Hakan Lundgren's 1954 Texas Brown oval window is all steel on original floor pan,front end,and torsion bars.



It runs on a Pauter cased 2789cc with Scat flanged crank,Pauter rods, and Autronic injection.
Weight is 950KG = 2094 lbs

Best it is 9.12 / 157.6MPH or 253.570km/h at Goldtown,Sweden July 2007

He has a set match race with Ritchie Webb's 9 sec convertible from the U.K. at this years "Scandinavian Cal-Look Classic"!

I know Kris Lauffer picked up his families xmas tree in his 9 sec vert last year ;D

I wonder just how street driven this really is? ;)

Either way, their are allot of very fast Aircooled drag cars up in the colder Scandinavian countries - Norway,Sweden,Finland, and Denmark!

Re: Worlds Fastest Street car is in Sweden?

I wonder too if it's just a Pro Mod set up car with plates on it?

Re: Worlds Fastest Street car is in Sweden?

Well here seems a good place to start,Haken has now gone 9.0 :eek: and this is still a pan SPRINGPLATE car
it is fully street legal in his country[Sweden] and has to weigh over 2000lbs to compete in the class he does and run dot tyres,no slicks and in 8 days time we are set for some fun heads up racing with a twist,no sissy sticks,we have both run 9.78 best without them so it should be a good fun even race,at the last count we will have 12,yes 12 :eek: 9sec rear engine aircooled volkswagens in attendance,when was the last time that happened?

cheers richie,uk

That was a split owned by Rudy Olivenca from WPK in france,Hakans is an oval :)

We are trying to always push each other further,this weekend should be good for that,its not often we all manage to be in the same place at the same time :) I have to go across 8 different countries to get there and on 2 ferrys,it will take over 2 days[leave wednesday afternoon,arrive friday night] and gas is $11 a gallon right now :eek: :eek:

But the track is potentially the best in europe[if it doesnt rain]

cheers richie,uk

Richie's just left to go to SCC and will arrive late on Friday, the event is that good! I'm going to fly out there, I think it's going to be a good weekend for us Europeans, there's going to be a quick field out.

Don't think that if I won some 200 million $$$ lottery I wouldn't put one together at least one time and pay to get the best cars from around the world at one spot maybe Indy!

Can Ritchie send us updates from SCC!

Now he's over seas, or at least will be in an hour or so I'm not sure he'll even have his phone on! I will see what I can do, the track is in a pine forest so no wireless but it may be possible at the local hotel on the Saturday evening (our time).
