With 16 cylinders, 4 superchargers, ten radiators, a top speed of 267 MPH, and a sticker price of over two million dollars, the Bugatti Veyron is arguably the world’s finest sports car. On the other hand, at over 2400 miles in length from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California, Route 66 is without question the most legendary of roads.

Not every supercar that can do in excess of 200mph is up to a trip like this. You would not want to endure the stiff suspension, high noise levels and lack of creature comforts most 200 mph cars force you to accept in exchange for that sort of performance. However, the Bugatti Veyron is a different animal. Not only does it have staggering performance, it mates it with world-class luxury and low-speed comfort and driveability that makes it suitable as a daily driver.
