SSC Ultimate Aero To Launch On August 8; Will It Defeat The Bugatti Veyron?

Published by on Jul 27th, 2010, No Comments

The second generation Aero, called the Ultimate Aero, from Shelby Sports Cars will be unveiled by the company on August 8th at the Boeing Flight Museum in Seattle. The Ultimate Aero is SSC’s attempt to regain its title of “fastest road car in the world” from current title holder Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

The Bugatti Veyron had achieved its title after breaking the 255.83 mph record set by the previous model of the Aero called the Ultimate Aero TT. The new Ultimate Aero will require more than the 1,183 hp present in the Aero TT to become faster than the Veyron Super Sport, which has a 1,200 hp-engine and has set a record top speed of 268 mph.

The designer of the new Ultimate Aero, Jason Castriota, will also have to make sure that the design does not cause aerodynamic drag, besides ensuring better power features for the car.

So does the Veyron Super Sport have a reason to be scared? The answer will be revealed on August 8.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Smashes Speed Record

Published by on Jul 5th, 2010, No Comments

Who is the fastest on the tarmac? If you thought it was the Shelby SuperCars’ Aero SSC TT that fits the bill as the fastest production car in the world, think again!

Bugatti has climbed on to the top position, post a June 26 drive when test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel drove an orange-and-black Veyron 16.4 Super Sport to an average top speed of 268 mph (431 kph).

The event that got underway at the VW Group’s test facility at Ehra-Leissien saw the Veyron Super Sport tumble all high-speed records. The question as to who is the fastest has been remaining unanswered for quite a while now.

The Veyron Super Sport is a much higher version that the usual Veyron we usually get to see. The company has thrown in additional power and has increased it to 1,200 hp, while the quad turbo W16 would return torque at 1,106 pound-feet.

The car has ensured this via its enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers. The company has also incorporated in the Veyron Super Sport a redone suspension that is capable of managing aero downforce at speeds about 260 mph.

$2.9 Million for the First Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Roadster

Published by on Aug 19th, 2008, 2 Comments

No, we’ll probably never afford to buy a Bugatti Veyron but at least we can read about it on Car Blog, right? Okay, here’s the deal. Apparently the first Grand Sport Roadster version, which is actually a street-legal beast, is going to be sold for $2.9 million. Those are American dollars, indeed, which makes it one of the most expensive cars on Earth, with the most powerful and advanced technology under the hood.

The official price is 1.4 million euros (~ 2 million dollars) excluding taxes so the lucky owner of the first new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Roadster only paid $900,000 to be first. Auctioneers Gooding & Co. too care of it. Here’s the video:

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.

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.
