Yes, you read the title of this post correctly, the Bugatti Veyron is US$1.2 million, and there is indeed a waiting list. You can read the article about this here -> http://news.en.autos.sympatico.msn.ca/article.aspx?cp-documentid=469263 To sum things up... They had planned an initial run of 50 cars. That would come to sales totalling US$60 million. They seem, however, to have greatly underestimated demand, because they have had to up production to 70 units a year, and there are already firm orders (I'm guessing that means that people have already parted with their cash) for over 70 cars. What I found most interesting, is that this car is aimed at the US market, specifically New York "and, of course, Southern California" (I like the way the said "of course" when talking about Southern California, but I suppose that's an entirely different thread). They were basically saying that the European and Middle Eastern market is not their focus. What do you get for US$1.2 million? Well the car is made from carbon fibre (read extremely expensive, but also extremely light). The above article was a little light on technical details, so I did some digging on Google and found this -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugatti_Veyron_16.4 To sum up... The engine (this is the part, I'm sure, that everyone here is interested in) is a 8.0 L quad-turbo W-16 that produces 1,001 hp (I remember a few years ago a Cadillac prototype, the Sixteen, produced 1,000 hp, nice too, too bad they didn't make it. I digress) and torque is 922 ft-LB (approximately 50% more than a Bentley Arnage). An interesting quote, "with a proven top speed of over 400 km/h". Just a guess here, but Germany is probably the only place in the world you can legally experience that. Coincidentally, I was surprised to find out that not all of the autobahn is unrestricted. Oh well, at least certain part of it you can enjoy at full speed. In a world where people can pay over US$30 million for a house. Just today, they were talking on the radio how the most expensive house here in Canada, ever listed (and is just came on the market too), is C$45 million (US$40.54 million). What's US$1.2 million for a car? I wonder how long until we see cars that are north of US$3 million. Whenever that is, I am sure they will be amazing. Will they be worth the money? That's an entirely subjective thing, but I'm sure the owners will indeed say yes.
