You know what's faster on a runway than a LaFerrari or even a Bugatti Veyron? A bunch of tuned 911s. But there's one surprising vehicle just as fast as both the Veyron and the LaFerrari and it's an SUV.

Bruntingthorpe's runway is just under 2 miles long, so while a LaFerrari's top speed is supposed to be somewhere above 217 mph, it can only reach 207 there, just like a stock Bugatti Veyron.


What's more interesting to see is what tuner cars can do under the same conditions. The fastest at VMax200's evoMax event was a 996 turbo bored to 4.1 liters, but that crazy Nissan Qashqai with the GT-R drivetrain beats a Lamborghini Aventador matching both the Ferrari and Bugatti. A 720 hp Ford Mirage GT also happens to be slower than a Ferrari F12.

My conclusion is that what we need is a twin-turbo F12. Who's with me?
