I think a Bugatti Veyron would "blow it away!"


i dont think so........

remember, this is based off of a 1/4 mile time, not top speed.

i guess you can say .....

fast is to speed as quick is to time.

with the vette, i think it had the fastest speed and the quickest time.

sooooooo, the Bugatti is fast, but not quick.

i have a headache!!

2006 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 0-60 mph 2.7 Quarter mile 10.7
2009 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 0-60 mph 2.4 Quarter mile 10.1
2010 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport 0-60 mph 2.5
2011 Veyron 16.4 Super Sport 0-60 mph 2.4 Quarter Mile 9.6
2013 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse 0-60 mph 2.4 Quarter Mile 9.9


We cant compare a top end speed car to a 1/4 mile car, both are very different, yes, the Veyron is the fastest production car in the world, but its not a drag car, so it will get beat off the line , and it takes I think close to four miles for the Veyron to get to its top speed, I would have to look that up , and to be honest, dont care to

Good points.
We need to keep in mind too that the 209 mph on the timeslip is not it`s top speed, but it`s speed at the end of the quarter mile, in which it only takes just over six and a half seconds to get there! Guarantee even with it`s current gearing, give it another 4 or 5 seconds and it will be going much faster than 209 mph. Not to mention if he was willing to gear to match the Veyron`s quarter mile times, the top speed would be *well* over the Veyron`s.

I bet it falls on its face at 1321 feet, the way it sets.
But it would be cool to see that car on the salt flats getting a push, really open her up with the right gearing.

I have deleted my previous post surrounding this car. It was posted in poor jugement and my apologies go out to Rod, his wife and his upholsterer. The way the post was typed was irresponsible on my part and I am truly sorry. I know for a fact that Rod's upholsterer does excellent work and I have seen said car in person and it is truly amazing in the way it is built. I know that alot of people have complained in the way Rod builds his cars and they say he destorys Corvettes but I don't see it. I have seen mutliple builds of his at car shows around the area and they have all been truly astonishing to see, not to everybodies taste but when you really look into the way they are built it's amazing. I am sure that everybody has worked hard over the years to be able to create and afford to built these amazing machines. Again my apologies go out to everyone involved.
