The performance of most vehicles is measured with a 0–60mph time. An outdated standard for sure, but one that is, nonetheless, universal. To apply such an earthly measure to the Acabion GTBO is to fail to understand the apocalyptic nature of its performance. Most bikes do 0–60 in about three seconds. The Acabion GTBO does 0–300mph in 30 seconds. Its top speed is limited to 340mph, and it can maintain that speed on half throttle.
It’s not just the performance figures that are shocking. Unbelievably,
it’s frugal too. At 100mph, it can do 100mpg. At 250, it manages 25.
That’s better than most cars manage at 55mph.
The GTBO achieves such incredible performance through low aerodynamic
drag, low weight, low rolling resistance and a 750bhp, turbocharged
This is the part where reality interferes. The company is ready to
begin production of the fourth generation machine seen here this month.
But if you want one, not only will you have to cough up €1.83 million,
but also you’ll have to wait three years. That’s how long it takes to put a
