Two incredible machines are being driven the way they were meant to be driven

It’s not uncommon to feast your eyes on some rare exotic vehicles when on the streets of London. The YouTube channel “TheTFJJ” is certainly making the most of it, as we see regular weekly content of expensive, rare, and exotic cars being enjoyed. Not only that, a lot of the footage is taken from inside of the cars. This video in particular shows two very expensive and rare cars, each of them very fast for their time, being enjoyed on public roads.

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and Ferrari 250 GTO have been caught doing what they are meant to do. The video does not have any narration or explanations about the cars. It’s simply two very expensive cars going at each other.

Of course, there is a big difference in performance. The classic Ferrari 250 GTO has a 3.0-liter high-revving naturally-aspirated V-12 producing around 300 horsepower (221 kW) and 217 pound-feet (294 Nm), although some sources claim a torque figure of 246 pound-feet (333 Nm). Regardless, this allows the Italian classic to hit 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 5.4 seconds on its way to 174 mph (280 km/h).

Although impressive for 1962, the 250 GTO cannot match the sheer power of the Veyron’s 8.0-liter quad-turbo W-16 engine, producing 1,183 horsepower (882 kW) and 1,106 pound-feet (1,500 Nm). Combined with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and all-wheel-drive, the Veyron manages a 2.5-second run to 60 mph (97 km/h) on its way to 255 mph (410 km/h).

The Bugatti’s massive W-16 doesn’t even need to try to keep up with the Ferrari. Because of this, we mostly hear the glorious soundtrack of the Italian V-12, while the massive 8.0-liter unit is mostly quiet. Nevertheless, the two cars put on a good show. One of the 36 Ferrari 250 GTO changed owners a couple of years ago, for the “modest” sum of $70 million. Although the Veyron is not as expensive, it still cost a staggering $2.2 million when new. With this in mind, the owners are to be commended for being brave enough to drive some of the most exclusive and expensive vehicles, currently out there.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
