Chiron, the Bugatti Veyron’s long-anticipated successor to the throne of Bestest Car In The Whole World, is finally here. Like its predecessor, it’s a technical triumph, a pinnacle of automotive engineering, and I think it looks much better, too. Too bad it’s still completely fucking stupid.
I think I’ve made my position on those expensive gleaming suppositories of automotive excess we generally call ‘supercars’ quite clear: they’re stupid. But that doesn’t mean I think they always have to be stupid. In fact, I think their path out of the caves of stupidity is, ironically, with an injection of more pure,…
You know what we haven’t seen in about a week? A really good look at the upcoming Bugatti Chiron supercar that is supposedly under wraps until it drops in Geneva in March of next year. No worries — we’ve got a brand new video of two Chiron prototypes. Is Bugatti even trying?
Let’s be real here, Bugatti is kind of doing a shit job keeping its new supercar under wraps until an official reveal, as evidenced by all the spy shots flooding in on a weekly basis. Now we even have a great look at it’s face. And it’s... well... a Bugatti!
New Horizons has finally passed Pluto and the exciting encounter is the perfect occasion to give the confused astronomical community a clear framework for organizing celestial bodies. That framework is how we classify and market cars.
Hello, Floyd! Nice to talk to you. You’re an amazing boxer, and I know you like cars, but I didn’t know much about your collection until I saw this ESPN video. And I have to say, Mr.Mayweather, that your collection has the biggest ratio of money to boring that I’ve ever seen. But, I want to help. And not get punched…
Bugatti has put the Veyron out to pasture after a decade, but a new hypercar is coming, using the same W16 engine capable of sucking in all the world's oxygen at full throttle.
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.
Next year Bugatti will unleash its an all-new supercar onto the world, and now we've got a name.
With the Veyron coming up on its 10th birthday, another special-special edition won't do. So blueprints for the Bugatti's next hypercar are being drawn up, and that includes a hybrid system to boost the already insane 1,200-hp SuperSport to 1,500 hp.
In 2009, a Bugatti Veyron was crashed into a Texas lagoon at the hands of Andy House, who at one point said that a low flying pelican had distracted him and sent him off course. What he didn't know was that the whole thing was caught on film, and the pelican is suspiciously absent.
As one of the fastest and most expensive cars ever built, the Bugatti Veyron is a Concorde moment on the road.
At last weekend's Prescott hill climb, the driver of a targa-topped Bugatti Grand Sport saved his car and a massive amount of money when he almost spun into a grass embankment. For that, we salute him.
Woody Allen famously said that "Eighty-percent of success in life is showing up." Apparently, it's 100% when you're the undemocratically-elected President of a small oil-rich Central Asian country as President Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov proved when he showed up to Turkmenistan's inaugural race in a Bugatti Veyron,…
I'm a little mixed on certain color combinations of the Veyron, but the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse always looks good to me. The point of owning the world's fastest convertible eludes me, but watch this video a few times and tell me if for a brief moment it doesn't somehow make perfect sense.
