Totally impractical.. there's no place you could legally drive at that speed and there has to be some nod to reality over the pricetag

but hell $ 1.2 million for a car that goes 400 kmph and accelerates 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds and puts out 1.3G's..

I'm surprised that they actually have buyers lined up [ then again ] .. they sell as many cars in a year what GM sells in a minute [ or used to ]

oh, they bought SAAB just so they can make ' practical' cars as well..

what is it with men and chrome? and leather interiors? and buttons and dials? and speed? and...

Sound move given your location and where you work but doesn't fit my mental image at all. :D
It's ideal in London. My mate does say that I look like Bowser (from supermario fame) when I'm driving it.

You maybe want to skip wearing the studded leather jacket then.

Speaking for myself, if it doesn't come with a great big FO gun as standard I'm not interested...

So is this SSC Ultimate Aero TT

...

Specs of the Machine that clocked the Production Record in '07 are..

6.35 litre, V8 Twin Turbo 1,183 bhp at 6950 rpm
Highest Recorded Speed: 413km/h, beating the Veyron's 407 km/h
Highest Theoretical Speed: Roughly 437km/h

An interesting fact is on cars like these, If you were to hit roughly the 405km/h mark, you would burn out your tires in more or less 15 minutes.

Edit..

The Veyron still has the highest acceleration... 0-100km/h in 2.46 sec
AND this baby has 10 Radiators.
AND to hit the Top Speed, the driver needs to use the special Top Speed Key, and go through a checklist to verify that he knows what the fcuk he's doing.

Now that is a nice car! I think the grill on the Veron makes it look like it's just had a shock.
