It matters not who you are, if you’re into anything remotely related to automobiles then you simply have to give credit to Bugatti for creating the most advanced, complicated and technically advanced combustion engine on the planet. The engine is such a masterpiece that the Italian automaker has used it in a few different models in a few states of tune. In the case of the latest car to be built around the W16 powerplant, the limited number Mistral, the quad turbocharged setup is set up to produce a full 1 600 hp that affords the hypercar performance figures like the ability to hit 100 km/h in just 2.3-seconds, 200 km/h in 6.1-seconds, 300 km/h in 12.65-seconds, 322 km/h (the benchmark 200 mph mark) in 14.95-seconds and can run on to a top speed of 420 km/h. The latter should be timed in less than 42-seconds seeing as the Chiron managed that with less power. This setup in the Mistal isn’t the most powerful version of the monstrous powerplant, that title goes to the Bugatti Bollide that’s rated at an insane 1 825 hp (1 361 kW).
