2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4




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.
