Veyron v. EuroFighter
Top Gear producers know how to create interesting TV. In this clip The Hamster races a fighter jet. The Bugatti Veyron drags in a mile (on the ground), then turns and reruns the course. Meanwhile the jet takes off from a standing start zooms to a mile above the ground then turns and heads for the ground, levels off then crosses the start finish. Who wins? You'll have to watch to find out.
It's quite bombastic. But I enjoyed it. A Thoughtspurs exclusive! Actually, scratch that…it is one of the top 10 viral videos of the day. the graph, ironically, mimic the vertical performance of the Eurojet. But will its descent be as rapid.
In a cynical footnote it's interesting to sell arms manufacturers finding interesting, contemporary ways to sell their weapons. The chequered flag was even replaced by a Union Jack (the branding, make my logo bigger, bit…). What Arab sheik doesn't watch Top Gear?
