The Cadillac won't have the 1000 hp engine (I'm maybe wrong) or at least that's not sure at all, whereas the french car willl have its 1001 hp !

Why do people insist on comparing the Sixteen and the Veyron. Their 16 cylindar engines are ALL they have in common. They are in two completely defferent categories. Sixteen is a luxery car that happens to pack 1000 horses. The Veyron is a sport/exotic.
Anyway, I agree that the Veyron could use some bigger turbos, but man, that thing is cool. Gotta love the styling, interior, and the two-tone paint job. And, of course, the Sixteen is the coolest Cadillac since... ever.

It doesn't need any bigger turbos- 1001 bhp is more than enough thank you.

Supermancar : the Bugatti is exotic... for you, for Europeans, the Cadillac is exotic

I do think 1001 HP is plenty, but the turbos seem too small for the engine. Boost it another hundred or so horses and you got a McLaren eater.
