    Andy Wallace was driving the car that went into the record books at 386km/h, but actually went 391.

    The thing about Guinness records is that they need to be independantly verifieyed/ measured.

    The CCR could do 400mph, but if they don't fill in the requisite forms and get the proper time/ speed recordings then it won't be official, and it won't be in the book.
    Thanks for all the fish

    Probably a typo.

    The more I look at this car, the more I dislike it

    A few days ago a standard CCR has officially driven a speed of 387.87 km/h on the Nardo speedtrack. But it must be possible to drive even faster because the Mclaren did the 386.70 km/h on a 9 km straight track. So Lorus Biocchi (Koeningsegg) thinks he might be able to get to 395 km/h on a straight track.

    It is very nice. I did not see it on the road, but nice all the same.

    Too bad I've never seen one, they look really nice. I like the way the doors open.
