As close to a 240 as you can get without having a 240

That car is annoyingly incorrect.

What's wrong? Sorry to derail, just kinda interested.

BMW rims??

ElHefe910 05-20-2015 06:04 AM

Looks more like Mercedes AMG wheels to me

Tuff240 05-20-2015 06:42 AM

They look like throwing stars to me (BMW wheels).

Some sleeper inspiration. A one moderator of the Finnish Volvo Racing Club just did 302km/h (~188mph) with a quite stock looking 245 at airfield speed run day. It was the end speed of a standing mile run.

Here's an incar vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02hv...ature=youtu.be

Car just before the +300km/h run

The engine.

It had a +800hp engine with higher compression before but according to the owner those +800hp horses really start to cost and aren't as reliable in daily driving (he uses the car as a daily driver) so it's "only" ~700hp low compression engine now. :-P Seems to pick up speed nicely with that setup also. :cool:

The whole build thread: http://www.vrcf.fi/foorumi/index.php?topic=369.0 It's in finnish but you can open the picture links which are the blue links in the text. :-P

Damn! I couldn't imagine driving a 240 at almost 190mph!

Luckily I don't have to imagine. I'm the owner of that brick :)

Hotdoggin 05-23-2015 05:24 PM

Legit car. Does it get squirrelly up that high? Lose traction giving it the beans?

GTJordan 05-23-2015 06:51 PM

Damn that is impressive!

No, I meant, it's probably a rickity noisy nightmare! Probably sounds like it's about to blow apart at any second like space ship re-entering Earths atmosphere. But props to you!

Converted UK car?
