I like the rims, I have to get an R1 Lip and the 99 spec tails as well. I love the Vintage red, Is it an true Efini?

Re: Veyron Vs Mclaren

All you guys think you know stuff but you really don't. I work at Bugatti so i think i would know. If we are still talking about Bugatti vs. McLareen then listen to this fact. If the Bugatti and Mclareen were in a race to 200mph the Bugatti could wait until the McLareen is at120mph before it even starts and still beat it to 200mph. That should end any debate. As far as the barCRAPus goes. that thing would fall apart before it even gets close to top speed. Plus they had to ristrict the top speed of the Bugatti to 252 it can do much more. these are facts not opinions.

The Bugatti is much better, at 80 mph its using 50 HP, it has 1001. Thats just ridiculous.

Re: Veyron Vs Mclaren

The Mclaren F1 would beat a mclaren because i haerd tht it hot 276 mph,the bugatti blows it engine when it hits 200 so it would not beat a F1 LM in a race.The F1 LM is the fastest mclaren.

Re: Veyron Vs Mclaren

First of all if "MICHIGANMAN" really worked for Bugatti he would know how to spell, and I dont know of many Bugatti plants in Michigan considering there's only 1, and it's in France. Second of all, I dont know many race tracks that have 1 continous straightaway. The Mclaren destroyed the Bugatti's time on the Nurburgring. And even though the F1 was built in the early 90's it's still the most technologically advanced roadcar ever produced.

Carbon fiber monocoque chassis, magnesium alloy engine block, and engine bay is insulated with gold!

And from an engineering standpoint the Veyron is a pos. It has a 8.0 liter, 16 cylinder engine with four turbo's and all they could get was 1,000HP, iv'e seen daily driven single turbo Vipers with 1,000HP.

And the Mclaren F1 has a traditional 6 speed gearbox with a clutch, whilst the Veyron has a DSG gearbox. If you mated a DSG gearbox to an F1 it would be a VERY close to the Veyron in a straight line.

627HP VS 1,001HP It shouldnt even be close, but the sad fact is that it's only half a second quicker in the 1/4 mile

Re: Veyron Vs Mclaren

these 2 cars cannot be compared.

there is ten years difference in age and ten years difference in technology.

rather compare the enzo with the veyron, but not the mclaren. these type of questions should be left to 10yr old school boys to fight over and not grown adults whom, with any small ounce of knowledge will know that comparing these cars is futile.
comparing these cars is like comparing CB Radios and Cell phones. each have advantages and each have disadvantages.

Re: Veyron Vs Mclaren

1st Every comparo here should be about street legal cars.
2nd Did anyone know what were the best times of the Mclaren F1 around the Nürburgring/Nordschleife?
3rd What can a Veyron run around the Nürburgring/Nordschleife?
4th Mclaren F1 doesn't need 4 turbos like veyron and has no need for 4 more cylinders.
5th A Mclaren F1 has a V-12 engine made by bmw so if you gave it 2 turbo's nothing will stand a chance Mclaren F1 Twin Turbo didn't exist.
6th Last someone has to step up and make this possible.

Re: Veyron Vs Mclaren

There is something about the F1.
i dont know what it is
makes it soo special, the enzo, ccx, s7 and all those other cars are not as special as an f1, it is truely exotic and is unique
I JUST DONT KNOW WHY!
First time i saw an f1 was in NEED FOR SPEED II
I feel in love, i was 6 at the time, and wanted it soo bad but when i heard that the company dosent make them anymore (when i was 10), i cried!
i dont know why, but this car is truely amazing somehow to me
and IN MY OPINION, the bugatti is not as unique as the F1
No car will EVER be as unique to me
MY OPINION!!!
i got kicked out of some forums for accusing saleen s7 designers of having to have copied the mclaren f1! KICKED OUT!
dont want that to happen again....

Re: Veyron Vs Mclaren

The Bugatti Veyron is the best car overall right now, but I think is not going to be long for a new super car to be developed by another automaker.
What do ya'll guys think of the SSC Ultimate Aero TT???
