    Of course, the S7. I know the guy who designed the bodywork, and I've seen the race version up close, it's quite impressive. It would enable me to help use up the last remaining oil with great speed, so we can get on to electric trains. Also I might get laid (although to be honest, I'm not exactly sure how that would work).

    you can tell it is by looking at the tread on the left front corner and comparing it with the same spot on the right side.
    the one on the left is outside the car body, the one on the right is inside.

    BUSTED.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned the Bugatti Veyron. Unquestionably the best car ever built (or ever will be built).

    Please note:
    Top pic - drive sprocket front.
    Bottom pic - drive sprocket rear.
    Also:
    Top - 7 road wheels
    Bottom - 6 road wheels

    I think the top pic is a German Leopard, the bottom an American M-26 Pershing.

    I think the Veyron pretty much fits everyone's "personality":
    (wikipedia)

    Vehicle type: mid-engine, all-wheel-drive, 2-passenger, 2-door coupe
    Base Price: € 1,127,210 (£757 359, $1,440,800)
    Engine type: quad-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 64-valve W-16, aluminium block and heads, direct fuel injection
    Displacement: 7993 cm³ (488.8 in³)
    Performance Ratings as Tested :


    Zero to 60 mph (97 km/h): 2.5 s
    Zero to 100 mph (161 km/h): 6.0 s
    Zero to 150 mph (241 km/h): 11.0 s
    Zero to 200 mph (322 km/h): 22.0 s
    Standing Quarter-Mile / 402 Meter: 10.8 sec @ 140 mph s [4][5]
    Zero to 100 km/h: 2.5 s
    Zero to 200 km/h: 7.3 s
    Zero to 300 km/h: 16.7 s
    Zero to 400 km/h: 55 s [6][7]
    Top speed (Electronically Limited): 253 mph (407.5 km/h)
    Theoretical Top Speed: 257 mph (414 km/h) [8]


    Best Record: 257 mph (414 km/h)

    Fuel economy[9]:


    EPA city driving: 7 mpg U.S. (30 L/100 km)
    EPA highway driving: 10 mpg U.S. (16 L/100 km)

    ...At full throttle, it uses more than 125 L/100 km (2.1 mpg), which would empty its 100 L fuel tank in just 12.5 minutes. The car's everyday top speed is listed at 377 km/h (234 mph). When the car reaches 220 km/h (137 mph), hydraulics lower the car until it has a ground clearance of about 8.9 cm (3½ inches). At the same time, the wing and spoiler deploy. This is the "handling" mode, in which the wing helps provide 770 pounds (3425 newtons) of downforce, holding the car to the road.[2] The driver must, using a special key (the "Top Speed Key"), toggle the lock to the left of his seat in order to use the maximum speed of 407.5 km/h (253.2 mph). The key functions only when the vehicle is at a stop when a checklist then establishes whether the car—and its driver—are ready to enable 'top speed' mode. If all systems are go, the rear spoiler retracts, the front air diffusers close and the ground clearance, normally 12.4 cm (4.9 inches), drops to 6.6 cm (2.6 inches).

    The Veyron's brakes utilize unique cross-drilled and turbine-vented carbon rotors, which draw in cooling air to reduce fade. Each caliper has eight[2] titanium pistons. Bugatti claims maximum deceleration of 1.3 g on road tires. Prototypes have been subjected to repeated 1.0 g braking from 194 to 50 mph (312 to 80 km/h) without fade. With the car's fearsome acceleration from 50 to 194 mph (80 to 312 km/h), that test can be performed every 22 seconds. At speeds above 124 mph (200 km/h), the rear wing also acts as an airbrake, snapping to a 70-degree angle in 0.4 seconds once brakes are applied, providing 0.5 g (4.9 m/s²) of deceleration.[2] Bugatti claims the Veyron will brake from 252 mph (406 km/h) to a standstill in less than 10 seconds.[2] The braking is also so evenly applied that the car will not deviate from a straight path if the driver lets go of the steering wheel, even with the brakes fully applied starting from close to top speed. ..
