Bugatti Veyron crashes into lake!

Published by on Nov 16th, 2009, 2 Comments


The Bugatti Veyron driver has been identified being Andy House, the owner of Performance Auto Sales in Lufkin, a company that restores wrecked exotics.

Couldn’t spot the pelican he claimed causing him to swerve as he said earlier. The man’s handphone had slipped out of the car’s centre console and he reached to retrieve it from the floorboard, Houston Chronicle reported.

When he sat up, he was startled by a pelican flying low alongside the Bugatti and the front tyre subsequently strayed onto the shoulder of the road.

The man couldn’t regain control, the police told Houston Chronicle. There were no indications that the driver was speeding. (He should still be arrested)

Drag Race: Pagani Zonda F vs Bugatti Veyron

Published by on Oct 27th, 2009, 1 Comment

Regular readers by now should know that we’re big fans of TopGear, hence why we always look on some of their best shows. So how about checking out some of the world’s fastest two wheelers? James May is the lucky bastard to review the £825,000 Pagani Zonda F Roadster on Top Gears test track. The result is obvious – a bad-ass looking four wheeler that is offensively fast. But what if you have it running the track against the Bugatti Veyron in a drag race? Who’ll win? Check it out!

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Roadster

Published by on Aug 4th, 2008, No Comments

Just when I thought that Bugatti can’t come up with a new amazing, stunning, incredible (continue the list) new Veyron, here’s what they did. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Roadster. The new Veyron 16.4 which by the way comes with a removable roof, will receive its public debut at this year’s Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance, on August 16th, 2008.

With “innovative structural solutions” compensating for the lack of structural integrity which normally provided by a roof, they managed to come up with a car that is not sacrificing performance and safety for the looks. First one will be built in the Spring of 2009 and will be auctioned the next ya and the renowned Gooding auction at the Equestrian Center at Pebble Beach.

Guess we started the week with the right foot. I declare it the car of the week, no matter what.


Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir

 Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir

I don’t exactly know what introduction I could come up with for a new Bugatti ‘vehicle’ so I’ll be straightforward. Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir (black blood) is to be expected, with an all over black livery, new and special designed alloy wheels and front grille and an orange interior.  As if the original Veyron wasn’t enough, we’ve seen different versions like the Veyron FBG by Hermes or the Veyron Pure Sang, I am extremely curious to see what the price for the Sang Noir model will be, because I know the quality will be at its best.

More than 20% of Bugatti Veyrons, are in Dubai

Bugatti Veyron in the Desert

Following the Bugatti Veyron that got a parking ticket a few days ago, here is something new that you could be interested in. Did you know that about 1/5th of Bugatti Veyrons have been sold in Dubai? Consider the 1.5 million people population and the fact that 15 have been sold there and you get a pretty nice ratio, 1 supercar for every 100,000 people.

In the other direction, 37 units have been sold in Great Britain where they have a 60 million population so the rate is pretty bad. I guess business is doing great in Dubai if they have 15 millionaires to afford a Bugatti Veyron.

Bugatti Veyron Getting a Parking Ticket

Published by on Jan 30th, 2008, No Comments

If you were thinking that a joke can cheer a crowd you’re right. But did you know that a Police office that gives a ticket to a Bugatti Veyron that was illegally parked, had the same effect? Downtown Manchester is the place where this Veyron (picture below) got the £60 fine and I can tell you the people are happy!

I’m sure the guy will be just as wealthy after paying it (£30 – two weeks time) and will probably park there again and again until he’ll have his super car towed. That’s something I would be interested to see.

Plans for a street-legal faster Bugatti, in the works

Published by on Jan 12th, 2008, 9 Comments

“Project Lydia” is the new street-legal car that Bugatti is supposed to work on to make it faster than the Veyron, announced the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport. Though it’s just on paper right now, it is supposed to use a 12-cylinder engine that sports some 1,175 hp and tops at 400km/h (248 mph).

And like we wouldn’t have enough Bugatti rumors, “Project Lydia” is supposed to be a mix between racing and design with Bugatti’s characteristic front grille staying, a huge rear spoiler, front air splitter and the extreme lowered chassis and engine positioning. When it comes to performances, they expect a Nurburgring Nordschliefe lap time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds which is 1 minute better then the Veyron.

Here are a two more sketches on how it might look.

“Project Lydia” named after Ettor Bugatti’s wife Lydia, is going to cost a mere 2.5 Million euros and may become the new king of the ring with only 70 (lucky) owners getting their hands on it. I bet the Sheiks are alerted already, because in 2010 we may see it running nicely on those 20-inch big wheels.
