fastest around a track

I know this will sound like something straight out of a twelve year olds mind

but

which car out of these 5 would win in a race around a course
(like the topgear test track for instance)

1.bugatti veyron ( get over the 1000hp and think about......4012lbs

2.dont laugh, but a pontiac fiero with 400 hp and rear sway bar (all it needs)

3.something along the lines of an ariel atom

4.mclaren f1 ( had to stick that one in there )

5. completly your choice ( please dont say an indy car or a sunfire with neon)


give your thoughts and let the race begin

I think the atom it has the best power to weight ratio and is low to the ground. The veyron might be fast down a straight line, but can it turn at good speeds? Possibly a good thread to start arguments on....now its up to people on who can argue the best

ive always dreamed of starting my own crazy arguement thread haha
IMO the ariel atom or i dunno, maybe the f1,
but like you said, the veyron definitley has great handling, but there has to be much better

Almost definitely the Atom, but if I could pick a car, I'd go with the redesigned Pagani Zonda, with 602 hp, or if this is possible, the Brabus CLS V12S, pumping 730 ponies

And MAYBE the Koenigsegg CC...

I'd say the Atom would probably be the fastest round a track. In Top Gear's lap records it rates about third I believe!....but I'm not sure what to!
