I am in need of a ShamWOW, right now! That is a 150 mil to 1 mil challenge, but fun to imagine 'piloting' either of these missiles! Stoker Scott is plotting right now, how to fuel the Bugatti on 'anthracite dust' in a fuel cell!
I wonder how either of these does on the CAFE scale. Bugatti about 10 gallon per mile, Fighter about 150 gallons per mile......makes the TDI Jettas seem frugal.... :up: :shh: :shh: :surrender: :funny: :crutch:

just think of the cost to set that race up?? prolly a big pile of red tape tucked behind some govt building somewhere labled "practice run" :D

i would think the vyron while on the juice was more in the 2 mpg range. some lucky fellows there had fun tho! 8-)
