02 May Have You Driven a Bugatti Lately?
You could take 2033 average summer vacations. You could buy 37 2013 Ford F-350 pickups. You could eat 5333 dinners at Masa Restaurant in New York City’s Time Warner Center, the world’s most expensive restaurant, or buy 192 Smart Cars. You could do any of these things… or you could buy just one Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
At $2.4 Million dollars, it is the world’s most expensive production car according to www.thesupercars.org. Sure that’s a ton of money but let’s talk about what your money, which would take the average American 100,755 hours to earn, would get you.
If you’re going to drop that kind of coin on a car, you’re going to need to get some serious work done so you’re going to want to get around quickly. No worries here. With an 8.0L W-16 Cylinder motor, the Veyron goes 0-60MPH in 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 253.2MPH so you should wrap up the weekly trip the grocery store with plenty of time left to pick up the dry cleaning. The speed is electronically limited so as to not exceed the capabilities of the tires but it registered 267MPH in a 2010 test run.
Another upside to this gem is you would earn a pile of points on your gas card. When it’s running full speed, it gets an economical 4.82 miles per gallon and in town the points really start to add up with a 2.88 mile per gallon average.
When you’re ready to reward yourself, go ahead and splurge for the Veyron. Or, you could take the family to New York on vacation, dine at Masa, cancel your flight home and pick up an F-350. When you got home you’d still have to drop by the bank and deposit the remaining $2.33 Million dollars you had left in your pocket.
