Default Fastest Accelerating Street Car in the World!

I have seen this car in action, what a machine!


The important bit...

On treaded, street legal tyres... a fully muffled exhaust, 95RON pump petrol...

It did the 1/4 mile in [email protected]

It's rumoured he does the shopping at the weekend in it

And it's got 508ci of Chevy V8 under the bonnet, pushing about 1600bhp on juice.

Only a matter of time before a street legal car in full street trim does a 7 second pass!!!!

Check out www.audiracing.co.uk - I took the photo of the car doing the burnout on the front page!

thats fast.. but are you sure he's getting 1600 bhp?
my guess would be about 1000 at the most..

wouldn't be the first time I was wrong, but that seems like alot..

Edit: I just noticed on the site it says he's making 1200 hp on a good day..

He said 1600 on the juice so it would be probably a 1000-1200 without it

"The new Audi has now gone 8.06 at 182.60mph over the 1/4mile and 143.3mph over the 1/8 ...as of 10 September 05 it is now the world fastest street car on pump gas and full treaded tyres."

Wow. I think I saw it on Top Gear once, or read about it in the magazine.

I am still amazed by the fact that it actually has a numberplate on it!!!

A rat motor in an Audi? That must have been a big shoehorn.

John Shepard races his 1991 Eagle Talon and has a full interior(even carpet), and it is still street legal. He just ran a 7.9.

I bet he would be set back for the fats and the noise pollution. That Chev would be loud, muffled or not. How does he get away with 1200hp without having anything sticking through the bonnet, though? Is it a carby fed engine?
