So all that time that Bugatti delayed the car to perfect the aerodynamics and it still gets done by the Saleen? I extremely doubt that, ESPECIALLY when the Veyron is in its high speed mode. I'd like to see an emissions test of the entrants aswell

why doubt it, 750 conservatively rated hp, far superior race proven aerodynamics... the Veyron has a near 2 second 0-100 advantage, but from 100-200, the S7 TT is faster... this has been known for some time mate.

Why doubt what? Im not saying the Bugatti is better - I'm pointing out that there is no proof that the Saleen has better aerodynamics than the Veyron (depending on how you spin it, there could be hundreds of different "better" meanings)

universally accepted standard for "better aero"

Lift to drag ratio

the Saleen has the far superior numbers mate.

The Saleen produces far more d/f then the Veyron

The Saleen produces less drag then the Veyron

if by better, you mean the Veyron has adjustable aero, then yes, the Veyron is better.

The Saleen has long been known to be a wind tunnel queen... and the TT is further honed with more d/f with less drag.
