Acceleration with the Veyron*) means pure delight without involuntarily nodding heads:
The automobile uses the same launch control technology as Formula 1 racing cars to reach maximum traction force from first to seventh gear and up to 400 km/h maximum speed.
The Veyron’s electronically controlled acceleration takes the car from standstill position beyond the 400 km/h threshold in less than one minute. Just activate launch control, engage gear, control the steering wheel, place your left foot on the brake, and keep your right foot on full throttle. If you release the brakes swiftly, you will accelerate on a par with veritable Formula 1 cars.
The mighty, 736 KW (1,001 hp) sixteen-cylinder four-wheel drive can be felt and driven through a wide spectrum of revolutions per minute. Constant 250 km/h require only 270-280 of the Veyron’s horsepower. More than 700 HP are continuously “on standby” for quick and fast interludes. In other words: at 1,000 r.p.m., only slightly above idling, the Veyron has 730 Newton meter torque available. Between 2,200 and 5,500 r.p.m., 1,250 Newton meter torque are permanently accessible. No other production vehicle has ever offered comparable torques. With this kind of power and pull, the Veyron manages racecourses as easily and competently as lonely mountain passes or rushhour traffic in Tokyo.

The values were calculated using the prescribed measurement method (§ 2, numbers 5, 6, 6 per car energy labeling ordinance in its current version).CO2 emissions, which result from the production and provision of fuel or other energy sources are not taken into account in the determination of CO2 emissions pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC. The figures do not refer to a specific vehicle and are not part of the offer, but only serve the purpose of comparing different vehicle types. The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a vehicle not only depend on the efficient utilization of the fuel by the vehicle, but also on driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Notice pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC of each current valid version: For more information on official fuel consumption and the specific official CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be acquired from the "Guide for Fuel Economy, CO2 Emissions and Power Consumption of New Passenger Cars" available at all sales outlets and at DAT German Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, D-73760 Ostfildern – available free of charge or at www.dat.de. Efficiency classes of vehicles are evaluated in terms of CO2 emissions by means of the vehicle's empty weight. Vehicles that correspond to the average are classified as D. Vehicles that are better are graded with A+, A, B or C. Vehicles that are worse than the average are given an E, F or G.
