Lest we forget the Brits are as batshit mad as the rest of humanity, word is British sports-car builder Bristol Cars plans to spike its Dodge Viper-powered Fighter with twin turbos. That means the latest incarnation of the V10-powered coupe will produce 1,012 hp and 1,032 lbs-ft of torque, giving it a theoretical top speed of 270 mph — though the company says it's electronically limited to 224 mph to prevent it from experiencing a catastrophic teardown at speed. At least someone over there has a conscience.
