Of course, the kind of speed achievable from an 1,800-horsepower hypercar rightfully gets all the headlines, but there’s more to it than just sheer power. Bugatti claims that the Tourbillon will go from 0-60 mph in just 2.0 seconds, reaching 124 mph (200 kph) in less than five seconds. Keep the throttle pinned, and it will reach 248 mph in less than 25 seconds. All those numbers are incredible, but the way they’re achieved is just as impressive. The Tourbillon uses a number of advanced materials and construction techniques, like a monocoque chassis made from aerospace-grade carbon composite. It also uses modern technology like 3D printing in the construction of items like suspension components, to keep the vehicle’s overall weight as low as possible.

There’s performance in mind around every corner, but without sacrificing luxury. To maintain a low seating position, the seats are fixed directly to the floor. But how do you adjust your seating position? Surely, this hypercar must adjust to individual owners — and of course it does. The pedals and steering wheel come to you — a strategy inspired by motorsport.
