INTRODUCING THE WORLD'S FASTEST ROAD VEHICLE AT 340 MPH
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.
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.

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
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
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

Innespace Seabreacher (or Sea Breacher) is a two-seat submersible personal
watercraft, with a shape based on that of dolphin, and the ability to
imitate a dolphin's movement.
Designed by Rob Innes and Dan Piazza of the American company Innespace it
is the production model of the single-seat Innespace Dolphin. The concept
came from VASH (variable attitude submersible hydrofoil), which was
invented by Thomas "Doc" Rowe and Dennis "Dusty" Kaiser in 1987 with his
boat, Noland Won.
The two seat vessel is powered by an Atkins Rotary Marine engine coupled to
a Hurth V-drive transmission.

A midget submarine is any submarine under 150 tons,
typically operated by a crew of one or two but sometimes up to 6 or 8, with
little or no on-board living accommodation. Midget submarines normally work
with mother ships, from which they are launched and recovered, and which
provide living accommodation for the crew and other support staff.
Both military and civilian midget submarines have been built. Military
types work with surface ships and other submarines as mother ships.
Civilian and non-combatant military types are generally called
submersibles, and normally work with surface ships.
Most early submarines, such as the United States Navy's USS Holland (SS-1)
and the British Royal Navy's Holland 1, would now be considered midget
Most German midget submarines were developed late in World War II in an
attempt to stop the Allied invasion of Europe and used later to disrupt its
supply lines. As a result, the submarines mostly engaged in open water
attacks rather than harbour penetration.

A submersible is a small vehicle designed to operate underwater. The term
submersible is often used to differentiate from other underwater vehicles
known as submarines, in that a submarine is a fully autonomous craft,
capable of renewing its own power and breathing air, whereas a submersible
is usually supported by a surface vessel, platform, shore team or sometimes
a larger submarine. In common usage by the general public, however, the
word submarine may be used to describe a craft that is by the technical
definition actually a submersible. There are many types of submersibles,
including both manned and unmanned craft, otherwise known as remotely
operated vehicles or ROVs. Submersibles have many uses worldwide, such
as oceanography, underwater archaeology, ocean exploration, adventure,
equipment maintenance/recovery or underwater videography.
Restored 1940s Northrop Flying Wing
This is a video of the Planes of Fame Museum's (Chino, California) Northrop
N9MB Flying Wing during a recent (March 2009) engine run-up of its
remaining serviceable engine. This aircraft was originally built as part of
the November 1941 contract that Northrop was awarded for four, 1/3-scale
aircraft, designated N9M, that were to act as flying test beds for various
flight systems for the full-size XB-35 flying wing program and also to
familiarize Air Force pilots with flying wing operations
This aircraft experienced an in-flight engine fire in 2006 in its left, 300
hp., 8-cylinder Franklin 0-540-7 engine. The Flying Wing has since been
totally restored, but the restoration of the rare Franklin 0-540-7 engine
is another matter. There were only about 27 of these engines ever built
and it is believed that only three of them exist today. The needed parts
will need to be newly manufactured as necessary, but the museum has
committed to getting this aircraft back in the air. Common parts from a
12-cylinder Franklin engine are already being scavenged to help in the
restoration. The flying scenes in this video were taken just before the
engine fire. Progress towards flying staus is well on its way and this
aircraft will definitely once again fly, no doubt!
