I think what contributes most to contemporary supercars’ presence today is their sheer size. They’re not especially tall, but, man, are they long and freaking wide. You can especially see how they’ve grown when you see a ‘90s supercar like the Bugatti EB110 next to a regular car like the Audi A4.
It supposedly costs about $20,000 to change the oil in a Bugatti Veyron, which admittedly looks like a big enough pain to warrant that much. But that’s also the day price to rent Bugatti’s aging but still terrifyingly powerful supercar, in case you had some loose change and weren’t sure how to use it.
The company once known for its 16-cylinder engines and speed limiters for its cars’ own good delivers the final blow, saying it, too, may add an SUV to its lineup. Thus, we all fall, clasping at the backstabbing, crossover- and SUV-driven puncture wounds from every automaker we once thought pure.
Open up a dictionary, and under the definition for ‘class’ you’ll probably find a picture of a Bugatti. These are cars that generally radiate elegant beauty through their sleek curves and undeniable speed. But… not everyone can always be perfect all the time.
In doing the unthinkable, Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Australian website CarAdvice there won’t be another 16-cylinder Bugatti engine after this one. Preposterous! Who could imagine a future where people could, potentially, get close to counting the cylinders in their Bugatti on their... fingers?
I know you’re out there, Lego fans. I know plenty of y’all also spent long hours of your childhood piecing together the luxury cars of your dreams long before you even knew how to read an RPM gauge, pretending your little Lego self was actually driving a super-sleek Ferrari. Well, boys and girls, Bugatti has decided…
The 2019 Bugatti Divo is lighter, sharper and tuned more for performance driving down a back road and less for the the oozing luxury and straight-line speed of the Bugatti Chiron. If you’re filthy rich, you could think of it as the enthusiast’s Bugatti.
When you think of Bugatti today, you think of the Veyron and the Chiron. They are incredible feats of engineering, of course, but you could hardly see them as race cars (thought I wouldn’t say no if Bugatti were to ever make them into race cars). But just 25 years ago, Bugatti was racing in the legendary EB110, and a…
Despite the world oohing and ahhing over the Bugatti Veyron, the car was never that compelling to me. Its all-wheel drive system probably had something to do with it and that there were plenty of other fast and expensive things that were much more exciting. But a Veyron with a rear-wheel drive conversion? Now you have…
Do you ever gaze at the stars and lose yourself in the never-ending potential of the open universe? About how there’s so much out there and anything’s possible? Have you ever done that while sitting in a Bugatti Chiron? Well, ya can now.
Good day sir or madam. Do excuse me for bearing bad news, but it’s come to my attention that your Bugatti Chiron has been recalled. You will soon be contacted by a team of “Flying Doctors,” who will handle everything for you. Because that’s the kind of care you get when you spend over $1 million on a car.
Annual service for the Bugatti Veyron is alleged to cost $20,000, so you might assume that working on the car is difficult. Your assumption is correct. Just watch what the team from Las Vegas-based exotic car rental company Royalty Exotics has to go through just to get access to the fluids and air filters.
Owners of the Bugatti Chiron already know the heady thrill that comes with knowing that the car kept immobile in their air conditioned garages is the fastest in the world, if they were ever to drive it, which they won’t. Now, 40 very lucky money-gorged fools can spend almost six million dollars on a new version of the…
The Bugatti Veyron is the kind of car you see driving around a city center at five miles an hour, at best, or sitting in a climate-controlled garage at worst. That’s what makes it so shocking to see one being used to all of its abilities: doing 1184 horsepower all-wheel drive donuts in the dirt.
The Bugatti Chiron is an absolute engineering marvel, and its W16 is as well, with a twin-to-quad turbo setup that makes 1,500 horsepower while not weighing any more than its predecessor in the 1000-horsepower Veyron. But how much does that engine weigh, exactly? A ton. Well, almost.
Building cars is hard, as we all know (some more than others). There’s a lot more to the process than just slapping something together, handing it off to a guy in an ugly polo shirt who says things like “What’s it gonna take for me to get you into this today?”, and and calling it a day. Bugatti, which is no stranger…
When I opened my laptop Monday, I saw a story on how Bugatti can personally monitor customer cars and fly technicians out on a whim. It reminded me of my Saturday: eyeballing my odometer, deciding I needed an oil change and then cleaning dark, burning gunk out of the cat scratches on my hand for 15 minutes.
With hands burned and blistered by a red-hot steering wheel and a head still reeling from a long night of sex and champagne, former cabaret dancer Hellé Nice won the first all-female Grand Prix at Montlhéry, France in 1929. Thus began a short but victory-filled career wrought with tragedy and controversy in between…
In the early days of motorsports, when race cars were lithe and elegant slips of steel, it was pretty common to see their racing numbers painted on their front grilles. Today, it’s an underutilized aesthetic. Let’s all paint numbers on our cars’ faces!
The Bugatti Chiron was never a car you were supposed to track. It was meant for impressing fellow yachters and high-speed, straight-line runs. Bugatti wants to change that with the new Chiron Sport.
