Sounds like sooooooooooo much fun!

I've been 0-110 in 2secs and it mangled my face with the G-Force I can imagine this to be the same



Can't wait for top gear to get their hands on it

I agree with rob on that one. maybe in perfect conditions on a specially prepared surface etc... but I would have thought any car that size with that much power would struggle getting traction.

unless its 4wd, or has 19 inch WIDE rear wheels, its not gonna manage that

this years british rallycross cars arent that quick, and they are purpose built racers with about 700bhp and are about 650kg

arnt drag strips measured to 0.500? so 0.499 would be a false start and 0.501 would be excellent??

I read about the Brabus TKR in yesterday's paper. Impressive figures on paper but I'd definitely like to see it proven.
