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 911. 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.

Instead, Durheimer has been pushing Bugatti to create the world’s fastest and luxurious sedan. Sounds easy, right?
Well, with a $2 million dollar price tag, what do you put into a sedan to make it the most luxurious in the world? No one really knows yet, aside from a few key details such as the engine, or a few shots of the interior. But there aren’t many details available yet considering that the Bugatti Galibier hasn’t been officially released into production but one thing is certain, that Wolfgang Durheimer is not going to launch the car without making sure that it is the outright, most outrageously, overdone luxury car in the world. Durheimer is quoted for saying that for the Galibier, “in his opinion, there should not even be a question about the best car in the world when you sit down to discuss it with your billionaire buddies. He doesn’t want to build it until it’s the car that finishes the argument, not the car that starts it.” Read the rest of this entry »
