No. Damned impressive though.

Load the other contenders with additional weight to match the Veyron's and then let's try again.......

Huh, TG wasn't at 7.30 on Sunday. I was right peeved! Has it moved time slots?

It won't screen here for approx 6 months. Better off getting the torrents...

Latest eps streamed on www.watchtopgear.net

BUT be warned you have to use their Zango player thingy which fills your Windows programs with all sorts of useless crap.

This site is free and uses straightforward flash.

Amazing how slow it looked around the track, mostly because it was so composed.  Only what, half a second separates the fastest 4 or 5 cars on the board so when you combine that result with the way it blitzed the Zonda in a straight line it's fairly obvious which car would be the quickest point to point on the road.

The airbrake is pretty amazing to watch in action.  Once again Aerospace Technology meets Automotive.

Or you could use torrents to download it. Or even better, get a rapidshare account for direct downloads.

True - it looked slow because it was so composed.

True - it looked slow because it was so heavy.

But it was still pretty damn quick!

And that airbrake is very cool.
