    How many km do you need to hit the Veyron's current top speed? Its speed is achievable in only very few places already.

    This all just kinda reinforces the fact that top speed is meaningless.

    Probably gets up to speed quickly enough, but has to stop at a gas station to refuel with 100 liters every 10 minutes... or 72 kilometers.

    oh ok - my bad . 2 mph could be done with a favourable wind . the last 5% is always going to build very slowly

    your HP is just about meeting the force it cannot overcome . at the VW ring , they are sitting on 200 km/h on the bank , then hit top speed about 2/3 down the straight

    but the thing is a monster , its 100 - 200 mp/h accelleration is the stuff of dreams

    I think a VW return to Formula 1 under the Bugatti brand would be more worthy a cause than the the Veyron. And some proper sports cars like the early Bugatti's would be much more suitable than the pseudo luxury cars they are gunning for.

    The proper Bugatti did grand tourers as well as luxury cars.

    yes i think they should start to make other car other than the veyron. the Company may start to make a profit then.

    Doesn't VW already turn a profit? What's the news with the baby veyron that had 4 doors?

    New 270 mph veyron

    Bugatti/VW spent around a decade making the Veyron and fulfilling the ~255 mph claim. I have trouble believing they can just tack on some power and aero bits to reach 270. Going from 250 to 270 will take something like 600 hp.

    This is the internet, facts have no bearing here.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.
