Leblanc Mirabeau - Super Light and Super Fast

Swiss supercar builder Wysstec has built one of the fastest and most remarkable cars, the Leblanc Mirabeau. The 2009 model year is the closest most will get to a race car for the street. Not only does it reach impressive speeds (241 mph), but it weighs just 1,790 lbs and is constructed of Kevlar and carbon fiber. The Mirabeau is named after a slow corner on the famous Monte Carlo Formula 1 circuit, but it's anything but slow.

The car is equipped with an engine from the Koenigsegg CCR, and until the production of the Bugatti Veyron, the Mirabeau was the fastest production road car in the world. The ending is a cast aluminum V8 with four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshafts and a displacement of 4.7-liter. The engine is able to achieve some 806-horsepower too. No matter that there are faster cars out today, the 2009 Mirabeau is one heck of a race car.
