171 When "tuning" just isn't enough. 730hp GT-R vs Veyron

Cover for When "tuning" just isn't enough. 730hp GT-R vs Veyron

It is possible to squeeze out impressive amounts of horsepower from almost any engine in any car, but can it be enough to outrun the worlds greatest supercar?

Some say that engine power is nothing when there is no way of converting it to movement of car. That's true. But what happens when you couple a heavily boosted engine with sophisticated 4wd chassis and super fast twin clutch transmission (think "GT-R")?

What happens is you get a very very fast car. Question is, can it outrun the ultimate of ultimate - Bugatti Veyron?

The answer is in video below. A group of people with more money than will to live in a certain country that, apparently, has no laws for road safety, tried it out for us. So you don't have to.

Well its true i cant 100% call the 458 Hideous simply becasue i havent seen it in real life, and as we all know cars look Much better when seeing them up close.

And as for the daily driver, its only the name, Means driving it daily, thats it, there is no definition of type of car that is a daily driver, its all in how you use it, anybody can use any type of car, if you use it daily, its a daily driver, its not Daily practical car with a boot and or comforts, it in how you use it, hence the Daily part.

with daily driver,a daily driver car i think is a practical car with boot rear seats and other conforts...u cannot call a caparo t1 or other race road legal cars a daily drive...driving those cars daily is quite imposible...a good daily drive supercar is no doubt the Nissan GT-R....and u cant call the ferrari italia ugly...i know in the pics in internet it sems hideous from the front but in real life is a very beatiful car..astonishing.

BumRush  10y ago

Umm, No, ANY car can be a daily driver, daily driver just means driving daily, so if i drove a Caparo T1, That would count as my daily driver, theres no such thing as a NON daily drivers car, its all in how you use it,

and ok, i wouldnt quite say hideous on the 458, but quite ugly, but i can only say that as i havent seen it in person.

You can drive it for five hours and not wrinkle your suit...Thats a GOOD daily driver.

Any car. If you\'re going to try and pass daily driver as some sort of solid classification, you\'ll need criteria to judge it. \"Breaking your spinal cord\" isn\'t an objective criteria.

l.o.l. come on BumRush. I agree the 458 is not as nice looking as the 360 modena..but hideous Hahaha! I like it. The first drive impressions of it have all been steller! They say it has the best engine note of any of the v-8\'s yet. thats saying a lot. They say it\'s acceleration is faster than even the beefed up f-430\'s. Read up on it.

No BumRush any car CAN'T be a good daily driver. No matter how nice a engine sounds you don't want it screeming in your ear all day long so you can't hold a conversation or hear the radio. And you don't want the car to snap your spinal cord every time you go over a pebal. A good daily driver has speed performance and comfort. You can drive it for five hours and not wrinkle your suit...Thats a GOOD daily driver.

lol Well you are right bout the Veyron being a Tank!. but any car can be a dialy driver, ANY car, but that all depends on the person.


User avatar

YoungSinatra  10y ago

The Veyron is built like a tank! Super tight. And it is a very comfortable daily driver. The GT-R is not a great daily driver. It has loud engine, transmition, tire and wind noise:( The NISSAN 370z is a MUCH better daily driver than the GT-R for about $50,000 less.

@vette

I only saw testing of the prototype. I don\'t know if the production Venom is or isn\'t reliable. It probably won\'t be as reliable as the Veyron but who knows?


User avatar

vette  10y ago

this arguement can go on and on for 1 year at least
yes i would get veyron on a computer game but not in real world with my money
in my opinion people who buy veyrons may
1:have money more than they can spend in the proper way
2:not know anything about other cars
3:only want to show of
that\'s it
i\'m not commenting again i\'ll just read what you guys say:)

The five cars easy. If the Veyron is everthing, the 5 cars are 5 everythings * 2.

The Veyron has street ability + luxury + good track performance. With 5 cars I could get perfect street ability (lux sedan) + perfect luxury (lux sedan) + perfect track performance (track car). And it would all be cheaper.

Of course, I\'d never do that, as luxury is a waste of money. IMO.

@NIN:
well i know there is only one(as i said venom is not reliable)
and you can see how unreliable is that by whatching its speed tests on youtube(in 1 run it blew the computers and the transmission)

@anonymous:
yes the only reliable part is that engine:D

venom is not reliable

I\'m not a \"Venom Lover\" but they\'ve only built 1 Venom so far. How would anyone know how reliable it is?
