I have a feeling that it will be comparable to the McLaren F1 in the 0-60 area but i dont know about its top end. It will probably be able to pull a few more mph that the McLaren F1. Remember that the McLaren was made in the early 90's it took them almost 10 years to catch up.

Unhappy

dont get your hopes up kid the tvr has 800bhp and it wais the same as the 300 bhp ones so that means it is super fast infact so fast that tvr sais it is too dangarous so it has been baned from the road. and if you want to know it does 0-60 in 2.9 seconds witch is faster than the mclaren f1 and a max speed of over 240mph witch is better than the maclarens 200 mph

I think it will be close with the F1 from 0-60 and pull hard in the 230mph on top end

I think they should bring it out just once to race against all the best cars on top gear, in an elimination round, so if you defeat Murcielago, oyu take on Zonda, then XJ220, then Mclaren f1, then Veyron.

Are you saying that the Veyron is the most competition out of the cars you listed?

Well, with a claimed top speed of 252mph, and very quick acceleration, it should be the highest competitor in a 4 mile run.

Top Gear should just do it like they did the Zonda/Murcielago. Straightline and track with the Speed 12/Veyron.

I think distance would be the key in that race. The TVR would pull ahead on 1-2 miles, but over that the Bugatti would edge onto the lead with a higher top end speed.
