Background
The Bugatti Veyron remains one of the most amazing cars of all time: still the world's fastest car, capable of 253mph and powered by an epic 1000bhp W16. There have been more special editions than you'll find on your average Mondeo - with open-top and coupe versions, 'regular' and go-faster Supersport models.

60sec road test
Nothing on earth can prepare you quite for your first go in a Veyron. The brainchild of Volkswagen grandee Ferdinand Piech, the Bug is the epitome of excess all areas. With its 8.0-litre W16 engine, performance is exceptional; even the earliest, weediest models produced 987bhp at 6000rpm and 921lb ft at 2000rpm - enough for 0-62mph in 2.8sec and 254mph flat-out. You read that right. But it's the way the Veyron does it which is so captivating. With four-wheel drive and a twin-clutch transmission your gran could master, this supercar can tootle as well as tango. It's all so easy... And yet when you prod the loud pedal, the world in front of you goes into overdrive and you're reeling in the horizon like you just hit fast-forward by mistake. Flat out, you'll be lucky to average 3mpg. So it'll take just 65 minutes to empty its 100-litre tank. But then if you can afford a Bugatti, that's hardly going to cause a headache.
