Although the latest version of the 2013 Bugatti Veyron will be available to the public, it exemplifies an exclusive class of cars designed primarily to break world records and build prestige for its manufacturer. Only two of these cars have been registered since 2008. The new Veyron was introduced at the 2012 Geneva auto show and was rated with 1,184 horsepower, 1,106 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 258 mph, making it the world’s fastest road car on the market. New technology has provided enhanced aerodynamics, lighter-weight materials and better handling, making it clear that the engineers have prioritized these attributes at the expense of fuel efficiency.
