    As someone who's scientifically-inclined, I can't deny that I appreciate what they've done here

    Also, I think it looks a bit better than its predecessor :yep:

    I can't get my head around 260mph.
    I've done 160mph and that felt incredibly scary. I can't comprehend what it'd be like going another 100mph faster.

    From an engineering point of view I can respect the capabilities, but I haven't got the tallent to pilot this one.

    Typical takeoff air speeds for jetliners are in the 130–155 knot range (150–180 mph, 240–285 km/h). Light aircraft, such as a Cessna 150, take off at around 55 knots (63 mph, 100 km/h). :eek:

    Love the engineering and design flair.

    Hate the unashamed consumption of finite resources to pamper the massive ego's of the exploitation classes.

    Imagine the amount of downforce pushing the car into ground, eh!

    60,000 litres of air through the intakes a minute. This thing is mental!

    It's an impressive beast, but I'm a bit sceptical of some of those numbers, and the guy who wrote that article doesn't really understand some of the stuff he's talking about!

    Impressive but I doubt I'd want to own one even if I had the means to do so.

    In order to get to the peak of these fine machines you will either need to own your own private runway, boulevard or racetrack. I suppose it does help to own a tyre shop and petrol station nearby as well
