As i've said for months the Plaid produces more than 1020hp contrary to what Musk would have peeps believe. An ...

Yep that's with roll-out so the 0-100km/h claim of 2.9 sec by BMW is accurate unlike their bullshit hp figures... ...

Very good although you should've increased the peak speed to 288km/h. The GPS speedo hit 288km/h at the 7:07 mark ...

I find it baffling that Lamborghini didn't get Pirelli to produce an bespoke new TrofeoR which they did for Pagani ...

Lamborghini executives shot themselves in the foot going with Bridgestone tyres for the STO. On most tracks Cup2R's would reduce ...

Neither did i but merely fast forwarded to the 0-60mph segment at the 15min mark so that i could see ...

I personally can't stand EV's but from a dispassionate, unbiased perspective the acceleration test by Mat Watson is a load ...

The main reason that the idiotic SUV market has gone ballistic is actually due to the monkey see monkey do ...

Yep the 8 speed PDK with more aggressive ratios and lightning shifts compared to the 6 speed manual pretty much ...

The 911 GT3 has at least 520 flywheel hp. The 100-200km/h times vary eg the Porsche factory GT3 at the ...

"The WRX STI Type RA NBR Special is a Prodrive-built time attack car based on a stock 2017 WRX STI ...

The driver was Richie Stanaway(which is not recorded) and it was on slicks...

It's not a VBox it's a Racebox made by a different company and there's a split second delay so it's ...

You're responding to a 10 year old post and Wikipedia, while flawed, is a source...

Speed at 8.85 sec 1/4 mile was 167mph...

I'll give the Yanks credit for at least making it clear that they use roll-out in their acceleration tests but ...

Ok if he says he doesn't use roll-out for his 0-60mph times i'll take him at his word...

"And I see Matt Watson specifically stating Carwow DON'T use rollout hasn't resulted in a response?" Do you have the ...

You're much too cruel...

The only specific condition where Cup2R's are in a class of their own is on a dry track for optimum ...

You're entitled to believe whatever you want but unless i see independent evidence using GPS data then it's just their ...

I haven't seen GPS used for the Opel Lotus Omega just car speedos for the high speed runs. We both ...

A unified approach is problematic eg. Porsche muddied the waters when it stated that Manthey Racing mods were considered to ...

I don't think it's correct to suggest that the car has been modified given that both Cup2R's and Bridgestone Race ...

The 285 km/h was speed limited. Some say it could do 300+ km/h but i can't see that happening with ...

Doesn't matter eg. when the SVJ was showcased at Estoril the track had just been resurfaced and was a bit ...

Cosimo says that German car manufacturers are cheating bastards...

Yes i read that but that doesn't require editing. It's not exactly a world renowned track :)

He didn't say newer layout he said older tarmac which suggests that it was resurfaced so why edit?

Yeah you're right a stock Bugatti Chiron in top speed mode should be able to do 100-200 km/h in 3.9 ...

I reckon you could spend hours deleting cars and amending spec figures that are inaccurate..

Actually the figures come from two sources ie. the JBPG standing mile and Bugatti's 0-400-0 pass both of which would ...

Based on my own stopwatch figures for the stock Bugatti Chiron i would disagree with you re the 100-200km/h acceleration ...

The Pur Sport should be quicker that the standard Chiron from 100-300km/h simply due to the 15% more aggressive gearing. ...

Just to complicate matters and this also from Bugatti's newsroom "The Chiron Pur Sport accelerates from 0 to 100 in ...

Yes he was referring to 6th gear acceleration according to this quote from the Bugatti newsroom. "Moreover, it accelerates in ...

Yep with Cup2R's they could have matched the SF90 time...

"Anyway, Bugatti didn't throw a "hissy" fit. And that was my point. You were wrong." You know this how exactly? ...

That's 0-100km/h in 2.9 sec and Lamborghini claim 3.0 sec so reasonably close to Lambo figures...

Ha no surprise there...

The Pur Sport figures were genuine and we saw the GPS device complete with speedo readout so conclusive evidence. The ...

"The Porsche 918 went way under 2.5 seconds to 60MPH and the Ferrari SF90 way under 2.5 seconds and nobody ...

"If the Chiron SS can 0-60 for 2.30 (presumably with a rollout), then the base Chiron and Pur Sport will ...

After only getting 2.59 sec 0-60mph(presumab ly with roll-out) in the Pur Sport Mat Watson now gets 2.30 sec in the ...
