The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is one of the most expensive supercar that you can buy on the market today. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is built by Volkswagen AG subsidiary Bugatti Automobiles SAS at their headquarters in Château St. Jean in Molsheim (Alsace, France) and is sold under the illustrious Bugatti marque. Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 was named Car of the Decade (2000–2009) by Top Gear.

The car has a proven top speed of over 429 km/h (267 mph). Bugatti is the fastest accelerating car reaching 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds. The car is named after racing driver Pierre Veyron, who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti firm. The Bugatti Veyron has a W16 engine—16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders.

The Veyron's principal designer was Hartmut Warkuss, and the exterior was designed by Jozef Kabaň of Volkswagen. A number of exceptional variants have been created. In December 2010, Bugatti started allowing prospective customers the ability to customize exterior and interiors colors.

The Veyron has a 16 cylinder engine. The engine is served by four bi-turbochargers and displaces 7,993 cubic centimeters (487.8 cu in), with a square 86 by 86 mm (3.4 by 3.4 in) bore and stroke.

The transmission is a dual-clutch direct-shift gearbox computer-controlled automatic with seven gear ratios, with magnesium paddles behind the steering wheel and a shift time of less than 150 milliseconds. A replacement transmission for the Veyron costs just over €120,000.

It also has permanent four-wheel drive using the Haldex Traction system. It uses special Michelin PAX run flat tires, which reportedly cost €25,000 per set. The tyres can be removed from the rims only in France, a service which reportedly costs €70,000.

The Veyron engine produces 1,001 metric horsepower (736 kW; 987 bhp) of motive power and generates 1,250-newton meters (922 ft·lbf) of torque.
