The Bugatti Veyron, Super Fast, Super Car

The Bugatti Veyron, Super Fast, Super Car
In the world of fast sports cars, there's fast, and there's ridiculously, crazy fast. The Bugatti Veyron is the latter. This exotic sports car is one of the smallest around, even smaller than the Porsche 911th But what this car lacks in size, it makes up for in shear power.
The Veyron has a top-end speed of 252-mph, making it the fastest production car in the world. Its W16 engine puts out an amazing 1,001 horsepower, which also makes it the most powerful. With a carbon fiber and aluminum body and frame to help reduce the car's weight, it checks in at 4,500 pounds - which is still surprisingly heavy for its size.
W16 refers to the Veyron 16.4 cylinder and turbocharger engine. This quad-turbo 8-liter monster is one of the most powerful engines ever constructed for an automobile. The "W" refers to the two narrow-angled Volkswagen V8s that are joined together. The Bugatti Veyron literally has two Corvette engines.
The car is all-wheel-drive (AWD) and operates like an F-1 car in terms of the seven-speed automated manual gearbox. Sitting in this car and pressing on the accelerator may be enough to cause serious injury unless you're properly secured. The Veyron is nothing to be played with.
It can go from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds, and it runs the quarter mile in an amazing 10 seconds. With the top-speed mode engaged, a driver could top out at the amazing 252 mph in under a minute. However, as that speed is a dangerous prospect, Bugatti's production models are released with a speed max of 230 mph.
