Algebra problem of the day: Two 918s accelerate from rest in a one-mile-long tunnel from opposite ends. What is their closing speed at the center of the tunnel?
Answer: Greater than 350 mph.
If we had a little more testing room, we might have been able to hit 200 mph and dethrone the Veyron’s 25.5-second zero-to-200-mph time. (It’s also the only car for which we have that stat.) But even Porsche admits that the Veyron accelerates harder at higher speed.
