Super Car Showdown: Bugatti Veyron vs. McLaren F1


Bugatti Veyron vs Mclaren F1
The production crew over at Top Gear has outdone themselves once again. This could be called the ultimate drag race. A showdown of Goliath and Goliath. In the right lane, we have a McLaren F1, the former champion of all things speed. In the 1990’s, the F1 broke the world record for the fastest production car by hitting 242 MPH. 15 years later, the Bugatti Veyron became the new heavy-weight champion, breaking the 250 MPH barrier and setting the record at 252 MPH. Although SSC’s Ultimate Aero and the Porsche 9ff GT9 claim faster speeds than the Veyron, neither of them are as refined or polished as the Veyron. If I were to choose one of these, the Veyron would most certainly be my choice.

Top Gear pitted these two contenders against each other in a one mile drag race. The setting; a closed road in Dubai with a mile and a half of clean, even asphalt. Richard Hammond mans up the Bugatti while the Stig hammers the McLaren. Which do you think will be the fastest? Who will make it to the mile-marker first? No spoilers here, watch the video to find out for yourself.
