    They don't directly state any times but it seemed the bike crushed it in a straight line and then around the track the Gallardo won?

    No doubt the bike would win in a straight up to a certain speed, and I'd bet the car would smoke it on the track....there was a good top gear or 5th gear where tiff needle races a civic type r vs a Honda cbr1000 (Honda vs Honda) and tiff beats the cbr on the track...any time turns came tiff would catch back up then bike would pass on the straight

    ^ Yep, there is also another vid of a bike vs. car with a 996 vs. some pro on a bike. The car wins.

    4 tires vs 2, one can carry more speed in turns and brake faster due to a larger contact patch.
