Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport – Such a Good Look…Filthy!!!!
In the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, a handful of buyers will get a rocket that gleams across the planet’s surface faster than any true production automobile that has come before.
More pics and a nasty nasty price tag after the jump…
Particulars include 1,001 horsepower, 16 cylinders, 8 liters of engine displacement, 4 turbochargers, all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The removable-roof version of the Veyron coupe costs 1.4 million Euros, or roughly $2.1 million.
Bugatti’s main achievement is making a car that weighs nearly 4,400 pounds — about 1,100 more than a Corvette or Porsche 911 — accelerate and handle so well.
Overall, the car is so overqualified for public roads that even the ultra-rich who can afford to buy it would be better off with a more approachable sports car. At speeds that test the limits of more ordinary performance cars, the Bugatti feels bored. And when a car makes a Lamborghini seem tastefully understated, there’s a problem.
