    Bugatti debuted its most powerful supercar at Pebble Beach on Friday: a $10 million,1,600 horsepower throwback to the ’90s that sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 2.4 seconds...The company is making just 10 of the Centodiecis, which feature Bugatti’s 8.0-liter W16 engine...The Centodieci races from zero...to 124 mph in 6.1 seconds and to 186 mph in 13.1 seconds. Like its cousin the Chiron, Bugatti electronically limited the top speed of the car to 236 mph.

    A World War II Spitfire had a 1,000 hp engine and weighed 7767 lbs, giving it a weight to HP ration of 7.8:1.

    The Centodiecis has a weight to HP ratio of 2.5:1

    Put wings on this sucker and it will shoot down Germans!

    An extraordinarily clear example of modern folly.

    I think the term he was looking for was "raging imbecility".

    /—-/ I guess if you’re worth 5 billion, 10 million for a car would be like you or me buying a Chevy.

    The only way this car could be any cooler would be if it ran exclusively on whale oil.

    It's an option, but it's worth it.
