Its no different than if you were using awd with smaller displacement and a shitload of boost. The porsche 993/996 twin turbos and 959, skylines and shitty dsms have been launching like that for over a decade.Steve Theodore said::hail:
That, my friends, is why AWD + large displacement + turbos = unbeatable.
After what they did with the Koenigsegg, I don't blame them. Although Veyrons sell for ~£800k, they cost £5m each to make.AZmkiii said:It's a shame they are too afraid to let top gear test it, I wanna see some useful #'s from it.
Steve Theodore said:I watched the entire Top Gear race from Italy to Great Britain, and that is one hell of an impressive car. I did have a really hard time believing the "costs them $5 million and they sell them for $1 million" detail, but whatever.
Come on, give credit where its due. That is the first time they "wrecked" a car, its hardly grounds for never being trusted with expensive machinery again. Not to mention it seemed as though it was clear that they all agreed that the ccx was in serious need of some added downforce. After all, they are trying to go after the top speed record with no visible aerodynamics aids. It seems as though the Bugatti's aerodynamics are superior to that of the ccx.Z07 said:After what they did with the Koenigsegg, I don't blame them.

Were you in that car when it launched like that; lucky S.O.B!!!! So would you consider this the ultimate ride? We all know how you are partial to Lambos!allan said:Words cannot describe how much fun that was. It just hooks and goes, and you feel your stomach in your mouth. Best way to describe the accelaration is when you are on a roller coaster and you get that feeling in your stomach. With the Veyron it doesnt stop.
