Bugatti Veyron vs. Koenigsegg CCXR in white hot drag race
While the two insane supercars may seem similar on paper – two seats, mid-engine, 1,000 horsepower, stratospheric pricetag – their approach could hardly have been any different. One was the sum of all of an industrial giant's considerable resources, the other the project of a start-up with a dream.
So which is faster in a straight line, the all-wheel-drive heavyweight or the rear-drive sprite? Somebody somewhere put the two together and raced them from a 60-km/h (37 miles per hour) rolling start all the way up past 310 km/h (192 mph). Follow the jump to see how it went down.
