Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron

  The Bugatti Veyron is an 8-litre, mid engine grand touring car. The Super Sport version is the fastest road-legal production car in the world with a top speed of 267mph and was designed and developed by the Volkswagen Group. It was launched internationally in 2005.

It was fun while it lasted, but now all the gossip and whispers are about to come to a stop.

The long-rumored, and we can imagine, often-fantasized Bugatti SuperVeyron will not happen. Not now. Not tomorrow. Not in the distant future.

(*Cue the sighs of disappointment)

The official word finally came out of the mouth of Bugatti president Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, who spoke with Autoblog at Pebble Beach last weekend and unloaded the bombshell on the industry.

The news was disappointing, although something that wasn’t all that surprising considering the nature of the industry and the economy these days. Besides, the Veyron is still alive and kicking, as evidenced by the recent unveiling of the Jean-Pierre Wimille Edition at the same event over the weekend.

it would’ve been nice, though, to see a 1,600-horsepower Veyron out on the road, one that would have little problem establishing itself as the fastest and most powerful production car on the planet. But alas, it won’t happen so all’s left is to wonder what might have been.

Then again, Dr. Schreiber did say that a replacement for the Veyron is already in the works once the beloved Bugatti rides off into the sunset. We’re not sure if that one’s going to pack close to the 1,600 horsepower the SuperVeyron was rumored to have, but it did give us reason to hope.

Here’s a dilemma we’d like all of you answer: if you had around $30,000 in your pocket and you have to use it by the end of the day, would you spend it on a 2014 Ford Mustang or would you shell out just over $25,000 - and pocket the rest - for a one-day fling with the Bugatti Veyron .

On one hand, it’s easy to say that you’d rather have the Mustang permanently. On the other hand, the decision becomes a little trickier when you take into account that you’re going to be allowed to spend 24 hours with the mightiest supercar of them all.

Holders Vehicle Contracts will tell you that it’s an easy choice (rent the Veyron!) and for the most part, it makes a compelling case. It’s not everyday that you can get to seat behind the wheel of a car of the Veyron’s stature. You pay the steep rental price of £16,500 ($25,490) for it, enjoy its company for one day, and then check it off of your bucket list.

Sounds like a good deal, right? Well, it is, especially if you don’t mind spending the next cognizant of the reality that you just spent a little over $25,000 for one day with the Veyron.

In the event you want more than just one day of bonding with the Veyron, you can likewise avail of Holders Vehicle Contracts’ weekend option for the supercar, allowing you spend the entire weekend with it for £45,000 ($69,516).

There’s nothing cheap about the Bugatti Veyron and if you want to be in the company of class and exotic appeal, you might find value in what Holden Vehicle Contracts is offering.

In every company in the world, there are people that have helped elevate it to supremacy and some companies see it fit to celebrate its heroes. Bugatti is doing just that by preparing a series of six individual Veyron models, specially developed to pay tribute to the people that "have played a crucial role in its history and which have helped creating its mystique."

The first from this special series is called Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse "Jean-Pierre Wimille" Edition and, as its name suggests, it pays tribute to Jean-Pierre Wimille — a racecar driver that brought two Le Mans victories to Bugatti.

This special edition was inspired by the Bugatti 57G Tank that won the Le Mans in 1937. It comes with a two-tone paint job that features blue clear-coated carbon fiber and a light Wimille Bleu. Under the hood, this Bugatti Veyron stays bone stock, leaving it at the amazing 8-liter W-16 engine that delivers 1,200 horsepower and 1,100 pound-feet of torque.

The model will be making its world debut at the US The Quail/Pebble Beach set to take place from 16 to 18 August.

Bugatti SuperVeyron

By now, everybody that follows the auto industry knows that Bugatti is preparing the wickedest version of its Veyron supercar to date.

It’s been dubbed the SuperVeyron and insiders have described it as "a fantasy in terms of its performance". That being said, Autocar is reporting that the SuperVeyron will be priced at a staggering £5 million, which is about $7.7 million based on current exchange rates.

In any language, that price tag is beyond ridiculous.

However, for those with the financial wherewithal to make such a purchase, they can take comfort knowing that they spent their money on a car that will put just about every other supercar in this world to absolute shame.

It’s not every day that Bugatti can wax hyperbole, given that the Veyron is already considered one of the fastest and most powerful supercars in the world. But anytime you can outdo even that with a supremely limited edition that’s fixing to shatter records left and right, then there’s really no such thing as exaggerated claims.

