    it won't do 270 mph. it theoretically would but its limited to 225 - but that's based on gearing and revs, not on actual power. still, mighty impressive

    I think the interesting thing about the Veyron isn't that it'll do silly speed - it's just that it'll do it all day every day reliably. That's why it's an engineering marvel and why so much R&D cost was incurred.
    I love TVRs but I wouldn't rely on one getting me to work every day

    It won't be as well built or reliable as a veyron i dont think.

    Peak torque is a bit too high up the rev range too.

    Not sure on the looks. Maybe its a grower?

    tbh, on a car like that, does peak torque really matter an iota? i mean.. it'll shift you so damn quick all the way thru - 2-5,000 rpm in most gears will only be a couple of seconds

    might not be as good on looks as a veyron, but no supercars are bought on reliability (clue, they're not nearly as good as a focus because they're so bespoke). neither car will go to someone who's not got a massive garage - i think it'll sell pretty well

    That's a heck of a rear overhang. Wouldn't like to try parallel parking in one of them

    What?
    530 lb ft at 3000 RPM not enough for you?

    The other thing about the veyron is that its rock stable at those high speeds, well until you decide to go 250 on your way to the shops and need to lower the spoiler. The bristol doesnt apear to have any spoiler

    It has 900 at 3500 rpm, should be plenty, just rev it a bit.


    Also... "60 mph in first gear." Who needs an automatic for town driving when you can just drive everywhere in first!
