For starters it's street legal and meets emission standards. Technically you can get 10,000 HP out of a V8 that is in a top fuel dragster. Engines producing that amount of power are barely good for a 1/4 a mile and are rebuilt for every run. It's kind of like, do you want a PC that will be reliable 24/7/365 and play all your games without crashing, or are you trying to break world records with a overclocked CPU being cooled by liquid nitrogen that can barely even stay stable enough to boot up.

Looks far better than the ugly baby before it though.

From what I remember from an old Top Gear segment, the speed is limited by the tires, not the engine. I would expect this car to suffer from the same issue. Yes, the car can go faster, but the tires cannot withstand the top speed of the car. On the old Top Gear episode, they were able to get the car about 2-3mph more than what was listed. I could be wrong but that's what I remember.

Pfffft only 500 kph? Fastest commercially selling car maybe.

Break the speed of sound like Thrust SSC and then we'll talk thumb.gif

To put that into perspective, a 747 lifts off the ground at 180 mph.
But...no...lift is not dependent on speed...nothing to do with cars...dammit editors, you could've made literally any other comparison doh.gif

Not sure how they did it but they somehow managed to make this one more ugly than the last one.

The funny thing about the Bugatti Veyron was that it actually depreciated in value while a lot of these cars appreciate. For example, the Ferrari Enzo now goes for about double it's MSRP at auction, and the newer LaFerrari which were sold at $1.4 million have only really been seen for sale at over $4 million.
Koenigsegg made fewer than 10 One:1. Bugatti will like make 400-500 Chiron if they go with a similar number to the Veyron.

This is correct, The Bugatti Veyron can only drive at those high speeds for no more then 15 minutes before the tires are done. This is also why so many modern cars have their top speed governed. It's mostly so you don't exceed the speed rating on your tires and you have a catastrophic blowout.

Can't the tyres simply be made from tougher material? I mean if they're going to design a car worth millions, might as well give it tyres made of...dunno, some ultra-modern stuff that can withstand the friction!
