I said CONTINENTAL European.

The last time I checked a map, Britain was not part of the continent.

And even though British cars have run over 300, 400, 500, 600 and 700 mph, has anybody in Europe even seen 300 mph without having to leave Eurpope?

Last year at Bonneville, a team with a 1992 Pontiac Firebird powered by a turbocharged 370 cubic inch small block V-8 clocked 307 mph to set the first ever 300 mph record for a production car. (The body was so stock it still had operational electric windows.)

(The types of drag cars to run over 300 mph now include rocket dragsters, rocket Funny Cars, jet dragsters, Top Fuel dragsters, and fuel Funny Cars.)
