    Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGww3qGC5CU

    Check it out before they take it down. From today's show!

    The car might just be worth if for the "Special Key".

    Tires will last only 15mins at top speed!

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret tra

    Thanks for the post, it's a nice show! But, actually, the Veyron is an hilarious concept

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    Thanks dude, cool video

    200-300 kph in 9,4 seconds

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret tra

    I just watched episode 2 and it was awesome!
    that veyron is from another planet. at that top speed it will go through the tires in 15 minutes, but that isnt even the problem as the fuel will only last 12 minutes!!
    omg i love it!

    i think...OMG that's fastttttt pretty useless if you dont'live near this track

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    I watched this episode last night. IMO one of the most enjoyable in a long time.

    It was amazing seeing everything fly past like that at 253mph (407kph)!! The car just seemed to do this without any fuss. I love that dial showing bhp developed: 1001hp.

    16 cylinders. 4 turbo chargers. 10 radiators!! Spectacular technology.

    I loved the quality of the interior of the Veyron.

    Not my type of car though.

    It was disappointing that VW wouldn't let Top Gear see how quick the car is around their airfield/track.

    Hopefully, someone who owns a Veyron will cooperate and let Top Gear have a go. I'm sure it will be dreadful though - heavy with poor handling? I think so!

    When they compared the Audi TT vs Alfa Romeo Brera vs Mazda RX8, the Audi was so much more beautiful than the rest. Strange contest. No BMW 3 series coupe included? I guess it was a German vs Italian vs Japanese contest.

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    This car is a sort of Concorde moment.

    Well said, Captain Slow!

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    It amazes me how composed the car is at 407kmh! I know some people do not like this car, others think it has no character, but I think this car is amazing and there will never be another like this. I need to find a way to make more money and move to Europe!

    Exactly, this video shows what the Veyron is all about - speed.

    So I don't really know why people make a big fuss about how it handles on a track. This car wasn't made to set a new lap record around Hockenheim, but to boldly go where no car has gone before....

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    Very impressive, I would like to have use of that test track though.

    There is a video showing Tiff push a mclaren to top speed on a test track and the tires did blister on him.

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    performance is thest, no doubt on that !!!

    but I still dont like the Veyron!!!!

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret track!

    ok I made the error not watching the vid first !!!!

    Absolutely amazing video !!!!

    that buton with the key is just UNREAL !!!!

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret tra

    so what should we call Captain Slow from now on??? lol

    When Evo magazine reviewed the Veyron, they had a group test with the Enzo - CGT - Zonda, they said that it can handle too...they were impressed by that but still stated that the car lacks character and soul...there's no drama at all...

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret tra

    Well actauly from what ive heard the car is Rather good on a track, very light and nimble for such a large heavey car. I think it may even surprise a few of us what i might b able to do. The chap on youtube said that said German engineering i think is wrong. From what i know Most of the cat aas developed by british guys, i know the awd is for a fact hehe

    Re: Veyron driven by Top Gear on VW Top secret tra

    what a car.....simply amazing....agree with rossi , the veyron reminds me of the concorde era, there will never be another one

    Ah c'mon, why do you have to be so nit-picking?

    It's the same track that's been used in the latest AMS speed test.
