In Grand Tour Eboladrome lap I recall Vulkan having weird engine noise like it had traction control on in the slow turns.

Saxy

The reason the laptimes are dissapointing is because the vulcan doesn't seem to be fitted with LC which means other cars can get the jump on it from a standing start

I don't know if the tyres are street legal, but at 2:23 they definitely have tread. In fact judging by the pattern, I'd guess they are Cup 2s.

2:35 & 2:43 - They are definitely Michelin Cup 2s. So much for all the theories about them not being very sticky.

The statement in the video I watched said upside down at 190mph.

Says upside down at 200mph in this video at 5:15.

The Koenigsegg would only have 215.5kg at 100mph (660kg at 175mph).

At 200kph, the Vulcan has about twice as much downforce as the One.

...Those claims of said companys saying there car generates enough downforce to drive upside down, And then theres a reason why nobody is willing to do it or make a test track for it..........

First of all, I believe the quote was 1324kg of downforce at 320kph. Hardly enough to "drive upside down".

At 160kph it would have 1/4 of that, i.e. 340kg of downforce. Hardly too much a difference to the 230kg of downforce the koenigsegg would have. But if it were cup2 tires, good for the Vulcan. I honestly was a bit disappointed at the laptimes from both the Topgear and the GT.

The Vulcan has enough downforce to drive upside down at 190mph though.

i doubt the Vulcan was on street tires. It was doing Au rouge at 200kph and consistently pulling 1.8+g's.
In contrast the one:1 would go through Au rouge at 160kph.

Hey Saxy - At 2:27 it appears to be on treaded tyres but the vehicle isn't road legal anyway.

Is that on slicks?

That vulcan was pulling 2+g's in some high speed corners. Nice to see the girl put in proper use. Definitely faster than a GT3 car if no passenger and clear track.

Actually, I found this video, so those times may be legit.

Yes. I'm not sure where the records are stored, so I'll leave it to you. The 2:16 and 2:25 were also estimations directly from Radical's website.

Which means they have to deleted as slicks are not road legal anywhere.
