Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

Not too many cars can lay claim to having the straight line warp speed needed to beat a sports bike to 60 mph and beyond.

With a 0 - 60 mph (100kmh) of just 2.5 seconds the Bugatti Veyron is in a class of it's own. Over 1000hp W16 engine all wheel drive and with a TS of over 250mph (400 kmh) Even if cars are not your thing this is one stand out peice of engineering. With a price tag of over 1m the bike is always going to win the "bang for your buck" war. Still I would like to take one of these around the block and down the road just to see.

Re: Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

Pretty sure they released the Hellcat by now and it trumped the Veyron. Here is an article about it without proof of the 275mph top speed. I saw one out there a while ago where they said 300 was attainable and that at 275 it wasn't really working.

Re: Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

The Hellcat doesn't look like a 300mph car to me.

Re: Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

From what I have read the Hellcat is about 30% of the price of the Bugatti - It's almost affordable!

Re: Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

So does anyone want to take a guess at how far the bikes can stretch the limits as production machines? One wheel drive will always be a limiting factor in terms of how much power you can get down off the line, that is the thing about these cars, AWD means a launch like a gun shot. I just can't get my head around 0 - 60 in 2.5 and how that must feel - I read one quote from a motoring journo who said of the Bugatti "I put my foot down and my world changed forever" - these are guys that drive the most exotic supercars in the world... Hmmmm

Re: Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

In Florida there was this thing next to the hotel I was staying at that simulated a drag car run. I don't remember how fast it was but it shot you down a track via air power from the way it sounded.
Here's a 1/4 mile in 3.7 seconds...What do you think that felt like?
Video - Slammin' Sammy Miller runs his Oxygen Dragster at Santa Pod Raceway, July 7th 1982. He still holds the record for the fastest ever 1/4 mile ET.

Re: Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

I Think this car is pretty awesome, I watched the Top gear episode where they raced it against a bi plane and another episode where they maxed it out to prove if it was actually capable of 400 KPH. Jeremy said that It has ten radiators, "three to cool the engine, three for the intercoolers, one for axle oil,one for engine oil. one to cool the hydraulic fluid to raise that rear spoiler". I'm worried about my brake pads, paying for trackdays, and tires. Let alone a vehicle of that nature. But I guess thats why you gotta pay to play.

Re: Bugatti Veyron - Faster than a fireblade

If Al Melling is the mover and shaker behind the Hellcat then I wouldn't bother saving your pennies for a deposit. The bloke lives in a fantasy world. Yes he can design engines, sometimes they even work, but putting together a commercial package is way out of his league. Anyone remember the loudly trumpeted Norton Nemesis? MCN watched it being ridden. Once. For about 100 yards. Looked fantastic, awesome power, supposedly, but just a pipe dream. This'll be no different, but I'd be very happy to be proven wrong.
