The Bugatti Veyron is considered the second most fastest car that is being manufactured, which means for those that follow the racing world, this is the car that they watch. The car has been in production for quite a while, the most notable achievement that the car has received was winning the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939. The car is built by Bugatti Automobiles SAS, which is a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG, meaning that the car does utilize German engineering, some of the best in the world.
Another notable aspect is that the car is considered one of the most powerful cars on the market as well. The car can reach sixty miles per hour in 2.6 seconds, which as many point out far bypasses those cars that promise the fastest acceleration that are on the market. The top speed of the Bugatti Veyron is around 253.2 miles per hour, which is an amazing speed for any car to reach. The reason for this performance statistics is simply due to the sheer size of the engine. The engine is a 16 cylinder engine that has four turbochargers which help add to the speed that the car can reach. Because of the extensive size of this engine, there are ten radiators on the car that are working to keeping it cooled down and from overheating. This is an immense number of radiators, however are necessary in order to make sure that the car runs as it should. However, not all of these radiators are dedicated to the engine cooling aspect. For example, there are two radiators for the cooling system, one radiator for the spoiler, as well as one radiator for the transmission oil.
Since this car is pretty unique, it is not surprise that the car has specifically designed tires in order to accommodate the fast speeds that it can reach. These tires are designed by Michelin, and are flat run tires. According to The Bugatti Blog, these tires are supposed to be able to not wear down due to driving these fast speeds, however, street wise, most people will never reach the speed that the Veyron can actually rise.
Price wise, the Bugatti Veyron is going to run around $1.7 million dollars, which means that this is not the car that you are going to see driving around on many roads in the United States. There may be a few of these located in Hollywood, where movie stars do drive the car. Which gas mileage wise, it is understandable while only the rich and famous drive these since it is estimated that the Veyron only gets eight miles per gallon driving in city mode.

The Jaguar XKR is part of the Jaguar XK series which was first introduced to the public in 1996, and still continues to be popular. These cars are very similar to the Aston Martin since they all utilize the same format. However, the XKR did make a few changes to improve and differentiate itself from the pack. What is interesting is that the top speed that the XKR will reach is 155 miles per hour, this is electronically controlled, so there is no way that you can go above this, even though the engine could outperform this number. Most people believe that this was done in order to limit the number of accidents that resulted from the speed of the car, which does help improve the safety ratings of the XKR.
There are many different limited editions of the XKR, which will of course cost more, however, most people view these as more collectible. The XKR Silverstone was only for the UK and Japanese market, which means finding one in the US is not going to be easy. The most notable aspect about this car was that it included a one of king interior with different colors than what people were normally use to seeing in the XKR, making it a surprise. However, it also included all the options on it, which made it a huge turner, as well as luxurious ride to own. There are several other limited editions to choose from, most of them are subject to one specific location, however, this only adds to the prestige of owning one of these rare vehicles, in addition, there may have only been a limited number of these editions made since they are expected to be those cars that are wanted and will be preserved for future generations.

However, most people believe that they wanted to be a better contender with Mercedes-Benz, which is their biggest competitor.
