I love the P1
But this equation is horribly wrong
Veyron is better in every way except cornering ability.

It had better be quicker than an approximately 10yr old car at the time the P1 debuted.
Plus most with electrical power will be quicker.

Veyron is still a mega deal for a 2005 car.

Either one will be game over..........until Agera R steps in.....

I, for one, don't consider a rolling start any form of measure since there are so many variables, the simplest being that both cars have roughly the same amount of HP but the Veyron is significantly heavier than the P1.

Take that rolling start on a mile long stretch or run a 1/4 mile from standstill... Veyron will win every time.

Besides, I like to look and luxury of a Veyron over a P1.
