This is another part of Autocars "fastest group test in history". It is a short clip of an acceleration comparison between a Bugatti Veyron and an Audi R8. Both have a rolling start, so traction is not an issue here.
Bugatti Veyron CHASE! R8 V10 Spyder left behind...
My Audi R8 V10 Spyder was no match for the Bugatti Veyron but made for a hugely
At last week's The Supercar Kids' event, Jay Broom (aka JayKayBi) offered
the chance to spend the day with something rather special, a Bugatti Veyron!
And not just any Veyron,
the 16.4 Coupe belonging to Lord Pembroke of Wilton House, home of the
annual Wilton Classic and Supercars event, one of my personal favourite
events in the annual car calendar taking place each August.
Wilton is also home to the soon to commence 'Wilton Wakeup' events, kicking
off in spring 2013 they will be Sunday morning gatherings for car nuts in
the West of England, more information is to follow on that front!
The Veyron itself is
wrapped in a Gulf-inspired livery, created by radio-controlled-car painter
Ian Cook of PopBangColour and placed on the car to promote the Wilton
Classic and Supercars event.
A Quicksilver Sports Exhaust system is
also installed in the Bugatti, giving it extra noise; an area the car is
often criticised. The sound it made on first start from cold certainly took
me by surprise!

This is an unbelievable view of a car crash happening at a high rate of
speed. Please drive carefully!
In 2011 while on the Bullrun rally I witnessed a massive accident unfold
right in front of me. The driver of the Audi R8 Spyder was changing lanes
and did not see the Mercedes SL55 next to him and made contact with the car
at a high rate of speed. Once he made contact with the Mercedes the R8
bounced off and lost control causing him to slam into the back of a Honda.
Both the Audi and the Honda entered the fast lane where the car I was
riding in was traveling and we came extremely close to being tangled up in
the accident as well.
The Mercedes that was involved in the accident was owned by Ice T and he
pulled over to check the damage to his car and was able to continue
driving. The cause of the accident according to the police report was a
blown out tire and the Audi R8 was a total write off.
