Bugatti Veyron at top speed on Top Gear

Some interesting video of the Top Gear guys running a Bugatti Veyron all the way up to its maximum speed of 253 mph.

Interesting facts:

  • To safely get up to the top speed they needed a straightaway of 5.5 miles.
  • At top speed, the tire lifetime is only 15 minutes.
  • No matter on the short tire lifetime, because the fuel runs out at 12 minutes.
  • To dissipate the massive amount of heat generated by the 16 cylinder, quad turbo engine, the car has 10 radiators.
  • A separate key is needed to put the car into maximum performance mode.
