to compare track performance,the only circuit both cars have raced on is the Topgear track. Caparo t1 did 1:10.6 and Ron 1.16.8.
Thats basically a runway so its mostly straights.
This, even though the caparo t1 relied heavily on downforce to corner well; and as Jeremy Clarkson said,in a slow corner, it has NO grip at all; and most of the corners on TG were SLOW except for the first and follow thru.
The T1 was sliding, oversteering , understeering and whatnot as a result.
so most probably the incredible T1\'s laptime was due to its superb acceleration on the straights, which smokes any other supercar except the \'Ron by far.
But given the Veyron SS is faster than a T1,the 6s slower laptime only attested to the horrible cornering abilities of the veyron, relative to supercar standards.
this is only expected given it weighs nearly 2 tons, and we cant expect 2 tons to corner as agily as 1 or even further, 0.5 tons of the T1.
That also occured with the original \'Ron vs the Zonda F roadster, which did 1.18.3 and 1.17.8.
