No words.

I know this is a Wikipedia article but...I don't care. When you are done reading it <--(clicky) and able to pick your jaw up off the floor, and maybe put your eyeballs back in your head...comment if you like.

I guess not many people read it. Maybe this will make you read it.

FOUR TURBOCHARGERS!!!!!

TEN RADIATORS!!!!!!!

0-120 MPH FASTER THAN A FOCUS CAN DO 0-60!!!!!!

Check out some of these ridiculous features...

"When the car reaches 220 km/h (137 mph), hydraulics lower the car until it has a ground clearance of about 8.9 cm (3½ inches). At the same time, the wing and spoiler deploy. This is the "handling" mode, in which the wing helps provide 770 pounds (3425 newtons) of downforce, holding the car to the road."

"The driver must, using a special key (the "Top Speed Key"), toggle the lock to the left of his seat in order to use the maximum speed of 407.5 km/h (253.2 mph)."

And...what!? Swear to God, this is in the article...

"Theoretically you can put the key in your own and squeeze to start the engine."

Check out the braking:

"The Veyron's brakes utilize unique cross-drilled and turbine-vented carbon rotors, which draw in cooling air to reduce fade. Each caliper has eight titanium pistons. Bugatti claims maximum deceleration of 1.3 g on road tires. Prototypes have been subjected to repeated 1.0 g braking from 194 to 50 mph (312 to 80 km/h) without fade. With the car's fearsome acceleration from 50 to 194 mph (80 to 312 km/h), that test can be performed every 22 seconds. At speeds above 124 mph (200 km/h), the rear wing also acts as an airbrake, snapping to a 70-degree angle in 0.4 seconds once brakes are applied, providing 0.5 g (4.9 m/s²) of deceleration. Bugatti claims the Veyron will brake from 252 mph (406 km/h) to a standstill in less than 10 seconds. The braking is also so evenly applied that the car will not deviate from a straight path if the driver lets go of the steering wheel, even with the brakes fully applied starting from close to top speed."

Eats gas like a freakin monster truck!!!

" * EPA city driving: 7 mpg U.S. (30 L/100 km)
* EPA highway driving: 10 mpg U.S. (16 L/100 km)
* Steady 253 mph (407.5 km/h): 2.1 mpg U.S. (115 L/100 km)"


Just read the article...it's interesting, and ridiculous.

"repair service will require a flown-in mechanic, whom the company promises will be available 24 hours a day"

$1,440,800 is the price...

Steady 253 mph: 2.1 mpg

The Veyron's handbrake features ABS, allowing it to be used to stop the car in case the main brakes fail

At 230 mph the Veyron 'consumes' 10,000 gallons of air per minute, as much as the average person inhales in 4 days

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_pictures/6423241.stm

Those are pics of a wrecked one...+

This thing is something else.

The Veyron is like the grown-up version of the cars we drew when we were kids. The ones that flew through the air with afterburners, and were covered with missile launchers and lasers and machine guns. VW managed to take an idea almost that ridiculous and turn it into a living breathing car. It's "the" car of the moment, until something even more insane comes along.

I'd still take a McLaren F1, thank you very much. I'd rather less weight & complexity.
