Photos: Bugatti Veyron 16.4
Ran into this amazing machine last saturday in Amsterdam. The color is brilliant, not many people who purchase one of these cars choose this color! The car is owned by one of Hollands biggest Ferrari collectors. His garage exceeds about 26 Ferraris, a Mercedes McLaren SLR 722 and this Bugatti Veyron 16.4. Rumours are that the owner will buy one or two more. Pricetag in Holland: 1.8 million euros including VAT and luxury tax.
The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most extravagant and advanced cars ever built. The massive 8.0 liter W16 engine has four turbochargers and creates a stunning amount of 1001 bhp. 0 - 100 kilometers an hour takes only 2.5 seconds and to reach its topspeed of 407 kilometers an hour, you need a special key. The Veyron carries a total of ten radiators, three of them are for the engine cooling system and two for the airconditioning.
Our minister of Finance must love such people who 'donate' 451.000 euros of luxury tax to the State Treasury!
