I've seen @ViMurr very angry about the suspiciously high handling rating of some Bugattis, so I'm giving him a hand with this:

Lap times by The Stig on Top Gear's test track (which is a mixture of tight corners and "fair" straights):

The cars on that list that are in game, in the same order as the list, to compare:

    Autocar dry-handling test track times:

    Thermal Club Raceway times:

    Both tracks have laps of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport against others cars in game, including some of the above mentioned for comparison.

    I have nothing against the idea, however I will point out that, that is the old lotus test track and is skewed heavily toward smaller tossable cars far more than insanely high powered ones. 4 of the top 10 seem to fit the smaller car demographic. If anything I'm shocked the Veyron can stay ahead of the Gumpert Apollo and Ascari A10

    I definitely appreciate the info you listed having said that, it is very interesting.

    Very interesting, sorry @juan_cruz_96 but i didnt get the notification for the tag, anyway, It's crazy to see some cars like the apollo beaten by the bugatti. I can say that the high power of bugattis can balance the corner performance, so still think 2-3 grip points should be taken off from certain bugattis.

    Does anyone know peak velocity at the top gear test track?
