Boys , the Veyron is pretty neat but if Nissan would buy a car with those shapes, sure as hell it wouldnt be bought alot... For that kinda money they could easely built a nice car ! Same with the GT It's not that they are super exclusive and expensive that they are also beautiful
M3 is much hotter than those!!

Wow, those are some very sick rides.

But I have to say that I absolutely love how the M3 holds its own out there on the track. It blows my mind to think that I own a car that is versatile enough to be my daily driver that can run with the best of them. Good stuff.

Everyone will know once the video makes it to you tube. There aren't too many Bugatti's around.

The CGT did very well. The feedback from the instructor and driver was that it was definitely the fastest around the track with the best brakes but was nowhere as easy to drive fast as the Ferrari. Everyone commented that the Ferrari was the most amazing and the most surprising around the track. The CGT felt and sounded more of a race car versus the Ferrari and was more rewarding to drive fast yet took much more skill to pull it off. The Veyron was totally out of it's element.

I wouldn't say the Veyron was built for track work in the way the other two are, but God knows I would make a ton of space in the shed for one

I'd love to see actual on the track video of the three

If I had to pick one of the three....sure the Veyron is the king....even if its too heavy for the track...but I would get the CGT......as much as I love the 599....the CGT is just sex on wheels!!

There was a guy there video taping the whole thing. I mentioned to him he needs to post it up on YouTube....hopefully he will.

Another thing....the CGT and Ferrari did some drag races during the lunch break on the back stretch of the track while the Veyron was sitting on the sidelines due to overheating. Pretty close race at first but then the CGT would slowly pull away.

CGT is a very difficult car to drive on the track, reflexes need to be extremely quick to control that car. Hell it's hard to drive on the street aggressively

great line-up

but the Veyron is NOT a track car.. it is a high-speed touring car built for comfort.. not for track use.. the components are not meant to handle constant fluctuations of braking, accelerating, cornering.. thats what the CGT and 599GTB are meant to do

though i absolutely adore the Veyron.. i would be happy with an F430 Scuderia.. which trumps the Veyron in sound and i dare say.. fun factor.. the veyron doesn't give you that sense of speed or sensation

my cousin rode in a veyron on the highway in dubai.. his response was this.. "you simply go into blurred vision when accelerating on an open highway.. the world passes you by so fast and the fact you barely have a sense of the speed makes it even more frightening"

damn thats crazy!

+1 on the Scuderia, but i would drive that car at least every weekend, i hate people who buy ferraris and keep them in a garage with maybe 2 or 3 days of use a year.
