    It's a Bugatti Veyron. Twin or Quad (cant remember) Turbo'd V12 with 1000+hp!!
    Goes for somewhere in the multi-million $ range.

    Its Quad Turbo, and they don't all fire at once. They all fire at different times to keep the power flow stop and low turbo lag, if any. Its also 1,001 HP, and even though all are spoken for already, Bugatti will not make anhything from them due to there high cost.

    Then agian I would still rather have a Ferrari FXX.

    What's with the smoke? I've seen a lot of V12 turbos in my day, and never have I seen one smoke like that unless it's about to do something horrible. Like, blow the engine horrible.

    Beautiful car, but not my cup of tea. Give me a Lamborghini or Ferrari any day. No, seriously, someone please give me one. 'Cause I'll never be able to afford it.

    The reflection of the headlights makes it look like there could be water on the track, so it could just be kicking up mist and vapor instead of actual smoke from the exhaust.

    It's officially an W12. Yes, they put 2 V12's in that insane machine.
    I would imagine that if you turn the Traction Control off, you can burn through those tires in 20 seconds with that monster...

    Ok - W refers to the fact that it's two narrow-angle V engines mated at the crank, which kind of resembles a W. It still only has 12 cylinders since it's two narrow-angle v6 engines mated together.

    VW did a similar thing for the last-generation Passat W8 - two narrow-angle V4s.

    And it's very obviously just mist on the ground that the car is kicking up rather spectacularly - look at the reflection of the lights on the road.
