Well you only need to look at the differences between many of the figures for 0-60 mph and 0-100km/h here ...

:) Ha, both Dragy and VBox have roll-out capability if one chooses to use it :)

This is essential reading if you want to understand how the dragstrip stage lights work. Saves me having to go ...

The Senna is obviously faster on track however the LaFerrari has less downforce and more power so it has a ...

I think you'll find that the SF90 will accelerate quicker than the 765LT beyond 100mph. I do however agree that ...

AWD Nismo 400R vs RWD Callaway most likely spinning the wheels would explain the 0-100km/h times..

Yeah as i just said to Cocobe i had forgotten that it isn't as quick outside launch mode where it ...

" The 760hp is only activated for launch mode. Normally the car only has 616hp." Ah that's right i had ...

Ha yes of course. There's money to be made on certain Koenigseggs.. https://www.cnbc .com/2019/05/24/ real-estate-inve stor-makes-11875 -a-day-in-profit -on-koenigsegg-s upercar.html

From the start of the main straight to the braking point at the end it took both the Taycan TurboS ...

Is Hoppel trying to inflate the price to match the overinflated Tesla share price? :P

Is this an attempt at humour?

Nah that's an estimation by FL. In this test against a Panamera it clocked 19.2 sec. No speed given but ...

Actually Jim Mero is more accomplished than you realise and has done many laps at the Nurb :) https://latimesb logs.latimes.com /money_co/2008/1 0/jim-mero-a-con versation-with-t he-once-and-futu re-king-of-the-r ing.html ...

In high performance engines double roller chains are reasonably durable and while a gear drive will last longer they have ...

Yes and one only needs to look at the GT3RS lap of 6:56 and according to dyno tests it has ...

Nah it's not as capable as you think and it was not fast at Spa where it should have been ...

Well unless he's driving the SVJ there lol

I can tell you with absolute certainty that the Kegg One could never do a 6:40 lap at the Nurb. ...

The real Koenigsegg One didn't do quite as well :P  

Actually the lap by Englert in the TaycanTurboS was 1:54.8. When you compare the laps it's pretty clear that Gebhardt ...

The max speed on the main straight at the Nurb only makes a small difference to the overall laptime eg. ...

It would need Cup2R's and Lars Kern driving to maybe just break the 7 min barrier...

lol yeah talk about delusional. Are they part of the flat Earth society?

Tesla Roadster will never break 6 min at the Nurb. If it breaks the 6 min 30 sec mark i'll ...

Not on the street it doesn't, the SF90 will match or even beat the 918 Spyder to 60mph. Ferrari claim ...

Actually he got 9.88@146mph on the highway in a friends 765LT :)

"A 1.8-mile road course was added in 1969 and in early 1970 the work on the full sized oval was ...

Ha the car that was unveiled in 2017 and won't be available until 2022 lol

Car&Driver tested the Chiron and got 9.4 @ 158mph over the 1/4 mile which presumably was not on a prepped ...

Very much depends whether they race on a dragstrip or the street and as we already know the SF90 will ...

Burnout mode to heat the tyres on a prepped track equals AWD EV traction which makes the 765LT a weapon ...

The 765LT 60ft time of 1.49sec is the quickest i've seen for a RWD production car anywhere on a dragstrip(apart ...

Yes but does 90% fuel and all the various fluids add up to 110kg as in the 765LT? I'm not ...

The kerb weight of the 765LT, as measured by DragTimes using electronic car scales is 3032lb(1375kg) with a 1/4 of ...

So do you think that the kerb weight should include a full tank of fuel to get the most realistic ...

Initially it was a concept but given the interest Shelby say they will produce a limited number of them for ...

Autocar even said that the surface was very cold and who knows if the Trofeo's were even warm so wheelspin ...

According to Shelby the Super Snake Sport does 0-60 mph in 3.45sec and 0-100 mph in 8.3 sec. https://www.shel by.com/Vehicles/ F-150-Super-Snak e-Sport#642967-p erformance ...

McLaren claim the 620R does 0-200km/h(124.5m ph) in 8.1 sec whereas Autocar managed 0-120mph in 8.6 sec. I am more inclined ...

There will always be isolated cases where fraud is committed. Louisiana is very much a Republican state and Trump won ...

I agree, in a perfect world one would eliminate all the variables and have optimised speed tests but even then ...

Yes with the probable 3-4% speedo overread the speedo reading of 372 km/h equates to actual speed being in the ...

Just wait till the TurboS gets tested on dynos in stock form. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind ...

"Now they are irrelevant." How is Guardian irrelevant? It still publishes valid articles.

To be fair Guardian were reporting comments made by Republican senator Bob Corker so it wasn't a claim made by ...

The ZR1 Nurb lap of 7:04 with Mero driving started on cold tyres and i believe there was some traffic ...
