Just like in boxing, a car race boils down to a number of things: speed, power, wits, and a desire to knock someone out...or in this case, leave them eating your dust.

Over time, we’ve seen some pretty good races involving exotic cars but in this video that was shot in a highway in Abu Dhabi, we found two supercars that have yet to come across each other. On one corner...err...lane we have the venerable Bugatti Veyron, a car that is a veteran of these types of racing and for the most part, has won a lot of them.

Continued after the jump.

On the other lane, we have the upstart Zenvo ST1, the Danish supercar that has been rolling a lot of heads lately for its sheer pace and crazy good looks.

So who takes the cake in this race? As the video will show you, both cars enjoyed a rolling start on the Abu Dhabi highway before pouncing on the accelerator. The result was another victory for the Veyron, who according to the commentary won by at least eight car lengths over the Zenvo ST1. It was a valiant effort by the Danish supercar but in the end, it still has a long way to go before it can go fender-to-fender with the Veyron.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

racing with a super car like bugatti and zenvo is an honor. also losing with a super car like bugatti is very acceptable and reasonable...

although the Zenvo has a power pack of 1,104Hp still it can’t out run the bugatti, bugatti’s 16Cylinder engine. pretty nasty ain’t it? and it has rated that i can sprint up to more than 253MPH comparing it to 223 Sprint of Zenvo. well it’s just like the Mustang super snake Vs the Gt-R Godzilla challenge.

well zenvo has no chance in winning on bugatti, bugatti was rated as the fastest car in the world. but if only zenvo was a brabus. of course it would be a tight competition and maybe bugatti will eat the brabus’s dust.
