Gustav from GTBoard has managed to get hold of a Veyron Vitesse and an Agera R and they will race.
This will be VERY exciting!!!

Last time the Agera S murdered the Veyron, this will definatly be intresting!!



Anyone who feels like placing bets? :)

Last time people complained that the car wasn't in top speed mode (wont make a difference) and that they didn't do a standing start.
The Veyron owner from the last race didn't want to waste his €20.000 tires, hopefully the owner of this Vitesse doesn't bother too much.

I'm pretty sure that the Agera R will dominate in a rolling start, but a standing start would be very intresting to see.

That last picture is interesting, the picture is taking from the regular 16.4 champange Veyron from the last race, and the Koenigsegg on the other side of the vitesse is a CCX (I think)

Since they made the video we know the Koenigsegg won, or why else would they let them use the runway on Koenigsegg's home turf.

Will be interesting to see if the CCX gets a chance to race one of the Veyrons to show how the older models can hold their own.

You mean this one?

Its the Vitesse with Peter Saywells old CCX (#7032) on the runway.
Of course the Agera R will win, the question is by how much :wink:

Updates are posted on GTBoards facebook page.

The result/video will probally not be out for a couple of weeks

Its probally going to take a few weeks.. But at least we have something to look forward to :)
Koenigsegg has it going for them, the 0-300 record time (14.5 sec) was set on that track with that driver, while the Vitesses 0-300 (16.0s) was set on a track with better surfice with another driver.

So this probally means that the Vitesse got brutally molested..

Bugattis claimed 0-300 is usually much faster than the actual acceleration, for instance they claim the that the regular Veyron does 0-300 in 16.7s while in reality its about 18s.

Claimed 0-300 for the SS is 14.6 s, but when tested it does 0-300 in about 17 s wich is actually slower than what is claimed for the regular Veyron.
There should be almost no difference between the SS and the Vitesse, to my knowledge the only difference would be some extra weight and slightly better aerodynamics in the SS.

EDIT: Veyron SS when tested by german magazine

0-100 km/h: 2,7 s
0-130 km/h: 3,7 s
0-160 km/h: 4,9 s
0-200 km/h: 7,0 s
0-240 km/h: 10,0 s
0-280 km/h: 14,3 s
0-300 km/h: 17,5 s

Correct! Was updated a couple of months ago to the latest Agera R spec with the new brakes, the new öhlins aswell as triplex suspension, R engine, dynamic spoiler, new aero exhausts, new winglets, Aircores aswell as fresh paint and updated interior.

The car has clocked about 70.000km to date :)
