    Default Driving the world's fastest car

    Bugatti Veyron
    1001 horsepower, 253 miles-an-hour, 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds.…

    The numbers of the beast
    That’s perhaps disappointing if you want to brag to your pedantic gazillionaire pals that your car’s packing over 1000bhp. Until you realise that 1001hp is a minimum figure, set in the worst conditions. To be sure it never produces less than its claimed output,

    Bugatti quietly suggesting the mighty 8.0-litre, 16-cylinder engine actually develops around 1050hp, or 1035bhp to you and me. And that’s plenty. It’s enough to make this carbon-fibre machine produce some scarcely believable figures. On the way to that headline 253mph top speed it’ll reach 62mph in just 2.5 seconds, 124mph in 7.3 seconds and 186mph in 16.7 seconds

    This car has a lot of issues and will surface or disappear in a couple of years time.

    Just for the information, this car sold out in its first quarter only and more were ordered. They had to start producing at a faster pace to meet the demand.

    Its here to stay.........Staying on my laptop as a wallpaper for now :p

    it does look cool on your Laptop but you have to know the story of wht kind of trouble VW went just to make this car. Why do you think the W configuration engine was made, coz the normal engine v16 would be too long. They built the W just for this car and it has problem of putting that power down on the ground too, weak links are the tranny and driveshafts. Why do you think this car never made it to the track like the Mclaren F1 or a ferrari Enzo and others. This car is just to be kept in the showcase, or not driven hard.

    @F1: The Veyron features a W16 engine—16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders, or the equivalent of two narrow-angle V8 engines mated in a vee configuration. Each cylinder has 4 valves, for a total of 64, but the narrow V8 configuration allows two camshafts to drive two banks of cylinders so only 4 camshafts are needed. The engine is fed by four turbochargers................It sure is still unstable at high speeds but it also SURELY has paved way for future technologies and possibilities. For that i respect the car!!

    I should point out that Bentley & Bugatti are both owned by V.A.G (Volkswagen) so it makes sense for them to use a VW based powerplant. Same might be true for lamborghini soon too...

    Thanks but seen it way before! as for the turbos you can spool 8 turbos if you want depending on the size, so turbos is no biggie.

    As for the bentley Hunaudieres that was test bed for this engine.

    I hope they work on getting it stable by the day, rather than us hearing about a 2000hp to hit the market or something. Then that i would say is irrational and ridiculous.
