Bugatti Veyron 16.4-Not Your Typical 'Bug'!

Luxury Cars: After seven years of experimentation, the wait is over and the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 has busted out of the lab and on to the streets. This is the fastest and the most powerful production car ever assembled. Faster than you can say Mr. Ettore Bugatti, the 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is going 60 mph plus. It goes from zero to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and accelerates at over 120 mph in less than eight seconds! And if you got a minute, it tops out at over 250 mph in 56 seconds. If you buy one on May 13, you could drive directly off the showroom to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and try to qualify for the pole position of this year's Indy 500. However, do keep in mind that the rookie orientation program begins May 7, and the actual race day is May 28.

The 4,200-pound coupe has a seven-gear manual drive or a Formula 1 gearbox, fully automatic dual-clutch transmission that powers its 1,001-horsepower, 16-cylinder, 8-liter engine. And it can be driven either at famous racetracks or in everyday traffic-just like any other roadster that costs $1.1 million. A total of 300 Veyron 16.4 is being produced in Molsheim, France, for 2006. Since Volkswagen acquired the Bugatti brand name approximately five years ago, the Veyron 16.4 is definitely the most powerful "Bug" in the world.

The vehicle made its U.S. debut at the L.A. Auto Show in January and will be shown at the Geneva Motorshow Show from February 28 to March 12.
