Bugatti Veyron

At the 76th International Motor Show in Geneva, carmakers are showing off vehicles that you'd expect James Bond to drive--machines packed with power, grace and comfort.

CNET Car Tech's Wayne Cunningham reported all the highlights directly from Euorpe's glamour car show. Plus, here are other new concepts on display at the show.

Shown here is the Bugatti Veyron, whose 16 cylinders from two W-8 engines and four turbochargers can generate 1,001 horsepower. The Veyron's top speed has been clocked at 252 mph, and it races from 0 to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds.
