DRIVE BY: WORLD'S FASTEST CAR

The brand spanking new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport (try saying that after you’ve just coughed up the $2.97m it takes to own one) has screamed into history, reclaiming the land speed record for a production car, which it lost to the SSC Aero in 2007.

It clocked 431 kmh at Bugatti’s test track in France last week, making the Veyron the fastest thing you can buy out of a showroom for the second time — if you can afford your own private island, that is.

Pushing it down the track faster than a Christmas Island-bound asylum seeker was a whopping 882kW engine (twice as much as a Ferrari 599 GTB), with an unbelievable torque of 1500 Newton metres.

That means you can’t afford it, can’t touch it, can’t even look at it — and if Matt Preston drove one, even he’d wake up with Megan Fox on his gear lever.
