One car that is favored by the high and mighty in the higher echelons of society is the Bugatti Veyron. One thing worthy noting is that, this car is not only the world’s fastest car, but also the most expensive and bestselling car in the world. This beautiful car is assembled at Molsheim in Alsace (France) by Bugatti Automobiles in collaboration with The Volkswagen Group. This car which measures 4,462 mm length by 1,998 mm width by 1,159 mm height and weighs 1,888 kg is a 2-door coupé with a targa top.

World’s Fastest Car

The chariot is a display of power on wheels with its powerful 8.0 litre, sixteen cylinder turbocharged 1,001 metric horsepower engine which enables it to sustain a permanent all-wheel drive through its 7-speed transmission gear system and can attain a top speed of 431.07 km/h (Bugatti Veyron Super Sport).

The manufacturer claims that it can accelerate from a speed of 80 km/h to 312 km/h in 22 seconds and also decelerate from 400 km/h to a standstill in 10 seconds within 500 meters. This top speed is however limited electronically by the producer to 415 km/h to protect the car’s tires. At this speed, a lot of heat is generated which led to the installation of a total of ten radiators with 3 for air-to-liquid intercoolers, 3 for engine radiators, 1 for air conditioning, 1 for the oil radiator, 1 for the differential oil radiator and 1for the engine oil radiator (Most modern vehicles have only one radiator).

The Bugatti Veyron is acclaimed as the world’s fastest road-legal car. At a speed of 220 km/h, the car’s hydraulics are automatically designed to lower the car’s ground clearance to an average of 9cm (Its normal ground clearance is 12.5 cm) which simultaneously deploys a wing and a spoiler to improve the vehicle’s maneuverability that helps to keep the vehicle on the road. For top speed driving, a special key is flipped on the left of the seat which checks car’s conditions before retracting the rear spoiler while shutting the front air ducts. The ground clearance then automatically drops to 6.5cm (almost hugging the ground for greater stability) before the car accelerates towards the 400km top speed where it consumes 45,000 litres of air during each minute (It is claimed that a normal man uses this quantity every 4 days).

This admirable car which has customizable interiors and exterior colours was designed by JozefKaban of the Volkswagen group and dedicated to Pierre Veyron (A French racing driver) has in the past been named Car of the Decade (2000–2009) by Top Gear (BBC TV).
