That's right, a 1986 Pontiac Trans-Am is officially Europe's fastest street legal car. This black beauty is packing over 1400hp and has recently set an official top speed of 407.134km/h at Germany's Papenburg test track.

That's Bugatti Veyron fast and the best part is not that it's substantially cheaper than the Bugatti, but that Paul and the team from Polly Motorsport are confident the car can reach 435km/h - which would make it the fastest car in the world! Looks like the SCC Ultimate Aero is going to have a real fight on its hands.

The car is extensively worked, though figuring out exactly what's been done to its stonking 8.9-litre boosted V8 is a bit of a mystery to us due to translation issues. You can check out the car's details at the Polly Motorsport website, and be sure to let us know if it makes sense to you.

Some videos of the car in action can be found here and, while we can't understand what's being said, "Bloody Fast!" appears to be universal.
