You’re portraying a “David and Goliath” scenario, which is really portraying two very distinctively different vehicles.

My response was accurate. While you have chosen your favourite, it is not from an actual test drive, it’s from your reading and individual passion of what “David” has built within the limitations of a smaller manufacturer compared to “Goliath” with big bucks and support of the larger manufacturer.

Doing something “yourself” doesn’t automatically make it better. The new corvette stingray designed a better DSG for the car; so therefore it’s better than other manufacturers? It is it just better for their applications.

With most auto groups, the proof is in endurance racing. Here it’s just idealistic literature of things you will never see race in competition or even drive. So wether it’s Road and Track or a periodical; it’s still magazine racing.
Exactly. I'm not discounting their ability to create new solutions at a company with less resources but those alone do not make it the better vehicle.

But.... that's totally not the discussion here.....

Its about innovation. And in that aspect Koenigsegg does more than Bugatti
Buying tech from another company is not the same as coming up with it yourself.

I was talking about the companies and how they go about their business. There is no test drive needed to form an opinion on that.

You're changing the subject. The discussion was about the amount of innovations both companies do/make/come up with.
What makes something a 'better' car is subjective. For all I care someone might think red cars with 5 doors are better.
You think a soft leather interior and 4wd is better.
