The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is a mid-engined hypercar by Bugatti.
The Veyron 16.4 is famous for its top speed of 253 mph (407 km/h), which then made it the fastest production car in the world, beating the McLaren F1, Dauer 962 Le Mans, and Koenigsegg CCX but eventually being beaten by the SSC Ultimate Aero TT.
The Veyron has an 8.0 L (7,993 cc; 487.8 cu in) quad-turbocharged W16 engine, similar to two narrow-angle V8 engines bolted together. Each cylinder has four valves for a total of 64, but the configuration of each bank allows two overhead camshafts to drive two banks of cylinders so only four camshafts are needed. The engine is fed by four turbochargers and has a square 86×86 mm (3.39×3.39 in) bore and stroke. The engine makes at least 987 hp (736 kW) and 922 ft·lb (1250 N·m), although these official numbers have been stated by Bugatti officials to be conservative, with 1006 hp (750 kW) actually being made at 6,000 rpm.
The Veyron uses a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission driving all four wheels and has a weight of 4470 lb (2028 kg), making it one of the heaviest hypercars in existence. Consequently, it has a power-to-weight ratio of only 496 hp (370 kW) per tonne.
The Veyron is capable of 0 - 60 mph (0 - 97 km/h) in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of at least 250 mph (402 km/h). On April 19, 2005, German inspection officials recorded an average top speed of 253.81 mph (408.47 km/h) during test sessions on Volkswagen Group's private Ehra-Lessien test track. In November 2006, this top speed was almost matched by Top Gear co-presenter James May, at 253.2 mph (407.5 km/h).
The Bugatti Veyron is capable of reaching speeds of 311 mph (500 km/h).
