2009 Bugatti Veyron 16.4
When confronted by the unrivaled engineering masterpiece that is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, you could consider its paradigm-shifting technical accomplishments such as the 8-liter 16-cylinder quad-turbocharged engine. Or the laundry list of records it shattered, being the fastest, quickest, and most powerful production car ever. Or you could mull over the fact that despite having more than 1,000 horsepower, twelve radiators, and a highly-advanced all-wheel drive system, the Veyron is as pleasing to the eye as it is painful to the wallet. That’s because it’s also one of the most expensive cars ever to be offered to the public, at more than a million dollars each, and Bugatti isn’t making a profit on any of them. You’ll need a seriously long straight to appreciate the Veyron’s unprecedented 253 mph top speed, making Forza 4’s meticulously rendered Nürburgring straight a perfect place to test your nerves as you peg the accelerator and crest 150 mph in less than 11 seconds. That being said, you won’t need anything special to appreciate how the Veyron reset the bar in hypercar performance, style, and sheer engineering prowess.
