mad Fastest four door production car.

Dont fancy the chances of the GT HO reclaiming the title of worlds fastest four production car.
New Bentley comes out 411kw and 650Nm of torque out of a 6.0
litre twelve cylinder.
Have to crank up lots of boost out of turbos or a super charger to beat that.

Options: Beaded seat cover, mud flaps, side wind deflectors, plastic dog with wobbleing head, on parcel shelf. "New":Exhaust and windscreen washers with LED's.

Re: Fastest four door production car.

Yeah those Bentleys are pretty damn fast. Correct me if I'm wrong, but dont they weigh over 2 tonne and still pull good times?

2385kgs but 0-100kmh in 4.8secs.
Makes the BA a light weight.
Top speed at 318kmh.
At least they're not silly enough to speed limit it.

The Supercharged GT40 - which is basically the same engine as the Falcon 5.4 - puts out 373kW.

A recent Capa Supefcharged Conversion on an XR8 put out an estimated 400kW, with 310kW at the wheels. Similar estimates put torque at 620Nm.

Remember, Continental GT is a 2 door Coupe (Unless you're referring to the bigger Arnage)... and it also weighs in at 2800kg, versus the Falcon GT's 1800kg.


There's still room for possibilities.

I've seen a dyno sheet for a blown XR8ute with chip, intake and exhaust at just on 480kW.

Fastest 4 door ive sussed is the brabus version of the s class, at 471 KW and 1021 nm of torque.. and it IS a 4 door.

I must say though, if the bently "only" has 411kw and 2380 kgs, it still does quite a good job to get 4.8 0-100 kph and 318 kph...
I certainly wouldnt like to be t-boned by an angry bently at an intersection..

Re: Fastest four door production car.

It's all about the torque...

Maybe we'll be able to claim 'Fastest Four Door Production Car with Roof Racks and a Towbar' in the world?

Re: Fastest four door production car.

Ford US would never let a "lowly Aussie Falcon" beat their GT-40. How stupid would they look. If they were really serious about the GT-40, they'd have gone big block-ie Aluminium 427 similar to that of the Saleen S7.
