    Hmmm so that is @260 mph correct? took 2000 hp to achieve the top speed.

    Didn't the Bugatti Veyron Gran Sport do @264 mph with approximately half the amount of horsepower?

    From the video title, I'm guessing this is a standing mile record, not top speed :p

    Yep, standing mile. Veyron started it's top speed run from around 200KPH and it took at least 2km to reach it...
