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.

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.

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 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.

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…

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.

Paying $10,000 For A Bugatti Chiron Model Engine Seems Rather Silly Paying $10,000 For A Bugatti Chiron Model Engine Seems Rather Silly

Life is full of silly things, a lot of which would be cool if they weren’t so silly. Take this model of a Bugatti Chiron engine: It’d be a great conversation piece on your LED-backlit display wall of rare, expensive automotive memorabilia dusted with diamonds for extra shine, but maybe not for $10,000.

The Chiron Is So Fast Bugatti Had To Use Another Chiron To Film Its Record 249 MPH Run The Chiron Is So Fast Bugatti Had To Use Another Chiron To Film Its Record 249 MPH Run

The Bugatti Chiron is fast. It’s really fast, if you want specifics—so fast Bugatti puts a speed limiter on it because modern tires can’t handle the pressure speeds near 300 mph would put on them. So, naturally, to film its record 249-mph Chiron run, Bugatti had to use something just as fast: another Chiron.

The Bugatti Chiron Just Ripped From Zero To 249 MPH Back To Zero In A Record 42 Seconds The Bugatti Chiron Just Ripped From Zero To 249 MPH Back To Zero In A Record 42 Seconds

If you’re a hypercar company, impressing clients with big numbers is kind of the name of the game (after all, this segment is all about bragging rights). If you’re Bugatti, and your $3 million Chiron hasn’t achieved the ultimate top-speed bragging right yet, you’ve got to try other stunts—like this zero to 249 mph…

The Best Bugatti For The Road Is A Replica Of The 1924 Type 35

Top Gear’s Chris Harris got to spend a lot of time on open roads with the new Bugatti Chiron hypercar, and yet all of that new complicated fussy stuff was no match for an experience that dates back almost 100 years.

The Bugatti Chiron Was Almost A Hybrid And The Next One Definitely Will Be The Bugatti Chiron Was Almost A Hybrid And The Next One Definitely Will Be

In news that makes perfect sense, Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer has pretty much already confirmed that the next record-setting Bugatti hypercar will have to go hybrid.

You're A Fool If You Buy A Bugatti Chiron Because I Have A Much Better Idea You're A Fool If You Buy A Bugatti Chiron Because I Have A Much Better Idea

When I ask people what’s the point of a Bugatti Chiron, the $3 million engineering marvel with capabilities virtually nobody who buys one will ever remotely tap, I’m usually told the point is “bragging rights,” like that’s not an idiotic thing. The Chiron, though, fails at the most coveted bragging right, so what’s…

Why The Bugatti Chiron Probably Won't Hit 300 MPH Why The Bugatti Chiron Probably Won't Hit 300 MPH

The world’s most powerful production car, the nearly $3 million Bugatti Chiron, has been out for almost a year and a half now. But we still don’t know its top speed, and we won’t for a while—a Bugatti test driver said the closer the car gets to 300 mph, the less likely it is that modern tires can handle the pressure.

Turn Your Ears Toward The Bugatti Chiron Running The 'Ring

The Bugatti Chiron doesn’t operate like other cars. It’s on a different plane of speedxistence. So it’s funny to see one testing on the Nürburgring, as funny to see as it is wonderful to hear.

What It's Like Developing One Of The Most Technologically Advanced Supercars Ever

The Bugatti Veyron was a world-beater when it debuted in 2006, representing the very best automotive engineering the world had ever seen. Developing a sequel—the Chiron—that could best such a giant was a staggeringly difficult task; here’s how Bugatti did it.
