    It may make a higher top speed as it has very long gears, but It's claim of 0-100km in 2.9 seconds has been proven false. It would get burned off the lights by a normal M3 and it may even beat it to sixty.

    I did claim fastest, which literally means top end. I may get trumped at 0-60 by an M3, but after that its all game over, still the worlds fastest car.

    And the price tag is circa 1.5m

    I appreciate that ahuxham, i just suppose for me how fast a car can go does not impress me, the fact that you will never get the chance to do 200+mph and at any road legal speeds you will get out gunned by a chav in a hot hatch seems like a Colossal waste of wonga.

    The fact a veyron does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and 100 in about 7 is far more impressive than a Porsche that can go 256mph to the veyrons 255mph (or what ever the actual figures are) but what ever pops your cork

    haha that made me laugh,

    I thought M3's did 0-60 in about 4.5 which isnt exactly that quick and I cant see you getting gunned out by many chav's if you where driving that porsche to be honest unless the chav's are loaded down your way

    They seem to go for more powerful cars round here! I have seen a turbo VR6 golf, an insane Evo thats noisier than a helicopter, oh and some idiot that has one of those little mini bikes that seem to go over 300mph
