Very interesting comparison here of the 2010 Bugatti Veyron against the 1992 Bugatti EB 110 SS.
The genteelly muted engine rumble behind me instantly erupted into a bellowing B-movie Tyrannosaurus Rex and the power spike slammed the seat against my back so hard I honestly thought the rear end of the car had exploded. My foot couldn’t have came off that accelerator any faster if the pedal was wired up to a wall socket, and I shrieked out loud like a little girl.
Fast? Oh Lordie yes, it’s fast, two-and-a-bit genuine seconds to sixty, 250 certified mph fast, and I’m sure anyone who can read knows that by now. The interesting thing, though, is it’s a different kind of fast, and in more ways than the Jekyll and Hyde act. The difference is obvious merely from the car’s appearance; it’s more obvious still after a back-to-back drive in the last Bugatti to claim the “Fastest” title, the late, great EB110.
