World’s fastest legal car – 0 to 60 in one second
Here is something which will leave the Bugatti Veyron in the dust. Andy Frost from England has transformed his 1972 Voxel Vectra into the world’s fastest car and it is even street legal. So what goes under the hood of the Voxel Vectra which puts every car to shame. Powering the beast is a 9.3 litre V8 churning out 2200 HP which rockets the car from 0 to 60 in just 1 second. Compare this to the Veyron which has 11pp hp under the hood and does a 0 to 60 in under 3 seconds. The supercharged Vectra even beats the McLaren F1 by a huge margin as it covers a quarter mile in 7.8 seconds where as the F1 takes 11.1 seconds. It does hog on gas and gives you 5 miles to the gallon but for having the fastest street legal it is a very small price to pay.
Coming back to the Veyron which costs $ 1.2 million Andy built this baby for $ 188,000.
