The secret with the Bugatti lies with the engines and trannsmissons.

Two transmissions in the Bugatti and two twin Turbo VR6 engines, matted to common crank and common drive shaft.

So that 1100 HP is actually 2 550HP engines so I think it was pulled off by having less stress on the transmissions.

You are 100% correct. I should have said W8 not a VR6. I was under the impression that the double clutch was two transmissions based on that each clutch operates the odd and even gears.

So 1-3-5- and 2-4-6 handled by each side.
