"So you wanna fly? Try the Bugatti Veyron, which goes so fast that they had to design it not to take off. For slightly more ($1 million) than your Average Joe Enzo, you can do what most people will never, ever get to do – which is generally the point of spending all that cash. In this case, the money goes toward owning the fastest passenger car ever built, a phenomenal exercise in engineering, perseverance and the great lengths a rich person will go in the ultimate game of one-upmanship. The engine, an 8.0-liter W16 (that’s two V8’s fused together) that has four turbochargers, gets 1,001 horsepower. It carries a dry sump lubrication system and a giant radiator so as to handle the amount of heat that comes from all that power, and burns about 1.33 gallons of gasoline per minute.
Frankly, that’s an obscene amount of excess.

Price: Around $1.2 million

Power and Performance: An 8.0-liter W16 that has four turbochargers, gets 1,001 horsepower and burns about 1.33 gallons of gasoline per minute. The transmission is a paddle-operated, dual clutch system with seven gears, driving power to an all-wheel-drive set up. The tires are specially-made Michelins, and are reportedly the widest passenger car tires in the world, designed to handle up to 1.3 G on the skid pad.
Why it matters: Because it’s the fastest passenger car in the world, and because they will only ever make 300 copies. The funny thing is, the Bugatti Veyron is a car to have and not to drive, which is exactly the opposite reason for the car’s existence. Try getting airborne in one of these fellas and you’ll likely hit a pole…and stick the car into the side of a mountain."



:eek: 1,001 Hp and FOUR turbochargers!?!?!?!?!?

There isn't a better car than the McLaren F-1 and it was built in like 92'.. There may be faster cars, but none will be the combo of steetability and power like the F-1..

A guy I am working with is building a sick Supra. I love those cars, turbo's and T-tops.. His is upto about 500hp at the rear wheels which is pretty crazy when I take it for a spin.. Supra's are one of my 5 favorite cars..

I saw a McLaren Mercedes at a dealership here on Saturday.....$486,000. I think I would buy a house for this kind of money.

I have driven one of those with the gullwing doors.. They are extremly fast.. For the price I wouldn't buy one, there are many other cheaper cars that are almost as nice (Ashton Martin).. But when you are an apartment developer and make 47 million off one deal, SLR's are a drop in a bucket along with the S65 and CL500 he has..

The doors on this one did not open like the Lamborghini gullwings, it slanted out and then forwarded up. I would rather for the same price buy a '63 or '64 Stingray Vette, a Hummer or Land Rover, an Aston Martin or Jag....you would still have some money left over too. It would be nice having a fleet of cars like this. I have an Uncle in Belgium who collects yachts like some people collect cars....hope he puts me in his will. :wink:
