The Bugatti Veyron is the Alpha dog in the supercar arena, with its absurd W16 engine equipped with four turbos combining to create 1,000hp for tossing around the 4,100lb beast at will. There aren't many vehicles, at any price, that can go from zero to 100 back to zero again in under 10 seconds, so every time one of the 300 Veyrons is captured on video, it's worth posting.

After the jump is a couple minutes of the venerable Veyron tackling the twists and turns at the 2007 Prescott Hill Climb back in May. Watch how the $1.4 million mega-supercar hits the pavement just a few feet from hundreds of onlookers, with some high-end rubber and AWD keeping the blown W16's prodigious power under control. For some reason, whoever put together this flick felt the need to loop the video about 1:25 in, but it's worth seeing twice anyway. Enjoy!.

      Wow that sounds nice, first time I have heard one pushed. Kinda like a big US V8 having a baby with a Ferrari v-12. I guess in hindsite that does make sense as it basically 2 v-8's mounted side by side.

      I'd be more impressed to see it take on Pike's Peak hill climb.

        I'm with you on that.

      If there is truly a god, it's got to let me drive this car before I die. I'll even borrow the money for the gas.

      hmmm... plenty of Ducatis and MV Agustas go 0-100-0 for a lot less than a million dollars. Probably go 0-100-0 on an MV before the Bugatti even gets up to 100.

        That's funny, comparing a bike with a Bugatti Veyron. That's like comparing a...bike to a car.... The difference is that the Bugatti Veyron has a top speed of 253mph. Not only that, it acheives this breakneck speed with elegance and stability. It is truly a marvel of engineering, i doubt any car OR bike (but that doesn't need to be said) in the near future can even approach the sheer ingenuity of this vehicle.

        And don't claim, bikes handle better than cars, i want to see ANY bike outhandle an Ariel Atom with the k20, not the bloody blasphemous Ecotec that the american version is cursed with.

        Uhhh, you know those are sport bikes right? This is a car?

        Hell, while we are at it: a turbo Hayabusa could beat an F1 car to 60, the space shuttle has a higher top speed than an F-18, and I can run faster than my beagle.

        Doesn't really draw a good parallel...does it?

        The Veyron is amazing machinery and will be a collector car for decades, maybe centuries, to come.

        Your beagle is slow. :)

      Hahaha to number 2 (mike).

      I think the 'looping' was actually another run.

      So did it do a better time than the Morgan?
