SSC finally admits that the 331 mph run was not correct
Fun fact is that Dewetron says that they haven't even seen the raw files

What a joke, Shelby is blaming the video footage and Dewetron weren't there to verify that the GPS was used correctly. Unless Shelby does a re-run of the record attempt he will never be believed nor have any integrity.

Lmao, what else is to expect? Even 300 mph are almost impossible to achieve for a car. I seriously wonder what they were thinking, because now everyone has their eyes on the US again.

They should admit they lied and not come up with horrible excuses, they're just making it worse... :/

Or, they should just simply publish the "correct" video and everyone will be happy.


User avatar

SpeedKing  42m ago @benedekpuskas

Agreed they should own up to their lies. In the video at the 1:49 mark Ollie is fist pumping because he's been told that he just broke the record so the video is likely the bullshit so called record pass.

Cocobe  2w ago

Good for them. But honestly, I'd much rather have a K'egg or Chiron SS, and at the end all these speed records are becoming silly. None of them can match the acceleration of a ludicrous tesla or a 911 turbo S at a set of lights. Down the 1/4 mile, none of them are setting any records either.

It's gotten to the point of which cars accelerate the fastest above 300kph, above 400kph...


User avatar

SpeedKing  2w ago @Cocobe

"None of them can match the acceleration of a ludicrous tesla or a 911 turbo S at a set of lights." Yes but in my experience the greater buzz is the sound of a screaming V10/V12 NA engine which those cars could not even come close to replicating. The difference in acceleration from 60 mph is barely discernable but the aural bombardment is something you need to experience to appreciate :)


User avatar

Cocobe  1w ago @SpeedKing

The other day I saw someone putting a Ferrari F8 beside and a older NA Ferrari. The NA ferrari is much slower but many times louder. And I guess it's the same with the Huracan vs turbo Ferrari. When the speed difference becomes negligible, then the aural experience takes over, imo.

User avatar

FastestLaps  1w ago @Jeesmies

They have to do it. Who knows, maybe it takes off like airplane at 300 mph. You can't say for certain until you test it. Nobody has balls to do these tests. Except for Bugatti and SSC.


User avatar

196ss  1w ago @Cocobe

You really think Chiron can't match the acceleration of Turbo S or, God forbid, Tesla???


User avatar

Metajore  1w ago @196ss

Why are people even talking about 0-60 times anymore, only all wheel drive cars actually break those records and the difference is almost nothing, maybe we should focus on the 0-100 mph and 0-200 kmh records.


User avatar

CarTuner  1w ago @Metajore

Um i agree that they keep getting broken. Next we will have one that is at 100kmh in 0s, but some people still care about them [0-100 times]. When buying a fast car, you would definitely take 0-100 in to account.

SpeedKing  6d ago @196ss

Not from 0-60mph given the acceleration tests i've seen of the Chiron. Of course beyond that speed it rockets away. The TurboS and the 918 Spyder are the only production ICE cars that can match the Tesla Cheetah mode from 0-60 mph on a regular road surface.


User avatar

196ss  6d ago @SpeedKing

Even the base 1000hp Veyron from 2005 consistently achieved 100kph in 2,5 seconds in tests, which makes it on par with 918 and 992 Turbo S.
Do you think Chiron would be slower?
EV and hybrids could have faster 0-30mph thanks to instant torque, but after that when Chiron hooks up, there would be no competition.
Anyway, as already noted above, 0-60mph/0-100kph challenge is turning into splitting hairs. 0,1-0,2 seconds not really matters when car accelerates to given speed faster than you have time to sneeze.


User avatar

SpeedKing  5d ago @196ss

In this Chiron video i have calculated that the 0-100 km/h time was 2.65sec using 2% speedo overread so yes we're talking small margins but you need to be aware that most of the acceleration figures come from Bugatti and have not been replicated to my knowledge. We already know that Bugatti won't allow any motor mags to release independent acceleration figures for their cars.

 


User avatar

196ss  5d ago @SpeedKing

I'm pretty sure that's not the best Chiron capable of.
And I know about this stupid shameful trick from Bugatti.
Why then make any claims if you don't allow to check their validity?


User avatar

196ss  5d ago @SpeedKing

If you use pause button in your video, you'll get the following numbers:
0-60mph (96kph) - 2,40 sec
0-100kph - 2,55 sec
0-200kph - 6,40 sec
0-300kph - 13,40 sec
0-380kph - 28,50 sec
Not far from factory claims.


