    Bit overkill isnt it?

    Although, if the Top Gear video is true, then its easy to get away from it, just go around corner after corner at less than 30km/h and he will spin out from the lack of grip on the rears :p

    Impressive nonetheless

    is it possible to give a legnum that kind of power to weight ratio???? if you stripped out a legnum, how much do you think it would weigh??

    probably only loose 2-300kg MAX.... so you'd need about 1500hp for the same power to weight ratio :p

    I think you'll find it's 10 heat exchangers :)

    There's a REASON a Veyron is so expensive - its not just that it has massive power, its that it has massive power and you can open the throttle up and KEEP IT THERE until you run the tank dry (by which stage I REALLY hope your foot is off the accellerator pedal!!). Most high-boost turbos can only sustain a fully open throttle for around 60 seconds max before Very Bad Things start happening, which is usually more than enough time to hit max speed and come off the floor anyway.

    You can pretty much forget about insane power with any real driveability without moving the engine to the rear. Having said that, stopping just short of insane can still be a hell of a lot of engine! :D
