UPDATE: We got the video now, no need to wait for Sunday!
TopGear is at it again, they have put the Bugatti Veyron in a race against a Jet fighter. The result can be seen on Sunday at TopGear.
And races don’t come much bigger than this one: the Bugatti Veyron against the RAF’s new Eurofighter Typhoon jet.
See, when Jeremy raced Richard and James across Europe – him in a Veyron and the other two in a washing-machine-with-a- propellor-on-the-front – a few of the boys from the RAF got a bit upset that it wasn’t a fair fight.
They had a point, in fairness – the finest piece of automotive engineering in history versus a clattery Cessna 182 was only ever going to end one way.
So the RAF offered up their base for a proper race: a two-mile sprint between the Veyron and a jet fighter.
That’s a mile to the end of the runway and back for the Veyron, while the jet plane – being able to fly and all – had to go a mile straight up in the air and then, well, a mile straight back down again.
A fair fight? Of course not. A close race? You’ll just have to wait until Sunday to find out.
