But no land vehicle decelerates and turns comparably!
Not really, only the veyron comes close, and that's due to awd. And in 0-60 times, a tenth is a huuuuge difference.
Well, there is the Tesla at 2.5 seconds, but it only costs $120,000 vs $1,900,000 for the Veyron, so maybe it doesn't count.
787S, if you continue through the thread, you'll see why a real quick 0-100 time - is not really an F1 forte..
- not least for the actual 0-100 performance - being utilized only once per race.
& re: showroom/road vehicle acceleration value for money.. well, way back in 1999..
US magazine Cycle World, tested the new, sub $10,000 - Suzuki GSX-R 1300 Hayabusa ..
..which duly cut a 0-60 mph (~100 km/h) time of 2.6 sec's - on its way to a sub 10 sec 1/4 mile (~400 m)..
