Bugatti Corporate Logo Milan-born Ettore Bugatti worked for other companies like Mathis and Deutz before he decided to open his own car company in France (Strasbourg). One Bugatti creation was the Type 30 made with 8 cylinders. That was in 1922. Two years later, the type 35 came out which were developed into two versions: 35A and 35B.

Bugattis were well known for the beauty of their designs (Ettore Bugatti was from a family of artists and considered himself to be both an artist and constructor) and for the large number of races they won. Today the name is owned by Volkswagen Group, who have revived it as a builder of limited production exclusive sports cars.
First seen in the 1999 Bentley Hunaudières concept car, the W16 would have four turbochargers and produce a quoted (metric) 1001 horsepower (see engine section for details on the power output). Top speed was promised at 407 km/h (253 mph), and the price was announced at €1 million.
The fuel tank can hold 100 litres If driving at top speed ,the fuel tank will be empty in 12 minutes. There has never been a car driving at these speeds ,accordingly Volkswagen requested Michelin to produce a special tire for this car The breaks are truly special ,you get the warranty that this car at 405 km/hr will be at a stand still in 10 secs …..
One thousand and one horsepower, sixteen cylinders, seven speeds and over 400km/h – transmission engineering challenges don’t come much tougher than Bugatti’s fabulous million-euro Veyron supercar. Tony Lewin reports on the support provided by Ricardo in the development and manufacture of one of the most sophisticated driveline systems ever conceived
The Veyron Buyer Every buyer except one, so far, has been male, and the demographic is predictably lofty: typically mid-40s to early 50s, net worth $200 million, owns 15 cars and puts about 1,500 miles on the Veyron in a year, according to Bugatti U.S. market manager John Hill.
The pure fascination of a brand Bugatti has always been the epitome of exclusivity, luxury, elegance, style, extraordinary design, and a great passion for automobiles.

If a Mclaren F1 traveling at 100 mph went past a stationary Bugatti Veyron, and the Veyron set off at full acceleration as the Mclaren passed, the Veyron would top 200 mph first.
High Performance The car’s safety systems have been designed to cope with its extraordinary performance, acceleration and speed. The single-piece carbon fiber monocoque alone scores maximum points in crash tests, while airbags give the driver and passenger additional protection.
The high-speed tires designed specially for the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 (for vmax. > 350 km/h), sizes 265-68 R 500 A (front) and 365-71 R 540
Another Bugatti Veyron 16.4 component with a safety element is the rear spoiler. It acts as a kind of ‘parachute brake’ during emergency braking. The spoiler tilts and the additional air resistance this generates reduces the braking distance to that of a lorry.
The Art of the Machine The W16 alloy engine developed by Bugatti for the Veyron 16.4 has a special and absolutely unique place in the history of sports car construction. Its design employs the space-saving VR principle with two particularly slender eight-cylinder blocks arranged at a 90° angle to each other.
