This may well be the most sophisticated production vehicle ever made. Its 16-cylinder 1,001hp engine, seven-speed DSG transmission and four-wheel drive system deliver top class performance. A hugely sophisticated Electronic Stability Program ensures that the driver always has the right levels of flexibility, balance and power, whatever the speed.
Such is the pace of the Bugatti Veyron, it needs ingenious aerodynamics to keep it firmly planted on the ground. The automatic and adjustable rear spoiler, variable ride height and adjustable vents all affect the relationship between propulsion and downforce, working with the car’s efficient body shape to maintain perfect control.
In a car capable of immense speed, braking technology needed to reinvent the rules, so on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, it does. The incredible carbon brakes will stop the car from 62mph in 2.3 seconds - 0.2 seconds faster than it takes this ultimate performance car to accelerate from 0-62mph.
