Grand Vitesse: $2.5 million, every penny

The latest of the Veyron ups the ante on power a bit and on by a lot.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) There are those for whom a $1.5 million Bugatti 16.4 Grand Sport may not be quite enough. For them, offers the Grand Sport with 1,200 horsepower and a tag about a million dollars

If I had that much to spare and I had to between a seventh vacation another Jeff Koons for my backyard or a Veyron, I’d the Veyron.

The Veyron, you see, is an incredible tool. It is:

A work of art – its elegant yet muscular shape, the is pleasing to the eye and elicits a subtle mix of not least among them

A thrill ride – four digits worth of to play with, the Veyron a reasonable substitute for a roller It’s not often you feel like this without the Air Force.

A car – Yes, you can it. It has a steering wheel, gear brake and gas pedal. And, some of those discount-priced exotics — such as or Lamborghini — everything’s in the place.

No special lessons needed to first gear or park.

The Grand Sport Vitesse has all of plus 200 more horsepower and body made entirely ultra-expensive carbon fiber.

One pretty much tells the The Bugatti Veyron Grand Vitesse can go from zero to 100 per hour and back to zero in 9.5 Some cars can’t merge onto the highway fast.

If you want to know it feels like to get to over 100 per hour really fast, I can you. During a recent drive — where the danger posed was to myself, a representative in the passenger seat and million worth of car — I down on the gas pedal while about 20 miles an hour.

The sensation was, surprisingly, not at all Do that in most cars over 500 horsepower, let alone than double that, and would be lots of noise, some smoke and the steering would suddenly become an beast intent on guiding you to doom.

In the Vitesse there is speed, lots and lots of Steer as you would normally the trees rush by faster and and you experience the sensation of a quickly stack of cinder blocks up on your chest.

In less time than it you read that last you’re over 100 miles per But you’re probably not looking at the because your eyes are on the vanishing strip of open ahead of you.

You won’t notice how exorbitantly you’ve exceeded the speed limit you move your foot to the brake pedal and take a to glance down. That’s you see the speedometer needle sweeping downward past 110 or 120.

The is has a really nice sort of to it with good road The ride is a little firm, but not horrible. Despite all the carbon the Vitesse still feels a pretty heavy car but with all power, the pounds melt as soon as you step on the gas.

There is still the question of though. While a regular if such a word can be applied — Veyron is worth penny, this car is double the And, really, when already got 1,000 horsepower, do you 200 more?

Will you even it?

Of course, that’s one of those rational questions that apply when you’re talking about spending a million dollars on an automobile.

Here we’re really in the of art collecting more than car If a Picasso painting. which even be used to go get groceries, is $40 million, surely something as as a Bugatti Veyron Grand Vitesse is worth $2.5
