I'm not sure which year Yamaha R1 it is, but lets assume it's the latest one MY2007. So it's the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, Porsche Carrera GT, and the Yamaha R1 vs the public road. Here are the stats for each of the vehicles in the video:

After a big snow fall, I always want to take out the car to an empty parking lot to do some drifting. Well Nick Heidfeld did us one better!

36 Mercedes Benz E320 with diesel engines trekked from Paris to Beijing. It was a based on a 1907 transcontinental rally but in reverse. The winner of the rally completed it only using around 34mpg of diesel fuel!

James May, from Top Gear, tests a standard production Bugatti Veyron with 1001 hp to confirm manufacturers top speed claim of 253 mph. The test was done a VW's secret test track named Ehra-Lessien. You can see it here.
This car is amazing, I just wish they would enter it in the 24 hours of LeMans. It's where true supercars are tested.
