bugatti-veyron-vs-mclaren-f1-560

1990’s technology up against the 2000’s… which one will prevail… the 1001hp Bugatti Veyron or the 627hp McLaren F1 which was introduced in 1992? These Titans go head-to-head in a one mile drag race.

The Stig straps himself in the McLaren F1 powered by a BMW V12 and Hammond gets a grip on the big monster of-a-car, Bugatti Veyron. I don’t know about you but all of my bets are on the Bugatti. Watch the Top Gear video and see who takes home the gold.
