World's Fastest Road Vehicle

A Swiss company has created the world's fastest ever road vehicle with a speed of 340mph. The Acabion GTBO is a bullet-shaped cross between a motorbike and a car. it looks like a jet fighter cockpit on wheels - with stabilisers - and has the power-to-weight ratio of a Formula One car. Take a look at the image.

Makers of the Acabion GTBO claim it could reach 300mph in 30 seconds - much quicker than the Bugatti Veyron which takes 55 seconds to reach its top speed of 250mph. An electric version with a top speed of around 300mph is also planned and its designer, former Porsche engineer Peter Maskus, sees it as the future of high-speed, low-emission transport.

This high-performance vehicle falls in a newly invented category of vehicle called a 'Road Streamliner'. Manufacturers expect the Acabion GTBO to be in production and on the road within three years with a price tag of £1.5million.
