American company TranStar is planning to build the TranStar Dagger GT: a supercar fitted with a 2000-hp, twin-tubocharged 9.0-liter GM V8. They're setting out to break the 300 mph production car barrier with an insane hypercar.
The specs read like something a middle-schooler bitten by the car lust bug might come up with: twin-turbocharged GM 572 built by Nelson Racing Engines good for 2000 hp and 2000 ft-lbs of torque, a 3,000 lb curb weight and all carbon fiber construction, custom body plugs to bolt on for high-speed runs, and optional braking parachute.
Here are the hard-to-swallow performance targets: 1.5 second 0-to-60 mph run, 6.6 seconds to 204 mph, a 314 mph top speed. It'll consume four gallons of fuel per minute at top speed. It's a hypercar hoping to produce numbers beyond the reach of even the bonkers Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
