I thought the Veyron beats the F1 off the blocks because of its AWD? Or was Hammond not using launch control?
It was hammond that didn't do justice to the Veyron.

With 3.2 secs vs 2.45secs to 100kmph, its anybody's guess who should have lead the race from the word go...

Infact, the Veyron overtook the Mclaren at something like 270-280kmph, which doesn't make sense coz the Veyron is a good 4-5 secs quicker to 280.

They got a 1/4 mile time of 9.95secs for the Veyron during this test. The Mclaren F1 was tested at 11.145secs a few years ago.

Wake up from the dead.

A friend had visited the Bugatti museum or something in Europe. He clicked the pic of this particular Bugatti which never went into production? Not sure how true is that. Attaching pics of the same for the snrs to review and comment.

The car was made in 1998.
