@FastestLaps: new competitor to this just released: Zenos E10. Will the website immediately register a new company if I submit it?

250-260 km/h sounds possible to me.

This wont do 170Mph, 300Bhp is barely enuff, but more importantl its Aerodynamics are not good, All those exposed open body panels, open tyres for more rolling resistance, and its aggressive gearing, i even doubt it would do past 155Mph.

@ PeterN: 1,100 LB curb weight and almost 300 horsepower, this little beastie will do it. Driving this at those speeds would be either really fun, or really frightening, depending on who you are and how big your cajones are.

170MPH!!! I thought it was more like 150

I think the top speed is 170 MPH, I'll bet this car is a little handful.

I wonder what the lap time is for this car on Nordschleife.
By the way, is there any top speed information?
