Ferrari LaFerrari Vs. Bugatti Veyron In A Drag Race: Video
Back in January, a video began circulating from the Vmax200 EVOmax event showing a Bugatti Veyron and a LaFerrari going head-to-head in a long-distance drag race held on a two-mile runway in London. From the video footage, the lighter hybrid Ferrari beat the all-engine Bugatti. Nobody likes losing in a race, but I have to imagine that the sting of defeat has to be even worse when you’re piloting the fastest car on the planet. Now it’s time for a rematch.
Held at Vmax200 Stealth, this race pits the same Bugatti against a new LaFerrari challenger, and supercar chaser extraordinaire Schmee150 was there to capture the multimillion dollar race on video. This time around, the more powerful Veyron easily beats the Ferrari hitting a top speed of 214 mph versus 206 mph, but weather likely played a key role. The video description says that the track was damp during this run, which is evident by the Ferrari struggling to get traction off the line giving the all-wheel-drive Bugatti the advantage.
As the track dried up, Schmee says that the Veyron later hit a top speed of 224 mph. Regardless of who wins, it never gets old watching two of the most expensive and powerful production cars on the planet going all-out.
