PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir Does the Drag Thing

Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir-run

Nope, we don’t mean the Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir has dressed up as a drag queen or something. It has just taken part in last month’s Shift-S3ctor drag race and acceleration runs. That said, this is a strange enough endeavor for the Bugga to be likened to wearing drag.

You don’t normally see a Bugatti Veyron at a drag strip, challenging cars worth one-twelfth of its price, let alone a limited edition like the Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir. But it’s a rather magnificent scene nonetheless. The car accelerates like a mad man with that wing pushing its bottom down on the tarmac.

They only made 15 units of the Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir, sold in Europe, the Middle East and the United States. The main highlights of the car, inspired by the Type 57S Atlantic, include black tinted carbon fibre monocoque, black and carbon body panels, chrome horseshoe grill, hand-stitched, all-leather interior in a mix of Tangerine and Piano Black, all-black front lights, air intakes, filler caps and door-handles, and blue brake calipers.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari LaFerrari Vs. McLaren P1 Vs. Bugatti Veyron Vs. Porsche 918 Vs. Pagani Huayra: Video

What happens when you put a Bugatti Veyron, Pagani Huayra, McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and a Ferrari LaFerrari in the same track at the same time? Short of the world actually melting into a puddle, you get to witness filmmaker Alejandro Salomon’s three-part series called “Hyper 5”.

The premise of Hyper 5 is pretty simple. You get five of the world’s fastest and most powerful supercars, run independent tests on each of them around the track and on the drag strip, then document the whole thing to see which one reigns supreme. This is the first part of the series. In it, Salomon spends the entire episode giving each supercar proper introductions. None of the actual tests were done in this episode because Salomon’s apparently saving that for the second and third installments.

Be that as it may, we still get top-quality, film making production, which adds to the incredible build-up of seeing all five supercars in action. Salomon did a good job giving each car its turn in the spotlight, even pointing out that none of these exotics came from their manufacturers. They’re all customer cars, free from any modifications, and all running on stock tires.

We’re going to have to wait for episodes two and three to see how these tests end up going. As far as putting my money on any one of them, I’m going to steer clear of picking a favorite because all of them have as good a chance as any at being the best among the lot. Besides, my choice would’ve been the Koenigsegg One:1, except that it’s not part of the quintet.


PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Opens Showrooms In Manhattan And Miami

Although it has yet to launch the Chiron and the Veyron is sold out since early 2015, Bugatti has extended its presence in the United States by opening two new showrooms. Bugatti’s new dealers in North America are Manhattan Motorcars in New York and Braman Motors in Miami.

“North America is a very important market for Bugatti. About a quarter of our Veyron series, which is sold out, is located in North America and customers here are showing phenomenal interest in the next Bugatti super sports car,” said Dr. Stefan Brungs, a member of the Board of Management of Bugatti Automobiles at the inauguration of the new showroom in Manhattan.

The new showrooms were used to introduce a new brand design developed specifically for Bugatti dealers. The dealerships are dominated by blue, the company’s official brand color, and complemented by distinctive lines and clear surfaces “reminiscent of Bugatti super sports cars.” The concept includes a heritage section running films and animations highlighting Bugatti’s history, a comfortable lounge area with furniture from Bugatti Brand Lifestyle (including carbon-fiber armchairs), and adaptable background lighting with the company’s red oval logo. The new dealership concept will expand to other showrooms as well.

With these two new showrooms, Bugatti now has 27 dealers in 13 countries. Further dealerships are due to open in Munich, Monaco, and Tokyo over the next few months.

PostHeaderIcon Up Close with Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt “Khalifa”

Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt

Towards the end of its life as a production model, Bugatti Veyron spawned so many different editions, it really isn’t easy keeping track of them all. But among them all the Legend Editions were some of the most unique, and among them the Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt one of the most exquisite.

This is a Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt finished in two-tone brown carbon, and it is just a little bit more special than usual, owing to that fact that it’s nicknamed Khalifa, a hint at the owner’s royal status. He is apparently a Qatari prince, most likely the same guy who a while ago acted like an utter douchebag with his LaFerrari in Beverly Hills.

Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt was built in honor of Ettore Bugatti’s brother, Rembrandt. So no, it has nothing to do with the famous painter. Priced at $3 million when new, the “Rembrandt Bugatti” is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Its 8 litre W16 engine achieves an unparalleled torque of 1,500 Nm from 1,200 PS at 3,000-5,000 rpm, and can accelerate from 0-100 km in 2.6 seconds. With a maximum speed of 408.84 km/h with the roof down, the Vitesse is the fastest production roadster ever built.

PostHeaderIcon Christian Von Koenigsegg Drives The Bugatti Veyron Against Koenigsegg CCXR: Video

We would never accuse Koenigsegg founder Christian von Koenigsegg of sandbagging, but if ever there were an opportunity, this would be it. During its 2Fast Touzani Tour, online tech retailer Trust brought its 1,000-horsepower Bugatti Veyron to Koenigsegg headquarters in Sweden for some hypercar drifting antics and an impromptu rolling-start drag race between the Bug and a 1,000-horsepower (on E85) 2007 Koenigsegg CCXR. The twist? Christian von Koenigsegg was the one driving the Veyron! Surely, Christian isn’t the kind of guy who would use less than 100 percent of the Veyron’s power to let his own car win. Or is he?

Actually, the somewhat unscientific race was of little consequence and probably just for fun. Mr. Koenigsegg is one of nicest, most affable guys in the auto industry, and seems up for just about anything involving cars. Both the Veyron and CCXR are a few years old now, and had Koenigsegg brought a 2015 Koenigsegg One:1 to the fight, then the Bugatti would have been a spec in its rear-view mirror, and the same would probably go for the CCXR it had gone up against whatever Bugatti has next in its product pipeline.

Still, it’s always fun to see two incredibly fast cars go at it on a long strip of tarmac. So, place your bets and click through to see which comes out on top.


PostHeaderIcon Is This the Meanest Bugatti Veyron in the World?

black-grey-Bugatti Veyron-1

Even though Bugatti Veyron is now officially old news, they have made so many different editions of the car, you would still be surprised seeing them out in the real world. Check this one for example, snapped in Beverly Hills the other day. It is quite possibly the meanest looking Veyron we’ve ever seen.

This two-tone Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse – which if the number plate is to believed is an American Bugga and not a visiting Arab, thank you very much! – is specced-up by the owner to look dark and angry, and somewhat stealthy too. It features an Agate Grey body with metallic black roof, bonnet, engine cover, and aprons. The wheels and the air intakes, usually chrome-finished, are also blacked-out, and the windows are heavily tinted for the full effect.

black-grey-Bugatti Veyron-2

We like how the car’s turned out very much. It’s a refreshing change of course from what we usually see with the Bugatti Veyron, especially those artistic ones with unfathomable graphics and stripes. Kudos to the owner of this car for his, or her, great taste. Dare we say it is the coolest Veyron ever to come out of Molsheim? In our view it is!

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Chiron Spied Wearing with Heavy Camo

bugatti-chiron-spy

Looks like Volkswagen board of directors have signed off on the design of the new Bugatti Chiron super-hyper-ultra car. Up until now Chiron’s prototypes used to wear an awkward version of the Veyron’s body. But now for the first time the car was spotted in what is most likely its very own skin.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, we are talking about the Bugatti Chiron, the replacement for the Bugatti Veyron. This blurry spy photo shows the car as it’s getting camo’d up, ready to go out for a road test. The picture is not very revealing, but even so, you can clearly see the shape of Chiron’s new front bumper and headlights, and even in this low quality photo they look pretty special and utterly classy.

There is no definite date on when Bugatti Chiron will be released. The engineers have a humongous task ahead of them creating a worthy successor for a holder of many world records. It is almost certain that the Chiron will feature a hybrid powertrain in line with what we saw in the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918. Sources suggest 1,500 as the horsepower figure for this model, and a top speed of around 460 km/h. Just reading about those numbers makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up!

PostHeaderIcon Dubai Police Bugatti Veyron Gets its Own Promo Clip

Dubai Police Bugatti Veyron

Even Dubai Police themselves are astonished by some of the cars they have accumulated over the past year of so. There are a few multi-million dollar names in their collection, including a Bugatti Veyron which is the subject of this exclusive promo video. Apparently, the chief likes this one a lot more than the others!

