No matter how old you are, you never lose that need for speed.
The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4, designed by Volkswagen, holds two world titles: It’s the most expensive car at $1.25 million but what your inner eight-year-old will be more impressed with is that it’s the fastest road-legal car in the world.
Named after French race-car driver Pierre Veyron, this car can go from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds. The Super Sport edition can reach a top speed of 267 mph, and is Guiness-certified as the fastest car on the road.
Jeremy Clarkson, host of the BBC show “Top Gear,” called the car a “road rocket.”“From behind the wheel of a Veyron, France is the size of a small coconut,” Clarkson said. “I cannot tell you how fast I crossed it the other day. Because you simply wouldn’t believe me.”
