I was gonna say... the most hardcore Cayman ever is slower than a Veyron SS around a handling track? THen i saw the temperature, and now it makes sense.

But again, all those years when people said Veyron's can't handle, the SS was faster than a 458 from the same era around a handling track.

To be fair the Veyron wasn't faster than the 458 because of the handling. It's a massively overpowered tank with huge tires and AWD that wrestles itself around the track and lives from its enormous acceleration.

Well it did well from memory on the Top Gear lap and in the United States of America it raced against the Holy Trinity and the Pagani Huyara. It didn't finish last, albeit that was a Bugatti Veyron Supersport.

In a fast track with lots of straights like Monza, Veyron would beat 458, I believe. But I can only speculate. Maybe it understeers like crazy on those land speed record tyres. Who knows.

Veyron has huge amount of acceleration to compensate for it's handling anyways for most tracks.

They Veyron SS and the Veyron handled completely differently. They Veyron moved sluggishly, but the SS was set up by a totally differently.

Ironically, I wanna say is that the Veyron SS could have been much faster still on track, had it been given proper tires. They Veyron had hard heavy tires that were meant to withstand 440kph runs, which makes them too hard for track handling. Had it used semi slicks like other supercars, it would be able to corner and put down the power much better still.

Yet at this handling track, without straights, the SS was already faster than the 458, the 12C and the 570s. And yeah, with stickier tires, it would have done even better, which begs the question of the Chiron. Its top speed is limited likely because it uses Cup2 tires unlike the bespoke top speed tires of the Veyron. It's a shame nobody really gave these cars a proper test
