Dubai police chase criminals in a Bugatti Veyron

It’s no secret that people in Dubai really love supercars. Rich Sheik’s and powerful businessmen drive the city flat with their million dollar cars.

But it’s not only the rich people that like they’re cars fast and expensive; now the police force are also joining in on the game with the addition of their latest ‘cop car’, a Bugatti Veyron.

It seems almost insulting to call a Veyron a ‘cop car’, however, that is exactly what it is. The $1,6 million car is the perfect ride to catch criminals in a high-speed chase. I mean, it’s a Veyron… I seriously doubt that a criminal will be able to out run a car like that – unless the criminal himself is a fan of Bugatti!

The Veyron is simply an addition to the Dubai police force’s already impressive fleet of super cars. Other, ‘super cop cars’ include a Lamborghini Aventador, an Aston Martin One-77, a Mercedes SLS AMG, a Bentley Continental GT and a Ferrari FF – specifically for the female cops.

The Veyron will be fulfilling its duties as a patrol car in popular tourist spots. However, we’re pretty sure they got a Veyron to chase criminals, and not just for casual patrolling rides.

The Dubai Police also introduced their latest addition in a (epic) video. Check it out below:

SSC Ultimate Aero To Launch On August 8; Will It Defeat The Bugatti Veyron?

Published by on Jul 27th, 2010, No Comments

The second generation Aero, called the Ultimate Aero, from Shelby Sports Cars will be unveiled by the company on August 8th at the Boeing Flight Museum in Seattle. The Ultimate Aero is SSC’s attempt to regain its title of “fastest road car in the world” from current title holder Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

The Bugatti Veyron had achieved its title after breaking the 255.83 mph record set by the previous model of the Aero called the Ultimate Aero TT. The new Ultimate Aero will require more than the 1,183 hp present in the Aero TT to become faster than the Veyron Super Sport, which has a 1,200 hp-engine and has set a record top speed of 268 mph.

The designer of the new Ultimate Aero, Jason Castriota, will also have to make sure that the design does not cause aerodynamic drag, besides ensuring better power features for the car.

So does the Veyron Super Sport have a reason to be scared? The answer will be revealed on August 8.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Smashes Speed Record

Published by on Jul 5th, 2010, No Comments

Who is the fastest on the tarmac? If you thought it was the Shelby SuperCars’ Aero SSC TT that fits the bill as the fastest production car in the world, think again!

Bugatti has climbed on to the top position, post a June 26 drive when test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel drove an orange-and-black Veyron 16.4 Super Sport to an average top speed of 268 mph (431 kph).

The event that got underway at the VW Group’s test facility at Ehra-Leissien saw the Veyron Super Sport tumble all high-speed records. The question as to who is the fastest has been remaining unanswered for quite a while now.

The Veyron Super Sport is a much higher version that the usual Veyron we usually get to see. The company has thrown in additional power and has increased it to 1,200 hp, while the quad turbo W16 would return torque at 1,106 pound-feet.

The car has ensured this via its enlarged turbochargers and intercoolers. The company has also incorporated in the Veyron Super Sport a redone suspension that is capable of managing aero downforce at speeds about 260 mph.

McLaren Boss Ron Dennis Dubs Bugatti Veyron as a ‘Piece of Junk’

Bugatti Veyron 2

It may be the most expensive production car in the world but for McLaren F1 Executive Chairman, Ron Dennis, the Bugatti Veyron is “a complete piece of junk.” There’s nothing about the Veyron to make Ron feel good and he says that the four-wheeler is pig ugly and cannot handle very well. He mentioned that the 16-cylinder engine is only taken out by cutting the car and this huge engine is one reason the car doesn’t do well around corners. Dennis recollected how the Bugatti was not able to defeat the McLaren F1 on Top Gear, though the crew was supposed to film exactly the opposite. McLaren is busy producing the MP4-12C lightweight supercar which renders 600bhp courtesy of its 3.8L twin-turbo engine but it is supposedly not the flagship variant.
