An exclusive chateau in Molsheim, France is home to Bugatti "hypercars," some of the fastest, most expensive and most luxurious vehicles in the world.

A souped-up version of the $3 million Bugatti Chiron Sport recently broke a record, becoming the first production car to top speeds of 300 miles per hour.

Legendary race car driver Andy Wallace was behind the wheel. CBS correspondent Ian Lee asked Wallace: "When you hit 300 though, what was the feeling? Accomplishment? Just focus?"

Wallace responded: "It's the fastest I've ever been, that's for sure."

Speed has been in the company's DNA for over 100 years. The first Bugatti cars were born to race. Today, each car is handcrafted with carbon fiber, aerospace grade metals, and built uniquely for each client.

Fewer than a hundred roll out of the workshop every year.

One car, however, is one-of-a-kind. Bugatti's "La Voiture Noire" was priced at $19 million, making it the most expensive new car ever sold.

Lee asked Wallace: "What makes Bugatti stand out compared to Ferrari, Lamborghini, and other supercars?

Wallace responded: "Not only are we the fastest production car in the world and the most powerful, we're a luxury car, so it's a complete package."

Bugatti won't reveal what's coming next, so buckle up as they race to stay one car length ahead of the competition.

If you want to buy one of these hypercars, you may have to be patient. The waiting list is two years.
