    I wonder what's the top speed of this thing...anyway I dont see it smashing the 919 Evos record but it will more than likely beat the Aventador SVJ. I'm thinking it will run around 6:20-6:30, depending on its straight line speed on the back straight.

    I'd say somewhere between 300-330 kmh. With the massive amount of aero and 670 hp I don't see it being much faster than that.

    I think it topped out at 240 km/h at Pikes Peak. They've probably changed the reduction ratio for this run though.
    If I had to guess I'd say 280 km/h.

    Edit: Remember, this thing doesn't have gears so changing the reduction ratio a lot in order to facilitate a very high top speed will hamper acceleration everywhere except for maybe 3 places; the final part of the run down to Schwedenkreutz, the bottom of the Fuchsrohre and on the Dottinger Hohe.
    I doubt it will top out going up the hill from Bergwerk. But who knows, the acceleration on this thing is mental.

    It's basically a Rolls-Royce in there!

    Huh? :confused:

    I know of two ways to write it:

    1. Nürnburgring
    2. Nuerburgring
    I have never heard of the Nordbergring. Sarcasm maybe? I guess it's sarcasm.

    I'm sorry, it's an old inside joke.

    It's Nürburgring.
