    That's a heck of a price difference for not a staggering amount of difference in performance in real terms though.

    I was expecting it to catch up quicker than that.

    Do it against a Agera R. Rolling start I doubt theres anything faster.

    Pointless but interesting. Then again I don't see the point of the Bugatti (something to do with not being able to afford one?), all I'll ever remember it for is it's top speed, dozens of radiators and the ridiculously expensive tyres even if I applaud it for being built in the first place. I'd suggest by and far the Merc and it's ilk are far superior cars pound for pound and it makes to my mind the Ferrari F12tdf look like a bargain.

    Now I might be a bit biased here, but that Veyron took longer to catch that I thought it would.

    Really? Its one of the most disappointing noises in the car world IMO. Not in the same league as a lambo, Ferrari, aston, AMG in the noise department.
