Thats awesome, looks a lot like the lotus exige but stretched. That thing is fast, and I mean getting there to the top speed. I've built some fast cars on simulators like forza and while they may have high top speeds they  take forever to get there. I wouldn't be surprised if this car could go faster by tweaking the gearing and or the aerodynamics somehow

It's a bunch of different cars put together, I believe a Lotus body, Corvette Engine LS7, Ford GT500 Transmission, etc... 

 

From Wiki: "As the run was in a single direction and only 11 cars have been produced to date, and is not a series production car, but registered as a modified Lotus Exige, it does not qualify as the worlds fastest production car in the Guiness Book of Records.[6]"

 

So it's not technically a production car but still awesome.

 

If you have some time and a love for cars, check out this video of the new McLaren P1. It's not 'Merican but pretty amazing.
