London, February 28 : The world's fastest-ever road vehicle can pick up the speed of 300mph in just 30 seconds before hitting a maximum of 340mph.

Well, this vehicle is neither a car nor a motorcycle, but something in between.

Acabion, the creator of the Acabion GTBO concept car, describe it as a "road streamliner".

The manufacturer applies jet fighter and Formula One technology in the super-light two-seater dream machine, comprising a turbo-charged 1300cc engine.

Two stabilisers have been fitted at the back of the vehicle, similar to those used in toddlers' bikes, so as to keep it steady at low speeds.

Dr Peter Maskus, a former Porsche engineer who is developing the GTBO in Britain and Switzerland, says that he is "remixing the whole automotive recipe".

"The Acabion does not even want to be a car, nor a bike. It is a new class - a road streamliner," the Sun quoted him as saying.

Dr Maskus has plans to launch the GTBO in the UK and USA within three years.

He says that the vehicle may be priced at a whopping 1.5 million pounds.

So far, the fastest road car is America's SSC Ultimate Aero TT, which can run at a speed of 257mph.
