Two 800+hp GTR's vs. Bugatti Veyron

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iiZsBC0zmA

White is such an awesome color on the Veyron.

Too bad I didn't know my legal rights when Streetfire had one of my videos on their site illegally long enough for it to generate over 12,000 views. They response was to offer to buy me a beer, and that they weren't making any money off of it. Yeah right. That's why they have a TV show now right? Grrr...

Fast cars, lotsa money, pro cameras and a crane. And racing in the rain with no helmets?

I think the race would've been a lot different if the pavement was dry. AWD has an advantage even at a 80mph roll with power levels like that.

That's the video from the first post, by the way.

Go figure--I didn't even think about that. But traction still played a huge factor in all that with the rain.

Well made video with some really great editing. The cars are definitely impressive. For all the money involved in the filming in terms of cars, they should've just gotten permission to close the road. I bet there were closer calls than the ones left in the video.

Was it just me, or did the Bugatti's spoiler flip up to act as an air brake?

The spoiler does act as an air brake when decelerating.

The car they split in the video looks like an R34 Skyline. I assume that car is also with them.

Pretty awesome idea. It would be nice to see some of the other high-end cars incorporate something like that. Pop out brake cooling ducts that act as drag fins would be pretty sweet.

I didn't see the r34. What time was the split?
