The Bugatti Veyron, Stunning The Supercar World.
[ Posted By: Launchpad on 12/8/2009 9:37:14 AM ]

Ever since I was a kid I've loved sports cars. I guess it started with Hot wheels box cars when I was young and was fostered by my need for excitement and adventure as a teenager. Sports cars are an intricate molding of heart pounding speed and passionate design. Begging to be taken to the limit, daring you to test your mettle. And at the same time intriguing the masses with bold lines and soft curves.

Recently Bugatti has re-entered the scene with their Veyron 16.4, a super car monster that has many auto enthusiasts drooling puddles. The styling is on the modern edge and is a love it or leave body design. One thing is for certain, you absolutely will NOT miss this car in a crowd or mistake it for something else.

But the real story here is the hardware. The power plant is a mid engine 8.0L W-16 with two inter-coolers and four turbos producing 1001hp and 922lb-ft of torque. Translating this to the pavement is a seven speed DSG gearbox with auto-clutch and manual paddle shifts coupled to an AWD setup.

All this comes together to produce 0-60 times of 2.7 seconds. That's right boys and girls, its okay to stop and pant for a couple minutes. Recently Motor Trend recorded pulling .99g at 30mph on a test launch, also adding that the space between your back and the seat remain non-existent as long as you stay in the throttle. Other super car functions come as hydraulically controlled speed sensitive ride right, collapsing rear wing, and front diffusers. Another cool feature is how the rear wing changes position according to your speed and even turns flat to induce added air braking at high velocities. It even comes with a cluster dial that reads how much horsepower is being output at any given time.

There you have it, another sports car to pin up on the wall and burn into those gear head memory's. I know for me, this one wasn't hard to log.
