We have a new top dog for top speed in a production car. Take a ride on the record setting run in the Nevada desert.

No doubt. After watching what it looks like with the road passing under at 285 mph, 140 or so looks like a mellow cruise.

Exactly!! I remember on Top Gear when James May took the Veyron up to 250 he said once he got under the 100 mark he had to remind himself that he couldn't just open the door and get out!!!

biggrin.gif biggrin.gif I'll bet! The fastest I have ever been in an automobile is probably 140 or 150 mph and at that time I thought that was just crazy fast. Doubling that just seems crazy but I would still love to experience it.

Quickest I've been in a car was over 160, but going back 25 years or so I was racing a full blown Pro-stock Drag Bike which would regularly hit speeds of over 160 on a 1/4 mile. Kawasaki GPZ 900 Motor, 1180 overbore with a Turbo and Air Shifter system! (We were the first guys running these systems in this country!)
Sounds good until you compare it to a Street Legal Kawasaki H2 from today that will smash it for acceleration, Top Speed and overall Horsepower!!!
I rode one last year and scared myself stupid!!

You're a sick man, Jonesey! Respect! I always thought you guys that ran those drag bikes were just nuts. At least you have some protection inside of a vehicle but on a bike you are totally exposed and a slight mistake can cost you big time. cool.gif I learned early on that I was a bit too much of a loose cannon to ride motorcycles.

There is a certain amount of 'Nuttiness' for sure, but in my defence... at least I only like going fast in a straight line!! It's the MOTO GP, World Superbike riders etc that are the true lunatics! Falling off going fast around corners is when it hurts most!!!
