Fuel Injectors

1.) The thirsty fuel injectors of Dodge’s Challenger SRT Hellcat could drain an Olympic-sized pool in 361 days. Each of the eight injectors can flow 600 cubic centimeters per minute, for a total of 4,800 cc/minute. An Olympic pool is approximately 2,500,000,000 cc. Some simple arithmetic gives us 8680.5 hours, or 361 days, for the engine to drain that amount of fuel. 

Radiators

2.) Due to the heat generated by its massive sixteen cylinder quad-turbo engine, the Bugatti Veyron has 12 radiators strategically placed throughout the body. To cool such an engine with a single radiator would require it to be about the size of a pool table. In order to create a sleek profile, smaller radiators are used in areas of high air pressure to keep the beast from a meltdown.
