Bugatti News

Bugatti was founded in 1909 in Molsheim, France by Ettore Bugatti. The brand has made a name for itself building some of the most exclusive and fast cars ever made. While having often found itself in dire financial straits throughout its long history, Bugatti has been passed through many owners and is now controlled by the Volkswagen Group. The sole vehicle it produces today is the Veyron 16.4, which vies for the honor of being the most expensive and fastest production car in the world.

    Official: Bugatti brings three special Veyron Grand Sports to Dubai

    Production of the original Bugatti Veyron may have drawn to a close, but that doesn't mean the end of the Veyron altogether. Of the 150 examples of the Grand Sport earmarked for production, only 45 of them have been accounted for. That leaves another – carry the two, divide by the square-root of pi – 105 examples still available for order. And ...

    Video: Bugatti Veyron vs. Koenigsegg CCXR in white hot drag race
    1320702960

    Cars don't get much faster than the Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg CCXR. You want to go any faster, you'll need a top-fuel dragster or a Bonneville land speed record machine. That's why the two have been at each other's throats for as long as they've been around. While the two insane supercars may seem similar on paper – two seats, mid-engine, 1,000 ...

    '92 Honda Civic thinks its a Veyron, makes us chuckle
    1318856340

    Dressing up budget hatchbacks to appear to be something more than they are seems to be all the rage these days. Toyota iQ becomes Aston Martin Cygnet. Mini Cooper becomes the Rolls-Royce-inspired Goodwood edition. Even the Fiat 500 has had its Tributo Ferrari. But while most of these kinda make our eyes roll a little (or a lot), this latest privateer ...

    We've come to expect varying levels of insanity from eBay Motors. The site is like a magnet for the one-off, the strange and the bizarre, which is part of why we love it. This machine is no different. Based on an unspecified 1974 Lincoln, the vehicle has received a full cosmetic makeover in the image of a Bugatti. Which Bugatti? The owner isn't saying, ...

    Monterey: Bugatti Veyrons gather at the Quail

    A few years ago, we spotted four Bugatti Veyrons outside the Pebble Beach Lodge. Since only 300 examples will ever be built, we thought that to be a pretty rare sight. Consider that trumped. At the Quail Motorsports Gathering yesterday, no fewer than ten Bugatti Veyrons were parked on the grass. Four "regular" Veyron models, three Grand Sports, two Super ...

    Report: Could Bugatti manage a two-car lineup?
    1313755020

    For as long as anyone can remember, Bugatti has been a one-model marque. For the past seven years, that model has been the Veyron. Before that, it was the EB110. In the 1950s, it was the Type 101. In fact, you'd have to go back to the late 30s to find more than one line of vehicles coming out of Molsheim, when the Type 57, Type 46 and Type 55 all shared ...

    If there's anything the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport doesn't need, it's more power, right? After all, it's 1,001 horsepower is sufficient to push the convertible to speeds of 224 miles per hour with the top removed, or an astonishing 252 mph with the polycarbonate hard top firmly affixed above the occupants heads. Fast enough, right? Wrong. Anyone who's ...

    In the 1930s, the Bugatti Type 57 was, apart from its grand prix racers, the only vehicle offered by Molsheim. It gave rise to several body types, the most famous of which was the iconic Atlantic, but those represented only a handful of the 710 Type 57s that were built over its seven years of production.
