1,001hp at EyesOn Design: the 2007 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4
When most people talk about the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4, the first thing that comes to mind is the fact that it uses a 16 cylinder engine with 4 turbochargers to churn out 1,001 horsepower to all four wheels. When introduced, the Veyron was the undisputed fastest production car in the world and although the power output is amazing, what is even more amazing is that fact that this road-going, street legal machine is capable of eclipsing the 250 mile per hour mark in full street trim (253.52mph to be exact).
Every inch of 2007 Bugatti Veyron has been designed to provide unparalleled aerodynamics to allow this hyper car to reach its 253mph top speed but while there are lots of cars in the world capable of reaching these speeds – few of them are street legal and none of them look as good as the Veyron. It should be kept in mind that with a sticker price around $1.7 million US dollars, it is not only one of the fastest cars in the world but it must also be one of the most luxurious; inside and out. This is a car that just oozes charisma and even if you didn’t know that it had a 1,001 horsepower W16 engine tucked between the rear quarter panels, it is very clear that this car is made to go very, very fast. However, Bugatti was able to design the exterior to offer unique, stunning lines without compromising one ounce of aerodynamic perfection and the result is one of the most amazing cars in the history of the automobile industry.
