    Cool Barabus TKR takes over as world's fastest car

    Barabus TKR takes over as world's fastest car



    The Bugatti Veyron may no longer be the world's fastest car.
    Today — following a number of teasers and leaks — Barabus
    officially unveiled the TKR: a new 1005 horsepower supercar
    the automaker says is capable of doing zero to 60 mph in 1.67
    seconds. What's more, the car reportedly has a top speed of
    270 mph
    — nearly 20 more than the Veyron. Power comes from
    a 6.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged with dual intercoolers. The car
    has a full carbon fibre body and chassis. Further details remain
    sparse, but the automaker says it will sell the car for £360,000,
    which should translate to around $500,000, using typical
    automotive market conversion rates.


    It's worth noting that Barabus sometimes refers to the car as
    being able to hit 60 mph in "under 2 seconds," rather than the
    stated 1.67. Even so, there is still some doubt among enthusiasts
    if such a figure is even possible. Nonetheless, the car is on display
    at the 2006 British International Motor Show, and we expect to
    get more details in the near future. The TKR is said to have been
    in development for the last 10 years. The car is to be made in Italy
    and the power plant is built in the United Kingdom. Worldwide
    volume is projected to be 300-400 cars over the estimated
    three-year production run.

    oO dunno kinda like the rawness of a twin turbo v8 as opposed to a twin engine *it's gonna cost 10 grand soon as anything goes wrong*...+ the Barabus engine looks like it was thrown together in a shed somewhere, which is cool


    can you imagine the noise it makes! :P

    Saw this yesterday at the motor show, stunning car! would like to see the under 2 seconds 0-60 time though.

    I know drag cars do 0-100 in 0.9seconds but they do have 6000bhp and tyres the size of a mini nearly, so 0-60 is achiveable I would say in my books, you just need to get the traction!

    Looks a bit like the bat-mobile without the jet engine.
