    Captain Falcoln can go faster than Blurr in his F-Zero machine, The Blue Falcon.

    What's sad is numbers 2, 3, and 4 together would need another 102 MPH just to tie him.

    If they had looked through every fictional car ever printed or made into a movie/TV show then I'm sure none of the vehicles listed would have made it. I'm just glad Transformers is popular enough to make a list like this with some very high profile TV/movie vehicles.

    I always wish they would have made Blurr faster. I mean in G1 Hot Rod freaking beat him in a race and in Animated Bumblebee comes close. I want to see fast like DC comics Flash on him.

    ThrustSSC currently holds the landspeed record @ 763.035 mph. North American Eagle is going to try to hit 800 mph. So real-world vehicles are just as fast...

    Is it just me or is Blurr a REALLY REALLY obscure character for any place on a Forbes.com list?

    Also the Mach 6 can go like 400+ now and can also break the reality barrier :p

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    I mean, I'm cool with the fact that our generation now writes all this stuff, so we are the target market... but FORBES with a lame Maxim-style list of cartoon character stuff, and a super-obscure Transformers reference???

    I love TFs and all, but the rest of the world has to get a life! :)

    I was honestly thinking this. Like Half the transformers can go absurdly fast as cars... who cares. I am not quite sure how Blurr got to the list but it is good to be there.

    800 MPH eeeeeeeeeeh, if the techspec says so.

    Congrats to Blurr! I heard his acceptance speech, it lasted 5 seconds, nobody understood what the hell he was saying.

    You know, the sad thing is, they never really showed him driving that fast on the cartoon. He talked at a ridiculous speed. But in car mode, he pretty much motored around at the average animation speed of the time.

    I don't know where they got there info from , But i'm pretty sure that KITT was able to go faster then 203mph .... especially in the last couple seasons.

    It seems to me the MIB Crown Vic ("Ford POS") was even faster than the Mach 5. I wonder why it only got an honerable mention?
