Bristol Fighter

With a pair of turbochargers force-feeding its already potent Dodge Viper-sourced 8.0 liter V10, the gull-winged Bristol Fighter SCR ups the (metric) horsepower ante to 1012; or 11 more than the previous king, the Bugatti Veyron.

Bristol Cars also claims that the Fighter SCR is capable of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 435 km/h (270 mph), but is electronically limited to a mere 362 km/h (225 mph). Hmm. If true, that's Veyron-level performance (on paper at least).

We hope someone's able to arrange a side-by-side test of these two supercars so that we can see if the Bristol really can walk the walk and pose a serious challenge to the sublime, supreme Veyron.
