I was reading through Autoexpress which had this Bugatti on the front, which also had the Merc Mclaren SLR, So reading through it, well looking at the front cover, which is like "0-60: 2.4secs - Price-1 Million Euros" Anyway found some info on it, damn this thing is nuts, sod the Merc (Mclaren F1 still kicks its ass)



Bugatti Veyron Specs
Engine:
Placement: Mid-engined
Displacement: 7993cm = 8.0L
Configuration: W16 (two V8's sharing common crankshaft at 90 degrees)
Aspiration: Quad-turbo (4 turbos)
Valvetrain: 64 valves (4 per cylinder) controlled by four overhead crankshafts

Power: 736kw/1001HP @ 6000rpm
Torque: 1250nm/922ft/lbs 2200-5500rpm

Transmission:
7-speed electro-hydraulic F1 paddle shift DCT (Double Clutch Transmission)

Similar to F1 racing transmissions, this revolutionary tranny has 7 gears and shifts in a MAXIMUM time of 0.2 sec using paddles behind the steering wheel.

No official acceleration times as of yet, but 0-300kph is said to be under 14 seconds and top speed is said to be 406km/h.

The car also features a permanent all-wheel drive system and 20 inch rims. (An interesting note is that the rims are designed to suck air in to cool the brake discs)

over 1 million bucks. and i thought it would be bigger than 8 liters, the viper has a larger displacement than that thing!
i bet this car can tow more than a F350 turbodiesel with that crazy amount of torque
