While the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport's performance credentials are truly otherworldly, perhaps what is more interesting are the realities associated with traveling at 258 mph and what the Veyron needs to do in order to achieve such an incredible top speed:

• At its electronically limited top speed of 258 mph, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport consumes fuel at a rate of 1.7 gallons a minute. At that rate, the 26.4-gallon tank will run out of fuel in 10 minutes.

• At its top speed of 258 mph, the Super Sport's 10 radiators will breathe in over 8,000 pounds of air in an hour.

• While the Super Sport's special Michelin tires are designed to last 10,000 miles in normal driving conditions, the tires will only last 15 minutes at the car's 258-mph top speed.

These mind-boggling statistics only tell a snippet of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport's story. It is a cost-no-object genius piece that boasts absurd figures; it was developed more closely with the aerospace industry than with the automotive industry; and on paper it reads like a car designer's most fevered and thrilling dreams. It pushed all the boundaries of what was thought to be possible with an automobile, and it shattered numerous records.

As a "Super Sport," it has 200 more horsepower, larger turbos, and two additional fuel pumps, and it is 100 pounds lighter and slightly re-styled, with larger, re-shaped intakes. The Super Sport also boasts distinctive NACA ducts on the roof, replacing the more traditional air intakes fitted to its roof. It retains chassis number 300 and would thus be the last of the coupes, which were limited to 300 units.
