Bugatti Veyron Review

Bugatti Veyron 16.4
0-60mph in 2.5 secs
253 mph
Head of Design Hartmut Warkuss and his team were faced with a
Herculean task: they were to design a car that combined its classic
heritage and state-of-the-art modernism in a unique and unmatched way.
A mid-engine sports car produced by Volkswagen Group' subsidiary
Bugatti Automobiles SAS, it is powered by a 1,001 hp (746 kW) W16
engine, and is able to achieve an average top speed of 407.47 km/h
(253.19 mph).
The car is handcrafted in a factory Volkswagen built near the former
Bugatti head
quarters in Chateau St Jean in Molsheim (Alsace, France).
It is named after French racing driver Pierre Veyron, who won the '24 hours o
f Le Mans' in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti firm.
