    Only a V8 surprised me. Nice going there. Let's wait how the swedes answer to that.

    In my opinion yes it beats the Veyron's speed but it doesn't beat the Veyron in anything else, I mean that thing has what is it 1100bhp and is light and yet it only manages an extra 4mph! And anyway the Veyron can do 257mph but Bugatti limited it to 253mph so that the tyres don't explode very quickly.

    Note that wind tunnel testing also put the Veyron at 270mph and it's reckoned that with the planned 1200bhp that it could actually do 265mph+.

    This car doesn't thrill me in anyway, everything is copied from other exotics even down to the Koenigsegg interior. Veyron is still King imo, that thing is just a Drag Queen.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Yes very true plus the Veyron didn't go for a official top speed run from what is written. They know it's got nothing to prove I guess.

    Bugatti Veyron’s widely reported but unofficial top speed of 252mph..........What?

    Can someone explain how its Unofficial? just because a Koenigsegg got Caught Speeding at 250 means its a REAL record? The Bugatti Veyron Has been clocked @ 253Mph Plenty of times :| how about when Captain Slow Took it past 250?

    @ Mark: You still have to do a lot of upgrading and tuning before your Seat gets there.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Basically it has to be watched by a person from the world records to be the official top speed. Also it has to be the average speed of 2 runs, one in one direction and one in the opposite direction. This is so the car is unaided by the conditions.
