Nicknamed “Vader”, Team Cal Simraceway ‘s 2011-12 Formula SAE car was UC Berkeley’s entry into the FSAE West 2011 competition, established to put students’ engineering skills to the test.

Sponsored by Simraceway and powered by the same 600cc Suzuki GSX-R600 engine as its predecessor, the 85-bhp racer represented the world-famous institution with distinction in the prestigious event, held at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California in June 2011.

The MP4-12C goes with a smaller, higher revving, twin-turbo 3.8L V8 that makes 592hp and 443tq. Around the world, automakers are setting goals to lower emissions and improve fuel mileage. McLaren claims their new V8 has a higher HP to CO2 emission ration than any internal combustion engine in the world. It’s also claimed to manage MPG figures in the mid to high 20’s, which puts it at nearly double what the F1 got.

An upgrade to the original Veyron’s 8-liter, quad-turbo W16 engine, including the addition of enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers, has added a whopping 198 bhp to its output, resulting in a car that can reach a top speed of almost 268 mph—a feat that duly snatched the “fastest production road car” title back from the SSC Ultimate Aero TT.
