The Veyron features an 8.0 liter, quad-turbocharged, W16 cylinder engine that is equal to two narrow-angle V8 engines. Each of the cylinders boasts four valves making a sum of sixty four. The engine is fed by four turbochargers and relocates 7,993 cubic centimeters (487.8 Cu in), with a square 86 by 86 mm (3.4 by 3.4 in) bore and stroke. Bugatti widely reinforced all drive gears in order to transfer the massive forces coming on account of the additional power.
The car is known for its speed. In fact, it is named as the world’s fastest car. Its top speed is planned at 350 km/h (220 mph). Once the car reaches 220 km/h (140 mph), hydraulics reduce the speed of the car up to a ground clearance of approximately 9 cm (3.5 in). The wing and spoiler also deploy all at once. During this entire managing process, a down force of 3,425 newtons is provided by the wing that holds the car to the road.
The estimated price of this car is around $2.5 million.
