Bugatti Veyron: It’s an aero-engineering artwork on four wheels.

And it’s only a few lucky people, 300 approximately, who will be able to own this completely hand- built machine at starting prices of around $1,800,000.
This beauty takes nothing more than 3.0 seconds to reach speeds of 60 mph. It’s got a 12 cylinder power packed motor with twin turbochargers.
