If you have an ounce of gasoline in your veins, you know all about the Bugatti Veyron. You know it has a quad-turbo 16-cylinder engine that makes more than 1000 hp. You know it will accelerate to 60 mph in about 2.7 seconds, go faster than 250 mph, and costs well over a million bucks. You know the Veyron is the ultimate hypercar, that there is no fully street legal automobile in the world — airbags and catalytic converters and all — that is faster and more powerful.
You know it’s one of the most extraordinary cars ever built.
