The Bugatti Veyron is the current benchmark of exotic raw supercar performance, surpassing the 1000hp mark and has been the talk of town long before it was actually launched. That might end soon. Porsche is planning a Bugatti Veyron killer called the Porsche GT1. The announcement of the new GT1 comes shortly after Porsche announced the end of production for the Porsche Carrera GT. The Carrera GT (shown above) was only in production for 3 years and there are only 1,111 in the world, with more than half of it in North America.


The new Porsche GT1 will offer roughly 950 horsepower and will likely be based on the same chassis as the Porsche Carrera GT, except that it will have a solid roof coupe body instead of being a roadster. Despite having “only” 950 horses, the GT1 is expected to be lighter than the Veyron for better power to weight ratio. The Porsche Carrera GT weighs only 1380kg while the Veyron weighs 1887kg. The GT1 is expected to be around the same weight as the Carrera GT. Of course, it will likely have all wheel drive to put all those horses down to the ground so they can be usable for some good acceleration times. Top speed is expected to be 254mph (408 km/h), 2mph over the Veyron’s top speed of 252mph.

we both lose

The Veyron has already been killed. Don't believe me? SSC Aero Ultimate. I made a mistake when I said CCXR, I meant SSC.

oh by the way the veyron has a limiter, to prevent it from going over 252mph. with out that limiter the car can reach 305mph, but it will be very hard to control the car. Nice profile, I give you respect for the bmw gtr..... but a honda civic ain't a racecar.

The Ultimate Aero's acceleration is 0-60 mph in 2.78 seconds, slower than that of former top-speed record holder the Bugatti Veyron which does 0-60 mph in 2.46 seconds.

the only thing i can say is. To determine a winner is to see which car will run out of gas 1st.
find out though if the aero has a limiter also and if it does what is its top speed with out it.

Slow in acceleration by a margin. But top speed wise is faster than your damn boat which has an engine that engulfs the Aero.

HAHAHAHA. If you can get that Veyron going over 300, I'll give you props if you're not dead from the tire falling apart. The Veyron is almost redlining in 7th gear at 250. And it barely made it there, what makes you think it'll hit 300?

Who said the Civic was a racecar? Which Civic in my profile attempts to be a racecar? Only two are close, one is a drag car and one is a track car. But oh shit, they actually race.

Ok, let's recap.

You: Claimed the Veyron will outrun anything. At a 1001HP, a 10.2 1/4 pass is WEAK SAUCE.
Fact: CFT's turbo Si Civic runs 9s and probably pushes out 600hp and it's daily driven. Team Spank (located in Central Oklahoma) runs 10s in multiple Civics and their fastest car runs 10s without trying and is street legal. Outrun anything my ass.

You: Claim that adding aftermarket parts to increase performance aren't able to withstand long races.
Fact: Car's reliability has less to do with parts, reliability is all in the tuning.

You: Claim the Veyron is capable of going over 300MPH+ (in perfect conditions, w/o speed limiter).
Fact: Cars that go that fast need serious downforce, the Veyron doesn't provide downforce for shit.
Fact 2: The car redlines at 252 MPH in 7th gear. If it somehow magically makes it past that without blowing the feck up (it has multiple radiators), I'd be amazed.
Fact 3: Just because the car is capable, doesn't mean it'll actually do it. If I screw with my gear ratios. I guarantee the capability to go 300. Will it? No, but it's capable.

You: Claim gas will run out before the tires will.
Reasoning: It would at 250, at 300, that tire will fall apart faster than your gas tank hits empty if you don't somehow fly off the street.

You: Claim the Veyron is still faster than the Aero because it accelerates .22 seconds slower 0-60.
Reasoning: Do you know how long .22 of a second is.

Fact: The Veyron never had an official test speed run. Hence it held an unofficial "Top Speed" record. Whilst the Aero has an official record.

Fact: The Aero is a street legal car. Your Veyron isn't.

Do you know anything about CARS? The only things you have told me is stuff you read from news and blogs.

Haha...Spanked... Gone for a few days and an argument breaks out....And I thought I was the only a**hole that did that...

Its funny how the veyron is a 16 cylinder and how the AERO is a 8. Not to mention the AERO is doing this all on an old school type motor.
