Bugatti Veyron Engine Picture from MotoIQ

in Gerlach_Nevada

Eric Hsu posted up a picture of a Bugatti Veyron engine with the heads removed.  Interesting looking engine. 1001 hp, quad turbo. I consider this to be the fastest production car in the world, no matter the couple “production car” claims of higher speeds.  As you can see in the above video, a 480 hp Nissan GT-R doesn’t stand a chance against a Veyron. However for $80,000 vs $1,500,000 you have some change left over if you purchase a GT-R.  The Veyron is just something that demands respect.
