Bugatti Veyron Successor

We know that when Bugatti does something, the do it right. And that is exactly the case when it comes to the much anticipated successor to the  enigmatic Veyron.

There is no official confirmed date yet for the (yet to be named) Veyron successor, but reports are stating that we can expect to witness the magic in 2016. The automaker has not released a lot of information about the car, but slowly there are trickling more more and more details – and this latest bout of details has got us properly frothing.

According to a report by Autocar, the Veyron’s successor will house the same – albeit updated – engine as the Veyron. and to refresh your memory, that is a 8.0 liter, W16 engine. Some sources also claim that the Veyron’s successor will incorpated hybrid technology, something the existing Veyron lacks, of course.  (more…)

Sun Valley Road Rally

It might not be the fastest car in the world anymore, after the Hennessey trumped it from the number one spot, but let’s be honest; it is still super exciting to see a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport race down a straight stretch of road, even if it now holds second place.

At the recent Sun Valley Road Rally in Ketchum, Idaho, one of Bugatti’s rarest beauties got to show off it’s skills and power and in the process blow the socks off of everyone attending the event as well as ourselves, because luckily, someone realized that this is moment not to be missed and pulled out the video camera.

The Sun Valley Road Rally effectively turns a stretch of Highway 75, surrounded by trees and beautiful, picturesque mountains, into a high-speed runway where super cars get to show off just h0w ‘super’ they are.

During the event, the road is not open to the public for use (obviously, they risk a collision with a super fast super car) but the event is open to the public to come and watch, with all proceeds being donated to charity. (more…)

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:
