I'm Sure Bruce Wayne Will Pick Up a Half-Dozen
Volkswagen has unleashed the Bugatti Veyron, the fastest and most expensive production car in history. Not only does it look like a Batmobile, but it performs like one too: It goes from zero to 200 mph in 20 seconds, and reaches 253 mph in 53 seconds. (After traveling at that rate, it runs out of gas in 12 minutes; a necessary safety feature, since the tires start to soften after half an hour). And it costs a mere one-and-a-quarter-million. I'm sure it will take up a stall in many a man's fantasy garage.
