    This was posted before and the biggest load of bull! The BM is slower than the Bughatti through the gears, has less power, but do 462? I think not! To do that speed the car need to be aerodynamicaly designed like the Bughatti for example - a Shoprite trolley has more aerodynamics...

    Unfortunately Alan - no-one actually OWNING a BMW M8 has had the guts yet to run it openly and in public, against the Bugatti Veyron..... ;)
