Just too heavy and down on power to catch an Alpha 12 GT-R.
Haha yeah it takes miles. It was built for one thing. Anyone who thinks its a drag car is mistaken.

Veyron is for top speed, it's heavy yes because it is the safest to go 260mph. You can mod an Rx7 or civic to go 200miles but that thing will be scary and in BVeyron you can do an eye surgery while doing 200mph.

What's hilarious is that the veyrons tires would melt off before it ran out of gas at 252mph (which only takes 12 minutes).

I know the engine is rated 3000hp...the production model is de-tuned.

If every member threw in $10000 we could buy one and have the fastest car on the planet. A turbo system for a Lambo costs $100k. Would love to see what work on a veyron would cost.

Certainly not a drag car. Basically just a status symbol at this point, because for the money( the SS costs what, $2M?) you can build 5 1000whp+ exotics, and then some.

I don't think that is the reason for the weight. I mean the car has 4 turbo's, essentially two engines, (W16), a 7 speed gearbox, huge wheels and tires, etc. It is meant to be a grand touring car with insane acceleration/top speed.

The SCC Ultimate Aero is supposed to go even faster( not sure if confirmed), and that only weighs 2xxx lbs, same with Konigsegg's they go 24x+ mph and are very light.

Imagine if a company like Underground Racing started modifying Veyron's, they would probably make 3000WHP

That is really cool!

Although even if I could buy a Veyron, there are so many other cars I'd rather have
