Agreed with BumRush. And to the anonymous posters talking about the jeep: Remove yourselves from the gene pool, you dolts.

Hennessey R/t is 2.9 0-60!!! Plus it keeps climbing from there!! Although handleing is probably its big negative.

Sorry but im gonna have to agree wit dat udda anoonymous, the Jeep SRT would own this in a straightline, im not sure about around a track though, i still find it hard to believe this is as fast as a DB9 around the Top Gear Track, are we absolutley sure it was stock?

Jeep R/t would beat this anyway

It never would. Maybe on launch but after 50 km/h the heavy and boxy Jeep would fall behind quickly.

I do not think it looks like a truck, plus the Jeep R/t would beat this anyway, especially the Hennessey version.
