268 MPH…WOW…And It’s a VW…Sort of

Bugatti, a subsidiary of Volkswagen, has come out with a production car that will go 268 miles per hour. That’s almost four times the maximum speed limit on any highway in America. It broke the previous record set by a Shelby of 256 MPH, although Bugatti says that the Shelby shouldn’t qualify as a production car. Bugatti plans to build 300 of the two plus million dollar cars whilst Shelby plans on building four of his models a month for the next four years. Shelby’s model comes in at a paltry 780,000 bucks. The maker of this “new” Shelby is Jerrod Shelby, no relation to the famous Carroll Shelby of souped up Mustang fame.
