    Theres an easier and much cheaper solution, get a tesla p100 ! Quicker than the stupidly expensive Veyron anyway.

    There is an easier and much cheaper solution, keep your old car, not as quick as a Tesla, except for long journeys... You wont stop to charge it up... :)

    I believe the wheels have to be shipped to Michelin in France, for a tyre change.

    Yes but a Tesla is a Tesla and a Veyron is a Veyron

    People buy what they can afford. Most people cannot afford a Tesla! Quicker does not mean better.

    Did you not buy two sets of wheels with your Veyron? I just do ‘em turn and turn about. ;)

    The Veyron is a triumph of engineering the Tesla is a good washing machine with a great electric motor.

    If it was just about going fast then buy an ariel atom, a motorbike or jump off a cliff with a groundsheet.

    No, that’s the face first/ arms n legs out position.

    Headfirst with arms tucked in, the drag reduces and the record is...373.6mph.

    I thought Baumgartner went a lttle quicker. Admittedly he started quite high.

    That 374 is the record for speed skydiving. Baumgartner made 834mph but did it from 128k’...
