€ 1,127,210 = S$ 3,407,071.69
Any idea how much would the COE be?
I would rather save some of this money and get a Ferrari or Lamborghini instead.

It doesn't make sense to own this car in sg... Expensive road tax & insurance, 2 many traffic lights and high fuel costs... with this amount, can get a ferrari or lamborghini, still got leftovers to buy an apartment...

Looks like the record has been broken:

Shelby Supercars (SSC) has reported a world record 257mph run in speed testing of its 1183bhp, twin-turbo V8 Ultimate Aero TT. The first pass was recorded at 257.41mph (414.31kmh) and the second pass was recorded at 254.88mph (410.24kmh) in testing on a temporarily-closed two lane stretch of public highway in the company's home state of Washington for an average top speed of 256.15mph.
