The production of the world’s fastest ever cars began in 2005 and was powered by quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16 engine producing 987bhp. With the introduction of Super Sport in 2010, the supercar produced 1184bhp of power and 1,500Nm of torque.
The Super Sport is regarded as the fastest ever production car at 267.856mph for four years. However, it was surpassed by the Hennessey Venom GT that was introduced in 2014. As Bugatti claims, the average price of a Veyron sold on February 23, is £1.7 million (includes optional extras).
The supercar maker is in plans to debut the second generation Veyron sometime in 2016 and it will produce more power than before.
