Bugatti cars

  Bugatti is a French car manufacturer and was founded in 1909. The company was known for its engineering in automobiles and for the artistic designs with the Type 57SC Atlantic being a fine example. The manufacturer has also has a lot of success on the race track and won the Monaco GP in 1930 for the first time. The manufacturer went into financial trouble after the death of its owner and after the WWII and only after it was bought by Volkswagen did it come back into prominence.

Bugatti SuperVeyron

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.

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.

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!

Imagine the Lamborghini Aventador , Ferrari FF , Aston Martin One-77 and Chevrolet Camaro SS all in one place. No, we are not talking about the cars that would occupy our dream garage; we are just talking about the cars from the insane Dubai Police fleet. To make it even crazier, another supercar has just joined the lineup: the Bugatti Veyron .

So, let’s figure out how many horsepower the fleet now has at its disposal to catch bad guys. there’s 700 from the Aventador; 660 from the FF; 750 from the One-77; 426 from the Camaro SS; and 1,001 from the Veyron. That gives the Dubai police force a total of more than 3,500 horsepower! Hopefully it has a very large stable and a stacked bank account to go along with it.

The problem with the Veyron is that the police officers could be forced to end a chase early, considering the huge gasoline appetite the Veyron has.

We’re just wondering what’s next on the force’s list; can you guess?

A few days ago, Bugatti dropped a teaser image of what we thought would be the company’s long-rumored 1,600-horsepower Bugatti SuperVeyron . However, it looks like the teaser image was in fact for a special Veyron Vitesse WRC Limited Edition built to celebrate the company’s latest record.

A Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse with Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu behind the wheel scored a new record for the company: it managed to hit a top speed of 254.04 mph. The result was achieved at the Volkswagen Group’s proving grounds in Ehra-Lessien and was officially confirmed by German organization for Technical Inspection and Certification TÜV.

The special edition Veyron Vitesse WRC will be limited to only eight units and will be priced at €1.99 million (or $2.6 million at the current exchange rates).

Updated 04/26/2013: Bugatti has unveiled a first official video for the Veyron Vitesse WRC Limited Edition that was unveiled a few days ago in Shanghai. The video offers a few shots from the car’s record-breaking exploits and offers a few more details on the supercar. Enjoy!

These past few weeks have been full with Bugatti Veyron news, with the most important one being its new 254 mph record established by a Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse . Today it’s time to see the Veyron in action one more time, but this time in its Gran Sport variant.

The supercar was pushed to the extremes by 2004 Le Mans winner, Seiji Ara, at Fuji Speedway. The great part of this video is that it presents not only the car in action on the racetrack, but it also offers some of the Ara’s impressions.

The Grand Sport is powered by the same 8-liter W-16 engine that develops a total of 1,001 horsepower and 921 pound-feet of torque. The supercar can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and can hit a top speed of 252 mph, but it is limited to 217 mph with the roof down.
