    I'm not sure you can compare a Veyon and S2000 over size differences. Just saying.

    And weighs more than a stripper F150. I was actually kind of surprised at how loud it is inside, too. Car and Driver has it louder than an ACR (not saying that's really bad, mind you, just surprising.) I respect the car, but it's far from my favorite.

    Maybe, but its top speed became so overhyped that everything else was irrelevant.

    I wouldn't expect the Veyron to be fastest, just curious to see what it would do. Seemed awfully fast on the TG track. The Stig had it understeering pretty badly; perhaps Tiff's method of slight drifting (with the ESP off) might help to tighten the line, who knows.
    For brakes, the Veyron seems pretty impressive from what I've seen. By Autocar's 0-100-0 stats, it stops faster than the CGT, Enzo, Zonda (S, not F), and Caterham CSR 260. It also did much better than the GT3 RS in C&D's fade resistance tests from 70 mph. Not the same thing as numerous 150-90 stops on a long lap on the 'Ring, but still very surprising results nevertheless. (The GT3 RS's distance grew after each stop, to +27 feet from the first one; the Veyron fluctuated around +/- 2 feet .)

    You never saw how much the other cars consume at top speed.

    iirc changing the tires was like $30k?
    yeah, and you have to hip the damaged/worn one directly to Molsheim.

    for high speed breaking, the Veyron has an advantage on some cars, since a big part of the breaking power is generated by the adjustable rear wing, so breaks are not going to be as stressed as on other cars. this without considering the Veyron weights two times the other cars.

    for as regards the comparison with the GT3 RS, I suppose the Porsche wasn't equipped with carbo-ceramics breaks.

    if it wasn't for the top speed, the Veyron would have been just the ultimate upgrade of a Bentley Continental GT.

    On the Nurburgring, MC12 Corse will be faster
    It is closer to the racing car.

    it's actually better than the racing car having no air restrictors and bigger wing, just to say a couple of differences..

    besides, it's not road legal (and I don't care if Edo Competition has made it road legal or ttried to do that).

    That one was equipped with the carbon ceramics. Looking at the GT2 test, that GT3 RS may have been an anomaly. The GT2 was as consistent as the Veyron and on average stopped only 3 feet shorter than the Bugatti.

    I'd vote the Zonda F, but for an everyday car I really wouldn't think it would be a practical car to drive about, would be rather interesting but it really isn't that practical, for the fun adrenaline hair on fire excitement, it has to be the Zonda. Cause' James May cannot control that thing at all, lol
