S97 | Bugatti Veyron 16.4 '05

Bugatti Veyron 164

0-60: 2.4 -> 2.6
0-100: ~4.75 -> 5.5
MRA: 101.85 -> 89.66
Weight: 1888 -> 2028
HP: 987 -> 1001

Also proposing a handling nerf; it pulled 0.94g on the skidpad, while the Super Sport pulled 0.99 - the handling difference should be more than 1.

    Tbh these heavy Bugattis should get a heavy handling nerf. The veyrons should have no more than 87 handling and Chiron, should be 88 stock. These current handling ingame is just completely absurd.

    Acceleration changes noted, but using better figures from Car & Driver

    To address the handling submission, the size of the testing skid pad must be taken into account.  That Road & Track article pulled a 0.94g score on a 200' skid pad.  The Car & Driver article pulled 1.00g on a 300' skid pad.  For now, we're going to hold off on suggesting a handling change until all Bugatti Veyrons can be addressed at one time.

    I read the articles and I found out that:
    - 0-60 is 2,5s tested
    - 0-100 is 4,9s not explicit
    "Analogies, here, are often futile, but in the time it takes a thundering Audi S8 to attain 60 mph, the Veyron will be going 100."
    In the same article.

    "Audi's claim of 4.9 seconds to 60"
    In another article.

    So, no mentions on 2,6s and 5,5s.

    Did I missed something?

    0-60 of 2.6s is from the Road & Track article linked above.  2.5s is from the Car & Driver article I linked.
    0-100 of 5.5s is from the Road & Track article linked above.  5.3s is from the Car & Driver article I linked.
    4.9 was Audi's claim (and just a mentioned comparison), but not what the article achieved, so it is irrelevant.

    by all veyrons im guess the 3 in game. but imo as these are million dollar+ cars especially the veyron ss, that its going to be really hard to find tests. and as for the chirons that just going to be even more difficult to find. but the 2000 kg chiron having the same handling as some track focused cars like the f1 lm and the ariel atom is..... sus

    Imma disagree on that. The veyrons have a pretty good handling in real life too as stated in the car & driver article already. 
    The chirons however take that to a whole new level. They aren’t just dummy thicc boats with loads of hp. They are top notch engineering masterpieces including their chassis. You can search for videos on youtube where even the standard chiron absolutely kicks butt on race tracks, both handling and acceleration-wise. 
    Especially compared to the dinosaur old chassis of the f1, the chiron is gonna handle much better on a racetrack. Just take a look at body-roll and stuff like that. Old chassis are way behind, even on cars that were absolute top notch back then. 
    The ariel is too light to have the same mechanical grip as the chiron in higher speed corners and thus it is quite realistic that the chiron has a comparable handling score. The ariel wont produce the necessary downforce either to make up for that as it is not really an aerodynamically optimised car.
