So, all hype and nothing. Not only did they miss the Veryron speed by 23 MPH they also missed their stated speed by 43 MPH. Not that it's easy to get a car to go 200+ MPH.

What tires did they use? Or do they plan on using at 250+ MPH? The Veryon is limited at that speed because of the tires I thought?
