    How long do you reckon it takes a RUF CTR Yellowbird to go from a standstill to 200 miles per hour, and then stop?



    Price: £56,000 (60k miles)
    Engine: Flat-six, 3349cc, 462bhp @ 5000rpm, 479lb ft @ 3500rpm
    Gearbox: 6-speed manual
    Brakes: 330mm ventilated discs
    ABS: No
    Weight: 1100kg
    Power to Weight ratio: 420bhp/tonne

    For those of you who've read this month's Autocar, no cheating
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    This is closest so far, but still a way out.

    I can't really say too much for fear of giving away the answer, but here's a couple of things that might help...

    The terminal speed at the standing mile is 189mph
    It takes 450 metres to stop from 200mph

    As a slight aside, the 0-60 figure is 3.65 seconds

    You're overestimating its abilities
