    Such old news...

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

    Old news but am I right in stating that if the Veyron wasn't limited due to its tyres it will still be as fast or faster than the SSC. Also has the SSC officially been recorded or not as i remember it was unofficial at one stage. And I'm sure something else is faster than the SSC now.

    But does it have such a good ride quality when you are it's top speed? Probably not.

    Its faster but the Veyron's interior is at the top, the SSC also has a good interior, but the Bugatti Veyron is easy to drive and probably every part costs about $4000 (According to Top Gear)... if the Veyron cut off some weight, it probably might be faster

    tbh, you cant put a title like Move over Veyron until you can get a car that is not only faster, but also has incredible build and ride quality and gives you all the luxuries like the Veyron does

    Except that they would both have to refuel about 4 times... and the Aero would require a service half way along the route, whereas the Veyron has normal service intervals.

    I wonder, why don`t they ever put a CCXR Edition, Veyron, SSC Aero and that Ruff GT on a test for top speed...

    Wait the last time I read something about this here are the top speeds (recorded by Guiness World Records):

    SSC Ultimate Aero TT: 256.15MPH / 412.23 KM/H
    Bugatti Veyron: 253.81MPH / 407.16 KM/H (LIMITED)

    They need 182 Horsepowers to go 2.34 MPH / 5.07 KM/H faster?

    Haha move over Veyron? No chance, the Veyron with 1200bhp would kill this thing and still be as comfortable and manageable as it's known to be. The SSC is also what 70-80% the weight of the Veyron, it might be faster but people seem to forget the Veyron is limited, yes that's right limited to 253mph. The tires have been tested at 257mph comfortably (meaning more speed is available but at a higher risk) but they made the decision to take 4mph off for safety reasons.

    Watch the top gear video and notice how the Veyron still has about 1700rpm left and is no where near redlining or maxxing it's engine. The Veyron doesn't need to hold the fastest title in the world as VW and it's engineers know nothing can touch it as an all round package.

    Anyway it looks like 9ff will be taking their GT9 to 260mph later this year. And there's rumour of some other small company aiming for 270mph.

    Plus the SSC looks a rip off of so many cars including my namesake, no originality as usual.
    I'm a bit mental.

    I read somwhere that Hennessey are aiming at the Veyron. They said they are doing their own supercar last year but haven`t heard nothing about it since that article I read...

    Hennessey's are Drag Queens only, to take on the Veyron you got to do more than just go fast in a straight line.

    They will probably make it based off the Viper, or a new Viper TT...

    anyways if they CCXR, Veyron and Aero TT race, the Veyron would win, its very stable at high speeds, the CCXR Edition would lose due because it goes from 0-60 in only 3.1 secs, which is equal to/close to the McLaren F1/Ferrari Enzo and according to Top Gear if a McLaren F1 is going 120MPH and the Veyron races it, the Veyron would beat it to 200MPH, probably the same with the CCXR Edition.

    Yeah but a McLaren F1 only needs 750bhp to equal the Veyron. Imagine if someone gave an F1 1000bhp or even 1200bhp, the car would easily take back it's title.
