INTRODUCING THE WORLD'S FASTEST ROAD VEHICLE AT 340 MPH

Article: Meet the world's fastest ever road vehicle built to reach an astonishing top speed of 340mph and get 90MPG! 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. The two-wheeled GTBO comes with two extra stabilizers at the rear to keep it steady at low speeds - similar to those fitted to a child's first bike. However, rather than pedal power, the two-seater has a 1300cc turbo-charged engine which produces a staggering 800bhp. The GTBO's designer, former Porsche engineer Peter Maskus, described the unusual vehicle as a "road streamliner". It weighs just 700lbs - half the weight of the original Mini. Although it looks a bit like a motorcycle, Dr Maskus claims it is a new type of vehicle altogether and is the future of high-speed, low-emission transport. An electric version with a top speed of around 300mph is also planned. Dr Maskus, who runs Acabion, said: "The Acabion GTBO minimizes weight and maximizes power and aerodynamic efficiency. The effects are just out of this world. "The GTBO is the trendsetter towards a new generation of crafts in two categories, both hyper efficient. "One category is pure electric for city traffic and distances up to 300 miles. "The other category is petrol driven with 10 times the punch and a range of up to 1000 miles per fuel-stop. "They both Boost the jet-like GTBO to jet-fighter punch and to new dimensions of both efficiency and speed." Dr Maskus said he believed the GTBO "integrates the best you can get from cars and bikes", combined with a jet cockpit. The vehicle can reach such high speeds thanks to its arrow shape which reduces lifting or grip loss. Dr Maskus added: "Building cars based on carriages was a logical thing to do back in 1886. It is the most silly thing to do in the 21st century." Asked whether he believed his vehicle was better than the much-lauded Bugatti Veyron, Dr Maskus said: "The Veyron is a superb car. "But that is a bit of its problem - it's still a car. "The Acabion does not even want to be a car, nor a bike. It is a new class: a road streamliner. "Our grandchildren will probably laugh at how slow and how inefficient cars have been." Dr Maskus, who is German and has also worked for Mercedes, said the GTBO would be in production and on the road within three years. But those wanting to buy the vehicle developed in Switzerland and the UK will have to pay a staggering £1.5million for the privilege. The fastest, mass-produced road car is currently the American-built SSC Ultimate Aero TT which managed 257mph in tests verified by the Guinness World Records in October last year. ________________________________________ FROM NEWBIEJAB: ________________________________________ So, do you think the Acabion is capable of 340mph? If not what top speed do you think? For example, the Veyron has the 1000hp at 4300lbs. - drag coefficient of .41. It has a high speed mode that basically retunes the suspension (lowers front and rear) and rear wing that reduces the drag to .36 to achieve -I think it was the last 60mph or so to what 253mph? It takes 500 of those horses just to overcome the wind resistance at the top end to allow it to continue to accelerate. Wind resistance is the biggest problem at high speeds over 200mph, this is why it usually takes high HP. Significantly reduced drag = greater top speed with less HP required. The drag coefficient of the Acabion is .14 which is less than half the Veyron at 253mph. In addition the Acabion only lacks 25% of the Veyron's horse power, and it's 83.5% lighter or 1/6 of the weight at only 700lbs. We are talking about an additional 87mph from 253 - 340. The Veyron experiences a 60mph or so gain dropping the drag coefficient by .05 - the Acabion drops the .36 drag by .22 down to .14. The real problem at Acabion is that they released to much information on this before they were willing to give the public a good show. Now they're under pressure to deliver. I know at first glance this thing could seem like some real BS but if your interested in speed you should give this a serious look before you dismiss it. They spend 2 years building just one of these, it's based on the Suzuki Hayabusa.

HP Velotechnik Scorpion E-Trike mit Tretkurbelantrieb - Moni macht Probefahrt
Seit Januar 2011 hab ich da schon 10000 km draufgefahren. Das Fahrzeug ist führerschein- und versicherungsfrei. Es ist ein Lithium-Akku mit 20Ah eingebaut. Einmal aufladen dauert ca. 4 std. Meine höchste Reichweite ohne mittreten war 110 km. Ich habs aber auch schon mal geschafft, auf Waldwegen mit vielen Steigungen, den Akku nach 60 km leer zu machen. Wenn man as Hinterrad aufbockt und die Drossel raus macht treibt der Motor bis 70 km/h an. Auf gerader Strecke schafft er 35 - 45 km/h. Aktuell hab ichs auf 25 km/h gedrosselt, damit ichs ohne Nummernschild fahren darf. Motor hat ca. 250.- Euro gekostet. Das Steuergerät 70.- Euro. Aufgenommen hab ich mit Canon EOS 500D DSLR Kamera. Letztes Jahr hab ich auch schon mal ein Video aufgenommen. Hier ist der Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HwmQj0TB3U . Und hier ist nochmal ein Video auf dem man den Motor besser sehen kann: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3c5lDZnoaE . Viel Spass beim anschaun ;)

This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less than 7%. Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms. EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered car.

2011 Imperial Speeder HoverBike Concept
- - - I DID NOT CREATE THIS HOVERBIKE. Also, please try not to get involved in the huge Creationist/Evolutionist row going on in the comment section. - - - Traffic jams could soon become a thing of the past thanks to an amateur inventor who has built the world's first flying motorcycle in his garage. Australian Christopher Malloy ploughed his entire life-savings into the project which took him two and a half years to complete. His futuristic creation - dubbed the Hoverbike - can reach an altitude of 10,000ft and speeds of over 100mph. Fans of the design have already compared Mr Malloy's work to the 'speeder bikes' from the Star Wars sequel Return Of The Jedi or the hovering car from Back To The Future. The 32-year-old former helicopter pilot built the incredible machine in his Sydney garage using a custom-built carbon-fiber airframe and a BMW engine. The futuristic prototype has the potential to travel up to 92 miles or for about 45 minutes on one tank of fuel and is expected to come with a hefty price tag of more than £45,000. So far the bike, which weighs 270kgs, has only been tested while tethered to the ground to prevent it flying too high. But plans to test it's capabilities without any restrictions are set to go-ahead soon. Mr Malloy explained: 'I am still ground testing at the moment only because I'm not 100 per cent sure what will happen so the straps are there to cover the unknown. I haven't had the pleasure of flying round the countryside yet. 'It is quite stable and doesn't want to tip over but if something unplanned happened during testing I wouldn't want to break the prototype. 'The Hoverbike was built with safety in mind so at least three components have to fail before you might have a serious airborne failure. 'There are also two explosive parachutes attached to the airframe and of course the rider could choose to wear their own parachute too. Mr Malloy is unwilling to reveal exactly how much he has spent on the project, but claims it is costing him roughly £140 a week. He said the basic principle was similar to that of a Chinook helicopter and a normal motorbike. He added: 'To lift off into a hover you just need to increase the thrust via a throttle grip with the right hand - exactly the same as the throttle on a motorbike. 'Flying forward involves a combination of an increase in thrust and the deflection of air from the front control vanes by twisting the left handle grip. You twist forward to accelerate and backwards to reverse. 'To make the bike turn left and right, all one needs to do is push the handle bars down on the side you wish to turn just like a bicycle. 'You could lean in the appropriate direction as you would on a motorbike but this isn't proving to be very sensitive. 'Having previous experience in a helicopter or plane would be a great help. That said, this is a new way to fly and one would need to learn to ride the hoverbike in much the same manner as a helicopter or riding a motorcycle. 'If you live in the USA or your country has similar civil aviation regulations, then the hoverbike will be classed as a 'ultralite' which means you do not need a pilot's license to fly it.'

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.
