Stop using the vimulator as a source, it's total bull crap.

Formula One cars get ten stars for their acceleration and launch.

The 401 Javelin should have (at least) seven stars for its acceleration. Mosler MT900 (435 hp) gets 6.95 stars, Lamborghini Murcielago (572 hp) and Dodge Viper SRT10 (500 hp) would have 6.9 stars, and the 2000 Saleen S7 (non-turbo) would have 6.8 stars. The problem is - the 401 Javelin has very poor launch due to its high drag coefficient.

I agree, a fine fast AMC Javelin. This "401" engine was available from 1971-1974. In the "Standard Guide to American Muscle Cars, 3rd edition" they refer to only two tests for this car. The first in 1972 with a 0-60 mph in 8.3, and 1/4 mile in 16.1; and the second test in 1973 with 0-60 in 7.7 seconds, and the 1/4 mile in 15.5; unfortunately they don't quote the magazine source so I won't add the acceleration times.

The fastest mass-produced Javelin in 1971.

@ Super8: It does bear a slight resemblance.

This is 401 and perhaps the fastest AMC in that day. The looks somehow very similar to 1970 Shelby GT500

@ Super8: What a breath of fresh air!, a real AMC Javelin AMX, not the 655 horsepower 440 C.I. twin turbo red herrings that Classics Dreamin has been adding. :D

The AMC Javelin AMX 401. This is the fastest Javelin in 1971. I hope site glitch will not erase this car again
