Speaking of the supernatural, let’s talk acceleration. Stomp the throttle from a standstill and the 14-inch-wide Michelins (specially designed for the Veyron) grip immediately thanks to all-wheel-drive. Things are normal for about a second, until the massive chrome air intakes above your right shoulder take a deep breath, the four turbos spool up without a hint of lag and that point on the horizon…? Yep – you’re there. Like that. We’d love to tell you how long it took to get to 60, but we honestly don’t remember. The only things we remember are flexing our right calf and the car’s windows rolling up. That happens at 100 mph to improve aerodynamics. And it all happened in about the time it takes to read these four words.
