The Veyron is AWD though, so my money is still on it off the line and through a 1/4 mile.

However I don't think the comparison is fair. The Veyron isn't a track car. The goal of Bugatti was to make the highest horsepower super car, that could be drive DAILY, with all the amenities one would expect at that price tag. Hence the high curb weight.

If you took the Veyron's engine and drive-train, and put it in a stripped out body without all that luxury stuff...*whistles* Oh yeah...just oh ya.

Great point! Forgot about the AWD.

Check out the twin turbo Gallardo videos on youtube for that. I haven't had a boner like that over a car since high school.
