You need more than just a brochure to convince someone to spend $2.6 million on a supercar. So when Bugatti wanted to tease its upcoming Chiron, the follow-up to its revered Veyron, last year, it had to turn to the special effects wizards at SLGH to fake a CG version for a promo video, because the car didn’t quite…
The Sun Valley Rally closes off a 3.2 mile-stretch of Idaho’s Highway 75, and it’s where America’s Bugatti owners come to test their top speeds. Watch this one “Hellbug” only achieve a miserable and pathetic 230 mph. So slow!
We’ve all experienced this dilemma—your company goes public and your minority stake is now worth major bucks. You’ve been eyeing this used Bugatti Veyron, but a handful of affordable islands near French Polynesia just went on the market, with just enough room to build a landing strip for your Gulfstream. What do you…
I have a real love-hate thing going on with Bugatti. Vintage Bugattis are some of the most stunning machines of any type I’ve ever seen. Modern Bugattis are impressive, but fundamentally stupid. This Bugatti Lifestyle brand stuff, though, leaves me completely un-conflicted. It’s a glimpse into some ultra-weird rich…
The Bugatti Chiron is better than the Veyron in every way; the Chiron is faster, more powerful, and even better looking than its predecessor. But there’s a reason why the new car can’t match the old.
Andy House, the exotic car salvage yard owner who crashed his Bugatti Veyron into a lake, has been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison after he plead guilty to insurance fraud. House faced up to 20 years in prison after claiming he saw a “low-flying pelican” and steering right into the water.
The Bugatti burnout may be the most elusive burnout of all. Here’s a 1,200 horsepower Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car Edition lighting up all four tires.
Dubai is known for its obscene displays of wealth, and the tradition is continuing with the new Bugatti-inspired houses from DAMAC Properties.
It’s no secret that Bugatti is working on a more-everything successor to the Veyron, the 1500 HP, 288 MPH Chiron. I’m here to tell Bugatti right now to stop work on it, because it’s stupid and you’re wasting your time. You really want to make a supercar — I mean, a real supercar? Then I have one word for you: ALON®.
Volkswagen Group emperor Martin Winterkorn confirmed to German newspaper Bild that the Veyron’s successor is a go with a hybrid drivetrain producing 1,500 horsepower for a top speed of 286 mph. To balance that out, Volkswagen’s really-really budget brand will also launch in 2018.
It was bound to happen. Kawasaki’s track-only, supercharged, 300-horsepower H2R is the world’s fastest production bike and the Bugatti Veyron is the world’s fastest production car. Here’s what happens when you let them loose on an airfield for a half-mile drag race.
How can you say no to a little boy who wants to go for a ride in a cool car? As the father of a two year old who asks me if we can “Go zoom in the blue car?” I totally understand. You can’t say no. So when a seven year old with Leukemia wanted to take a ride in a Bugatti Veyron, a Texas exotic car dealership answered…
There can be no car that can do it all, yet there is. It should have been impossible, but they built 450. They are known as Bugatti Veyrons, the fastest cars the world has ever seen.
The Bugatti Veyron “La Finale” is the last of all the original sixteen-cylinder quad-turbo monsters, and there is a certain sadness in seeing stomp off to pasture ten years later. But even though Bugatti eventually churned out 450 of them, even the ultimate one was assembled with some reverence.
The Veyron wasn't exactly the most desirable car ever made, taking ten long years to sell 450 of them. The drivetrain, though, was an irrefutable masterpiece.
When the Bugatti Veyron was first introduced in 2005, Bugatti said they'd only sell 450 of the 1,001 horsepower behemoth. "They'll sell out in no time," we collectively thought. We were wrong. But now, 10 years later, Bugatti has finally sold the 450th Veyron, and the La Finale is the inverse of the first one they…
Aw, dammit! Why did I go heat up that burrito before clicking the BUY NOW button on Bugatti's website? Looks like I just missed out on buying the 450th and last Bugatti Veyron. This last Veyron, called the "La Finale" (that's Franco-Dutch for "the finishment") was sold, shockingly, to a Middle Eastern collector.
Despite being a decade old now, a stock Bugatti Veyron 16.4 will still out-accelerate almost all cars you can throw at it. But not a Stage 3 Gallardo, which is sort of funny once you start to think about it.
Bugatti announced, loudly, that the final Veyron made will be shown at the Geneva Auto Show this year. And I just checked my big, insulated duffel bag, and it seems I'm just fresh out of shits to give. What Bugatti will really be showing in Geneva is the Least Important Car at The Show.
