Unlikely Bedfellows: Bugatti Veyron vs Nissan GT-R (VIDEO)
The Nissan GT-R is an amazing machine any way you look at it. After all, this is a car that can hold its own against the venerable Ferrari F430 Scuderia. With 480 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque it can reach 60 mph from a standstill in 3.2 seconds and tops out just shy of 200 mph. This all sounds really impressive until you put it side-by-side with the Bugatti Veyron. This monster costs 18 times more money, twice the horsepower and double the number of turbochargers. But in the real world, what does all of this really mean?
Evo Magazine took the opportunity to put these two unlikely bedfellows on the same track and let them go head to head. The result, while not so surprising, is nonetheless amazing to watch. We all know that the Bugatti Veyron is lightning fast, but how fast is it really when pitted against another automotive rockstar like the Nissan GTR? Check out the video after the jump.
Add some modifications to the GTR, and then see how it goes. The Bugatti does low 140’s in the quarter. GT-R’s with bolt on mods have done 130-134 mph so far. Getting in the ballpark. Would give a Veyron a run for its money.
