The new ultimate supercar....with an estimated 900Ft./Lbs. torque from a 1001din HP/890+ BHP quad turbo V16 engine, this car will easily rip Mclaren, my other fav machine a new one.....while this does not make me hate the Mclaren, it does diminsh my enthusiasm somewhat Icannot wait to see the true performance of this beast! 260 mph seems to be in the realm of possibility!

wow! that's amazing! isn't it W16 though? not v16.
I've heard it will have way over 1000hp.
Can't wait to see how much juice it got

Piech said it will have 1001 European HP, or 987 American horsepower. 1250 newton-meters (922 lb-ft), 4 wheel drive, a qaud-turbo W16, a 406 km (252 mph) top speed. That is what I know. That top-speed may not be right. Expect 0-60 in the 2 second range (not a typo, really) Oh, it has a 6-speed stick and aluminum space-frame. 50-60 will be made.
THIS WILL BE THE WORLDS BEST CAR. PERIOD.
Price of admission: 1 million greenbacks.
Is it wrong to have a dream about it? (seriously, I did. I dreamed Mr. Peich was there, giving it to me. It was amazing to drive. The engine was awesome. MAybe I shoudl get out more often)

I'm going faint.

The reaon any performance you here is bogus is because no one anywhere (not even Piech) is telling what it will be like.

50-60 will be made.
that's annually, not total. car and driver says price will be around 750K. with 922 lbft available at 2200 rpm, i think 2 second 0-60 times will be easy to get.

I'm pretty sure 50-60 is the total, total, I think. It will be one million, most likely/certainly.

i. must. disagree.

McLaren F1. the F1 is a much better car. it had so much more than just massive power, like the 16/4. the only special thing about the Bugatti is the massive power and the 16 cylinder engine.

The problem with the Veyron is that it hasn't been built yet. The F1 has it all over the Bugatti for that reason, there are actually F1s in the hands of owners around the world.

Once its built and driven by people who have driven F1's (like Tiff Needle), then we will have a good comparison. Some mag will probably get a chance to compare them head to head. But technology has come a long way in 10 years, so I think this Bugatti will be better.

well, for one it's more practical. the looks are much more tame (so will blow the minds of those who know and confuse those who don't) and the interior is a lot nicer.

I'm a big Bugatti fan, but I think I'd choose an F1 over the Veyron. I don't like the styling and it would seem that the F1 would be a better driver's car (atleast that's the image I'm getting). VW wants this bird to fly...and I'm sure they'll do it.

No dealers. One produced each week starting at the end of 2003 (or the beginning of 2004) and only 200 built when all is said and done.

I prefer the EB110 over the Veyron. And the new car seems to be lacking something that the original Bugattis had...but I can't put a finger on it.
