Zero to 300mph in 30 seconds. On two wheels. Answered

Meet the world's fastest ever road vehicle built to reach an astonishing top speed of 340mph.

The Acabion GTBO uses jet fighter technology and aerodynamics to reach its extraordinary speed propelled by a state-of-the-art turbo-charged engine.

Its designers revealed it could reach 300mph in a blistering 30 seconds - substantially quicker than the rival Bugatti Veyron which takes 55 seconds to reach its top speed of 250mph.

Good grief, that would rattle your teeth!

The article implies that an electric version is in the pipeline as well.

Daily Mail story

750 hp and 700 lbs vehicle weight result in more than 2100 hp per ton. They boost the jet-like GTBO to jet-fighter punch and to new dimensions of both efficiency and speed.

V-max 340 mph at half throttle, governor limited.
0 to 300 mph in less than 30 sec.

Economic theories tell us, that you can not maximize effect and minimize effort at the same time. The Acabion GTBO proves the opposite. It minimizes weight and maximizes power and aerodynamic efficiency. The effects are just out of this world.

100 mph at 1.7% throttle and 100 miles per gallon.
150 mph at 4.3% throttle and 62 miles per gallon.
250 mph at 17% throttle and 25 miles per gallon.

Oh! That's the cutest fighter-jet-car I've ever seen. :D *fights ovaries* I mean, uh, those speeds sure are impressive. Excuse me while I go work on my car and drink a beer.

It's called a sense of humour - a subtle comment on gender stereotyping, which loses a lot of it's humour when you have to explain it.

The stereotypes in question are girls don't like fast cars and it's their hormones, poor things.

*shiver* at those speeds, there would have to be an awful lot more "steel" around me before I would trust it, especially on only 2 wheels. Now, if those wheels are less then 24 in tall, I would be even more frightened of it's stability. I have seen small wheeled scooters and they have absolutely no gyroscopic stability at all.
