This car is the XJ220 Jaguar never had. It is exactually what Jaguar wanted the XJ220 to be. All wheel drive, large displacement engine. The only thing is that it is French and has 16 cylinders. The power output is, I think, a little higher than what Jaguar would have wanted but the car is like the excact same thing.

I was looking up some stuff about this car and it supposedly tops out at 250mph:eek:

I believe it. 1001 HP is a shit load. But I only know of two cars with engines in a configuration like that.

I read in C&D that that is the European rating system, which is not exactly like the American system. Here it translates to something more like 925-950, i think. Its still a shit load of power though;)

Actually, that is the torque.

No, its hp. I know you think I am thinking of Newton Meters of Torque, but I read an article in Car & Driver talking about the Veyron and this European HP system...I am positive it was horsepower. I hadn't heard of this system before the article. I'll try to fing it though (the article) and see...

what are you talking about hakka?? i haven't heard about that. i have that C and D with the bugatti and it didn't say anything about a Euro hp rating. so you're saything something like the 996 turbo will only have about 350 US hp?? and the F1 only like 550 US hp?

He's probably right, it's rating is probably different in the states.

Why don't you start an arguement about a car that you know you'll win.

Volkswagen is claiming that the Bugatti will have a top speed of 248.5 mph. I'm doubting that it will actually do that...when they build a real one.

Whitebread:

What did you mean by "But I only know of two cars with engines in a configuration like that"?

The engine banks. The engine in the Bugatti is not a V, I, or Boxer, is it.
The only other car with that style of engine, that i know of, is is a Vector.

All Vectors had V engines. The W8 was, in fact, a Chevy 350 block and the M12 was a Lamborghin V12 engine.

The only "W" engines on the market come from VW. The new Passat W8 and Audi A8 6.0 are the only cars I can think of in history to have a four-bank "V" engine.

There have been some "rotary" engines...not Wankels...where the pistons were positioned in a circle around the crankshaft, just like early piston engined planes. They haven't built any production cars like this, that I know of, in many decades.

I'd like to see a radial car engine, It would be very tall though. Volkswagen's new "Supercar" also has a W12.

Volkswagen's W12 "supercar" is just a concept at this point.

OH NO! 14hp less... big deal, when a car has that much power 14hp is nothing :D

here's an interesting fact: the W12 concept just broke the 24 hour land speed record, averaging 183mph....a completely stock ZR-1 used to hold the record at 175mph...too bad:(
