While the Bugatti Veyron may be the most refined example in the ultra-exclusive â€˜worldâ€™s fastest road carâ€™ category, it definitely isnâ€™t the king as long as speed remains the defining criteria for the club.
After the SSC Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo topped the Veyronâ€™s top speed by almost 4km/h (411.76km/h to 407.5km/h), another wildly-named contender â€“ the Maxximus G-Force â€“ has now entered the arena.
While the G-Force hasnâ€™t recorded a top speed time yet, itâ€™s pulling out all the right numbers elsewhere, with the 0-100km/h sprint falling in 2.134 seconds at Rockingham Raceway in North Carolina, USA.
Powered by a 7.0 litre V8 making over 1194kW (1600hp), the G-Force gets all that phenomenal power to the ground through a paddle-shifted sequential gearbox.
Huge 14-inch brakes with six-piston calipers help the car achieve a 0-100-0mph (0-160-0km/h) time of 8.861 seconds.
Brought to life by David B. McMahan, the Maxximus G-Force is based on the same chassis and body as the Ultima GTR, although it runs its own unique engine setup.
