World's Fastest Street-Legal Car: Maxximus G-Force
With 1,600 horsepower and 2,700 pounds, it’s no wonder that the Maxximus G-Force claims to be the world’s fastest street-legal car. Its title comes from the World Record Academy, although we’re not sure how their declaration was verified.
Another one of the G-Force’s big claims is its zero to 60 mph time of only 2.1 seconds. That’s 0.4 seconds quicker than your average Bugatti Veyron. It also boasts a 0 to 100 mph time of 4.54 seconds and a 0-100-0 time of only 8.86 seconds. So far, there has been no mention of the car’s official top speed. In order to take the true title of fastest production car, the G-Force will have to top the SSC Ultimate Aero’s top speed of 257 mph.
The G-Force was unveiled earlier this week by its designer Marlon Kirby and financier David McMahan. Development started with a British-made Ultima GTR 720. From there, most of the chassis, the drivetrain, and the gearbox were replaced. Power for the supercar comes from a twin-turbocharged 7.0-liter Chevrolet V-8. The current transmission is a three-speed shifted by paddle shifters and the car uses six-piston AP racing brakes with 14.2 inch rotors to bring it to a halt.
The price tag for this remarkable machine is three million dollars. It will be shown to the public at the Big Boy’s Toys Super Show in Abu Dhabi on April 30th.
