A Toy For The Birthday Boys

If she really loved you…
She’d get you something that goes from 0 to 100 mph then back to 0 in 9.9 seconds

Not surprisingly, given that it has a 987bhp 16-cylinder engine and a top speed of 400 kmh, the UKP 880,000 Bugatti Veyron has blitzed everything else on four wheels by a massive margin – what is surprising is that it has also blitzed a credible representative of the fastest of the two wheel brigade as well, managing to beat a Suzuki GSX-R1000 superbike by nearly a full second.
But the 1890kg £880,000 Bugatti ripped through the gears to hit 60mph in 2.8sec and 100mph in an astonishing 5.5sec. It then stopped in just 3.4sec, giving a 0-100-0mph time of 9.9sec.
Not only is the Bugatti faster than the Suzuki, it creates more g-force at maximum acceleration than you’d experience in an F-16 jet fighter at take off or when skydiving.

It can be yours for $1.3 million.
If she cares, that is.

    I want it for myself.

    I suppose I should have added that the 0-100-0 time is one where the drivers survives…

  3. “Could give a rat’s ass.”

  4. I wish I had the money to get that car.
    I don’t care about the feckin’ car, I just want the money.

  5. I’m with mr. Summers. If I got the $$’s I would give a rat’s ass.

    The Gixxer’s main problems are twofold (besides only having a quarter of the number of cylinders), it has only one driving wheel (the Bug is all-wheel drive like a Toyota Sienna minivan), and the other non-driving wheel is pointing mostly skyward during the acceleration phase, producing a high drag coefficient.

  7. (Hey, DC!! Someone showed up on the tires post arguing for those air filters you despise…)

    Heh, I would go back and leave a comment but it’s not my blog to start a big off-topic argument. I found the post on rec.moto.dirt referencing K&N filters’ poor performance, it’s actually all over Usenet and it’s fairly conclusive, thanks George. 😉
