If only 2 dozen cars are going to be produced, then can it be considered as a production car?
Being a limited production car is understandable if atleast a 100 of these were made available to the world. 2 dozen is way too little.

Hate to break the mood, but rumours are in mills that Bugatti is preparing a 1150 BHP+ variant for the Veyron. Claimed top speed of 420 kmph...

Then again, the Koenigsegg CCX's are already claiming 258 MPH figures.

Rest assured, Bugatti will trump the competition. For sure.

That Cd comes from all the trickery needed to keep the car on the ground at 258 mph.

Only 24 cars? Can they remain exclusive considering competition is gaining fast? butttttt she looks really sedate yet menacing. not a supercar look but a killer sleeper is more like it.

Looks better than the veyron to me. No fugly two tone paint job and fugly open mouth mesh grill in the front. But what the heck if it can turn heads, i might as well buy it.

Default The Fastest Car in the World?

Hello! I just joined this forum and now I have found it. I simply love the forum.


BTW, I searched but couldn't find the thread regarding the fastest car in the world. Can anyone please tell me the same?

Mods, if this thread is present somewhere else then please remove this one.
