Between Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti, the Volkswagen Group has no lack of prestige marques under its umbrella. And while some of these marques may produce models that compete against each other, each seems to be profitable enough in its own right to justify its existence. But what about Bentley and Bugatti? Surely these marques cater to the same customers, right?

If there's anything the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport doesn't need, it's more power, right?

Fast enough, right?

Buying a new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport will set you back over $1.7 million. That's a whole lot of scratch, so what do you get in return? Well, a 1,000-horsepower quad-turbo sixteen-cylinder engine, to start off with. And all the bragging rights that go along with it. You get the most prestigious badge in the business. And you get two roofs.
