Can the Stig control the Veryon around the test track?
I'm at work and can't see the video, just thought it was worth an fyi.

not bad its only the 4th fastest
11-24-2008, 04:43 PM
1.18 around the track 4th fastest on thier board
i believe the Stig was a bit cautious on that lap.[thumbd]
i remember when they had to put a wing on the koenneseg just so stig would be able to turn.

That rear wing being activated as a high speed brake is soooo cool!

there is also an article on autoblog today where they head to head compared a gt-r and a gt2!!! 18pgs of awesomeness!!!
IMO, I'm glad it didn't get the top spot, not a veryon fan.

I have never seen The Stig work so hard in his life, he looked like he was nervous!
None the less well done STIGGY!!!

I'd be nervous too with 1.1 Million Euros riding on my every move. He's a fantastic driver, though.
My all-time favourite Top Gear vid is the Carrera GT review (oh, the exhaust note)

I'm not surprised it wasn't on top. I knew it would be high but I didn't think it would be on top. It may be an automotive masterpiece but it's a 4000lb+ car and more of a GT car than a track car.

I wasn't surprised with the time. Two things were going against it.
1. As previously stated, I think the Stig may have been driving at only say 99.5% on this one. Even a very experienced driver could be a bit intimidated by a 1.3 MILLION DOLLAR responsibility.
2. This car was meant to be a fast long distance tourer, not a track car. The weight of the dang thing prevents it from getting all it could out of the 1,000hp.
I need that air brake on my svt so bad. didbt think ti would be the fastest, that thing is massive by all accounts.
