What we're trying to say is that Godzilla has a fair chance of getting a bit of a lead during the take-off phase.
This is exactly what happens in the footage below. However, before we invite you to scroll over to the clip, there are a few things we need to discuss.
First of all, the driver of the Veyron used here has a slow reaction time, with the guy in the GT-R managing to make the most out of the launch control feature thanks to this.
However, the interesting part is that, in theory, the Nissan could beat the Bug even if both drivers showed identical reaction times. That's because both machines have identical times in the standing start sprints to 60 km/h (37 mph).
Oh well, at least the race is balanced in terms of the soundtrack - neither of these two cars has a soundtrack that matches its dynamic abilities.
The problem, as far as the VW Group's now-retired halo car is concerned, is not the power-to-weight ratio, as this is an area where the Veyron easily walks the also-meaty GT-R.
In fact, it all comes from a little trick Nissan used when designing their crown jewel. You see, the Japanese engineers optimized the weight-to-tire-contact-patch ratio.
In English, this means the GT-R can make the most out of its intelligent all-wheel-drive system (friends call this the ATTESA E-TS).
How does all that work in real life? You're about to find out.
