But it still manages to weigh nearly 1,900 kg / 4,200 lbs, compared to 1,140 kg / 2,500 lb for the McLaren F1.

16 cylinders, 4 turbos, 10 radiators...something tells me that their weight
comparison to the McLaren F1 wasn't their concern.

It's awesome.

New series starts in Sept. The Veyron will be featured again. My gut is that I think they were able to obtain one to drive around the track. Bugatti would not let them track the car so they offered thirty pounds ($60) to any owner who would lend them their car lol.

I think they found someone.

For those of you who can't get it on TV, every episode is on www.finalgear.com

I agree with you that Top Gear is great, but I actually though the episode of the Veyron vs the plan was lame. It was just too contrived and they never really pushed the Veyron.

This is the special one hour Veyron episode is it? I love this little rocket, engineering awesomeness.

..and yeah Top Gear is awesome, even though they like to bash BMWa