In this video Dubai Police officers bring out the Bugatti Veyron patrol car for a quick showing off session which ends with a brazen in-your-face maneuver by the car towards the camera… as if to say: “that’s right bitches, we can do this sh*t and you can’t!”

Dubai Police has put together this awesome collection of exotic patrol cars solely for publicity purposes. They are a symbol of Dubai’s success and security, even though the latter stands on loose ground. There are more productive, and fun, things they can do with these cars though, like taking them to drag strips and challenge young drivers to try and beat them at the track rather than racing each other on pubic roads.

PostHeaderIcon Just an Ordinary Day: Bugatti Bonanza in Monaco

Bugatti Bonanza

With the summer just around the corner wealthy people from all over the world are converging in the South of France, mainly cities like Cannes and Monte Carlo. They, of course, bring with them their very best cars – it’s a vacation, after all – and that creates some pretty awesome scenes, like this scarcely believable Bugatti Veyron bonanza that was going on in Monaco just the other day.

In this video you get to see many different version of the Bugatti Veyron including the 16.4, the SuperSport, the Vitesse, a couple of Legends Edition, and a Mansory-tuned version.

Seeing all these exotic cars in the same place within walking distance of each other is pretty good fun for the onlookers. But we wonder if the owners enjoy it as much as the passers-by. I mean, they just get there and drive around in circles around the town all day at 10 km/h. Doesn’t seem awfully exciting to us, but then these guys get their joy out of being noticed by the less fortunate. So it all works out!

PostHeaderIcon These Racing-Inspired Desks Are Perfect Gifts

Office furniture tends to be pretty conservative in terms of its design, often minimalist to the point of being depressing to look at. Not every workplace is so set on spirit-crushing anonymity, but those that aren’t have a somewhat limited selection of practical furniture that’s also fun. But Design Epicentrum has car lovers covered with a new series of desks made to look like the front ends of supercars.

At the moment, the desks seem to come in only two varieties, Bugatti and Lamborghini (sold without any badging, presumably for legal reasons), although a number of different colors are offered. Given what must be a fairly limited market for such things, we wouldn’t count on any more models being introduced. The desks are also large, so space is a consideration, but they could certainly make for a cool reception desk, or a home office desk for someone who has the space. That person will also need some money, because the price is listed as “on request,” which is code for “expensive.” But the craftsmanship really is top notch, looking every bit like someone simply sawed the front off of an exotic. The design also blends the desk and car together well, making for the best desk/car combination you could hope for.

PostHeaderIcon What is the Perfect Car?

There’s no such thing as the “perfect car.” There — said it right off the bat. Not because I subscribe to the platitude that perfection is completely subjective, that beauty is in the eye of the beholder or any of that. Objective standards do exist. For instance, objectively, Scarlett Johansson probably looks better in a bikini than Steve Buscemi. Any dissenting opinion there? No? That’s because we can apply certain dimensional criteria, certain mechanical evaluations to determine who likely wears Spandex best. The same is true for non-human machines, like cars.

Even so, finding “perfection” that way means setting criteria, as opposed to expecting perfection as some kind of absolute. Absolute perfection is always an ideal. It’s kind of like the North Star. You can use it to navigate, to figure out which direction you’re going; but no matter how long you sail toward it, you’ll probably never get perceptibly closer. You’ve got earthly limitations in the here and now that kind of preclude the possibility.

So for this article, we’re going to stick to the earthly limitations of the here and now. We’ll look at our guiding star of ideal perfection first, just to get a navigation point. But from there, we’re on our own, left to sail those uncharted waters to find the closest thing to automotive perfection, sticking as closely as possible to the shores of today’s technology.

PostHeaderIcon XCAR Says Farewell To The Bugatti Veyron: Video

XCAR’s look back at the Bugatti Veyron is an unusual one, in that it feels much more like a review of a current model than any kind of retrospective. But if ever there was a car where this approach makes sense, it is the Veyron. Bugatti’s own obsession with top speed has encouraged many people to think of the car as nothing more than a collection of numbers, and in that sense it has become somewhat outdated in the decade since its launch. But the car is much more than that, and even the monstrous power, speed and acceleration figures aren’t nearly as important as what an accomplishment it was to make that kind of power usable, and so long before other companies really had that part of the equation nailed down.

