Dagger GT Now Achieves 2700 hp, 315 mph

You must have remembered the TranStar Dagger GT. The Dagger GT has radically treated by the world’s best car maker. They have updated the specs on their official website claiming that the 2700 hp version of Dagger is able to gain a top speed of 315 mph (500 km/h).

It is somehow hard to believe this report because up till now they had not kept their promise of introducing 2500 hp version nor even 2000 hp yet. We won’t believe until they show up the class.

We are so curious about this 2700 hp Dagger and really hope that the TranStar will reveal it with the disclosed specs to make it a proper hyper vehicle rather than a mere dragster. Only in this way they can show the top automakers like McLaren, Bugatti, Ferrari which are yet to make 1000 hp version that how talented and capable team they have under their shed.
