Car exhausts. Some have one, others have two, more still have more than two. But what is the most optimum number of car exhausts for a car to have? The answer is simple: as many as possible.

The car pictured at the top of this post is the Bugatti Galibier concept. It has, as you can see, eight exhausts. You might think that this surely is enough exhausts. No!

Design sketch by Bugatti, showing the Galibier concept beside the Type 57SC Atlantic. Note the exhausts.

The Galibier concept merely has eight exhausts as a tribute to the old Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, which had a straight eight engine. One cylinder, one exhaust.

This is the correct number of exhausts. The correct number of exhausts is as many exhausts as physically possible.

CORRECTION: This piece incorrectly stated that the Bugatti Type 57SC had eight exhausts. The Bugatti Type 57SC had a pitiful six exhausts. For shame, Ettore.