This video talks a lot about the car’s speed. Not in terms of 0-60 times or top speed, but about what that speed is like on regular roads; even country roads, which is where most of the footage was shot. That’s because the Veyron wasn’t built to be a track-only machine, and even if it took 10 years for a review that acknowledges this, we finally have one here.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari LaFerrari Vs. Bugatti Veyron In A Drag Race: Video

Back in January, a video began circulating from the Vmax200 EVOmax event showing a Bugatti Veyron and a LaFerrari going head-to-head in a long-distance drag race held on a two-mile runway in London. From the video footage, the lighter hybrid Ferrari beat the all-engine Bugatti. Nobody likes losing in a race, but I have to imagine that the sting of defeat has to be even worse when you’re piloting the fastest car on the planet. Now it’s time for a rematch.

Held at Vmax200 Stealth, this race pits the same Bugatti against a new LaFerrari challenger, and supercar chaser extraordinaire Schmee150 was there to capture the multimillion dollar race on video. This time around, the more powerful Veyron easily beats the Ferrari hitting a top speed of 214 mph versus 206 mph, but weather likely played a key role. The video description says that the track was damp during this run, which is evident by the Ferrari struggling to get traction off the line giving the all-wheel-drive Bugatti the advantage.

As the track dried up, Schmee says that the Veyron later hit a top speed of 224 mph. Regardless of who wins, it never gets old watching two of the most expensive and powerful production cars on the planet going all-out.

PostHeaderIcon Making of Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale: Video

As a proper farewell for the 450th – and last – Bugatti Veyron ever made, the one-off La Finale was revealed earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show, and now Bugatti has released a short video that, like the car itself, celebrates 10 years of the fastest production car this planet has ever met. If you’ve ever wondered what it took to build the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale (or the 449 Veyrons that came before it), then you’re in for a treat.

Although most of the build process has been glossed over for time considerations, the highlights are there as La Finale is hand-built at Bugatti’s Molsheim, France headquarters. The highlight of the video is the glorious moment when the massive 8.0-liter quad-turbo W-16 engine and the seven-speed DSG are married to the main cabin of the car. The sheer size of the Veyron’s drivetrain components is absolutely remarkable.

Like the ending credits to a movie, the video ends by introducing us to some of the team members that have been responsible for building the Veyron. With the La Finale, the curtain has officially fallen on the Veyron, but the good news is that there is definitely a sequel coming.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Cristal Edition

When Bugatti introduced the Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale, the “last production unit” of the supercar, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, I honestly believed it would be the last Veyron to emerge from Molsheim. As it turns out, I was wrong, as a bespoke model delivered back in January just surfaced in the Interwebs to steal the show. It goes by the name Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Cristal Edition and was created for a Chinese collector who commissioned it for his girlfriend. There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as you fancy pink accents on a supercar.

Yup, this Veyron was wrapped in a two-tone, white-and-pink livery, which is probably why Bugatti didn’t bother to issue a press release or give it a proper introduction at an automotive event. With most Veyrons linked to classic Bugattis one way or another, I can understand why the French opted for a quiet delivery. On the other hand, the Cristal Edition isn’t the first pink Veyron to roam the streets, but more about that in the detailed review below.

PostHeaderIcon How The Bugatti Veyron Engine Is Built: Video

With the last of the 450 Bugatti Veyrons having been unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, this would be as good a time as any to remember what is probably the main reason behind the supercar’s enormous success: it’s 16-cylinder engine. Bugatti isn’t the first – although it will probably be the last – to fit a 16-cylinder powerplant in a production car, but it was the first to use a W-16 configuration.

If you ever wondered how the W16 monster is built, Carscoops recently came across an older YouTube video of the assembly line in Molsheim, France, where each of the 450 Veyrons were hand-built, including their powerplants. The footage was most likely taken closer to the model’s launch in 2005, which is why it’s probably not as glamorous-looking as you would expect. The most interesting part is probably around the 2:30 minute mark, where you can see that cylinder no. 3 was initially tagged with a different number.

