Powered by an 8L quad-turbocharged W16 unit, the Bugatti Veyron used to be the car with the fastest speed which can reach 253 mph. The Veyron Super Sport is even more impressive with its top speed of 267 mph.
The carmaker can still have reasons to be proud of its used-to-be fastest model title
The eye-watering price tag of $2million is just a quarter of what it costs Volkswagen to produce one unit of its Veyron, making the loss for each one up to $6.25million (~N2.25b) and add up to a total loss of $2.3 billion (~N828b). At this rate, Bugatti Veyron tops the list of the worst loss-making models in Europe for the last decade.
