Never realized the McLaren had an M motor in it. What a piece of shit.

I agree. I dont think the guy could drive.... lol

I would think the Veyron would cream the Mclaren off the line, guess I was wrong

wonder if he had the traction control off on the veyron. i remember back when they first tested it they had to go through a whole bunch of shit to turn off the traction control. that would have given the veyron a better take off i think.

I'm guessing it's simply the weight difference. It looks like they both got an equal launch, but the Mclaren only weighs 2500 lbs, IIRC. The Veyron is 4000-plus.

Yeah the low weight kills it off the line, but like he said pure horsepower wins up top

everybody here has seen videos of the veyron launching much harder than that..... i think it may have been rigged a little for dramatic effect. Stig had a killer launch though, and im betting the F1 sounds like jesus singing when it gets revved up like that
