Power (specifically HP, not torque), Drag area (coefficient of drag X frontal area), and gearing are the most important figures when considering top speed. There\'s also lift to consider though, because you can\'t exactly reach 200mph if you begin to lift and spin out at 180mph. :S

Weight has nothing to do with Top Speed, i dunno its Cd or its gearing, but i highly doubt this would go past 186mph.

I think 200 mp/h could be reachable for this car. I mean, it\'s quite lightweight and 400 BHP isn\'t bad.

yeah 200mph is very hard to believe. last time when i checked on this car it had a confirmed top speed of 182mph, thats much more believable.

has anyone ever confirmed 200?! its clearly not slippery enough for that kind of speed! besides that i gotta say i love the design, sometimes i feel like the only one but if this looks bad i dont get how anyone can stand a modern day ferrari.
