Amazing car.

But I don't get why they make all these references to F1 technology when VW/Audi/Bugatti don't even field an F1 team?

edit: and it weights 4,300 lbs! what a porker!

Not crazy about the grill, however the W-16 Quad Turbo setup is interesting.

Still not sure wether to love or hate the two-tone.

In some ways i think its neccessary to to accentuate the sculpted curves of the car, but on the otherhand, i'd prefer one color or the other...

How much gas is that?
Here's a quick calculation, which you can ignore if you hate math:
1,000 horsepower is equivalent to roughly 2.6 billion joules per hour. A gallon (3.8 liters) of gasoline contains 132 million joules, so a 1,000-hp engine has to be able to burn just over 20 gallons of gasoline per hour.
However, car engines are only about one-quarter efficient -- three quarters of the gasoline's energy escapes as heat rather than as power to the wheels. So the engine actually has to be able to burn at least 80 gallons per hour, or 1.33 gallons (5 liters) per minute.
Let's convert over to metric. Gasoline requires about 14.7 kilograms of air to burn 1 kilogram of gas. Air weighs 1.222 kilograms per cubic meter at sea level. A gallon of gasoline weighs 2.84 kilograms. So the engine has to be able to process 2.84*1.33*14.7 kilograms of air per minute, or roughly 45 cubic meters of air per minute. That's 45,000 liters of air per minute.
If a V-8 engine is turning at 6,000 rpm, it can inhale a total of 24,000 cylinders' full of air per minute. If it needs to inhale 45,000 liters of air per minute, it works out to roughly 2 liters per cylinder-full. That's a 16-liter engine.
My yearly salary couldent covor how much gas that thing uses.

No such thing as a cubic liter. Liter is already volume by definition. Its redundant to say "cubic liter"- i think they just mean liter, which converts to 1000 cubic centimeters.

would cost you 2 million actually with the amount of gas you put into that car, probably 2 full tanks a day.

I like how it has 1001 horsepower, cause if 1000 horsepower isn't enough you have that extra ponny to push you over the edge.
