Swedish Sports Car Reaches Whopping 250 MPH!
 
The need for speed! I miss the autobahn and even Nurburgring when able for a drive. :D

This is what zooming by at 250 MPH looks like.

That is a beautiful car and very fast.

If i could afford and wrangle one, i wouldn't enjoy driving without a real clutch. I don't want paddles in anything but a canoe. :(
Specially developed 7-speed dual clutch, 1 input shaft transmission with paddle-shift.

Listen to the pipes on that monster when he opens it up. Reminds me of the golden days of Detroit gas guzzler muscle. That beast would have been made in 'Merica 10 years ago had it not been for the UAW and the EPA standing on the auto industries' neck.

I love how they have a line of ambulances at the entrance. Just waiting...

Much better looking than the Bugatti.

But did you look in the video description... 250mph on standard Michelin Pilots. I'm sure they are the highest speed rated available, but I don't think I'd feel comfortable at 150 on anything I could buy at TireRack.com

Sounds like 250 is the max this thing will do. You can hear it bouncing off the limiter as it passes.
.... In other related news. Just so people know, the bugatti is not the fastest production car in the world, and it only was for about a month. An american car holds that title.
