It may be faster than the Veyron, but it's nowhere near as sleek and sexy! The rear is horrendous!

I think its a load of horse-poo. The Veyron has 1000 hp and manages 252 mph, and it is DESIGNED for top speed. Lots of work went into the Veyron to bust the 400kph barrier. I just don't see a Noble/Saleen S7 ripoff making 270 mph a reality. I looked at the website and the engine pic is a small black chevy, twin turboed. Yeah, that can make 1000mph all day long. Problem is that for whatever reason the designers are thrilled it has coil-on-plug ignition....and the pic they show has a MSD distrubutor. Hmmmm.

I know of a few race cars that have hit 260+ on the Mulsanne Straight, and those were aerodynamic cars with in excess of 1200hp.

Also, 1.67 seconds? WHATEVER. An AWD rally car with 600+ hp that weighs 1800 pounds can manage low 3s, high 2s. Keep in mind that rally car is TRACTION limited the entire time. 0-60 in 1.67 seconds means you are going from standstill to 60 in 72 feet....not bloody likely unless you have buckets of VHT and crinklewall tires. Load of bunk.

Yeah I'd say it's having special tires like wrinklewalls..to pull those launch times.
