who wants to go faster?

ok, check out this new "car"

Acabion GTBO

(in the 350hp model)

top speed 342mph (really)

0-280mph takes only 40 seconds

180-280mph takes 10 seconds

available at up to 700hp, but they havent been tested yet...

1.3liter hayabusa engine

pretty nuts

id add pics but they are too big, to go seriouswheels.com to see

Wait...so a 1.3L engine makes 350hp, and is capable of up to 700?!...

Is the engine used on a motorcycle, because 340mph from 350hp is impossible...

How about a bit more of an explanation lol...

1.3 liter hayabus engine....I think its a motorcycle im about 95% sure. Thats fast, but the numbers seem a little off to me. I'd say its like 5 seconds at most for 0-60 that means from 60-180 that takes 25 seconds...why does it lack power in this area?

Hmm, A 3d concept of a street version of a Bonneville dry lakes "motorcycle." And even then, the speed is not even likely. 370 mph? BS.

the fastest land speed record motorcycle record is 332.103, with a one way top speed momentarily of 370. And this is it:



This had a 400+cubic inch, 900 hp, small block Chevy.

I thought that sounded far-fetched.

I'm pretty sure environmental factors would not allow that to reach those kinds of speeds.

Unless I was to build one...doesn't look too complicated, just a 1.3L high revving engine and a carbon fibre body, and some wheels
