Ode to Veyron
"Ten radiators cool the Bugatti's rear-mounted 8-liter engine, a 1,001 horsepower W-16 locomotive that weighs 550 kilograms (1,212 pounds) and produces 746,000 watts of power, the same sum of energy as a World War II Japanese Zero fighter plane firing all guns at full throttle. A human exerting that amount of oomph would burn 641,000 calories and evaporate instantaneously."
"Seven gears. Four turbochargers. Faster than a 240 mph McLaren Formula One racecar. A fuel consumption of 1.33 gallons per minute. Enough acceleration to travel 100 meters (328 feet) in less than one second."
