Bugatti Veyron hits the drag strip for fast quarter-mile: VideoThu, 29 Dec 2011
The folks over at DragTimes have recorded a Bugatti Veyron 16. 4 while it ran the quarter-mile against a tuned Nissan GT-R at Palm Beach International Raceway.
While the French sports car looked out of its element, it was right at home doing what it was designed for, going fast.
The Veyron clicked off a 10.175 seconds at 139 mph and bested the GT-R by 0.8 second.
With a 0-to-60-mph time of 2.5 seconds, a top speed north of 250 mph, and a price tag of more than $1 million, it's appropriate the Bugatti has a blistering quarter-mile time.