Essentially composed of two W-8 engines united with a single crankshaft, with each four cylinders being fed by a turbocharger, the W-16 powerplant delivers between 987 horsepower in the original Veyron and 1184 horsepower in the Veyron SuperSport. Despite using a good deal of aluminum and titanium parts, the sheer size of the engine translates into a weight of around 900 pounds. With the seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission adding another 550 pounds or so into the equation, you can probably see why the Bugatti Veyron is such a heavy car.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Vs Koenigsegg Agera R: Video

As much as I love supercars, I’ve never been a fan of the Bugatti Veyron. Despite Bugatti’s claims, the Veyron has nothing to do with the brand’s racing origins. Unlike the EB110, the Veyron wasn’t developed with racing in mind. Bugatti built it for the sole purpose of becoming the world’s fastest production car in its attempt to shatter a record McLaren had held since 1993. I could also mention I find its potato-shaped design rather ugly, but I’m well aware that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Rants aside, from a performance standpoint, the Bugatti Veyron is indeed spectacular. It can hit in excess of 260 mph and it needs only 2.6 seconds to charge from 0 to 60 mph. However, these figures only tell part of the story. There’s Top Gear’s infamous Veyron vs F1 drag race, which the Bugatti won, but there’s a new video that proves the French hypercar has its own flaws, mainly a 4,162-pound weight problem.

The footage in question brings together the Veyron and the Koenigsegg Agera R, which has 1,140 horsepower, 43 fewer than its French counterpart. In the acceleration contest above, held at Germany’s Paupenberg track, the racing starts from 50 km/h (31 mph) and goes beyond 350 km/h (217 mph). Click play for the outcome.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse "La Finale"

As the world waits for the arrival of the Chiron, Bugatti has announced that the sun has officially set on that car’s predecessor, the Veyron. After 10 years of setting speed records around the world, Bugatti has produced the final Veyron ever, and it is aptly named “La Finale.”

Now, before you get up hopes of snatching up the last-ever Veyron, you’re too late. “La Finale” is already sold. However, the owner was kind enough to let the French showcase it at the Geneva Motor Show. where it will be displayed alongside the first-ever production Veyron from 2005. That should make for an incredible show stand!

La Finale represents the 450th example of the Veyron, and the 150th roadster model. To put that into context, Bugatti sold as many Veyrons in a decade that Ford sells F-Series trucks in the U.S. each day… before lunch. Wolfgang Dürheimer, president of Bugatti Automobiles, said that “an unprecedented chapter in automobile history has reached its climax” with the Veyron’s conclusion, but with the Chiron on the horizon (rumored for a 2017 introduction), there’s an entirely new chapter waiting to be written.

Updated 03/02/2015: Bugatti unveiled the official details and specs on the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale” – the last Veyron that the company will build before bringing a new successor for the supercar.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Gets World's Most Expensive Exhaust: Video

You can get a lot of car for $40,000. The Ford Mustang GT, Subaru WRX STI and Volkswagen Golf R all come to mind, but each is still cheaper than the QuickSilver Exhaust Systems Titan, titanium cat-back exhaust for the Bugatti Veyron. At £26,760 or a little under $42,000, QuickSilver claims it’s the most expensive exhaust system in the world.

In this video, fitted to a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, it sounds absolutely monstrous. Titanium systems tend to resonate higher, giving the exhaust note a slightly higher timbre, and in this case it definitely makes the Veyron’s quad-turbo, 1,200-horsepower, 8.0-liter W12 sound a bit more unhinged. Veyrons have a unique sound anyway, and while you would never say they sound bad, this gives it more of an edge. We’d love to hear what it sounds like under load outside a garage.

Unless you’re a certified Bugatti mechanic (cool job, by the way), installing QuickSilver’s Veyron exhaust doesn’t look like something you would want to attempt. Lots of expensive carbon-fiber bodywork has to come off, including the rear deck lid and a sizable panel above the rear bumper.

As pricy as they are, titanium exhausts don’t really offer many tangible benefits for the street over traditional steel systems, which is why they’re use is mostly limited to race cars and exotics. They heat and cool faster, but that only provides slightly more power at low engine temperatures. They’re considerably lighter, but when you’re working with a two-ton, multi-million dollar car, you’re probably just doing it because you can. Mostly, they just sound cool and turn pretty colors when they’re heated up.
