With great power come inexplicably large names. The latest special edition Bugatti Veyron is the Black Bess. Belonging to the Bugatti Legends series, the new supercar pays homage to the Type 18 Black Bess. One of the fastest street legal cars of its age, the Type 18 made quite a mark in the pre World War I era.
Displayed at the Geneva Motor Show, the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is the roadster version of the Veyron Super Sport. The topless version gets its power from the same 8.0-liter W16 engine employing four turbochargers to drop 1,184bhp of raw power and 1106 lb-ft of torque.
When you want something real bad, you are going to get it. Probably except the part where what you want is a $1.6 million supercar, and buying one of those isn’t exactly easy. If you’re Mike Duff, you are going to build one of your own. Of course it won’t perform even nearly as well as the real Bugatti Veyron, but a 2002 Mercury Cougar donning the looks of the supercar is prize enough.
We’ve seen the Bugatti Veyron shaped Bugatty mobile phone before, and though this phone looks much like the earlier one, it has the spellings of Bugatti right. In fact, this phone has gone another step and has stamped the Bugatti logo all over. This car shaped mobile phone, as the vendor calls it, is the model HooD. It has a 2MP camera in the windscreen, a 2.8-inch TFT touchscreen, dual sims and 8 GB card support. Apparently, you can take off the targa top and have a look at the car’s 2-seat interior, or simply remove it all to have access to the dual-sims and battery for the phone. Costs $118.
The formidable Bugatti Veyron is about to go out of the production scene. Creating a worthy successor to what was once the fastest street legal car would have been one tough job, but Bugatti has accomplished it, and done it well. Meet the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, the 1200hp successor to the 1001hp Veyron. The new car also has 1,106 pound-feet of torque and revised aerodynamics.
Lego enthusiast Sheepo has created the well known supercar in Lego, and not just that, the Bugatti Veyron even gets a working sequential seven speed transmission. The fully remote-controlled car also has a fully independent suspension and a retracting spoiler. Video after the jump.
