Bugatti is preparing to make the launch of the year, maybe even of the decade, with the brand new Chiron model.
The stakes were high, considering the high standards that Veyron has previously imposed. Nevertheless, the brand wants to revolutionize the automotive world and bring something different into the picture.
Well, Chiron won’t be that different from Veyron, when it comes to shape and design lines.The entire design is signed by Guilherme Kataoka, who has taken some elements from Bugatti Roadster, as well.
A true Bugatti fan will instantly recognize the traditional Bugatti front grille and lateral profile.Let’s just wait and see how the new Bugatti Chiron will look like in reality.
When you take passion and lots of imagination and put them together, you get Bugatti La Batarde.
This is what 3 professionals from Italy and Columbia came up with after some good hours of work spent in Photoshop, clay modeling and alias modeling.
Bugatti La Batarde is a project developed for the Bugatti brand, Volkswagen group at the sixth edition of the Politecnico Milano, the master in Auto Design. The concept was presented in July 2015, at the Audi Univers in Germany, Ingolstadt.
La Batarde tries to remake the classical lines, characteristic of Bugatti and upgrade it to a supercar, worthy of being called a piece of art.
This is the ultimate Bugatti Roadster, planned to produce 1000 hp from its W16 engine. This creation belongs to Guilherme Kataoka, who hasn’t made any info on the technical features or propulsion public.
This Roadster has very much in common with Bugatti Type 57. We can also spot some Zenos E10 and Lamborghini Aventador lines in its design.
Nevertheless, Bugatti Roadster is very original, in comparison with the recent Bugatti models. The lights are differently positioned and the traditional Bugatti grille has suffered some modifications.
Bugatti Roadster is a “Love it or leave it” type of car. There will probably be folks out there that will love it like crazy and there will be people that will not even want to take a second look.
There are cars out there that managed to change the automotive industry and take it into a better direction.
Supercars used to be perceived as on the edge vehicles, hard to be driven and dangerous. They caused lots of accidents, since having enough money to buy such a car has never meant enough talent or skills to drive it properly.
These old supercars transformed into secure cars, which along with their high performances, brought a plus of security. Not all the supercars are the same. For example, turns out that Porsche Carrera GT is easier to drive than Ferrari Enzo.
Take Bugatti Veyron, for example. This is a car with high performances, high price and power which takes the term “supercar” to a whole new level – “hyper car”. The combination of maneuverability and performance opened the door to the world of hyper cars, motivating car producers to create something as good as Veyron.
And then Ferrari, McLaren and other car brands followed the lead and created perfect cars.These are the nowadays hyper cars. The future will change them too and bring new, better cars into the scene.
Did you know that Bugatti and Beetle belong to the same group?If you don’t believe it, than RC82 Workchop decided to take things to a whole new level and create a funny, high quality “Bugatti meets Beetle” digital rendering.
The main design lines from the iconic Beetle have been transferred onto a Bugatti Veyron body, including the bug eyes, exterior doors and steel wheels.
Who knows, maybe somebody will like the result and invest the necessary money to produce at least one copy of Bugatti Veyron, Beetle edition.
Bugatti decided to make the simple concept of a belt buckle a little more complicated and stick a price tag to it that says 84 000 dollars!
Which is simply too much for a belt buckle, even if it has Bugatti written all over it.What makes this belt so special, according to the producers? It has been personalized by an expensive watch maker – Roland Iten, from Geneva.
That’s it.Bugatti plans on producing 44 belts, 11 of which have already been finished. The details are made out of white gold, like that would matter in case of an accident.
The company also claims that the buckle has a special system consisting of 100 handmade details, allowing it to be fixed better than ever, made of the best materials. Ok, but 84 000 dollars?!
Besides the fact that Veyron is an opulent car by definition, Mansory is pushing the limits.
Mansory is known for its extravagancy, but even that seems to be too much when you look at the new Bugatti Veyron LINEA Vincero D’Oro.
This is just another example that big money doesn’t guarantee good taste. We are sure that there will be lots of rich men struggling to put their hands on this unique Bugatti Veyron, but this is definitely the most unsuccessful Bugatti ever, if we take the 2006 pink one out of the question.
Besides the uninspired chromium theme, the car has a new grille, a modified spoiler and a shortened hood. The golden looking tires have been especially created for this model.
The interior of the car reveals much more gold than its exterior, making the fiasco just more obvious. There are so many lights in the car, starting with the seats and up to door panels that you feel like witnessing a light explosion.
The car runs on quad-turbo propulsion, completing the extravagant theme of this Bugatti Veyron.
This story made the news a few year ago. At the time Andy House, the owner of a Bugatti Veyron said that he crashed into a lake trying to avoid a pelican.
Naturally, the $1 Million Veyron was insured and he filed an insurance claim for $2.2 Million.
Apparently the prosecutors didn’t believe him and after many investigations they proved he was lying and tried to fraud the insurance company. Somehow the prosecutors got their hands on a video that shows how House intentionally drove the car in the lake and later is was clear that he left the engine running to make sure it gets destroyed.
In 2014, House pleaded guilty and was facing 10 years in prison but recently his sentence was cut down to 1 year in prison, 3 years of supervision and a fine of $600,000.
