Gas guzzler: Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport

10 big-time gas guzzlers for the 1 percent
2012 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport
  • 2012 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport

  • Price: $1.76 million (according to Car and Driver magazine)
  • Mileage: 9 mpg city/15 mpg highway

If you research the Veyron on the Internet, you will find as many retail prices as sites you visit. That's because Bugatti set the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price at 1.4 million euros. When the exchange rate between dollars and euros changes, U.S. prices can reflect the fluctuation.

You may be disappointed to learn that with the top removed, the Grand Sport can only reach 233 miles per hour rather than the top maximum speed of 253 mph. In either case, this gas guzzler will still hit 60 mph in less than three seconds.

That's what happens when you join two V-8 engines together to form a 1,200-horsepower, 8-liter engine driving all four wheels.

It may not be environmentally friendly, but man, what a rush!
