wow, looks pretty stable at those speeds. I've never been much above 150mph or so. So about 30-31 sec 0-200mph? pretty exclusive group of cars that can do that.

Hennessey Venom 1000TT Viper: 1,100 20.3 3488
Bugatti Veyron 16.4: 1,001 24.2 4770
Lingenfelter C6 Corvette: 880 26.5 4894
RUF Rt 12: 650 35.5 7385
Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren: 617 47.2 (199.5 mph) 10560

It looks like 6th gear pulls just as hard as other gears. Absolutely awesome..

I love the "shimmy" in the one vid, as he had to let it grab a little.

Yeah about 200, in the second vid, around 1.22 sec just before the finish you can hear the sunroof starting to leak in a rush of air.
It was a good learning experience. On that day the car was slower with 200 more hp and taller gears.
