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.

    Having a ruff day on the road? Don't take it out on other drivers, do what dogs do when they're out for a ride. Director Keith Hopkin takes to California's highways and byways and films eight dogs "doing what they love to do," he says on his Vimeo channel. The video captures that pure enjoyment of a dog's nose in the wind, the sun on his fur and not ...

    Looks like Bugatti is finally getting a handle on this YouTube phenomenon. The French supercar firm has uploaded a trio of videos showing off its current and future cars; namely, the Veyron coupe and the 16C Galibier. What Bugatti has clearly not figured out, on the other hand, is the definition of a teaser. While the slowly drawn out shots showing the ...

    It takes a lot to grow jaded at the thought of a one-of-a-kind, seven-figure, record-breaking supercar, but that's what's happened after this many years of special edition Bugattis. The latest: a unique version of the Grand Sport roadster created for the Beijing Motor Show and one lucky (read: obscenely wealthy) customer. Called the Wei Long edition, ...

    We may have gotten used to it by now, but the bottom line is that the Bugatti Veyron is an astonishing feat of engineering. The task of summing it all up, then, would fall to one Jeremy Clarkson. In addition to hosting BBC's celebrated Top Gear and penning columns in an array of magazines and newspapers, Jezza was tapped by the people behind the Xbox ...

    In the automotive realm, there's nothing quite like the Bugatti Veyron, which, in convertible form, is known as the Grand Sport.

    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 ...

    You've seen the Grand Sport. You've seen the Super Sport. Now meet the Super Grand Sport.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 appears the gentleman who piloted his Bugatti Veyron into a Texas lagoon has run into a spot of legal trouble.

    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 ...
