Wasn't there an older Bugatti that had three turbos as well?

edit: I was wrong. EB110 had four turbos like the current Veyron.

Does Bugatti REALLY think that a turbo can handle 4 cylinders at a time? Porsche obviously KNOWS that turbos are only capable of supporting 2 cylinders AT MOST!

If that's the case, then the Veyron needs 8 turbos. How much horsepower will that make, if it gets 1,001 from only 4?

But the pointy end has to face infinity, or it would imply that infinity was the larger.
