Let’s review that number again: 1,200 horsepower. It gets there with the help of a 7,993 cc DOHC 64-valve intercooled W-16 engine with four turbochargers and a seven-speed, dual-clutch semi-automatic sequential transmission.
Top speed? 258 mph. Oh, the 300 chassis (of 300) is one of only eight US-specification Veyron 16.4 Super Sports built.
It’s also only gone 308 miles from new. Why? Well, at it’s top speed of 258 mph, it consumes 1.7 gallons of fuel a minute, which means it’ll run out of fuel in ten minutes. You’d also need a new set of tires if you did that—even though its special Michelin tires will last at 10,000 in normal driving conditions, they’ll only last fifteen minutes at 258 mph.
Still. 258 mph.
