Bugatti has issued specific details about its apparently exhaustive development program for the forthcoming 252mph Veyron. Eleven prototypes are currently completing the supercar’s final tests, which are claimed to take in complete checks of every individual system on the car; four other test cars will soon join them.

Each will go through a one-off 30,000 mile endurance trial, multiple braking trials from upwards of 150mph, and thousands of high-speed miles pushing Michelin’s bespoke rubber, approved for speeds of over 250mph, to its limits.

Deliveries should start in autumn next next year, in return for the car's cool million-Euro asking price.
