How do you leave the Bugatti Veyron in the dust? Hire designer Marlon Kirby and financier David McMahan who recently unveiled their Maxximus G-Force – a car that they claim is the quickest car in the world with a 0 to 60 mph time of 2.1 seconds.
The two took an Ultima GTR 720, a British-made sports car already capable of a 0 to 60 mph time of 2.6 seconds, and dropped a 7.0L Chevrolet V8 with two Turbonetics turbochargers that allows for a total of 1,600-hp. Power is transferred to the wheels through a custom-made 3-speed transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. That allows for a 0 to 60 mph run in 2.1 seconds and a 0 to 100 mph run in 4.541 seconds. With the help of 6-piston AP Racing calipers and 14.2 inch rotors, the car comes to a complete stop in 8.861 seconds. It is said that that the 2,700 pound Maxximus G-Force can suck its tank dry in just 9 minutes.
Anyone interested in buying the Maxximus G-Force? McMahan says that he has had inquiries from buyers in the Middle East. The car is expected to cost about twice as much as the beloved Bugatti Veyron.
Of course this post would be pointless without a video, so make the leap to see the Maxximus G-Force in action.
