Bugatti Veyron and Lamborghini Aventador race through the tunnels at Manchester Airport

This incredible video captures two of the world’s most high-powered supercars racing each other through the tunnels at Manchester Airport.

Filmed by a passenger in the vehicle behind, the footage shows a white Lamborghini Aventador taking on a black Bugatti Veyron on an empty stretch of theA538 Wilmslow Road.

The 30-second clip shows the cars battling for position in the exact spot where footballer Cristiano Ronaldo wrote off his Ferrari in 2009 after crashing it into a roadside barrier in the tunnel.
