The main thing about the Veyron is not that it can do 250+ mph, it's that it can do it in a controlled, undramatic fashion due to the incredible technologies built into it.

A Koenigsegg is a damned kit car by comparison. Sure, 1000 hp, fast, blah blah blah, but technically it's not even on the same page as the Veyron. Any half-decent engineer can build a 1000hp engine, it's how well it runs, how well it lasts and how well the chassis it is in is designed that makes all the difference...
