Despite being a decade old now, a stock Bugatti Veyron 16.4 will still out-accelerate almost all cars you can throw at it. But not a Stage 3 Gallardo, which is sort of funny once you start to think about it.


It's important to remember that it was ten years ago when the VW Group made a car that despite being as heavy as a small planet could still reach 62mph in 2.42 seconds and exceed the 186mph mark after just 16.7. A clever dual-clutch gearbox, all-wheel drive traction, unbelievable horsepower and even more torque was their recipe, and our mind was instantly blown almost as much as the car's quad-turbo W16. The Germans redefined physics with the help of some French rubber.

Twin-turbo Gallardos are nothing new, but I have a strong feeling that we'll remember these cars for a long time. It's amazing to see what sort of power figures the smaller Lamborghini's platform can take over and over again, and when you take into account that the Gallardo has Audi's R&D under the metal, you end up with mid-engined supercar built by the VW Group with all-wheel drive and an already powerful engine skillfully turbocharged beyond warp 8.


At the end of the day, the lighter car with more power will win. Which means the Veyron is toast.

Maybe it would catch the tuner car somewhere above 250mph, but at that speed, the Veyron is also going to step out of its production car mascara and burn up just as much of itself as a heavily modified Lambo.

When the Stage 3 Huracan will be ready to throw its own dual-clutch gearbox into the soup, you better have a Veyron SuperSport.
