Bugatti Veyron vs Lamborghini Aventador vs Lexus LFA vs McLaren MP4-12C [video]

The ultimate supercar show down?

When you think of the most definitive supercars of the past five years, you'll probably find yourself coming up with a list that includes the Lamborghini Aventador, Lexus LFA, McLaren MP4-12C and Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. Thankfully, Motor Trend also came up with that list for their latest Head 2 Head episode which pits the cars against each in a classic drag race.

While it's no secret that the Veyron is the most powerful, will the supercar's weight and all-wheel drive system bog it down? Will the Aventador's and MP4-12C's carbon fiber monocoque prove ‘strength through lightness' is the best way to win?

We won't ruin the surprise, so place your bets and enjoy.

Pointless drag race, but you can't choose which supercar or hypercar is good, all are simply amazing & beautifully made to be fast & I love all of them & choosing them could be quite difficult.

This is a public service announcement to all of those who love cars. The 2013 BMW M5 will be offered with a manual transmission as an option. The configurator is now live at the BMW USA website. Get your wallets primed and ready. That is all. As for the article. I'd have the Lexus LFA. Once you have a sub 4.0 200mph+ car, all that matters is desirability. The LFA has that in spades.

Well, kudos to Lexus, they've made a great supercar and LFA is the proof that they can (drag race means nothing), it looks great and it's a less poser car than this other fancy cars.

Of course the LFA lost because it has a small NA engine with the lowest torque. if it has 50 Nm and 30 hp more it could win. But still it is a great super car.

Just watched. Why was the Veyron's spoiler out, if they wanted it to go fast?

Depends on the type of track. Veyron is one of the fastest cars around the Top Gear track, not far behind the Mclaren and Lamborghini. And if you consider the super sport version, it Is within half a second of those two. Motortrend should have skipped the Lexus and the Mclaren and included the 2 cars that come closest to the Veyron in 0 to 60: GT-R and 911 Turbo, 2.8 and 2.6 respectively (Veyron in 2.5).

If I were to buy one of these it would be the Lambo or the McLaren. They're all great supercars whose full power I would never use so I would go with the most legendary ones. Bugatti was a one shot never will again and Lexus, well despite its greatness it is too Japanese.

Now lets see them round a track, that's where the McLaren and Lexus will show their true colours.

Well I knew the LFA would loose, It's already proven that the R35GTR can destroy it on the Drag strip. And I was really surprised that the Aventador was a close second, As much as I love lamborghini I expected the Bugatti to destroy it on the Strip. Now lets put Koensigg, Pagani and Bugatti against each other.

The two VW's win. We disguise them as Italian and French to keep the International customers happy. We call all the engineering and design shots though and reap the profits.
