Barabus Sportscars Limited, not Brabus. Our Brit friends may have more info. Agree it's not very attractive.

Did you guys check out the shot of the engine? It looks like someone built it in their back yard. Doubtful I'd spend 500k on it even if it keeps up with the performance claims. Without all of the active and passive safety features and engineering of the VW group's Veyron, I'd have to say that quite a few of these things are gonna be going airborne.

I'd rather have the white supra that runs a 0-60 in 1.1 sec.

Sounds like 500k is pretty cheap for a plane! Not to mention many drivers that could afford a car like this need the electronics to save them from themselves.

I'm going to wait to jump into the supercar market when they build one that breaks the 1 second barrier. Enough of this 1.xx sec crap.


I agree, it's ugly. For that dough, i'd rather be seen in a CGT or SLR.

Just street a top fuel dragster. 0-60 mph in some 0.3, 0.4 seconds?

Looks stupid and plastic and cheap. Anybody can strap a Nelson Racing TT V8 into a tube chassis. This doesn't even come close to a Veyron, a Veyron is an engineering masterpiece. The car is so stable and smooth at speed. It's like a private jet not some vibrating POS that will fall apart at top speed. The Veyron is CLASS, this is just redneck and tacky. I admire the person who built it for the purpose of speed but to say it's a Veyron competitor is just delusional, the Veyron is more than just about speed. By the way 500k?!!! Are you kidding me? Why not just buy an Aventador and twin turbo it from UGR or a Gallardo or even an AMS GT-R. 500k is really rare exotic territory. You could but 2 McLaren SLRs in the US and put a Renntech 750+hp kit on them for that much. Sorry but the builder of this car is DELUSIONAL!!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Lambo...item35c3b65579 This is cheaper!!!! Barabus GFYS The price actually pissed me off, seriously what a douchebag. To have the nerve to price it 500k when cars like the Lambo exist.
