Dagger GT Now Claims 2700 hp, 315 mph

2700 dagger gt at Dagger GT Now Claims 2700 hp, 315 mph

Remember TranStar Dagger GT? Of course you do! The world’s most ambitious car maker has updated Dagger’s specs on its website, now promising a 2700 hp version capable of achieving 315 mph or 500 km/h.

We are not saying they are liars, but we haven’t seen the 2500 hp version they’d promised yet. Neither have we seen the first 2000 hp version. So we have a sneaking suspicion it is another wishlist!

We really do hope TranStar get around making the Dagger with the same spec they claim they can – a proper hyper car not a dragster – because then they would show all the big car makers, McLaren, Bugatti, Ferrari,… how pathetic they are struggling to make a 1000-hp car. We just wish we could believe them.

Check out the new Dagger’s specs below. The numbers are so staggering, it’s kinda funny!
