    It's top speed is 125 mph (electronically limited).  But it does 0-60 in under 4.5 seconds.

    If you had $2.4 million a Veyron would get you 0-60 in 2.4 seconds.  You might have to peel your tongue off your uvula.  It's certainly not a traditional muscle car, though.

    The Nissan GT-R at only $89,950 will get you there in 2.8 seconds.

    •  Not sure if this is the case in all states (0+ / 0-)

      But I know that in NH, a car qualifies as a "low flying aircraft" at 127 mph (this bit of trivia comes courtesy of a relative who lost their right to drive in the state, for obvious reasons). My guess is the limit on top speed is probably a federally required limit for on-road vehicles.
