I bet you didn’t think that BMW had anything in its arsenal that could possibly take on Bugatti’s ultimate road hammer, the Veyron. Some think that BMW couldn’t possibly build a four-wheeled machine with the same power, speed and presence as the Veyron and truth be told, those people would be right. What you need to realize is that the little fellas over in strudel-land have been hard at work over the last few years perfecting a machine that has the ability to put just about every road going machine to shame. It puts out a mere 190 hp, weighs in at 455-lbs and has a top speed of 191 mph and oh yeah, it only has two wheels. The BMW S1000 RR is a super bike in every sense of the word and if I had the money I can almost guarantee that there would be one in my driveway right now.
Next up is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, a car that already has legendary status thanks to its 1,001 hp (nope, that’s not a misprint) and 253 mph top speed. Sure it’s a hairy chested beast, but it’s also more suited to running in a straight line on the autobahn, not tight twisty back roads like the BMW S1000 RR. Plus with a price difference of $1,285,705 (not a misprint either), the Veyron is out of the reach of most people.
Recently Edmunds Inside Line pitted these two titans of speed against each other to see who would be crowned King Schwiing. They ran all sorts of fun-filled tests under a variety of conditions to find out which vehicle would seriously tickle the pickle. Now I could tell you who won OR you could head on over to Inside Line to find out for yourself. Actually, do that cause’ if I tell you they’re going to get all pissed at me, then Kurt and I would have to do some comparison test with a skateboard and tricycle or something since we have no money. Seriously, it’s a good read so go check it out.
