How did you forget the AC 427 Corbra??
The new car was designed in cooperation with Ford in Detroit. A new chassis was built using 4″ main chassis tubes (up from 3″) and coil spring suspension all around. The new car also had wide fenders and a larger radiator opening. It was powered by the "side oiler" Ford 427 engine (7.0 L) rated at 425 bhp (317 kW), which provided a top speed of 164 mph (262 km/h) in the standard model and 485 bhp (362 kW) with a top speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) in the competition model. Cobra Mark III production began on 1 January 1965; two prototypes had been sent to the United States in October 1964.
 
The AC 427 (i.e. the Mark III) dimensions were: overall length of 14.583 feet (4.445 m), overall width of 5.583 ft (1.702 m), height (with its removable top in place) of 4.250 ft (1.295 m), turning circle of 34 ft (10.363 m), wheelbase of 8.00 feet (2.438 m), front track of 4.50 ft (1.372 m) and rear track of 4.417 ft (1.346 m). Its fuel tank held 18 imperial gallons and its empty weight was approximately 2,300 lb (1044 kg).
 
 2380/425=5.6
2380/485=4.9

Veyron Super Sports?

I like your list....but I am stuck in the European way of calculating all this. BHP/ton. I like that there's bigger numbers involved so it's less 9.345 vs. 9.123. As a rule of thumb, a car with a bhp/ton ratio greater than 200 is fast.
IMO if it's above 175 bhp/ton its pretty quick.
Above 200, fast.
Above 225, probably more speed than you need for the street realistically
Above 250, you have traction issues and speeding tickets
Above 300, silly.
Anything higher than that is warp speed.

Example:
My 170whp Focus: 144bhp/ton
2011 Mustang V6: 177 bhp/ton
2011 Mustang GT: 229 bhp/ton
2011 Shelby GT500: 288 bhp/ton
2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport: 592 nhp/ton

But serious...no trunk, no window, no radio.... eh. More of a track car

I would TOTAL the atom just getting it out of my drive way
I didn't know there were rules.

FWIW, I'd total half of the top 20 getting out of my driveway, but then again my driveway needs work.

Also, random observation, ever notice how Jeremy always test drives these cars at super high speeds with no helmet on? Must be nice to own your own track. I need a helmet just to race my old 91 Cutlass Ciera. Some say I need one just to drive it, but that's another story... I say all that just to say the wind in the face argument is moot, as you'd be driving that car with a helmet on at any significant speed, just like you would any of the other cars on this list.

2000 3.8L V6, 13.92@97.67mph all motor [SOLD]
