Naturally the F1 is at the top, imagine a Veyron would beat it.

Much as I appreciate the F1 as an impressive machine of incredible speed it's not in the same class as the Veyron, no production car is.

The F1 could start from a stand still and reach 130mph at which point the Veyron would start off and still be first to 200mph, such is the kind of acceleration IT is capable of.

This is part down to the power at it's disposal but also part down to the gearbox and the awd system which made putting that power to the surface all the easier.

There's actually a lot of information saying that those numbers are not really true.

McLaren 0-200 ~ 28 secs
McLaren 0-130 ~ 10 secs
Bugatti 0- 200 ~ 22 secs

28 - 10 does not equal 22.

And not only that, but the F1 was a marvel not only in a straight line. No other car has run in a GT class at Le Mans and won in its first attempt. The McLaren was an all out true sports car. Not a drag racer.
