The mighty Veyron is challenged by a Nissan Skyline

And, from beginning to end, the Nissan has it all in the bag. I know!

What you have to remember about the Veyron is that it is a machine built on a budget of 5 million euros per car to do one thing only, go higher than anything that has gone before. This is not designed for a drag over 1/4 mile, even 1 mile, against a tuned beast. I wont make excuses for it, but you cant exactly fill that tank with NOS and let is go, it is a precision racer. So surprising as it may seem to be, its really not all that surprising at all
