    I can't find the test on www.evo.co.uk

    It's a good issue, so picking it up would be worth your while.

    Most of these tests are biased in some way or another. Hopefully it's not as bad as Top Gear where one car will pwn another one but they will say the slower car is better because it's from Britain.

    I'm guessing the Veyron wasn't included.

    I have no doubt the Porsche did better, they are truely the only european sports car you can take to the track with little concearn for the vehicle reliability. However I doubt the Z06 lost by much, and no matter what car you are talking about, certain tracks favor certain cars better than others.
