  • Bugatti Veyron

    Just got the latest Motor magazine and it's got this on the front cover ... This thing is an engineering marvel .... a production car that can do 406km/hr and it looks FANTASIC aswell!!



    Some specs:

    0-100 in 2.5secs (that's as quick as Rossi's Yamaha)
    0-200 in 7.3secs
    0-300 in 16.7secs
    0-400 in 55secs ... at this speed you are covering 111 meters per second

    The ferrari 575M Maranello takes about 1 min to get to 300km/hr ... bloody slow!

    It's not terribly fuel efficient though ... at full speed it will empty the 100L tank in 20mins

    I know it's blasphemy but ... That is one car I would sell my bike for

    ... now has anyone got a spare $3 000 000.00 I can borrow for a bit ?

          Part of me is disgusted by the excess this vehicle represents, the other part wonders if we strip out all the luxuries/interior, put in a roll cage and harness - how will it handle around the track? Wonder how fast it could get to 400km/h on naws and race fuel?

              Imagine how much it would cost to get tyres rated for 400km/h, still it may be hot but the McLaren F1 is hotter

                  406km/hr is just what they took it up to on a test run and it wasnt topped out.

                    It&#39;s not a real car until I&#39;ve seen Jeremy Clarkson and Tiff Needell in it sideways.

                    I wouldn&#39;t trust manufacturer claims for squat.

                      What he said, I wanna see Clarkson test it around the airport racetrack and do the odd skid here and there.

                        Damn, imagine the insurance, however if you had the money to buy it i dont think the insurance would bother you.

                              is that a typo?

                              i think its one very ugly car.
                              i can honestly say id much rather have a $100,000 (?) dodge viper GTS than that
                              hell, id even prefer a VZ commodore ute
