A car that's fast but also relatively plain is needed. Grey for maximum stealth. Probably something like an e46 that's been thoroughly gone through and refreshed, able to comfortably cruise at 120mph+.

Secondly, we need a buddy car travelling on roads parallel to ours, if not several buddy cars. These are all fitted with multiple sets of fake plates on a spindle or something that can flip through them to confuse police as to where the car is.

Thirdly, the cars need to have all non-essential lights and reflectors disabled, with a night vision system inside. This will let us escape in darkness.
Fourthly, fuel. The fewer fuel stops, the better. Fuel cells should be put in the trunk, the rear seat, where ever. They should also be equipped to have fuel blasted in as fast as possible to save time. Driver and Co driver wold switch out at fuel stops.

Fifth, a trusted crew. We need people to refuel, to help keep time, to distract police, anything.

Also, if it all goes to shit, we need disguises that we can quickly ditch to walk away without going to jail. Stop the car, get out, run into the woods, ditch the costumes and masks, a crew member pulls up and we get in his car, like nothing ever happened.

Not if you rent it, OP said nothing about buying.

>>14278441
I'd personally go for a Volvo V70 with an I6 engine. You could get enough fuel in the back that you'd probably only need to fill up twice. Also, if you're buying a sensibly priced sleeper, couldn't you use some of the money to arrange for pickups converted into on the road refueling units? Even if you slow to 60mph that's going to be a heck of a lot better than stopping completely.

Cruise control and a very trustworthy friend can let you change places. When I was young and dumb, I managed to get out of the driver seat and into the passenger seat on the highway at 70 with the cruise control on. Almost binned it getting back in.

You could do it easily with 1.5M.
I would use a Subaru Outback H6 and modify it to take the largest fuel cell possible. For refuel, I would have a pickup truck meet me at predetermined points to fill up the vehicle without stopping. Then, I would have a aircraft scouting ahead of me for police.

obviously you wouldn't get near the advertised 27 mpg with that weight and at high speeds but it's still the most economical among powerful big sedans

Audi RS6

>>14278259
B6 RS6. The one with the twinturbo Lamborghini V10. Completely grey, with the stock A6 bodykit, and a 2.0 TDI badge on the back. As if the officer could keep up and read it, HAH.

Tune it to 1000+hp. They hit 200mph stock with the limiter off, I believe half of the European ones already have an MTM or ABT tune on them that makes 700hp. 1000HP should make 200MPH cruising a possibility. If not, add power. The engine'll take 1500 if you redo the internals. Male sure it lasts. And it's quiet.

Double driving position. So two steering wheels, two pedal sets, everything. This means we won't even have to stop to switch.

Traffic control systems as in pic related. 100K cash for bribes. Make sure we bribe several officers in advance. Try and figure out someway to make sure we don't get stopped by police, it's the biggest concern here.

Air suspension, or a heavily revamped magnetic ride system. We'll need that, because otherwise, at the end of our gas tank we'd be sitting a few inches higher than we should, meaning A. more aero drag and B. iffy handling.

On-road refueling using pickups and quick-fuel systems (see:racecars) to make sure we don't slow down. Massive gas tanks, centrally located where the rear seats should be.

Remove all weight. Add rollcage. Try and keep it inconspicuous. Add huge brakes that don't fry after a 210-0MPH emergency stop. Add tires that don't blow after 30 hours of 200MPh driving.

Three occupants. One resting, one driving, one checking all the systems. All are rotating every two-three hours, depending on exact planning. All have had intensive training at several racing schools(probably Barber's) using our vehicle, and hours driving on ze Autobahn at 200MPH.

Wrap car in grey anti-radar stuff. Bribe guy working in Pentagon for said stuff.

Catheters. Probably diapers too. I dunno. Also, we need food. Ask a 120MPH pizza delivery or something.
Write a will, and prepare some letters for my loved ones. We're going balls-deep baby.

nope, current record holder used a 2004 CL55 AMG, supercharged V8 I believe.
also I disagree with diesel because they tend to be bad when it comes to acceleration

I've always wanted to do something like this with pic related and one of my best friends.

>remove rear seat to allow passenger seat to recline near flat
>12v cooler w/ food + drinks behind drivers seat
>WAZE for navigation
>supply of empties to piss in
>1 blanket/pillow each - some changes of clothes
>moderate set of tools / good cordless impact
>spare wheel/tire/compressor
>extra fluids, atf, oil, coolant, etc
>5 to 10 gal gravity feed gas caddy for emergency

The concept being straight iron-man marathon the entire trip, only stopping for fuel and swapping positions only during refueling.

First driver sleeps the night before departure - passenger works all day and stays up all night, then sleeps in the car until changeover.

Excessive amounts of speed is unnecessary as 75-90 is normally just keeping up with traffic.

RoadKill road trip as fuck.

>>14279446
fuel economy would be a killer at 200mph. you'd need to refuel every hour which isn't really practical on road.

the record is only an average of 98mph after all.
>>
>>14279524
Average of 100MPH = top speeds of 155MPH. To beat the current record, you'd have to cruise at 140-150, with peaks at 180, and capability of more. Besides, I'd have a massive fuel cell, combining both the stock 21 gallon unit, and several racing fuel cells, possibly going up to 100gallons. That's why I'd need the airride - once those are empty, the car might be hard to control.
>>
>>14279492
which S-class diesel are you talking about?
the most recent one available in the US was the 2013 S350 BlueTEC as far as I know, and that only had 240 horses
it's not just torque, you need high HP for cruising at very high speeds and good acceleration

How often are you going to be going from 0 to 60 in a highway run? Or even a top speed run?

The most you'll do is overtake slower people and cruise at a decently quick speed to minimize fuel stops.
>>
A riced out Tesla, and I'd spend the rest of the money building robots that swap the battery pack for me in seconds all across America.
>>
>>14279641
it's not just the 0-60 time you sperg, the point I'm trying to make is that low end torque is not enough when it comes to this sort of thing.
you also need to be able to deliver lots of torque at higher speeds/revs continuously, and that means high power.
everyone knows that diesel is not the way to go when it comes to driving at sustained high speeds (not highway cruising speeds), at least among production cars
