Steve Sutcliffe gets behind the wheel of the Veyron Super Sport, which is claimed capable of 258mph, to find out if it's really the world's ultimate road car.

An engineering marvel that VW can truly be proud of. With such mind-boggling statistics involved, the only thing missing is a self-drive function.

...but I'm not the only one who'd get bored of it.

If I were to buy a car at this level, I'd want not just statistics, luxury and almost excellent dynamics, but great dynamics and a sense of excitement that is fed not just by acceleration and speed, but through every sense of your body. This points me to only one manufacturer - Ferrari. I'd pay £600k for a Aperta and have everything I could want including an appreciating asset, or pay the same £2,000.000 and get a classic Ferrari 250 (although I accept I'd struggle to find one at this price now) and watch its value go up.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
