^^^ not to mention most will claim peak #'s while the Veyron produced thoes #'s throughout the RPM range, do you know of what kind ot TQ it also pumps out? Also around 1000 ftlbs and not just @ one time, throughout the rev range as well, this is why it cost 1.5million, parts are able to handle this TQ & H.P. without falling apart & still be reliable for 20 + yrs which no other manufacturer can do yet...

Actually it was a 1.5L M12 engine producing over 1400hp (the dyno cut off at 1400hp) driven by Nelson Piquet in 1985.
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. It’s habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."
