Meh.

A Cessna can outrun that thing in a minute or two anywhere but on a special straight highway.

After a certain point, cars are going fast enough. Adding more power is useless. It's like dropping a nuke on a mine than would have been fine with 100lbs of TNT.

Eat the Veyron Super Sport for breakfast? 1,184 BHP in the Veyron SS beats that Ferrari by a not small number. I only read the article, does the embedded video specifically mention it outperforming the Veyron? And why am I even bothering since I'll never drive, own, or probably ever even see in real life any of these cars anyway :-P

Veyron SS = 1200hp

Ferrari GTB = 900

Hey subby, wouldn't you think "eating Veyron's for breakfast" is a bit of an overstatement at this point?

Quite true. Most people don't live where this is a useful machine to drive as they won't get to experience it.

Then again, some people get to drive cars like this and look what happens to them.

It depends. It`s all about power to weight ratio, square inches of rubber on the tarmac, and the composition of the rubber.

To make things silly, if you have 10,000 BHP and pram wheels and your vehicle weighs 20,000 tons you could be beaten in a drag race by mostly anything with a decent engine and tyres.

After about 70mph aerodynamics come into play. It`s not so cut and dried although I reckon the veyron would beat it.

The Veyron SS = 1200hp pushing 4,162 lbs.

The Ferrari = 900hp pushing 2,200 lbs.

Losing 300hp but dropping nearly a ton in curb weight?

Oh, I don't think that they are bad looking...but they are dated in comparision.

He looked like he was trying to not pee his pants. Watch The Stig keychain hanging from the ignition and note the acceleration at the same time the writer is trying not to scream in terror.

I saw three Lamborghinis on Saturday while I was out doing yard work. Each time I thought to myself, "Wow, I'd sure like to have one of those someday." then I realized where I live and that there isn't anywhere to really turn one of those cars loose anywhere near where I live. Then I thought, "Maybe a Miata would be a better choice."

Should I kill myself or just turn in my Man Card?

Yes. But only because you called it a Miata and not its real name. MX-5s are absolute beasts at short track and autocross. Peppy engine and they weigh nothing.

/watch out, I know Gran Turismo

If you fit in one ( I can't ) Miatas are one of the biggest bangs for the buck available.

I can't call them by their right name ever since Jack in the Box was giving them away when they first came out and the guy in the ads had a lisp. Mathththsda Miata will be forever burned into my brain.

\I'll be careful. I only know GTR

So with the whole "big SUV or sports car = small penis" argument...does that mean the best possible car for picking up chicks is a rusted out '85 Buick Century with 200K miles on the clock?

No.
Its the thing for picking Guys who hate SUV's (as well as guns, fast cars, motorcycles, and sports) and only think about penis all day.

/Every single thread its penis, penis, penis.
/I mean really, its only a twelve inch long appendage, get over it.

Hey, some of us don't like to fold it in half, even for storage.

Twitch, you should have NO problems getting chicks into that Century. Especially down at the country bar next to the trailer park. Try at about 1.45 AM any weekday. At least I never have trouble there.

The F70 will weigh just over half a Veyron SS, but with over three quarters the power. On top of that, a significant amount of torque is available starting at zero MPH. Add a significantly slipperier (sp?) body and you have a Veyron beater.

That said, neither of them beats a '54 300 SL in terms of absolute greatness; Or even a McLaren F1 for that matter.
 
2012-04-25 03:38:06 PM  
I imagine that trying to employ all that power would wrap you around a tree. Ferrari's aren't known for being easy to drive.
