Ferrari to reveal world`s fastest car

Ferrari has revealed in Barcelona, at the Catalunya Circuit during the Formula One Spanish grand prix, the Formula Rossa roller coaster.

Powered bye 18,000-horsepower, the Technique Rossa is the world's fastest roller coaster, accelerating from 0-62mph in 2.0sec, faster than any Ferrari low road car, and climbing to a maximum height of 52 meters (171 feet).

The rollercoaster is 1.3 miles long and features a series of "sharp turns and sudden drops" which generate 1.7 Gs.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will open on October 28, 2010, featuring the GT roller coaster, the G-force experience (which takes "passengers on an adrenaline-pumping ride up over 62 m, through the roof and back down again"), and the Flume ride (which explores "the heart of a Ferrari 599 engine").

According to Claus Frimand, General Manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the roller coaster's goal is "to bring the sensation (to people) of what a Formula One driver is experiencing."
