    6.0-liter V8 engine equipped with two turbochargers and dual intercoolers produces a maximum of 1005 hp

    The upcoming Barabus TKR accelerates from zero to 62 mph in just 1.67 seconds and achieves a maximum speed of 270 mph

    Barabus Sportscars plans to sell around 300-400 TKRs over the three-year period. The car is on sale now for mere £360,000 and first vehicles will reach their respective owners in a four-month time.

    Seems nice and everything but it's not a Veyron slayer. That's just a tightly contained dragster from the look of it. You aren't going to be cruising comfortably though Germany at 200 MPH in that, plus the gear box won't be lasting 10 years.
    Plus the Veyron is limited to 254 miles an hour.....

    The Veyron's run as fastest production car has already ended.

    Is there any point in these cars? It probably does about 2 miles to the gallon, hardly very enviromentally friendly, he he.:biggun:

    I agree, it's very ugly. That Barabus TKR isn't any better though. Bastard lovechild of the Saleen S7 and a Pagani Zonda if you ask me. If we're after the best LOOKING fast car, why don't we go back to the Koenigsegg CCR?

    I don't like the back end of the Bugatti to much, but the Lambos interior has like a sort of classic look to me..I like that.

    Yea it is, limited by air resistance. The veyron had a really short run as the fastest production car. I personally hate the veyron, it's ugly, way too expensive, heavy and can't take turns for ****. It's got an amazing motor sure, but everything else isn't up to supercar standards.

    But yea, that barabus sure is ugly, but you won't really have time to look at it when it flies by you at 270 MPH.:)

    The outside looks fab, but the inside is ... Very poor. The fabric looks very cheap.

    Oh dear look at the lambo's dials!!! Looks very 1980's although they've probably switched the LEDs for a LCD screen. Still it would be crap if it broke, u'd loose every gauge!

    Awww, I love the Reventon. Modelled off an F-22 Raptor. Anyone who hasn't, you HAVE to see the dash. It's so cool. And the alloy rims are designed to suck in air as the rotate in order to cool down the brakes.

    I would have that car in half a heart beat. It's either that, or an Aston Martin DBS/DB9 (or the road version of the DBR9).

    As for the Veyron, I like the looks, and the W16 engine (Jesus Christ guys...), but I don't think I would choose it over some other cars.

    Anyone seen the new Nissan Skyline (renamed to just Nissan GTR)? It's incredible.
