Bugatti Won't Make Another 16-Cylinder Engine Bugatti Won't Make Another 16-Cylinder Engine

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?

Please Let Me Drive This Life-Size Lego Bugatti Chiron Please Let Me Drive This Life-Size Lego Bugatti Chiron

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 the 236 MPH $5.8 Million Enthusiast's Bugatti The 2019 Bugatti Divo Is the 236 MPH $5.8 Million Enthusiast's Bugatti

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.

Here's How Bugatti Built Its Two Most Famous EB110 Race Cars Here's How Bugatti Built Its Two Most Famous EB110 Race Cars

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…

These Crazy Geniuses Converted a Bugatti Veyron to RWD and Now It's a Manic Donut Machine These Crazy Geniuses Converted a Bugatti Veyron to RWD and Now It's a Manic Donut Machine

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.

Your Bugatti Chiron Has Been Recalled Your Bugatti Chiron Has Been Recalled

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.

Changing the Oil in a Bugatti Veyron Is a Huge Pain in the Ass Changing the Oil in a Bugatti Veyron Is a Huge Pain in the Ass

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.

New Bugatti Chiron Divo Will Be Faster And Handle Better In Ways No One Will Ever Use New Bugatti Chiron Divo Will Be Faster And Handle Better In Ways No One Will Ever Use

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…

Holy Shit Someone Actually Used A Bugatti Veyron

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's Engine Alone Weighs Almost 1,000 Pounds The Bugatti Chiron's Engine Alone Weighs Almost 1,000 Pounds

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.

Lazy Automaker Finally Builds 100th Car Lazy Automaker Finally Builds 100th Car

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…

Writing About The Car Industry Constantly Reminds Me Of How Much Money I Don't Have  Writing About The Car Industry Constantly Reminds Me Of How Much Money I Don't Have 

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.

The Former Cabaret Dancer Who Became 'The Bugatti Queen' And The Fastest Woman Alive The Former Cabaret Dancer Who Became 'The Bugatti Queen' And The Fastest Woman Alive

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…

When Cars Have Numbers Painted On The Grille: Hell Yeah When Cars Have Numbers Painted On The Grille: Hell Yeah

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 Sport Saves Weight With Carbon Fiber Windshield Wiper Arms The Bugatti Chiron Sport Saves Weight With Carbon Fiber Windshield Wiper Arms

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.

Volkswagen Made An Even Weirder Engine Before The Bugatti W16 Volkswagen Made An Even Weirder Engine Before The Bugatti W16

The quad-turbo W16 in use in current Bugattis is a real engineering marvel, made of two banks of narrow-angle VR8 cylinder banks and quad-turbocharged. But before it was an ever stranger looking engine: the three-banked W18.

Bugatti Wants To 3D Print The Chiron's Brake Calipers Bugatti Wants To 3D Print The Chiron's Brake Calipers

3D printing has given people a whole new way of manufacturing and designing things, including folks in the automotive industry. Bugatti, for example, is looking to 3D print brake calipers. This is actually a really cool development that could absolutely change the future of component manufacturing. While I’m sure this…

Dyno Testing A Bugatti Chiron Makes Enough Electricity To Power People's Homes Dyno Testing A Bugatti Chiron Makes Enough Electricity To Power People's Homes

I know the Bugatti Chiron isn’t normally considered a “green” car, but there’s at least one stage in its life where it does give something back to the environment: a burst of electrical power. Of course, it’s still fundamentally a ridiculous vehicle the capabilities of which virtually no one who buys it will ever…

Bugatti's Recalls Are A Little Different Than Everyone Else's Bugatti's Recalls Are A Little Different Than Everyone Else's

Last week, Bugatti said that it was recalling 47 Chirons because of possible bad welds in seat recliner brackets. Hilariously, they estimated that one percent, or just less than half of a single Chiron, was affected. They also said their team of “Flying Doctors” would solve everything.
