Every once in a while you come across something that is so luxuriously superior and elegantly sexy that you can’t keep you mind off of it. I’m referring to something that is so extravagantly beautiful and dynamically robust that it deserves all of the hype that surrounds it. I’m talking about a car that has been described as “the fastest most powerful and most expensive road car the world has ever seen”.  If you still don’t know what I’m talking about then allow me to introduce you to a super sportscar which has been praised as “the greatest automobile ever made”, the Bugatti Veyron.  Before you continue onwards I should mention that if your financial standing is not approaching “island buying” status then the only relationship you will ever have with this car is the same type the deaf have with music, none whatsoever. With that being said I would recommend that you STOP! reading NOW because the Veyron is so painfully untouchable that it’s completely pointless teasing yourself any further.

In 1998, under CEO Ferdinand Piëch, Volkswagon AG acquired Bugatti and their designers were encouraged to restore the legacy and tradition that was created under it’s  founder Ettore Bugatti. The project was headed by chief designer Hartmut Warkus along with exterior designer Jozef Kaban. In 2000 after years of tremendous efforts spent on concepts and revisions the utterly stunning Bugatti Veyron 16.4 was introduced to the world however due to executive changes in Volkswagon AG the Veyron underwent even more redesigns until finally making its way into the market in 2005.

The Bugatti Veyron, which was named after French race car driver Pierre Veyron, is a 2 seater 4 wheel drive carbon fiber bodied super coupe that comes equipped with a massive quad-turbocharged, 8 liter, 16-cylinder engine that has the mechanical muscle needed to produce 1,001 horsepower. The 7 speed transmission & AMD system controls the Veyron which has a 0-60 time of 2.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 253.8 mph. The Veyron also includes 10 cooling radiators, a retractable spoiler used for air brakes, and a gorgeous leather interior.

Alright folks lets get focused because you know that it’s time to get realistic.  I’m sure that you all are well aware that this is not your average car and you’re going to need more than an average paying job if the faintest idea of  ” I want one” ever tip-toes into your head. Not to mention the fact that the Veyron is highly exclusive with Bugatti making only 300. Rich is an understatement, you’re going to have to be nothing less than wealthy if you plan on getting involved with this car in the current economic environment. So if you’re an ordinary person who receives an ordinary yearly income then this car is simply out of your league and I would advice you to get a little “Veyron Amnesia”. Because the only way you are ever going to physically own this vehicle is if you build an innovative incredibly popular online multimedia social networking website that attracts Google who ends up buying your business for billions of dollars. Unless you create something of that magnitude I’m sorry to say this but you are NEVER GONNA GET THIS CAR. Price Tag: The Bugatti Veyron ranges from the base price of $1,500,000 to as much as $3.8 million.
