if you're gona for perfomance you need to get rid of those perfomance robbing things like AC, stereo, roof, doors, trunk, hood, etc and get one of these.

strap a seat, handle bars, a transmitions, a gas tank, and some tires onto a 8.3 liter V10.

0-60 mph: 2.5 seconds (est.)
Top Speed: 300+ mph (est.)

Shiltz, thats a Chrysler prototype i think, it was build with the Dodge Viper engine, i think it is a V8 not V10.

its an 8 liter V10 as shiltz said.

the veyron has 4 turbos in that W16, i wonder how many HPs would you get if you put some turbos on a McLaren F1 LM.

The real top speed is about 120mph because after that it gets so unstable you can't ride it. They've tried to do it but they can't. That is the exact reason it didn't even go into limited production. It's unridable.

It's a Dodge Tomahawk btw, so technically it is a Chrysler concept.

Some pics:

It will never get made. Save up for a 800hp+ Koenigsegg. It's actually going into production (they already have a ~600hp version out) and top speed is estimated at 240mph (last top speed run got rained out and peaked at 224mph).

Yes sir. That Bugatti is hideous. They could've at least picked one color for the entire car.

I saw this car in person ( I touched it) The one I saw was Navy and drak-blue
It is displayed in the VW cnter in Berlin
This car is as wide as a bus and no higher than my navel ( im 6.2 ) !!
It DOES have a 16 cilynder. However It looked like it was a V engine.
YOu cant really tell from the posted pics but the engine is exposed between those massive silver intakes and it looks like a V engine to me... PLus the plaque detailing the car's specs read V16 1001 hp...
Bugatti is a partner brand of VW just like Bentley so the W seems logical, although the VW Phaeton is the only car I know that currently boasts a W engine. Maybe there is a more recent model than the one I saw this summer.
I talked to the selesperson at the Bugatti desk...he doesnt get much action...it sells for 2,000,000+ Euro !!
i asked him to fire up the engine but he sayd he couldnt (damn)

anyways, nice car.

There's a Passat with a 4.0L W8 engine ;-)

It won't ever come out if they can't solve the aerodynamics. Currently it is just not stable enough at 220mph+ There are also some issues with the transmission. VW said it's getting delivered next year but that's what they said last year too.

Hmm, any run of the mill porsche 911 is stable at 220 with stock aerodynamics... if the engine is souped enough to get it moving that fast

Bugatti sux0rs.
