Since 99% of us will never actually see a Bugatti Veyron, we’ll have to make do with various substitutes; photographs, sound clips, magazine articles and the like. More incredible than merely seeing one in the flesh is seeing what awesome feats the Veyron can accomplish. Fortunately, a National Geographic doucmentary available on Youtube will let you see firsthand just what the car can do.

We all know the statistics that have been constantly thrown around; 0-60 in 2.5 seconds, a top speed of 253 miles per hour, 1001 horsepower. But one of the most incredible things is seeing how the car brakes. Watch in Part 2 of the clip as the Veyron slows down from some absurd speed, to a complete stop in a matter of seconds. Yes, the Veyron is capable of making going slow cool, but you already knew that based on how many owners drive their exotics slowly, to make sure everybody sees how rich and fabulous they are.

The real stars of the documentary are undoubtedly the engineers, a diverse team of some of the brightest minds in the fields of automotive, metallurgical and aerospace (yes, aerospace) engineering, brought together by Volkswagen to create the world’s most impressive car. We strongly suggest not skipping any of the four parts, and watching the whole thing to get a true appreciation of how the Veyron came to life.
