    Allegations of bullshit aside, doesn't a production car record have to belong to, you know, an actual production car? Might as well have the Thrust SSC team say "yeah we can produce one of these if you want" and bingo, new production car record.
    Name me, if you can, a better feeling than the one you get when you're half a bottle of Chivas in the bag with a gram of coke up your nose and a teenage lovely pulling off her tube top in the next seat over while you're going a hundred miles an hour down a suburban side street.

      Some bloke analysed the frequency of the Audio to calculate the rev drops between gears to infer ratios. The ratios came out as the stock published figures that make the speed they proportedly reached in 6th impossible.

      And they had a chopper along side them at aledgedly 200mph in the 360 degree video.Top speed of the chipper is 180mph without a gimbal camera rig on it.

      surely someone at ssc would have noticed that was impossible.

      I'm firmly in the bullshit a mile high camp. And they'll be shitting bricks as now they have to do a real run.

        I think you guys are overreacting. This was clearly 'US MPH'. So yeah, it's legit. You always add ~30%.

          Yea and them changing the stated ratios is going to be hard to walk back from...
          If in doubt, flat out!

              They also claim they used bog standard Michelin Pilot Sports.... that alone is a massive BS alarm to me considering all the guff that Bugatti talks about with the special Veyron/Chiron/whatever tyres.

                      Hasn't explained shit. Trying to handwave their bullshit story. No rational explanation because there isn't one.

                      If the driver was shaking with head in hands after the run and the car is only at 250-270mph then Goold luck finding someone to actually do 330 in it.

                        i think NRE will be doing alot of development work between now and the next run to find a fuckload of horsepower if they want to replicate the result.

                          How fucking stupid are they thinking that the internetz wouldn't take their vid as gospel and quite rightly pull it apart.
                          The AV production team had one job, now they're saying 'derp we mixed up the footage derp'
                          Fuck off. They've been caught out.

                              How to speak for 3min37sec and say nothing. Low-rent Christian von Koenigsegg looking fucker.

                              FWIW, I hope they have another go and back up the speed, and do it safely. I don't think they will though.

Stupid tart on the news last night talking to the weather guy "wow you look totally drenched there whateverthefuckhisnamewas." No shit you vapid bitch he is standing in a fucking cyclone.
