The ultimate.

It would defintely thrash a Veyron around the TG track.

I reckon the Veyron will do a 1.30

So why no TG lap?

They let JC drive it from italy to London but not on the track. Because they know it can't win. Too much weight.

a fiver says it won't top the ZondaF

Well, I know it should be subzero because it was a class leader basically forever, because it's quick it has the steering wheel in the center, three seats, golden plated engine bay and so on.. and yet, it doesn't really have "that" sparkle IMO, so I gave it jsut a cool

What a supercar should be - light, powerful, uncompromised, hard to handle without talent and not for pretenders.
Not quite an F40, but similar philosophy.

subzero, anycar that holds the world record for so long deserves it.

Not to mention the coolness of sitting in the middle.

Sub zero!

It was May 11, 1994 when I picked up the Autocar & Motor magazine which had the Macca on the cover. Prior to this I had seen spy shots of the car and wasn't really interested in it (I dont really care about spy shots in general).

It was 15 pages of fantastic writing that made me an instant fan of the car. It was a car that was very unlike anything else around at the time - painstakingly built to the unique vision of a brilliant designer (Gordon Murray) who had cut his teeth with building World championship winning F1 cars at Brabham and McLaren.

Seeing the Top Gear clip of Tiff driving the F1 was icing on the cake. I must have seen that clip at least 50 times. What a sound - the best sounding engine in the world - bar none.

It is the best car in the world to me. I am sure the F1 will be gracing the lawns of Pebble Beach 25 years from now.

Sub-zero.

seriously uncool.

the Veyron is a better car, a faster car, and a far more interesting one. One of the F1s biggest fans is a man named Thomas Dscher, who owned an F1 and was involved with McLaren back in the day.....guess what he does now? he owns a Veyron and RUNS Bugatti.
That's great. It only took them 20 years, 600 kilograms extra and a quad-turbo V16 to get there. :roll:

Subzero for the F1 of course. King of 2 decades.

when the avg. person thinks super car there are four that come in to mind. McLaren F1, Ferrari F40, Bugatti Veyron, and Lamborghini Diablo. And pretty much in that order. McLaren has and is still a benchmark. everyone compares to the F1 even if it the other car beats it. everything comes back to the F1. so dif. subzero
