Showing your age, and indeed a great chase. Was a huge Mopar fan in '68 and found myself rooting for the bad guys. LOL

My favorite chases (not races) are the 3 Gone in Sixty Seconds (1,incomplete 2, and remake)

Also isn't that car suppose to get up to 250MPH in less than a mile? Should of had a McLaren. :0

Not a big fan of the body lines of the car, but still, what a car. I mean, come on, a W16 engine? WOW

here.. this video is a little more interesting :P

YouTube - Abu Dhabi - Drag race McLaren F1 vs Bugatti Veyron World Fastest Car

i'd still take the mclaren over the bugatti..

no turbos, 12cyl, and is one of the most badass cars in the entire world. also only rwd, no electronic tcs, stb, or abs. just raw car.

the bugatti has 16c, 4 turbos, awd.. and can do that. it'* impressive but the mclaren still catches my eye better.

the bugatti imo is an engineering showcase. quite an amazing car but just doesn't do it for me as well as the ML F1 in the end.

McLaren has a nice gold plated engine too.

I want to see this in a drag race.

Ya, me thinks it was a Ford conspiracy. They prolly paid for all the cars for the scripting to show the Mustang as "Boss".
