If I recall correctly, I think Mr. Lingenfelter was apart of the engineering team that developed the Sledgehammer. Still, it was a Callaway.

Anyways what about the 4-12? I've heard rumors that it may not even reach production?

Re: Fastest Car in the world?

i havent heard much from it lately. for some reason i doubt it will be made. speaking of the 4-12 whats up with the buggati thats suppose to beat the 241mph the vyron(or however you spell it) the reason i dont like the chrysler is cause if you ask me, they just basically copied the buggati quad turbo's W16 engine. i dunno, but question, what does the koenigsegg run in the 1320?

I would doubt that Chrysler had copied the Venyron. The 4-12 has a V12 quad turbo, so I don't really see any relation to engine, and I'm sure everything else would be legit to.

Here's a link to the CCR/8.

http://www.koenigsegg.se/thecars/index.asp?submenu=4

It says 9 seconds, but it also states it can run 395kmh (which is hasn't), so I would say it would depend on how its launched (my guess: low/mid 9's......still blistering fast!!).

Fastest car

Kurtdg.... go back to the website and read it again. The one car broke the OFFICIAL speed record at 388kph. However if ya read it some more, the other model goes even faster 390+kph. The track they were running on would not sustain a higher speed. (You can only go so fast around a corner. Let's take these cars out to the Bonneyville salt flats and let them go; strait-line full out and see who takes it. I am a Chev-man big time but I'd love the Viper to kick on them all. ..... and yes even that Corvette (can't stand 'em LOL) .

I do not know if this will come out, but I have an article stipulating that Bugatti's Veyron did pass the Koenigsegg. I am going to try and paste the article (one small page), but if not, will type in the website, and also try to find a date on this.

Re: Fastest Car in the world?

That's pretty cool. Coolest thing about that artical is the part about that top speed key. Sounds like a space ship or some James Bond shit.

lol...this is another example of turbos being superior over superchargers...lol

I'd still buy the K car instead of the Bugatti. The K car is fuckin bad ass looking.
