MotorHead is working hard at building an online presence to compliment its amazing magazine, so for every main feature the team put together in print, they back it up with an online film to really bring the story to life. For Volume 07 MotorHead came up with the idea to take a prohibitively-expensive Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport to Fuji Speedway and let pro driver Seiji Ara loose in it. Hit play and enjoy this rather special time attack session, then check back next week when we take our own look at the very same car!

Sorry my mistake looks like he's pushing 6,000 rpm's

This guy's pushing 8,000 rpm's: at speeds like that the 8 liter W-16 engine consumes 1.8 gallons per minute; the car would run out of fuel in roughly 12 minutes. That's a 23 gallon tank and I have no clue where you find 98 octane racing fuel. Other than the track. Amazing times Amazing car. The Roadster is another $300,000 US over the standard Veryron.

Just watching the keychain in the ignition alone tells you how much force is going in to each turn, braking and accelerating. Powerful.

All I can think of is that it probably has the worst lap time of any 1000hp car.

That opening shot in the transporter was really cool. I wish the full lap had been shown with the time in order to make some comparisons... the Veyron is cool and all but when push comes to shove... it's hard to find lap times. I heard it only did 7:40 at the Nurburgring, but that wasn't the Super Sport...

"it's amazing magazine".....let the audience evaluate that! You are promoting a Japanese magazine, written mainly in Japanese to non-Japanese speakers (99% of SH readers don't read Japanese). What do you expect the results to be?

Motorhead videos are all the same.  Slo-mo panning shots are cool, and sometimes the commentary is interesting,  but nothing exciting ever happens.  They are porn without nudity.  A full lap and nothing else is all I wanted to see from about 2 minutes in.

 @JDMized The results are actually really good I count the international orders every day. Do you know how many international buyers still purchase DoriTen, Option, Garage Life magazine etc as well without having an Japanese language proficiency, quite a few. I appreciate the imagery and beautiful photography in MotorHEAD as do others from the international sales results.

 @Boxeryatsu We will post a full lap very soon. The race driver of the car was being very careful as the car is not his and is worth well over 2 million dollars hence why the full lap was not included. The car is so stable and smooth that it make for a less than exciting raw lap when it appears so smooth and slow, it's actually quite a paradox. The car is so fast but yet looks slow due to how smooth it is.

 @LukeHuxham Luke you are not trying to push the mag are you?

Do you know how long Daijiro Inada has been in business? His magazines sell because his formula is perfect. Are you guys tagging along GenroQ? Sure it seems :)

 @speedhunters_dino I am not so eager to make a buck like you guys :) And if I were. I would come up with MY OWN idea :)

@speedhunters_dino Dino the formula is very simple. "uh, we don't know what to do! Let's just copy the well-known magazines!" That's the formula.
