What's most impressive is the reaction time of the GTR driver.

That looked easy. Impressive 60' time for a 4000 lb car.

I've never seen a Bugatti Veyron except in pictures, I always imagine them cars being very big / huge in size. But after viewing the video it doesn't appear that its that big compared to the other car in the far lane. Very cool video anyways, good to see someone's not afraid to run the car on the track!

They are actually remarkably small. One wonders how the hell they weigh 4500 pounds when you see one. I also find them every bit as ugly in person as in pictures haha.

I wouldn't of guessed that the car would have weighed 4500 pounds, it looks even smaller than the GTR. I agree that the car is very ugly, I guess looks doesn't matter if you have that kinda of money to throw around.

All I've ever seen of the car was in pictures. I've always thought the car was ugly and it looked very huge in size. Now after seeing the video and seeing how much smaller it is I want to see one in person. But they are still ugly tho!

Well the GTR is huge, so I wouldn't use that as a great comparison:



But yeah, the Veyron is very compact. It's wide, but short and stubby. It's dimensions are very very close to a Gen III in all regards. It is within a 10th on all dimensions except for width, which is 3 inches wider. It just weighs ~40-50% more.
