Can a Porsche 918 Keep Up With a Bugatti Veyron?
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is certifiably the fastest car… in the world. It notches zero to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, 100 mph in five, and will top out at a governed 258 mph. Not a car that’s messing around, but it isn’t invincible. A Veyron Super Sport, Porsche 918 Spyder and a number of other supercars partaking in the recent San Diego-to-Miami goldRush rally, peeled off during a leg of the trip to go drag racing. The Porsche and the Bugatti lined up at the strip… and the results may surprise you. RELATED: Rare Bugatti 'Black Bess' Might be the Prettiest Veyron of All
In the video, posted by 918 Spyder owner Salomondrin, the Porsche shows the Veyron its hybridized, hypercar legs – taking the first pass by a few feet and the third pass by a number of car lengths. The Veyron gets a much better jump on the second run, and after six total passes the two cars finished with three wins a piece. Unfortunately, no elapsed times were listed.
In an unbiased test setting with the same driver, the Porsche should conceivably win each time. The 1,200 horsepower 8.0-liter quad turbocharged Veyron Super Sport can manage a quarter mile time in around 10 seconds, while the V8-hybrid Porsche chips one to two tenths off that time in around 9.8 seconds.
Either way, you’re looking at two of the fastest car in the world, bar none.
