Video: Bugatti Veyron VS Nissan GT-R

A Bugatti Veyron vs. Nissan GT-R, in my eyes at least, this isn't much of a competition for the Veyron, think about it for a minute. The Bugatti Veyron has a Quad-turbocharged DOHC 64-valve W16, 1001 HP, four wheel drive, a top speed of over 253 mph and 0-99 mph in 5.5 seconds. Now compare that to a Nissan GT-R that has a twin-turbo V6 engine, 480 HP, four wheel drive, a top speed of over 193 mph and 0-60 mph on average of 3.5 second.

With that said, a few things, first I like seeing comparations between vehicles, I mean yeah most vehicles are for taking a person from point A to B, however a vehicle says a lot about the owner and a sports car or a supercar is alot more to own and a whole lot more then just getting from A to B, its getting there is style, making a point and how fast you got there.

Second, I have to say that I have a poster of the Nissan GT-R handing in my bedroom (yes I'm single, if I were married, it would be in a rec room or office) and third, even after all of the numbers, I would still buy a Nissan GT-R for around $80,000 over a Veyron is which goes for something over $1.5 million dollars.

And another view of the action on the racetrack from inside the cars.

What do you think?
