The Veyron is the quickest production car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) with an estimated time of 2.5 seconds, according to the manufacturer. It reaches 60 mph in approximately 2.46 seconds. It also reaches 200 and 300 km/h (124 and 186 mph) in 7.3 and 16.7 seconds respectively. This makes the Veyron the quickest accelerating production car in history. It also consumes more fuel than any other production car, using 40.4 L/100 km (5.82 mpg) in city driving and 24.1 L/100 km (10 mpg) in combined cycle. At full throttle, it uses more than 125 L/100 km (2.1 mpg), which would empty its 100 L (26.4 gallon) fuel tank in just 12.5 minutes.


VIPER Says it's faster in Quarter Mile? Faster than a 1.7 million dollar coupe? Hmm.

Yea I love that car, can you imagine a fully carpeted jet engine is what it's like, CD Stereo all the luxuries of a Cadillac/Ford Continental with the motor of a Hot Sports Car. What a ride. 252 MPH / 407 KPH I would love to drive that car, heck I would even love to ride in that car.

Lex you got to get one, what a chic magnet car that would be.

HI Lex,

That's good ole USofA Automobile Engines for you, That Viper would cream the Bugatti in a Quarter Mile with out hardly even trying.

I used to go to the Drag strip for years and I have seen some of the fastest cars go down that quarter mile strip and do that run in under 6 Seconds and at a speed of 240 mph.

Now that is fast. I have seen intense burnouts from behind some of those cars where the flames would literally shoot out from behind the rear tires, you can even see the tire stretch like a huge set of hands twisting the rubber on the tires one direction to where there would show up creases in the tires.

Going to see the Top Fuel Funny Cars and Rails run at the Drag Strip is one of the most exhilarating pulse pumping events ever.

If you ever get a chance to, I would suggest going to see one of those kinds of races, don't forget to bring a set of ear plugs though because at the Drag strip it gets very loud. They run straight pipes out of those engines. LOL

Hey Phil: I would like to go to a drag strip and see the races and smell the napom or rocket fuel! When I was a young tiche, I liked B.B. Mulligan, the guy who raced dragsters. He had a really cool rail; yup a REALLY cool rail till it flipped over and that was the BB's last race. I was in 6th grade.

Like you were talking before about the chick magnet, I could just see some guy pulling up to some babe blowing her ear drums out! It woyld get their attention!

But the Bugatti, pull up in one of those and not only do you have enough gas to drive 200 miles, but there is a trunk, CD player, GPS, weapons system, and finally, a mechanic will fly to your location within 24 hours to work on your car. The Bugatti purrs like a pussy cat; women can relate . ;D

Hey, love the car, but. . . I'm a truck guy.

Still, the speed must've been a rush.
