Fastest car in the world is shatteringly fast and vastly capable, but lacks emotion.

Our Verdict

Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron redefines what's possible in a road car, but does it justify its eye-watering price?

Is there any possibility of a full UK road test on the Veyron, and any chance of that claim that Jeremy Clarkson KEEPS banging on about, that if you set a McLaren F1 off and let it get to 120mph, the Veyron would still beat it to 200mph? That would be one cool video.

Clarkson banged on last week about the Veyron being the fastest car in the world or some such dubious accolade. I know Bristol Cars banned him after he made disparaging comments about their vehicles, but maybe he should get somebody not related to him to try the Bristol Fighter T......"maximum speed of more than 270 mph has been electronically limited to a more than sufficient 225 mph at only 4500 rpm" (from the Bristol website). Knowing Bristol's legendary understatement, I imagine that this car is if anything faster than their claim.

I think that this car is way to expensive, who would buy buy it anyway. It's great a car but I've only ever seen this car on TV, and thats saying something. I think VW have tried to make this Bugatti too perfected

when top gear put the Veyron around the top gear track everyone thought it would top the list, however as we all know it did not. Main reason its to heavy around the corners and on a track there are bends which the Veyron mass bulk and power struggle to cope with. to much power can corrupt the car

Aceman - I don't know where you live but in the Mayfair/Knightsbridge/Chelsea belt you see these on the street and for sale (if you want to see one there is one currently displayed at Jack Barclay's on Berkeley Square).
As to the question of who buys it anyway, London has plenty of people whose annual earnings are into 8 figures - these people buy these because they can, and owning such a machine comes with a certain amount of prestige in certain circles. I know of an owner now on his 3rd Veyron - also has the Koenigsegg, a Carrera GT etc. I think you'll find that above a certain level buyers do not so much worry about the price as the Veyron will be an iconic car in supercar history.

Who keeps dragging these old threads up? This one is nearly 18 moths old for crying out loud.
