actually the viper wasn’t faster than the veyron over-all just in the race to 0-200mph the viper was firstly u need to get ur bogus facts strait kid 2ndly the veyron was the quickest one to 0-60 and 0-100 and the 1/4mile so out of best 3 of 4 the veyron won 3 of those contests te viper only won 1 so over all the veyron is still the best the veyron jus has a slightly quicker time to 200mph than the veyron an in a actual race they wudn’t have room to even go that fast so.....VEYRON is the real winner not the viper....tell it how it is and NOT how u want it to sound kid