When you hear the word "supercar" we bet that one of the first models to come to mind is the Bugatti Veyron . It is definitely not the prettiest car out there - in fact quite the opposite with its jelly-bean-like shape - but it is definitely the fastest one out there.

After all it can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and goes up to an amazing top speed of 257 mph. The SuperSport version entered the Guinness World Book with a top speed of 267 mph, but for the customers the speed is limited to "just" 257 mph.

This infographic shows you what a $2.2 million car offers you. It must offer some pretty cool features if you consider the fact that you can buy 92 Kia C’eeds equipped with a 1.6-liter engine, or a diamond ring or, even better eight new houses with the money it costs.

The "Need for Speed" movie has been getting plenty of publicity the past few days. A day after it was announced that the Ford Mustang will play a starring role in the movie, a new video "Making-Of" trailer was released on the "Need for Speed" YouTube channel. And it shows quite a lot of carnage of the supercar variety.

We’ve already touched on the McLaren P1 being a part of the movie a few months ago. Apparently, the P1 is there alright, together with a slew of other high-priced exotics, like the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport , the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento , and the Koenigsegg Agera .

But what really caught our eye was the untimely demise of the P1, which made us wonder if all those supercars in the movie are actually replicas instead of the real thing.

Now, we wouldn’t put it past Dreamworks Studios and Electronic Arts to get the real McCoys, but if you watch the video and see what happened to the $1.15 million P1, you’re gonna start wondering about the studios plans for these cars.

Low and behold, the fellas over at M5 Board happened to have something that will pique the interest of a lot of people.

This is the Bugatti Veyron versus the Koenigsegg Agera S Hundra . Talk about a titanic battle of ridiculous proportions.

We’re not going to spoil you all the fun of watching the proverbial unstoppable force meeting the immovable object.

Who wins?

Well, everybody really.

That’s what happens when you have a Veyron and an Agera S staring each other down with no give between the two.

Now here’s a treat you don’t get to see everyday

Sure, not everybody was invited to this event, but it was by no means less enjoyable.

Recently, Bugatti held an exclusive track day event at the Paul Ricard Circuit where it invited its "dearest friends" to get an opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vittese .

That’s pretty awesome if only for that small detail about the whole event being limited to an exclusive few, or in this case, people who probably owned Veyrons of their own.

But for those guys who went to the event, congratulations to all of you. Not everybody gets a chance to drive one of the fastest cars in the world, even if it’s being done under the observation of Bugatti test driver Pierre-Henri Raphanel.

Oh, Bugatti also brought along a slew of Veyron Grand Sports, making the event that much more fantastic. At least for those who attended the event.

Mot of you expected the 2011 "Transformers: Dark of the Moon " to be the last movie of the "Transformers" franchise. After all it ended with Michael Bay reigning as robot king, but it looks like the blockbuster director decided to continue the series with an yet unnamed "Transformers 4" series.

The new Transformers 4 series will start shooting this summer and it looks like it will offer quite an impressive amount of surprises. The first of these series of surprises will be the addition of two new Autobots: a 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse and a C7 Corvette Stingray . No other details were released on the two vehicles, but rumors suggest that the Veyron will be the new vehicle form for Drift and the new C7 Corvette Stingray will be the new form of Slingshot.

Next to the new Autobots, Transforms 4 will also bring redesign for Optimus Prime and a new addition to the cast: Mark Wahlberg, who agreed to join the franchise while working with Michael Bay on "Pain & Gain."

In the past few weeks, the Dubai Police expanded its fleet with the craziest supercars out there, ranging from a Camaro SS up to some of the most exclusive models in the world, like the Aston Martin One-77 and Bugatti Veyron .

Before you get too impressed though, it looks like the Veyron is not actually part of the crazy Dubai fleet.

This comes from an email we received from our friends at Kahn Design who realized that the image of the Veyron police car looked an awful lot like one of their cars. From what we can see, this is, in fact, a bad Photoshop applied to one of Kahn’s images. We thought something looked a little strange about that image.

So, what about the rest of the lineup? Are the police officers really driving an Aston Martin One-77, or is it another fake?

We’re not too sure what the Dubai Police force was thinking when it released this image, but we think it is time for an admission if this is truly a fake. And if so, shame on them!
