Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson is under attack for admitting he once drove over 300 km/hr on a public road.
Is anyone surprised? It is classic Clarkson.
He was driving a Bugatti Veyron, which has a top speed of 407 km/hr. That is one third of supersonic speed!
Sadly the fuel tank only lasts 12 minutes at that speed, but on the plus side you can travel 80 km in those 12 minutes! This is not a bad thing though as after 15 minutes the tyres have melted!
The acceleration is very nice – reaches 100 km/hr in 2.5 seconds which is equal to 1.2G. And it can brake at 1.3G. It can go from 400 km/hr to a stop in under 10 seconds.
I wonder how much one costs to buy?
