    I was reading popular science magazine at work today and there is a sports car in it with ....

    1. 2000 Horse power :o
    2. Gel filled tires to prevent disintegration at ultra high speeds
    3. Active suspension that adjusts itself to suit the road ahead
    4. Sensors that detect road debris and obstacles on the road ahead and show you on a HUD built into the dash ( which is insane )
    5. Morphing technology allows the car to stretch at top speeds and shorten for turns :confused:
    6. Tops out at roughly 350 mph ... holay fawk.

    The issue is onlione on their webpage with a small picture of the car, its the september issue. My fave quote is " we know that almost no driver will be able to handle speeds in excess of 300 mph so we included electronic aids to boost reaction time and help remove some of the stress of driving from the operator."

    with 2000 hp , I am thinking that it would not take very long for the 350 mph mark

    I don't think my stomach could handle a 350 mph commute to work. What is the need for a car that can travel that fast, other than to freak people out on the Autobahn?

    Most of the Autobahn is restricted lol keep up with the times

    EDIT: Even on the unrestricted portions the police would still pull you over for going 300mph (or even over 250mph) because you are STUPID ASSHOLE!

    And we all know the enormous difference between theory and reality. I would say it sounds possible on paper but in reality it would never work out although some theories behind the car may be put into future production supercars?

    With 2000 hp I would be more interested in how they would distribute this power not to mention making a lightweight engine capable of such high horsepower, We don't even have technology advanced enough yet. At least not for a application such as a car. Interesting thought though.
