Drag Race: Bugatti Veyron SS vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 15th, 2015

POV Veyron vs 918From the moment that you hear the 918 driver gleefully exclaim, “Let’s get this #*@!%#@$”, you know that you are in for a hard fought drag race. Face it there are not too many cars that are going to take the hole shot away from a Porsche 918 Spyder. If there is one car that is capable, then it just might be the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (world record top-speed production car).

As expected, the Porsche grabs the initial advantage (at least in the first pass) and holds on until the 1320-foot mark in a desperate grab for victory. The Porsche is equipped with a hybrid propulsion system that incorporates lithium-ion battery powered electric motors on the four corners, so a great degree of torque comes instantaneously. The Bug comes on strong in the trap end of the track and nearly overtakes the Porsche in the first race and flat out catches the Porsche driver sleeping in the second. The Spyder takes the third and decisive race with ease. Lucky for the Porsche, this was not a one-mile or rolling race, huh?
