Bugatti Veyron 16.4




For my first post on SupercarRadio I figured I'ed do my favorite car, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4. There are many reasons for this being my favorite car, from it's extremely high horsepower engine to the very comforting interior.
Lets start with the exterior. The front end takes a little warming up to, but don't worry, it grows on you. The two tone starts AND ends at the front end, something that we rarely ever see in as a stock paint scheme, but for 1.6 million, the better come up with something creative. The line starts at the front end by the "tunnel" like grill as it goes up the trunk, that's right trunk, it creates the perfect spot for the lights to start out. As it works its way back the door at the window line, it curves to come back and creates a scoop for the rear tires and then finally makes its way back up to the front left and front right grills. To me, the rear end is the most beautiful part of the exterior. Two large scoops, that look like they belong on a jet, come out and stop at the back of the roof. A large piece of glass shows off the top of the engine with an adjustable spoiler behind it.
As for the interior, it reminds me of an old antique car's interior, or maybe the interior of and older airplane. The metallic silver center counsel sports sleek and stylish gauges. The stick shift in the center council is the same color as the rest of the dash, a woody brown. The steering wheel is the biggest reminder of a classic car with the Bugatti symbol in the center.
I saved the best for last, the 10001 horsepower engine. The main reason that this engine has such high horsepower is because it host's 16 cylinders, and these 16 cylinders also create 923 lb-Ft, a very impressive number. A more impressive number, although, is 1.6, this is how much it costs to buy this car. $1,600,000, for that much, you could buy a Ferrari F430 Spider and a million dollar house. But that's what happens when you pay for a Quad-Turbocharged W16. That's right, W, the engine isn't in the regular V formation, it's in a W, this way they don't have to make the engine really long, like the Cadillac XV16 prototype.
As for performance, this car can do 0-60 in 3 seconds, 0-200 in 14 seconds, and a top speed of 252mph! In summary, if you are in the market for a supercar, you might want to take a look at this one, but for the hefty price, I don't see many of these being sold, though it is my car of preference.

  • I read that this thing gets about 1/4 of a mile to the gallon while going 252 MPH. That's just sickening. :)

  • Well sometimes you have to give a little to get a little, lol, but I wouldn't expect any body to be going 252 down a highway, and if your able to pay the 1.6 Million for this car, I don't think you would really care. lol ;)
