Is the 599 faster yes... if i were the police and he were a suspect he would not have gotten away. Perhaps it was a self realitization (sp) that damn, i discounted my car way too much. To be able to hang to me meant he couldnt get more than about 50 yds away at any point. To me thats friggin awesome for a 70K car vs 300+.
"Stop and go" traffic...
In these situations, a Veyron wouldn't be able to shake a Civic.
Glad to see all the level headed responses above to these "M3 vs" whatever 600hp monster you want to insert in there.
Was waiting for the "Yeah, I beat a 599 too...", thankfully that didn't occur...
