Long-time readers here will remember my relationship with the Bugatti Veyron.
Well, the Veyron has been retired and replaced by the new 150HP Chiron for a cool $2.5 million. Since it’ll do 248 MPH it would be the perfect vehicle for the order I started (in my mind) years ago, the Rubricians, who go forth into the world two by two to teach rubrics and battle liturgical abuse.
In the Car and Driver description, I liked this part:
The 8.0-liter W-16 engine returns, though now with direct injection, increased boost pressure, and at least two of its four turbochargers electrically powered. Output rises from 1200 to 1500 horsepower, and the 1106 pound-feet torque peak arrives lower in the rev range. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic again handles the shifting, and the four-wheel-drive system adds torque vectoring.
Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, an actual F-18.
But… I’ll still miss the Veyron for those quick forays to battle evil and to end clerical oppression.
