mclaren is still the fastest N/A production car in the world. 

Author Loradeonmoon ( ago)
@Brittow but not the car with the most horsepower, not anymore maybe even
not the fastest because of the ZenvoSt1, the new danish supercar

@ecchibanzaii And still the Bugatti is the fastest car ever built....

that was thrilling two of the best cars ever in a all out faceoff

Author Ecchi-BANZAII!!! ( ago)
@daniel0164 In such a drawn out drag race it's all about the HP because in
the end weight is the least of your problem. Air resistance is the greatest
enemy when it comes to speed. The weight is only noticeable at the very
beginning, but the Veyron had AWD and twice the weight, that should make up
for the N/A engine at almost half the HP.

Author Dan Gotze ( ago)
@ecchibanzaii Yes because the mclaren weights alot less. Weight spoils
everything in a car

Author JEicholz ( ago)
@indianajoneanaheim2 Yes but if a Frenchmen was driving it he would have
surrendered half way threw the race.

It takes 4 hundred more horse powers 4 turbos 8 more cylinders and 12 years
for Bugatti to make a faster car than McLaren. McLaren, I salute you.

Author excel4600c ( ago)
give the Mclaren 1000 HP then this would be a race. the mclaren is lacking
like 400 hp. But the Mclaren is NA and the Bugatti has 4 turbos.

veyron has 4wd 2 clutch gearbox and all existing electronic systems,while
f1 doesn't have any of these,manual gearbox,rwd,non electronic help etc.
veyron should be faster even without launch control. ok,f1 is faster
0-60,but what happens after that? veyron passed him at the end! f1 is light
and simple,that's why it's better than veyron at drag race,and even better
than enzo ferrari on track,really amazing car!

this should be the top comment, the mclaren they used is the "low end"
mclaren. They should have used the McLaren LM-GTR race version that is
street legal. its 300kg less in wieght and had atleast 200 more HP than the
McLaren used here. Its like pitting a porche GT3 against a boxter. I think
the Veryon would have won still but the LM Mclaren is atleast 1/4 faster
than this "base" model McLaren. REMATCH TOP GEAR!

That's sad the Bugatti is almost 20 years newer then a F1 and it only won
by half a second. I swear, one simple engine mod i.e Turbo... the F1 would
destroy the Bugatti...

@infpreds your an idiot. The F1 has a naturally aspirated 6.1L BMW S70/2
V12 with 627 HP and i don't think anyone would fit a supercharger to it to
ruin the value.

Actually Mclaren will win because nobody it is gonna run 200 miles per hour
on the road 180 is more than enough because your not in a race circuit most

@chiznazzz yeah...the mclaren got up first because the bugatti didn´t use
lauch control....if you do a race using the Bugatti´s lauch control the
mclaren woudn´t win even a 100m sprint

1/4 mile Mclaren looks like it would win.

@FinalFantasyCenter yes that 1994 mclaren got passed by a 2010 bugatti.
they are 2 very different cars from 2 very different times. id rather have
the mclaren. the veron is nice but unless your always doing 250mph, why not
get the proven, world famous, supercar.

Author TheRadiastral ( ago)
Beautiful example of the difference of light weight to powerful. In the
real world, on the streets, weight is the key and major factor. As you pass
250-300 km/h (160-180 mp/h), air resistance will be more and more of a
factor, thus aerodynamic properties get more important. So is power. And we
see how a drag race differs from a track race. Veyron lost the start and
won closer to max speed, just as a bike vs super-car will always win at the
start but likely loose after 300km/h or in corners.

Author VantageCigarretes ( ago)
@MikeWasHere10 Of course it is. It's still the most practical supercar to
this date. When you drive on 6th gear you can still have good mileage in
McLaren F1. When you drive Buggati you have to take with you a whole gas
station. Average 24,1l per 100km on the highway or 40,5l in traffic jam.
Man what a engine 4 turbos, 8 liter, 16 cylinders. Too much, too much. And
by the way it's a car for everyone, even woman can get in and drive a
250mph. It's ridiculous.

@VantageCigarretes So you're saying the Mclaren is more practical than the

Author tarun1982 ( ago)
Ahhh! the Bugatti will just go really fast in a straight line... cant
accelerate out of corners as fast as the McLaren, cant go as fast in a
curve as the McLaren (McLaren will stick to the road better in high speed
curves cos body is designed for consistent down-force thru curves and
straights) Takes soo long to get up to speed, that on a race circuit, it'll
finish far behind the McLaren F1. The F1 brakes a lot more efficiently and
rockets back up to speed far quicker cos of its light weight

@brzuchomowca this is not fake. hamster did a run without lc or nothong.
Without electronic bugatti is slower especially at 1/4 mile. For me bugatti
is a fastest grand tourer. You can't feel the speed in one of this. McLaren
F1 is still best designed car. With less power he have almost the same
performance. And for good or very good driver is a better and faster car on
the road than bugatti. And won LM

@MikeWasHere10 Yeah yeah yeah, and got place for 3 passanger and over 200l
of luggage space. You talking shit.

The bugatti isn't just cheaper and faster but it's also more practical. The
bug wins.....

Author BarnET0 ( ago)
the bugatti wins becouse of the 4 wheel drive system. When the mclaren gets
grip it gets faster to 200km/u but than the drag starts to beat the weight
advantage the F1 has. And the Bugatti starts to reel it back in. i think
the F1 is more of a achievement being build 17 years ago
