i dont really care man, i am just sayin. I think it is the fastest production car right now. Other then the bugati veryon or whatever that thing is called starts being made this is the fastest that i know of. And the cc8s hauls some serious ass with "only" 655 hp can you imagine what 800 would feel like. Like i said before if its not 9 seconds flat then i would think it would be close.

Re: Fastest Production Car

Just thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth. The fastest car is the mclaren, it is the only one of these ones test that has been independently tested. As far as I know the speed reached was less then mclarens claim so no car company is total reliable. In terms of current production cars the murcielago is the fastest 'production' car. Most automotive journalists class a production car as one that you can just walk into a dealer and order one. This is something you can't do with many of these cars. This rules out cars such as the enzo and the likes because they are already sold before they are made.

Re: Fastest Production Car

Bare in mind the CCR is still a new car, only just heard about it in fact. The reason some cars havnet been top speed tested was the manufactures didnt realy care. I mean ferrari didnt want the enzo to have a high top speed just be quick around the track!..which is a sense is more sensible as there are only a hand full of places around the world which will let you do 240mph+ so why bother designing a car that can technically do over 240mph but in reality cant. I havent full gone through this thread but please say no one has suggested that the buggati veyron is the fastest car?..stupid if they have as it is 2 tons and bugatti said if the owners wish to drive over 200mph they will send them an extra pair of tyres because it puts so much strian on them to do it. Awful car in my opinoon and probably the way things are going wont get into production! ....the Koenigsegg gets my vote though!

Guys!

The fastest PRODUCTION CAR ever timed OFFICALLY is the McLaren F1!

There is NO other cars who have CERTIFIED PROOF of obtaining higher top speed as a PRODUCTION CAR!!!

No need to babble and wabble about Corvettes. Vipers, Bugattis, blblablablablblalala....

There is faster cars out there, no doubt, but they have not OFFICALLY proven to be!!!

Imagine a McLaren with twin turbos and NOS for high-speed records!

No, you're not wrong in any way!

The Dauer 962 is the fastest road legal car produced in more than 1 unit!
The McLaren is the fastest "roadcar" with a production status which require over 100 units!

Every car has the potnential to be lightining fast if you just spend enough $$ on it!

What matters is what performance it was given by the manufacturer!

The Saab 9-3 Viggen hits 60 in 2.1 seconds. But it only tops out at 165.

Re: Fastest Production Car

What i think would be a great race is these cars on Nurburgring: TVR Cerbera Speed 12, McLaren F1, Koenigsegg CC V8S, Bugatti Veyron and a 911 GT1.

Re: Fastest Production Car

Buy Project Gotham 2, its the only place you could do that! I still think that its amazing that the McLaren still officially holds the top speed for a production car after over 10 years.

Ya, why don't you slap a couple turbos on the McLaren and watch the pistons detonate because the compression is too high.

Re: Fastest Production Car

The Mclaren f1 is the most amazing car ever made and the Swedeshave proven that. They feel they have to put 2 huge turbos on a v8 to make a massive 800bhp (just less than 200bhp more than the F1) to beat the Mclaren, i still think koenigsegg is the only compnay out their that wants the highest production car speed record, every othe manufacture is aiming at more practical feel and speed round a track. The F1 does it all, speed, looks, handling and i especialy love the LM version!...that would kill a enzo hands down in a straight line and round a track. Bare in mind every single report i have read about Mclaren Vs Enzo, Porsche GT, Lambo etc..every single one says the mclaren is still better despite being 10 years old. One of the best cars ever made!
