While they’re becoming more and more commonplace, we can’t imagine a day where we’ll ever get bored of supercar and superbike races.
While pitting a high-performance car against a class-leading sports bike has absolutely no relevance for most consumers, such tests do perfectly highlight just how fast the world’s leading performance machines can be.
In the latest supercar vs superbike test, we get the opportunity to see if a BMW S1000R is able to keep up with the might of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the world’s fastest production convertible.
Beneath the skin, the Vitesse utilises a quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16 engine delivering 1200 hp, enough to propel it to an insane 254.04 mph with the roof down! By comparison, the S1000R has a 999 cc inline-four engine delivering 193 hp at a buzzing 13,500 rpm and 83 lb-ft of torque at 9750 rpm. Of course, the fact that the bike only weighs 183 kg dry means it has a power-to-weight ratio far beyond the Veyron Vitesse’s.
So who will win out of two high-speed rolling drag races? Well you’ll have to watch to find out!
