Road & Track is an American car magazine and quite well known around the world. Recently, they made a great test of three amazing cars! Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Nissan GTR and Porsche 911 Turbo S. All these cars are state of art engineering of automotive industry and present devastating performance.
Road & Track made a video to show the performance of these three cars. They calculated each of the cars’ acceleration performances. According to magazine, this measure is more appropriate than the maximum speed level. And I do agree with them, top speed is a bit utopic number for these cars. Especially, Veyron is capable of achieving more than 400kph, which is quite impossible to achieve on normal road condition.
The test shows that Bugatti is far beyond the other cars, but there is a mistake in this test. Road & Track did not measure these cars handling capabilities. People do not buy these cars to do drag races, they drive them in daily condition and handling is important as acceleration. If a car does not provide a proper handling, the acceleration becomes meaningless.
This test is exciting to watch but I cannot consider as a good performance measure. They should have done it like European magazines do it!
