This Veyron is loaded with: 8.0 liter quad-turbo W16, automatic transmission, engine turned
interior accents, navigation, red contrasting stitching, Burmiester audio, polished wheels, heated seats, cruise control, car cover, battery charger and much more. The tires are up to date and a fresh service has just been performed by Bugatti of Beverly Hills.

Ettore Arco Isidoro Bugatti (1881 – 1947) was an Italian born industrial designer living in then German town of Molsheim in the Alsace region of what is now France. A cascade of designs came from Bugatti’s drawing boards, not just automobiles, but luxurious train cars in the great Art Deco tradition, WWI and WWII aircraft and a host of other industrial designs which kept his company alive during The Great Depression and both World Wars.

However, the Bugatti name will be forever linked to some of the most successful and, frankly,
stunning cars of Grand Prix racing’s earliest eras. Arguably Bugatti’s masterpiece was the Type 35 which from the model’s debut in 1924 and through several iterations to 1930, literally won thousands of Grands Prix and road races all over the world with immortal drivers such as Louis Charavel, Louis Chiron and Rene Dreyfus to name a few.

Bugatti’s signature style included the brilliant French Racing Blue livery and the iconic
horseshoe-shaped radiators, all extremely light and nimble versus a virtual onslaught of huge cars from competitors such as Bentley which Bugatti referred to as “the fastest trucks in the world”.

Bugatti was known for their straight 8 engines with all mechanical parts were either rectangular or cylindrical, each model a feat of modern engineering and a record of success which may never be duplicated. Bugatti was only supplanted in Grand Prix racing by the fully government funded Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union “Silver Arrows” cars of the late 1930’s. Not satisfied and not sitting still while dominating the world’s racing scene, Bugatti became
obsessed with creating a 16-cylinder engine as seen in some of his WWI aircraft for his Grand Prix cars along with other unheard of innovations for automobiles such as super-charging and
turbo-charging. Bugatti’s 16-cylinder cars became a reality with the Type 47 of 1933 which featured a U16 engine and again with the Type 67 which ran in a V16 configuration in 1939. The engineering of the 16 cylinder engines was extremely advanced for the time. Bugatti mated two straight 8 motors together with complicated timing chains keeping the timing in synch between the two banks of cylinders. However, the V16 engines were deemed too heavy and unreliable for racing as the timing issues were never really sorted and they were tabled in favor of lighter, more nimble and reliable 4 and 8 cylinder engines moving forward.

The Modern World:
Bugatti’s 16 cylinder dream finally came to fruition nearly 70 years later with the debut of the
Veyron in 2005. Modern electronics with complicated timing and fuel injection systems in an
innovative W formation put an end to the quandary of making such an engine lightweight, reliable and powerful as they should be in theory.

The quad-turbo layout approach had already been utilized on the EB110 V12s but this time working with the 1001BHP W16 and a top speed of 253MPH, the Veyron has a Hewlett-Packard iPaq HX2000 PDA running Bugatti’s own custom software while monitoring all of the car’s vital functions while keeping things in synch.

The iPaq also serves as the conduit for pairing a phone with Bluetooth to the car, and runs a
utility called Bugatti View, which gives drivers a summary of the car’s activities. It presents the pressure of all four tires and reports on how much engine power has been used while driving, the car’s average speed, the lateral and longitudinal acceleration and even tire temperatures.

The Bugatti Veyron was the first production road going automobile which featured over 1000BHP available anywhere. And, naturally, the original MSRP price-tag of $1,250,000 was through the roof. But it was the fastest car on the planet and it established the benchmark for most of the hyper-cars: the 2005 Bugatti Veyron was, and still is, a beast on the

It wasn’t all easy though as early development of the Veyron saw some unusual teething issues, mainly aerodynamic in nature as one car famously took off and tumbled end over end during a high-speed test on the German Autobahn with company president Ferdinand Piëch in the passenger seat.

After some further aero refinements meant to keep the Veyron planted, yet another one left the ground, this time in an open public event while doing demonstration laps at Laguna Seca Raceway during Monterey Car Week. The excitement over a 1001BHP car that could achieve 250+MPH was cooled a bit until a solution to the aero issues could be sorted and buyers had to wait until Bugatti engineers could find the cause.

After Volkswagen Group subsidiary Audi AG bought the Bugatti brand, the goal was to make the most astonishing supercar in the world. And, so it did, when the Veyron appeared. Its massive bodywork, enormous power and strange quad-turbo on a W16 engine were a marvel of engineering. The short front and integrated greenhouse and engine compartment look were certainly very special features. The interior features the best materials and finishes available, perhaps only rivaled in this department by Rolls-Royce. The seats are both comfortable and supportive, with adjustable bolsters on the side. On the big, central console covered in aluminum, there are two air-vents, one dial and few buttons for the HVAC and one dial plus few buttons for the audio system. In keeping to its EB roots, no fancy LCDs or touch-screens, the instrument cluster has only dials.

But the main feature of the car is the 1001BHP engine that is mated to a 7-speed dual- clutch
gearbox developed especially by the F1 gearboxes manufacturer Ricardo, in the U.K. Bugatti beyond all others, began current iteration of the hypercar revolution with the Veyron
followed by the likes of Pagani as well as perennial contenders Koenigsegg, Hennessy, Mosley and newcomer Czinger into the 300MPH club and mantle of “World’s fastest production car”.
Superlatives about the Bugatti Veyron 16.4: “The Bugatti Veyron is quite the most stunning piece of automotive engineering ever created. At a stroke then, the Veyron has rendered everything I’ve ever said about any other car obsolete. It’s rewritten the rule book, moved the goalposts and in the process, given Mother Nature a bloody nose.” Jeremy Clarkson for Top Gear. “From rest, the car leaves civilly, gentlemanly, with almost no wheelspin or tire squeal. It
accelerates briskly for roughly one second, until the turbos understand that you mean business. Then there is a deafening roar, the nose lifts, and the car feels as if it’s making a serious attempt to claw itself into the air. The first time you’re about three seconds into this
experiment, you, too, will lift. For one thing, you’ll be close to rear- ending a family in a Ford
Explorer. For another, you’ll need a moment to recalibrate what you’ve hitherto considered
cheek-rippling forward thrust.” John Phillips for Car & Driver. “Stupendous and ridiculous at the same time, the 2008 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 sets a new standard for supercars.” Edmunds
“Far from being a huge challenge to drive, the 1000BHP Bugatti is so far proving to be a very
friendly device. The ride is firm but cosseting, and the steering is outstanding. Considering the size of the front tyres, the weighting at the steering wheel is extraordinarily good, and there’s a constant chatter of information coming via the leather-rimmed wheel. Turning either side of dead centre simply requires a linear increase in effort, gently building as lock increases. It’s easily the best steering I’ve encountered on any car from the VW Group, and it
reinforces the reassuring feeling of connectedness.” Harry Metcale for EVO.
