Ultimate Car vs. Ultimate Bike: Veyron against BMW S 1000 RR

Following up on Motor Trend’s recent Ferrari vs. Ducati article, Inside Line just pitted the world’s fastest car against the world’s fastest bike…at least at the time of writing. So perhaps Bugatti’s own Veyron SS and a Japanese bike or two have grabbed these titles away from the contenders, but it’s still an awfully impressive pair. While on paper the big numbers aren’t really close, the article takes you on a journey that closes the real-world gap between them for you:

First a few numbers.

2010 Bugatti Veyron 16.4: 1,001 horsepower, 253 mph.

2010 BMW S 1000 RR: 190 hp, 191 mph.

Oh, and then there are the price tags: $1.3 million for the Bugatti, a mere $14,295 for the BMW.

But at this moment, we’re not worried about the numbers. All we can think about is the French supercar sitting behind us, buzzing like an impertinent bluebottle fly in the mirrors of the 2010 BMW S 1000 RR. And now it behooves us to unleash the BMW’s inner demon and show this, this insect of a 2010 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 the true, grand order of nature.

That bikes are faster than cars.
