    ...we'll see if it lives up to the hype

    Even if it does, be interesting to see how long fuel, brakes and tyres last at 300mph - or drivers for that matter :)

    Now who, in their right mind, would want a vehicle capable of 300 MPH ?
    Twelve hundred HP ? Duh.......

    Lucky, were you born in the US? It is not too common for a European (hope that is a correct term) to be so fond of American muscle cars. Much less Mopars! I am a Mopar fool myself. Owned a few, currently have a 68 B-body that is slowly making progress.
    I agree, give me a Superbird or Daytona anyday!

    I feel the sudden need to go wash my hands, possibly brought on by having to agree with Lucky. American steel and Hemi power any day! Wish I could afford 'em......

    Nothing having to do with a Hemi is cheap, but they are bad ass motors, and always draw a crowd.

    It'll drain the gas tank in 12 minutes if you feel the need to.... as for brakes and tyres, no idea. I have heard figures of 15 minutes for the tyres if you really push it, but this sounds a bit ridiculous.

    It looks like the US dept of Energy don't really like the car either...

    I know what the Veyron will do to fuel, I meant the Mosler
