Ron Dennis is a moron.

Ron Dennis has always been a whining dork, from the days of the McLaren F1 team and his constant denial and complaining about rules, races, and results. Alright, so i don’t care if Ron Dennis doesn’t like the Bugatti Veyron, knowing he has such close ties to McLaren and the McLaren F1, however to call one of the greatest pieces of automotive engineering a “piece of junk” is a bit of a jealous rant, innit?  I don’t think anyone can deny the abillity of the Veyron, no matter how much one doesn’t like it or doesn’t think it’s all it’s cracked up to be.  However, the sort of comment Dennis gave is one that shows me he is simply frustrated and isn’t really thinking clearly when it comes to making a comment about the Bugatti.  Nice one Ron, you sound like a 15 year-old kid at the parking lot with a rusty civic, who calls an M3 or an S4 “junk” because it’s not theirs….

IEDEI VERDICT? I think the Veyron would handily out-accelerate the McLaren F1 after speeds of 120 MPH…..whether the Top Gear test was ‘staged’ or not doesn’t affect my opinion….but the Veyron clearly has MUCH more power, great aerodynamics, and a proven top speed greater than the F1.  NOBODY is going to deny that the Macca F1 was a great car, but it is not invincible.  He also mentions the Veyron would get ‘bogged’ for launch after the clutch was dropped—-BUT THE VEYRON HAS NO CLUTCH!  Fail.  End of story.

    I don’t like Ron as a person but he’s completely right.
    The Veyron is a poser’s car with just empty numbers behind it and no soul.
    🙂

      I cannot fault you for disliking the Veyron, however objectively the car really is a marvel of engineering….and cannot be called “junk” as Dennis as called it….i think that’s just someone not considering the facts, and merely being blinded by opinion.

  2. N1kk3l says:

    Actually you’re right. He’s been childish, he could have made an argumented opinion instead of this cheap publicity stunt.

  3. Andy says:

    Yeah, it’s about time someone put Ron in his place. He’s only been operating at the very highest level of motor sport and automotive engineering for 45 years, whereas you gob off on the internet.
    Nice one!

      ….and this is where i laugh at you worshipping Ron Dennis and blindly accepting his opinions.

  4. clutch says:

    ERRM the Veyron definitely has a clutch. it may not be a manual transmission, but every conventional transmission has a clutch. last time i checked the Veryon was not CVT, it was a DSG double clutch system

    ROFL.

    • Syed says:

      OH really? so you’re thinking the DSG clutches are like a standard clutch? LMAO.

      Dennis said: “Because every time they dropped the clutch it bogged down and we were gone.”

      OH REALLY? i had no idea you could drop a clutch on a DSG gearbox!!!! WOW! fantastic! *turns off sarcasm*

      • Anti-Moron Patrol says:

        You haven’t considered that the clutches themselves works the same way, only that that they are computer controlled. If the electronics misjudge something, this could very well happen.

      • Syed says:

        no, he says the Veyron would be “bogged” down after they would drop the clutch……….there is no dropping of the clutch. The dual clutches ENGAGE automatically….what Dennis is thinking of; are older AWD cars that get bogged down at launch with their all wheel drive systems; something that does not happen with the Veyron.

        So Mr. Dennis is readily ignoring ALL FACTS, basically making up his own facts, and spitting them out to protect his F1? fail.