User avatar

SpeedKing  5d ago @196ss

Bugatti are being elitist not unlike the price tag of their cars. I've seen the 1/4 and VBox acceleration figures that DragTimes posted back in Nov 2018. The DA was 200 ft which is unusual for Florida(16deg) so great conditions for making power. The best 60-130mph was 4.80 which is worse than in the vid above but the problem is that they used the car speedo for the figures which therefore means jackshit given that we don't know what the speedo error is. The 60-130mph in the video was 4.65 sec compared to 4.80(VBox)


User avatar

Lambolover  5d ago @SpeedKing

It could have done better
It had aftermarket wheels aswell which is heavier than normal wheels I believe
Also if you want GPS figures these videos could help

 

 


User avatar

SpeedKing  5d ago @Lambolover

The figures in the standing mile were 60-130mph 4.81 sec and 100-200km/h in 4.11 so Bugatti's claim of 0-200 km/h of 6.1 sec doesn't add up. What's more Bugatti's claim 0-200 in 6.1 is not backed up by the speedo 0-200 km/h which is 6.7 sec. Bugatti are full of shit, no wonder they don't want anyone testing their cars.


User avatar

Lambolover  5d ago @SpeedKing

Idk I got 4.6 4.7 secs 60-130
Maybe if someone was crazy enough to test his Chiron frequently on a Dragstrip like Dragtimes, we could have seen some good numbers


User avatar

SpeedKing  5d ago @Lambolover

Even if you could get 60-130 in 4.6 sec their claim of 0-200 km/h in 6.1 sec is still far-fetched because that would mean 100-200 km/h would need to be 3.7 sec given they claim 0-100km/h in 2.4 sec. I'm not buying their bullshit :)

This is officially my new favorite hypercar. It’s also the only one of these claimed “300 mph+ cars” that has reached customers. Bugatti’s isn’t due until next year, and Koenigsegg’s hasn’t been delivered yet. Love the engine, love the looks, love the interior.

dr. cosimo  8m ago

but the lexsux has the better exhaust sound, right ? lol

for 1m and murican quality ? it won't hold up for very long

you now have the c8 with mid-engine at a bargain price, z06 will do a lot of harm to vw-911 group :)


User avatar

aaayy  8m ago @dr. cosimo

“It won’t hold up for very long”
You like Ferraris. The whole reason Lamborghini exists is because Ferrari’s were unreliable and Ferruccio was pissed off.


User avatar

dr. cosimo  8m ago @aaayy

son, we're in 2020 not 1960's

both of them have stepped up their game, while vw downgraded the whole 9-11 beetle quality, every year it gets worse.

they started with the interior when 996 was launched and today, they are doing it with mechanical parts.


User avatar

aaayy  8m ago @dr. cosimo

Eh, I’m not convinced. Car and a Driver’s Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifolgio was in the dealership longer than the time they spent driving it. And that uses a Ferrari-based V6.

what program do you use? or are you working within engineering and using a program on your work PC?


User avatar

HighGear  11m ago @lafars

Nothing as complex as that - ther'es a website where you can enter all of the car stats and it calculates the acceleration. However, the website is not always accurate, in which case I use a book called "Fast Car Physics" (C. Edmonson).


User avatar

HighGear  11m ago @lafars

I keep an archive of car data, magazine test results as well as simulations. This archive ranges from the Acura ARX-05 to the VLF Force 1 V10 and more! If anyone would like a simulation run in a specific car, leave a request in the comments for that car.


User avatar

FastestLaps  11m ago @HighGear

For cars from the Fastestlaps catalog there is http://dragrace.me. Calculates relative position on a drag strip at preset distances 100 meters, 200 meters etc.


User avatar

SpeedKing  11m ago

The acceleration figures are not achievable on the street. Not even sure that it's possible on a fully prepped dragstrip without slicks...


User avatar

HighGear  11m ago @SpeedKing

I can calculate the numbers again with physics. Again, the website is not always accurate - perhaps due to the immense power figures. However, I always try to simulate drag strip performance if possible.


User avatar

SpeedKing  11m ago @HighGear

F1's have trouble getting traction off the line hence why their 0-100 km/h times are often slower than the P100D or 918 Spyder so i can't see the Tuatara with RWD getting sufficient traction even with the clever electronics to do 0-100 mph in 4.4 on the street. Anyway 2020 looks like being the year that lots of records will be broken with all the hypercars coming out.
