Actually the Veyron is referred to as the elise´s big brother.. its quick on the straights and twisties. Some say it could even challenge a modern F1 car... but thats just what they say.

Carrying more than a 1,000 pounds more weight I think the Veyron will be at a disadvantage. Especially after a few laps when its cooked its brakes. FXX will win on anything but the fastest tracks, tracks which don't required regular braking.

**The Veyron will however win in a LA to Vegas run.

A diesel Lupo would beat them both in an LA to Vegas run since it won't have to stop at every petrol station.

The Nordschleife is a fast circuit, but the Veyron won't have the advantage because its 30 odd mph top speed over the FXX will be unobtainable on such a "short" straight.

The corners, not straights, are what matters at the Nordschleife, and on grippy slicks with a racing suspension set up, the Veyron doesn't stand a chance.

i reckon it'd be a close one, but i'd give it to the FXX, mostly down to its tyres and suspension being designed for the track not the road. But every review of the Veyron has praised its handling, so I reckon it'd be close, maybe a case of the Veyron getting away on the straights and the FXX getting ahead in the bends and under brakes. Also, I think the Veyron driver would have a much better time, esp. with AWD, than the FXX driver

I doubt that the Veyron, on road tyres, has much of an advantage over the FXX under acceleration, bearing in mind that the FXX is on slicks and is much, much, much lighter, and it will also be carrying a higher corner-exit speed.

So the advantage on the straights isn't much.

I suspect that with nearly 2.5tonnes to hustle through numerous high speed corners and repeated heavy braking the tyres and brakes would begin to fade quite rapidly as well on the Veyron.

the veyrons so called Speed adavantage dosn't apply here. the car will only go to 220 somthing mph until you Stop the car put another key in some slot turn it then drive. but once your in top speed mode if you turn the car it will revert back to its normal mode allowing it to again only go 220 somthing mph

oh yeah, forgot i heard that in c/d good call.
but yeah the veyron only goes to 230 in handling mode and is the default when u use the breaks or apply a decent amount of steering input when in topspeed mode

Where in the hell are you gonna use that to speed. That cars stupid and I think many buyers will probably get hurt or killed because the car is just to fast.

so they veyron basically would have no chance on anything but a huge oval since it
A: won't have a much higher top speed
B: wouldn't be able to keep up in the twisties, regardless of how clarkson said it handles
C: is too heavy and unprepard for the type of track work the fxx was designed for

c/d did say it was very twitchy/scary at 250 and felt almost like it was uncontrollable

someone is gonna die in that car because its top speed has been hyped so much that every one that gets one will want to test it and someone who is a better talker than driver will hit a tree at 200+ mph
then the veyron will have another record. highest crash speed for a production car
vw is playing with fire on this one
