wall slicks with those hp #'s and a 4.10 gearing but you wouldnt have anything close to that top speed unless you had like 7+ gears.. possible these days, but well, time will tell.

i call empty promise.

OK... the comparison between the Veyron and this thing is making me ill! First off this thing looks like something me and my college buddies would build in my garage with their daddy's money! It's using some ieteration of a GM pushrod V8 VS. Buggatti's W16 quad turbo uber tech mill, it appears to be using a somewhat traditional mid engine trans axle setup VS. Buggatti's use of one of the most advanced DSG transaxles ever developed! Anybody can slap a couple of turbo's on an aluminum small block and make big HP #'s! Hell... I've gotten 500+ from a freakin VR6 single turbo! The thing is, the Veyron is one of the most technologically advanced machines on the planet! This thing looks like a freakin kit car with a botox addiction and an L.A. wardrobe. It can acheive high speed because it is a very bare bones type of car wheras the Veyron is incredibly heavy and still acheives unbelievable performance #'s. I'd love to see how stable this newcomer is at 200+ mph whereas the Buggatti has advanced stablity aerodynamics that must be activated before exceeding a certain speed! Alright to make a long story short.... there's no comparison!
