I like the look in general. I almost hope they make this one. But I'll never seriously think about buying a brand new car that gets worse fuel mileage than my 15 yr old pickup truck. They'll really have to get a grip on that HEMI to peak interest. I know they can too, so we'll see.

If you're talking about acceleration - Top Fuel Dragster
If you're talking about overall top speed - it's probably jet powered and goes several hundred MPH on the salt flats

Fastest production car any year? Hell if I know...everyone's got a different opinion.
Fastest production car this year? Ask 5 different people, get 5 different answers.

Depends also, what country you're talking about. Different limitations exist all over the place. In America, it's probably the Ford GT currently. In Europe, it's likely a Porsche, etc. I saw a RUF Porsche run 212mph on tv a few days ago on the autobahn. And that included a cameraman, his equipment and a reporter along with the company's test driver. Then again, RUF isn't production at all.

I drive a Dodge Magnum RT now. If my 280 lb arse fits in it I'm owning one. If it don't, well I guess it's gonna be a SRT8 Magnum for me. I am addicted to the Magnum and the smaller interior will take some getting used to, but its sexy as hell!
