My all-time favorite car just broke the 300 mph barrier, from a standing start....in just ONE mile. It's called the Texas mile and dudes and
dudettes bring their stuff for nothing more than the challenge.
This is a stock bodied car that is completely streetable, except it has a 2000 plus hp motor. The traction control is the key component as even the
most skilled driver would just blow the tires off. Full control doesnt take place until after 200 something mph as the car has enough power to spin
out from accleration.
It's a shame that cars like the McLaren f1 are so rare no one can apply this sort of experimental power to them and see their true potential. Although
the race version could easily reach 300, which was basically street legal as well.
The last true supercars were built in the late 90s and early 2000s. The supercars of today's world are just super fast computers. And speed isn't
everything, a few Lingenfelter engineers subtly modified a street legal Corvette in the 80's that went 250mph, in the rain.
