It has two V8 engines strapped together and turbocharged to produce 1,000 horsepower, and it does 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds. That makes this ultimate supercar as fast as a Formula 1 racecar.
Somehow the fantastic British TV show Top Gear managed to not only get their hands on a Veyron for testing… but convinced Bugatti to allow them to race an airplane from Italy to London!
The show is one hour long, and starts out with a couple of other features, but after about 15 minutes it gets into the Veyron piece. Two notable quotes from Jeremy Clarkson in the video:
I’ve never, ever, ever experienced anything like this.
This car is like nothing I’ve ever driven… nothing I’ve ever been in… nothing I even sketched as an 8 year old.
On with the show…
