The Bugatti Veyron boasts titles such as the fastest production road car ever and the most expensive road car ever. Its 8.0 liter W16 engine is mated to a dual-clutch direct-shift gearbox computer-controlled automatic transmission with seven gear ratios. Its top speed is 253.8 mph. The car is impressive and, plainly said, if anyone denies that then they are just being difficult. Let’s give credit where credit is due.
And if anyone still has a hard time believing anything that we have said then you might want to take a look at some of the videos we have provided. National Geographic has revealed a very cool documentary about the Bugatti Veyron supercar. There are four different episodes, each representing different moments in the building of the car. In Episode 1, there is a short history of Bugatti, back story of the Veyron, and the making and testing of the W16 engine. In Episode 2, they explain how the transmission, brakes, and the wing are made, and Episode 3 presents the rest of the wing, the sub-assembly, fuel tank, tires, and the beginning of assembly. Episode 4 illustrates the rest of assembly, road testing at 253MPH, and an outro.
Three more videos after the jump.
