The National Motor Museum has taken on-loan one of the world’s fastest and most expensive cars; a 2008 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4.
The car is an extraordinary feat of automotive engineering complete with seven gears and special run-flat tyres that cost up to $20,000 each specifically designed to handle the cars top speeds. The Veyron can reach 100km p/h in 2.46 seconds and has a special spoiler that deploys to lower the suspension when it hits 220km p/h.
It is one of only 71 sold in 2008 making it a rare treat to have on display at the Museum. Get along to the National Motor Museum in the Adelaide Hills township of Birdwood to see this one-off special supercar!
