James on thrashing the Veyron SS
You saw it on TV - now read Captain Slow's diary of his big day

I saw it, briefly, about a quarter of a mile from that point under the gantry where I had to either lift-off, or take-off when I got to the banking; for a few seconds before unbending electronic intervention trimmed the Bugatti SuperSport to its published top speed of 415kph. Four-one-seven. Four hundred and seventeen kilometres per hour; 259.11mph. This, then, and by a very hard-won 2.99mph, is the fastest production car in the world.
And it's Mister Captain Slow to you.
