Re: Veyron vs. The Road Video

I was wondering what we'd see first...the twin turbo GT wrapped around a pole or the Veyron recked. Winner = Veyron:

http://www.autoblog.com/2007/03/05/aw-snap-first-bugatti-veyron-to-be-wrecked-on-public-roads/

"We only know of one other time a Bugatti Veyron has been wrecked, and that was during the car's development when a prototype was destroyed doing a high-speed test. There there was the time a preproduction Veyron performed a very public spin-out at Mazda's Laguna Seca Raceway during the Monterey Historics. These incidents actually delayed the debut of the production car, though perhaps it should have stayed in the oven a bit longer if its designers were worried about stability at speed"

I think that most of the body panels are aluminum but portions of the fenders are CF.

For a car with an MSRP well over a million bucks, we assumed that when hydroplaning is detected the car would immediately enter hovercraft mode, but we now know that's not the case.

It DID enter hovercraft mode...just wasn't designed to do so at 200MPH :csweeney:
