I'm sure some of you are top gear fans...

Damn the Veyron is badass
1000 hp
0-60 is like 2.5 and they throttle the top speed to 253

Yeah the VW owned Veyron is awesome. It is pretty much a pair of VR6 engnes put together in a V shape like a V-12 then given 4 turbo chargers and put on crack.

that's a badass car too but double the HP and torqe and you have the veyron. I think they said it cost like 5mil to make one but they sell em for 1.2mil and they made them just to show that they could blow the doors off the current super car market. The only thing that's close is the Hennessey viper which actually beat it some categories.

Just think they veyron needs tires every 2500 miles which cost 10k and 10k to install and it needs new rims every 7500 at 62k. LOL that's some up keep.

There are so many more wicked cars today than just Ferrari's and Lambo's

actually just got done watching Top Gear. If I remember correctly the Pagani Zonda beat the Veyron around the track. But call me old fashioned, this is and probably always be my favorite "super car"

actually, it is vw's w12, the same as my w8 with a few more cylinders. the normally aspirated version powers the phaeton.

I am very close to 300bhp in mine, I can only imagine what boost and 4 more cylinders feels like.. I am sure, NOTHING like my wagon!
