Victorian man builds supercar in his backyard

A Victorian man could be on the fast track to success after designing the world's fastest kit car in his own backyard.

From his shed in the Macedon Ranges, Jeff David and a team of enthusiasts have developed a super car so advanced it can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in a jaw-dropping 2.6 seconds.

It's like no other car I have driven

The speed and aerodynamics of 'The Quantum GP700' are so astonishing that, theoretically, it could actually drive upside down.

The first engineering prototype has had extensive track testing and will be launched today. Mr David said it had been a long road from dream idea to reality.

"I have always been very capable of solving problems and pushing technology boundaries in my careers," he said. "I guess it was inevitable that I would try designing a car." He said the car's maximum speed was around 320km/h.

"It's like no other car I have driven. It's impossible to describe."
