The Bugatti Rental Los Angeles is, by every measure, the world’s most extreme production road car. It’s the quickest to 60, has the highest top speed, and it can absolutely dominate a track in spite of its weight.
The original Veyron claimed 1,001 horsepower, which in itself was a major technical achievement. Its engine, boasting 16 cylinders, was essentially formed by joining two V8 engines at the crank.
The W16 powerplant displaces 8.0-liters and features ten radiators for everything from the engine cooling systems to the air conditioner.
The standard Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Coupe ran a cool $1.3 million and could reach a top speed of 253 mph – a speed it can maintain for 12 minutes before all the fuel is gone. Power is transmitted to the pavement via a four-wheel-drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission.
The car could hit 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, 100 mph in 5.5 seconds, and 150 mph in 9.8 seconds. Getting to 200 mph took 18.3 seconds, and 250 mph takes 42.3 seconds.
A special key is required to “unlock” the Veyron’s top speed of 250+ mph. The car is then lowered to just 3.5 inches from the ground. A hydraulic spoiler extends at speed, and it can also serve as an air brake.
GREAT service and customer care. The staff and owners are very knowledgeable about every vehicle in their fleet… They provide optional home deliveries and pick-ups, which I think is more convenient.
