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 opens up about Veyron Vitesse with more details, images
    1331668800

    Fastest roadster ever. That's one heck of a claim, but if anyone can assert it, it's Bugatti. And the Alsatian automaker has brought 1,200 horsepower to back it up. What we're talking about, of course, is the Vitesse – the "best of both worlds" version of the famed Veyron. First announced in February and officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show ...

    Geneva: Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is where top speed goes topless
    1331027100

    You have to applaud an automaker like Bugatti. Not content with being second place in the production car top speed category, the automaker created the monstrous Veyron Super Sport which, with a top tested speed of 267.81 miles per hour, holds the record for the world's fastest production coupe. Now, here at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti has ...

    The Volkswagen Group is comprised of 11 brands producing 240 vehicles across 49 factories throughout the world. So the best way to show off the range of the VW family is to cram a few thousand journalists and VIPs into a massive makeshift stand to outline the Group's goals, what's in the pipeline and what you'll be able to buy later this year. To that ...

    Official: Bugatti presents new Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse for Geneva debut
    1329924540

    You've seen the Grand Sport. You've seen the Super Sport. Now meet the Super Grand Sport. Actually, Bugatti calls its latest version of the Veyron the Vitesse – French for "speed" – but it is essentially a combination of the best traits of the Grand Sport and Super Sport models. The Grand Sport, as you may recall, is the convertible (or ...

    Video: Arizona police upset over viral video of high-speed Bugatti
    1329171240

    A video surfaced on YouTube last week that purported to show a Bugatti Veyron being driven at near top speed on public roads. Mind you, "near top speed" for a Veyron still means well above 200 miles per hour. The YouTube account owner who uploaded the video claims that the car made seven runs and reached speeds in the range of 215-225 mph. That's well ...

    Confirmed: Bugatti orders two more years worth of transmissions... but where are they going?
    1327707000

    The automotive industry tends to work by certain norms and patterns. For example, by the time one model is ready to be phased out, we usually have a pretty good idea of how its replacement is shaping up and when it will appear. But Bugatti, of course, is no typical automaker. The House that Ettore Built has, for the past seven years, subsisted on the ...

    Official: Bugatti showcases the Bumblebee of Veyrons in Qatar
    1327437000

    With a gazillion color options for every little part of the Bugatti Veyron, there's no reason why any two examples should be alike. (Except for maybe an inverse correlation between wealth and imagination.) So it would stand to reason that every Bugatti should be considered a special edition of one. And that certainly appears to be the case, as the French ...

    It's not every day that a unique Bugatti debuts. But it sure seems that way. The ultra-high-end automaker cranks out unique one-off versions of the Veyron for discerning and well-heeled customers around the world, and this is their latest. Called the Edition Merveilleux (from the French for "marvelous"), this special Super Sport model is distinguished by ...

    Report: Infamous Bugatti offshore excursion going to trial for insurance fraud [w/video]

    It appears the gentleman who piloted his Bugatti Veyron into a Texas lagoon has run into a spot of legal trouble. The insurance company that paid out $2 million for the trashed exotic is calling fraud on the whole scenario, and a federal judge has decided that the claim should go before a jury. Andy House of Lufkin, Texas, originally purchased the Veyron ...

    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 ...

    eBay Find of the Day: 1974 Lincoln-based 'Bugatti' is a piece of work

    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, ...

    The Galibier is dead. Long live the Galibier. Plans are reportedly moving ahead at Bugatti headquarters in Mulsheim, France, to succeed the Veyron with a version of the Galibier concept super-sedan unveiled back in 2009. But before the company's CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer makes the final pitch by the end of the year to the board of the Volkswagen Group ...

    Report: Bugatti Galibier sedan put on hold because it's not outrageous enough

    Bugatti builds truly outrageous automobiles that stretch our perceptions of performance and personal wealth. The Veyron currently serves as the automaker's only ambassador into the world of high-speed and exotic engineering. Bugatti executives are looking to add a second steed to the stable, and we believe the Galibier sedan would make a good fit. It ...

    Jay Leno seems to own just about every car he's ever desired, but not even the late-night talk show host has a Bugatti Type 51. So we're sure it was with great anticipation that Mr. Leno took delivery of a gorgeous, race-ready Type 51 for a few minutes in his envy-inducing garage. Beyond the jump is the latest installment of Jay's garage series. Leno is ...

    Just how much sport can you dial in to the Bugatti Veyron? It looks like we're about to find out. In one corner we have the Veyron Grand Sport, the targa-roofed roadster of the epic supercar. In the other, the Veyron Super Sport, the even more powerful version that claims the record for the fastest production automobile. Where they meet is what we ...

    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 ...

    Monterey: Bugatti Veyron L'Or Blanc drips exclusivity

    At first glance, this Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport appears to be one of those special chrome-clad customs giving off a series of strange, wavy reflections from a series of overhead lights. Upon closer inspection, however, that's not the light playing tricks on you – it's the two-tone finish, which looks like it's been spread across the Veyron L'Or ...

    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 ...
