What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile

What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile? The reason I wonder, is that I have a caomparaison in motorcyclist with around 30 sport bikes 1/4 miles times and the GSX-R 1000K5 seem to be the fastest production bike, closly followed by the busa and ZX-10R.

So is there any car that you can buy from the factory, like a SLR, enzo, saleen, that is faster on the 1/4 mile?

The time I have here 9.79@148.4mph

If there isn't any car that can beat that it mean we have the fastest production vehicule on the planet for 1/4 mile, sweet

Koenigsegg CCR - 1/4 Mile ET: 9.120

Re: What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile

Would those really be considered a production car?
Its not likely you can go to your local dealership and pick one up.
Kind of crazy to think with the right rider out of the box these things can do sub 10 quarter miles!!!

I dunno. You can go an buy one, they are manufactured for public sale, production enough for me.

As an example you can go and purchase a GSX-R 1000, but you can't go and buy a prototype YZR-M1 or RC211-V. You can lease it for a year for about a million dollars but cant buy it.

Re: What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile

A guy in my neighborhood has one.

It's a bitch to get in and out of.
But, it's got the baddest car engine platform in history.
The Chevy LSx.

Check Lingenfelter's TT corvettes.
Some turn key packages are running 8's in the 1/4 in full street trim.

Re: What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile

I think the point is off the showroom, not off the showroom and drop twin turbos into it.

Hi,

Probably the Bugatti Veyron. It has a VW W16 motor with turbos I believe. 1001hp around 250mph+ top speed. 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. worth about 810,000 pounds.

There's also a company building a road/race car based on a 2.4 V8 F1 engine. 0-60 2.5 seconds, can't remember the name though.

I looked up the Veyron, it runs the 1/4 mile in the high 9's to 10's depending on who you ask.

Re: What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile

the ccr's 1/4 mile time was done with slicks, so i don't think that counts. the bugatti is the fastest production car currently, with a 1/4 mile time of 9.8 on factory tires and a top speed of 252mph.

either way, our $10k bikes are just as fast in the 1/4 mile as $1,000,000 cars. top speed and around turns? maybe not.

Re: What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile

The guy down the street running a stock 1980s Civic with an open exhaust and gold spoke rims. He says it is an open exhaust to me it looks like the stock system rusted off.

If street logic holds true stating the louder the faster this car must be the fastest.

D&D has nothing on this guy.

Re: What is the fastest production vehicule at the 1/4 mile

Fastest? or fastest street legal US production car?

I dont think the CCR or whatever isn't street legal in the US, I dont think.

The buggati isn't either, but i'm not sure about that. Its a beast, thats for sure.
the LPE TT isn't a production car, its a tuner car. LPE isn't an OEM, much like Steeda, so they have MUCH MUCH MUCH less regulation as far as safety and emissions go.

The S7 was running high 10s, NA. They are now running MUCH MUCH suspension geometry, tires (wider and stickier), better aero and ohh yeah- they bolted on 2 turbos onto a 575hp 7 liter engine and are pushing 750+ now. The NA first gear was taller too, making it more difficult to launch.
I'm currious to see if this thing will bust 9s. And saleen is an OEM.
