Teenage Bugatti Driver Tops 200MPHHere is a young man with a bright future ahead of him. Despite his tender young age (only 13-years), this lad astonished experts, at the ShiftS3ctor – Revolution.com Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2016, with his knowledge of extremely expensive automobiles and his ability to drive them very fast while maintaining his cool. Although Steven is not yet old enough to get a driver’s license, this is his second year competing in this event.

This year the family brought out a bevy of exotic beauties, including a Porsche 918, a McLaren 650S, and a Bugatti Veyron. That’s nearly $2.5-million worth of horsepower — but let’s face it — the only thing better than going over 200 mph is beating your ol’ dad while doing it.

The Bugatti is equipped with a massive W16 engine and a quad-turbocharger system. These cars cost around $1-million, make over 1,000hp, and are incredibly complex. They require multiple cooling and charging systems (among a myriad of other specialized components). The Porsche is a state-of-the-art hybrid that produces 887hp using a 4.7-liter V8 engine and a pair of electric motors. It also comes with a $1-million sticker price. The $650K McLaren (641hp/3.8-liter engine) was broken on day-one and didn’t compete. There are multiple 200+ mph passes.
