When it comes to power, Bugatti and Suzuki are probably sitting on the opposite poles. But there always are ways for them to get together, like this one. The Bugatti Veyron you see here started life as a Suzuki Esteem/Cultus. Now the Suzuki Esteem is quite a humble car, a 1.3L engine that puts out a modest 85bhp, which would be only a fraction of the power that is commanded by the beast called Veyron with a 16.4-L W16 engine pumping out 1001bhp.
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.
The Bugatti Veyron is all sold out, but the targa top version of the car is still available for those who have enough money. The supercar manufacturer has come up with three new looks for the Grand Sport, and will be showcasing them at the Dubai International Motor Show. You know, the place where people will lap up exclusives like these.
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.
Bugatti has taken wraps off a brand new, one-off Veyron and it’s a lot different than the “usual” looks you’d expect from a car. L’Or Blanc was created in association with Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur who used porcelain on the car to give it these splendid looks and style. L’Or Blanc (means White Gold) will only see one edition built, with a price tag of $2.4 million.
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.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is officially the fastest street legal production car in the world, and it is one heck of a beast. Parmigiani has made a watch to go along the supercar. Bugatti’s test driver Pierre-Henri Raphanel wore the Parmigiani Bugatti Super Sport watch when he took the supercar for its record-setting run. What Parmigiani calls “The Fastest Watch in the World” will be limited to a run of 200 units, and cost a whopping $259,000 apiece.
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.
The Bugatti Veyron is one smokin’ hot car that goes to amazing speeds. This 1:18 scale model won’t really move fast, but chances are that if you are going to buy this, you most likely can already afford a Veyron or maybe two. The model weighs 7 kilos and is made of solid 24ct gold and platinum, plus 7.2ct single cut flawless diamonds for the front grille. Only three models will be made, and each is more expensive than the car itself. While you can get the Veyron for about $1.4million, each model costs roughly $3 million.
The Bugatti you see here was built by Students at China’s Xi’an University. They used 10,000 discarded cigarette packs from their classmates to create this car. Quite unexpectedly, the car can drive. Well, that must be attributed to the fact that the Bugatti Veyron skin actually sits atop a low-speed electric car. The car was built for awareness on World No Smoking Day, but considering they collected all those packs from classmates, we’re inclined to think otherwise. Blurry image gallery after the jump.
