There is one thing that Simon Cowell, one of the judge for “American Idol,” is now known for. No, it’s something else besides his frankness when it comes to giving comments to the contestants. It’s his Bugatti Veyron, a powerful 16-cylinder four-wheel drive. It’s astonishing in looks and even more astonishing in performance and capabilities. This certain Bugatti boasts of a maximum speed of over 400 km per hour. Its horsepower will make jaws drop and heads spin, as its total offers up to 1,001. The Veyron needs only a horsepower between 270 and 280 to get a constant sped of 250 km/h. To help bring out the best performance and an unforgettable drive or ride, its Electronic Stability Program (ESP) makes certain that you get adjusted accordingly to whatever speed you’re riding with. Its advanced aerodynamics keeps you assured that you’ll stay on the road even when you’re racing down the street. This car goes from zero to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. An efficient braking system? Not a problem at all. Bugatti made sure that its ceramic brakes slow down quicker than it can accelerate.
Making use of titanium, carbon, magnesium, and aluminum, this car was meant to be truly lightweight. Titanium piston rods, titanium screws, magnesium valve caps, and titanium exhaust system all shave off some weight to achieve this lightweight flawlessness. With this car, safety is not overlooked. Carbon monocoque construction is applied. It is capable of withstanding massive impact from crashes. It’s the same material used in the Formula 1 racecars. The Bugatti Veyron has precision engineering – from the steering system to the tires. Every inch of this model seems to scream out perfection. Not really a far cry from what Simon Cowell aims for when it comes to his expectations regarding the contestants of the reality T.V. show “American Idol.”
