Performance figures being quoted claim the 2016 Veyron will generate as much as 1,500bhp and will be able to reach a top speed of 290mph with a blistering 0-62mph time of 2.3 seconds based on computer simulations.

Each unit costs £4m to build but the car is sold for just 1/4 of the price, its actually a bargin. But you will need deep pockets to run it, yearly tax is quoted at 1000 euros.
