wild isnt it !!
The all-wheel-drive, two-passenger Veyron certainly merits supercar status. Its 8.0-liter W-16 engine is fitted with four turbochargers, producing 1,001 horsepower, with a projected top speed of 249 miles per hour.
wohhh!!!

I think the project was put on hold in the middle, and for a while, there were doubts as to whether they'll make it at all, because apparently the prototypes experienced serious stability problems above 210 mph.

The car is pointless, but I would love to see it in production. It is like a last swansong of the supercar, before the emissions regulations, and all the organizations fighting to ban fuel guzzling hypercars, kill the entire breed.
