2.0??? I don't believe it. I mean I have heard of many different kinds of Vettes, but I doubt one that goes 0-60 in 2 secs. Please try to find this article
The Twin-Turbo Callaway Corvette 4.44s
The Snake skinner 3.87s (my fav)

There is even the Blue Devil, A SUPER C6 with 625hp at 2900lbs with the 427!!!
But I don't think that was 2.0 secs either

It's called the Sledgehammer, and makes 1200 hp. It's a beast. I think it's got something like an 8 liter engine or something.

EDIT: Actually I was wrong. It's just some guy who modified his vette to 1200 hp (normally aspirated). I could have sworn I heard something about it, but whatever. Anyway, here is a link to the 1200 hp vette. phil.tobin.net/Hoover/top.html

Edit by Cliffy: I just put that link in 'url' tabs for ya..so It's clickable, that's the 'edit' you see

Hey abless, does it go 0-60 in 2s? I mean that is fast as heck for a car with no NOS no Supercharger. Bet it odesn't do to well at the pump. How many miles to the gallon you think that thing gets?? A better estimate would be how many 1/4 miles to the gallon

i can't imagine that it could be as bad as that ridiculous bugatti veyron or w/e...
1.33 gallons per minute accoriding the the manufacturers. Talk about ridiculous.

i guess maybe that's reasonably descent if you are going 250 mph, but stilll ridiculous.

NOS? Why do you keep calling it NOS? That's one of the orginal companies that made the systems. Lay off the Fast & Furious crap.
