Article Body:
For many years the Mclaren F1 was the fastest road car in the world, but changes have been a foot over the last few years. The latest to challenge this top spot is the Bugatti Veyron. Made by Volkswagen this is likely to be the best driving experience from a road car you will get in your lifetime.

Ferdinand Piech the boss of VW came up with the idea of producing a car with 1000 horsepower that could do over 200mph, for those where money was no object. The outrageous price tag of £700,000 or approx $1,100,000, is only compounded by the fact it costs considerably more to make. Yes VW, will be loosing millions of dollars to sell this car, which is why the opinion is, that no other manufacturer would build a road car you could buy, that would match this performance and style.

Lets look at a few figures then;

1001, Horsepower!
14 radiators, Yes 14!!
$3,200 to make an indicator stalk!
Tyres specially developed by Michelin, $1800 each!
922lb of torque!
229 miles per hour or 370kph (believe it or not the normal configuration is restricted)

But tweak the engine and you can get;

253mph, which is 407.5mph
Ten seconds to stop from 250mph!
100ltr fuel tank that can be emptied at top speeds within 12 minutes!


This is a major achievement in engineering, especially from a manufacture that does not have a background in Formula One like Mclaren and Ferrari and it makes you wonder what they could achieve if they were to enter that field.

The car also looks stunning. Without the badge, you would not be able to tell if it was Italian or German, but you would know it couldnt be anything else but these two. At certain angles it looks like a teardrop, with only its open grill that looks like a goldfishs open mouth to break that line. I fact if I had anything bad to say about the car it would be that I am not sure about this front grill. There are some that would say front grill gives it a growl, maybe so. But to me the growl is too polite, it either shouldnt be there, and had kept more of its lines or it should have been a roar; after all this is the fastest road car in the world.

The aerofoil at the back, keeps this monster on the road, and automatically raises itself at certain high speeds, a bit of a give away if you are speeding down a motorway and the policeman following you knows you are breaking the speed limit for no other reason than your aerofoil is up. However the good news is there is no police car on earth going to catch you, the bad news is it wouldnt be hard to track down the owner. First, there isnt going to be many of these is any neighbourhood and second even your Granny would turn her head to see one of these beauties driving down the road.
This car promises to be one of the most talked about motorcar for a long time to come. And if you cant afford the to buy best driving experience of a lifetime, you can at least dream.
