The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has 1,200bhp, and you might think that's a lot. But you'd be wrong. It isn't.

What we have here is a very loud, very orange Saleen S7. It's been modified by a Russian firm called Total Race to produce a scarcely believable 2,200hp at the wheels, as evidenced by this YouTube video.

Details are scarce, and its modifications indeterminate, but Total Race's Facebook page claims the Saleen has a 10.2-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 and all-wheel drive.

Standard twin-turbocharged S7s were rear-wheel drive only, and made do with a measly 750bhp from their 7-litre V8s. Even so, they could do 0-96kph in 2.8 seconds and reach a claimed top speed of 400kph.

With three times the power, and likely a little less weight, Total Race's S7 is probably fast enough to punch a hole through time.

So, TG.commers, who wants to see the Saleen meet Stig?
