doubt its the worlds fastest. big daddy gutridge had a mustang that ran a 7.9 on street tires when it has to put in ballast to meet the weight break for his class. and there are guys that run faster now.

yea there are so many things street legal about that car...those tires aren't WAY street illegal or anything, having the nitrous bottle open isn't illegal, i doubt pretty much anything about the chassis is still legal, blah blah blah. there's no way that car is street legal. i beleive the fastest pump gas car is an ATI owned nova.

fifth gear and top gear are entertaining, but thats all you can take them for. They almost always have some fallacy in each episode.

my favorite's are from top gear when they claimed the z06 is so stiff it isn't street drivable....ok.

oh and when they dynoed 450rwhp on the gt500 they said it was overrated and doesn't really make 500hp.

450rwhp with rwd should actually be MORE than 500chp.

at my local track the pro-street record is 6.52, top speed record is 224mph. however pro street no longer is street legal cars here. years ago pro-street cars had to make a run then go for a 30 mile drive, get back to the track and run again within 1/2 hour. they got rid of that, then they allowed slicks, then allowed collector mufflers so there was no actual exhaust, now its not really street cars at all. back when they did the 30 mile drive the fastest cars were 6.80s.

That car is in Australia anyway ... I bet they have AWD platforms that are faster just not legally record holding.
