Bugatti

You might be able to trace Bugatti’s history back to when it was originally founded in 1909, but until the Bugatti brand was acquired by Volkswagen in 1998, it had a very turbulent path that included the death of Jean Bugatti and a war-torn factory after World War 2. The company opened a new factor and continued on but continued to decline until Ettore Bugatti died in 1947. Just five years later, Bugatti ceased operation. This time was a vital period for the brand as it showed the world models like the Bugatti Type 13, Type 18, and Type 57SC. Bugatti was also rather successful at racing in this period as well.

The company almost bounced back in the mid-1950s when Roland Bugatti built the mid-engined Type 251 race car, but it wasn’t successful, and production was halted again. Over the next 20 years, Bugatti continued building airplane parts and was eventually sold to Hispano-Suiza, which was taken over by Snecma in 1968. That company acquired Messier and turned the Bugatti brand into Messier-Bugatti in the late 1970s. 10 years later, the Bugatti brand was acquired by another entity, and its name was changed to Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. This is the company that was responsible for the EB110 GT. However, by the time the EB110 was ready to hit the market, the world was in a recession, and the company was forced to cease operations yet again in 1995.

Finally, in 1998, the Volkswagen Group was able to acquire the Bugatti brand, at which point it was renamed Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. Since Volkswagen’s acquisition of the brand, it has been largely successful, but it all started with a number of concept vehicles – the EB118, EB218, and the 18/3 Chiron. It wasn’t until 2005 that the new Bugatti started producing regular-production vehicles, and that’s when we first laid eyes on the Veyron. 10 years later, the Chiron came into play, and the company is still developing models based on it, including the Divo and the La Voiture Noire. Under the leadership of VAG, it’s likely that Bugatti will remain successful throughout the foreseeable future.

Bugatti EB110 - A Great Car That Didn’t Get The Credit It Deserved

This is everything you need to know about the Bugatti EB110

Many consider the 1990s to be a Golden Age for supercars. Many poster cars have come precisely from this era. I myself have posters and scaled models of many of them. Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari F50, Honda NSX, McLaren F1, Jaguar XJ220, and others some of the most well-known representatives of their time. There is another one, however. The Bugatti EB110 was the French take on a 1990s supercar and, despite being relatively forgotten by some, it was an awesome car. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Can you really have it all with the Chiron Pur Sport?

Hypercars are one of the most fascinating categories of cars ever to exist. Over the past two decades, Bugatti has been consistently breaking speed records as well as price tag records in its class, with very few manufacturers being able to compete with the old French brand. Just like its predecessor, the Chiron has had more than a few versions made, some of which are highly-exclusive. With that being said, only one of those versions can be the ultimate.

Despite all the expertise and experience in creating bespoke models, Bugatti nearly quit mid-way given how complex the pattern work on this Divo was

When you’re the carmaker equivalent of Scrooge McDuck in terms of money, you can do just about anything; case in point being this gentleman who commissioned Bugatti to paint the Divo with ladybug-esque spots! It is way more complex than it sounds and the French automaker nearly backed out of the whole project. But, after a year and a half, they managed to successfully execute it and deliver the car to the customer.

25 Incredible Facts About The Stunning Bugatti Divo

Learn How It Differs From The Chiron

Revealed at “The Quail” as part of Monterey Car Week, the new Bugatti Divo represents the next step into the extreme for the company that produces the fastest car on the planet - the Chiron. The new car takes a slightly different approach to life compared to the Chiron. Apart from being extremely fast and ridiculously powerful, the Divo moves a bit more to the dynamism and cornering abilities, so the top speed is its second priority. While it is based on the Chiron, the Divo feels like a new car, and this made me list a number of facts and differences between the Divo and the Chiron.

Now, I did say that the top speed feels like it’s only the second priority for the Divo. Well, that second priority is at 236 mph.

The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is as much a car as it is a mirage. Born to be raced by gamers in the smash Playstation title Gran Turismo 6, joining many other ’Vision Gran Turismo’ creations from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, BMW, Nissan, or Citroen, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo somehow transcended the world of gaming when Bugatti actually decided to build a running and driving example of it.

Bugatti and the Bolide - Stepping Outside the Box

Having doubts that the Bugatti Bolide is a masterpiece?

With the Bolide, Bugatti virtually took the W-16, 8-liter engine and developed an ultra-light body around it. And while modern Bugattis and the term ‘ultra-light’ do not go hand in hand, the Bolide fits the description, as it tips the scales at just 1,240 kilos (2,734 pounds).

Sure, it is so easy to take things for granted these days, and simply expect such contraptions to simply happen from a brand like Bugatti. However, the truth is that, in developing the Bolide, Bugatti had to give its absolute best.
