    Bugatti Test

    0 to 60 mph in UNDER 2.5 seconds.
    Beyond outstanding brakes!
    3 mpg at 200mph plus, can drain its tank in 15 minutes.
    Ridiculously easy to drive,mountains of traction.
    Contact UPS for baggage transfers.

    Makes all other cars seem stupefyingly slow and antique.

    In other words, you could drive it at that speed (>200mph) for only about 50 miles, before you would need to pull over to fill 'er up. But still, that would be a fun 15 minutes.

    Re: Bugatti Test

    I ve also read in Sport Auto a test about Veyron.
    They attend the journalist session in Italia as far I can remember, in Sicilia. There was 5 veyron available the evening, and only 4 the next morning because of failure, and then only 3 after Breakfast.....
    The two last ones were on the road, and their car had after some kilometers some strange lights on the display. One more time failure....
    They said the car is incredible, but they had to come back to the hotel with Bugatti assistance ....
    Perhaps extraordinary car, but also not really ready to sell.....

    So, we should be able to pass it while it is filling up. And if we go for a longer trip, other cars will arrived FASTER!

    I'd take a Manthey M700. The AWD version has a top speed of 350 km/h (gearing limited) with a peak consumption of 31 L/100 km. If you take a GT2 and modify it at Manthey and install different gear ratios, the car should attain 370 km/h. With a 90 liter tank that would amount to about 300 km on one tank. The Veyron surely can't beat that

    Re: Bugatti Test

    Bugatti should supply a air refueling service like they use with jetfighters. It would have to be a plane keep up anyway.
