The Bugatti Veyron and Top Gear. Talk about traditions. The Veyron may not be the most sophisticated supercar out there today but it’s still the fastest on a straight line. The Veyron is an amazing achievement and left us so many good Top Gear memories. It is after all THE car that propelled Captain Slow to 253 miles per hour!
A look back at Top Gear’s Veyron moments:
The Bugatti Veyron Race – Jeremy Clarkson vs Richard Hammond and James May
This is, in our humble Top Gear fan opinion, one of the greatest Top Gear challenges ever. For this challenge, Jeremy Clarkson challenges James May and Richard Hammond to a cross-continent race using the fastest car in the world: the Bugatti Veyron. Can he beat May and Hammond, who are racing him back to England… in a aeroplane?
Top Gear : Bugatti Veyron vs Euro Fighter
The Bugatti Veyron again takes on a plane. But this time a plane that can give the Veyron a run for its money: the RAF Euro Fighter Typhoon. Who will win the horizontal vs vertical 2 mile race? The burden on Richard’s little shoulders is huge. This time the Bugatti’s honour is really at stake.
