So what can 16 crore rupees buy in India?

Nothing says ‘India has arrived’ more than Bugatti launching a 16 Cr Veyron Grand Sport. Yes, you heard it right – 16 CR; that’s 16 followed by not five or six but 7 zeros. For a petrolhead, this car is Nirvana; for a rich business man, this car is the maddest way to get attention. This not a just a car, it is an engineering masterpiece made entirely from sheer improbable numbers.
Here are just a few
A top speed of 407 km/hr
An 8 liter, 16 cylinder engine with 4 turbo chargers
0-60 km/hr in 2.6 seconds
A power to weight ratio of 440 bhp per ton.
10 radiators that require 55 liter of cooling water to keep it cool.
And all of these mind boggling numbers in a car that’s street legal. Honestly, this car can make a Maybach and a Rolls Royce look cheap!
Bugatti Automobiles has appointed Exclusive Motors as the company’s dealer in India. Mr Guy Caquelin, Sales Manager (Middle East, India and Europe), Bugatti, said, “Bugatti has been doing well in America, Europe and the Middle East. Now we see India as an emerging market for us, hence we have decided to bring the car to India.”
The company plans to sell 3-4 Veyrons every year in India and the deliveries would be made within eight months from booking.
Just to give you a small idea of how EXCLUSIVE this car is: Even if you win Kaun Banega Crorepati three times on the trot, you will still fall short of 1 cr to buy the car. So you need to win KBC thrice and then get lucky in a lottery immediately afterward to get one.
