Rent Bugatti Veyron in Europe
Assigned to the task of getting that mass up to speed is a quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W16 engine mounted amidships. (The Veyron's "16.4" refers to cylinder and turbocharger count.) In simplified terms, the engine's W layout could be described as being two Volkswagen narrow-angle V8s joined together. It's rated at 1,001 hp and 922 pound-feet of torque. To put that output into perspective, think of the Bugatti Veyron as having two Corvette Z06 engines. Power is sent to all four wheels through an F1-style, seven-speed automated manual gearbox whose design is similar to that of VW's well-regarded DSG transmission. Thanks to all-wheel drive and massive wheels and tires, the Veyron is ferociously quick, with published reports indicating a 0-60-mph time of approximately 2.5 seconds and a quarter-mile time in the low 10-second range. And when placed into a special top-speed mode that primes the car for minimum aerodynamic drag, the Veyron is indeed capable of 252 mph. Naturally, one might find it hard to locate a long enough straight to achieve this, so Bugatti kindly limits the Veyron's normal top speed to a "mere" 230 mph.
