    The new roadster will break 300mph with the "special package" option. At that speed it might go into another dimension.

    It will be very interesting if it happens, but I just highly doubt it - mainly because of the gearing and aerodynamics needed. By then there may be an ICE vehicle that hits 300 even.

    Future versions of the Chiron may come close. I think its mid 200s top speed is limited due to the tires.

    It will have one of these so it will go back in the past a few seconds so you end up there faster :)
