sweet sixteen

Buggatti needs some bigger turbos. Check out the up and coming Caddy... with a standard V-16 that comes with 1000hp The "cadillac sixteen" Of course you'll have to cough up 250,000 for it.

Yay free link! I was looking for them for about 15 minutes yesterday, before admitting defeat.

Caddy's V-16 is also 832 cubic inches, way to put shame to the Viper's 505. but have good luck fitting that engine in many cars. the W-16 is superior to it because of the compact size, u can probably change the turbos in it to bigger, maybe. but the Caddy's V-16 has an automatic fuel shut off thing where it cuts the fuel to half the cylinders to save gas at an idle and cruising speed so your hp is also cut, but 832 cubic inches, pretty cool i think.

I like it After all a single, no wait, twin, nope, tri (nope - this car exceeds even that), yes, quad turbos - I definately like it! But the front grille is Alfa Romeo style, and a real supercar doesn't have turbos (but who cares?). Also, supercars are supposed to not be perfect

Just one thing : many people here compare the Sixteen with the Veyron.... the the image of Cadillac has nothing to deal with the Bugatti's image ! That's an huge difference.
Plus, the Veyron will have 1001hp, for the Siteen it's not sure at all

The Sixteen and the Veyron have nearly nothing in common...except that both claim to have 1,000hp V16 engines. The Sixteen has a huge pushrod V16 engine powering a four door, four-passenger body through the rear wheels. The Veyron has a smaller (still large) "W16" with four turbochargers, double-overhead cams, 4-valves per cylinder and motivates a two-door, two-passenger body powering all four wheels. There's no reason to compare the two.

Exactly both cars are two differnet kettles of fish- a 4dr luxury sedan with not nearly as much technologi-cal advancements as the Veryon- versus a 2 door, 2 seat supercar- rather ahead of it's time

Actually, the Veyron was rated in DIN hp, which translates to about 987hp SAE...putting the Veyron at a whopping 13hp DISADVANTAGE to the Sixteen. Let's see....13hp over 1,000hp....that's a 1.3% hp differential! That's like comparing a 300hp engine to a 296hp engine.
