Production cars are on their ways to customers.

honestly, I really don't know what this car is for. It's more than 2ft longer than a Mclaren 720s/P1. It'll be difficult to drive in the city/daily. On the track, it has too much power and not enough grip, a Mclaren 620R would probably be MUCH better, especially its designed to fit with slicks. It doesn't have the highest speed. It also doesn't have AWD so it won't be the fastest for drag races. The only thing it'll be best at, is rolling drag races. That's a bit too niche market if you ask me.

The Speedtail has recorded a speed of 250 mph at Johnny Bohmer Proving Ground's runway no less that 30 times in testing. Impressive

Can someone do a simulation for acceleration on this thing? I'm guessing 0-60 in 2.4 seconds.

Only very basic power/weight type calculation can be done, assuming some arbitrary coefficient of drag.

This is not going to be made for acceleration, although it will accelerate very well in the higher speed ranges, due to low drag (if it really is as low drag as it looks).

wonder what the drag coefficient of this is and what it could do with 1600hp (aftermarket tune?)
