Achieving 1001 horsepower in a racing engine is one thing, but to do so in a reliable, refined, durable, and emissions-legal street configuration is much harder. The engine in the Veyron is a quad-turbocharged W16 (essentially, two mated V8s), displacing 488ci. That’s about as much engine output as two Corvette Z06 V8s.

To help heat escape from the engine compartment, the big W16 sits in the open, with no enclosure cover of any kind.
