Record-breaking Bugatti arrives

It has been a long time coming, but Bugatti has finally revealed the production version of its awesome Veyron supercar as these first official pictures show. And after a series of problems in development, the EB16.4 Veyron has silenced the critics by smashing the top speed record for road cars with a spectacular two-way average speed of 252.95mph at parent company Volkswagen’s Ehra Lessien test track in Germany.

Powered by a 987bhp, quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine, the Veyron finally betters the McLaren F1’s 240.10mph record set back in 1998. The million-euro supercar is unveiled this weekend at Bugatti’s headquarters in Molsheim, France. The Veyron’s 922lb ft of torque is channelled through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox to all four wheels, propelling the 1888kg Bugatti from rest to 62mph in an outrageous 2.5sec. (Autocar.co.uk)

This is a supercar monster, like the Gumpert, its beyond exotic, is a euro monster hotrod in a Gucci designed Armani patented body. Its a mad mad mad speedster in steroids, LSD with a pinch of estasy. You need a superlicence to drive one, just mind blowing in cosmic proportions. Can't wait till TopGear test it!
