Ah, the life of a wealthy gentleman or lady is the life that we would all like to have. Buying what you want, when you want it and having the ability to take delivery of incredible hypercars when you want. Take for instance this Bugatti Chiron clad in beautiful black and yellow paint and leather. This is the very first Bugatti Chiron delivered to a customer the US. The delivery was made at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
Nearly a hundred Bugatti Veyron cars are being recalled due to issues with the fuel gauge and battery cable corrosion, according to documents that have been posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A total of 72 cars made between 2006 and 2010 will be recalled over the fuel gauge issue, while only 13 cars will be recalled over potential issues with the battery cable corroding.
With a benchmark like the record-breaking Veyron, Bugatti had to create something special in the all-new Chiron. It succeeded. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show today, the hotly-anticipated supercar doesn't just look like a spaceship brought to Earth, it promises to drive like something trying to achieve escape velocity.
The Veyron is dead: all hail the Bugatti Chiron, 1,500 horsepower of insane luxury coupe. Making its long-awaited debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, the Chiron takes the Veyron equation of a huge engine, ridiculous top speed, and opulent accommodation and cranks it up even higher, with a newly-developed W16 engine packing 1,180 lb-ft of torque.
What do you do when a Bugatti car isn't sufficiently rare and expensive to single you out? You buy a Bugatti boat instead. The supercar manufacturer has taken just enough time out from working on the upcoming Chiron to team with motor yacht builder Palmer Johnson, and the result is the Niniette series, a line of open carbon-fiber sport yachts.
We already know a lot about the Bugatti Chiron, even though Bugatti has only just now officially confirmed the name of the car. Along with the confirmation that the car will be called the Chiron, Bugatti has also confirmed that the world premiere for the car will happen at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show kicking off in March.
So far Bugatti has played things pretty close to the vest when it comes to specifications for their next-generation hypercar. What we know so far is that the car will be called the Chiron and it will be faster and more powerful than ever before. Recently a trio of prototypes of the car was spied in Northern Italy in matte black and the shape looks much like the rendering you see here.
If the devil is in the details, then Bugatti's Vision Gran Turismo car is truly demonic. The eye-catching concept may have been built to mark its digital counterpart's arrival in the PlayStation game, but that didn't stop Bugatti's designers from getting serious about not only what the outlandish car looks like but how it would perform on the track - even in the case of an emergency.
Scooped, scalloped, creased, cut-up, and generally looking like it wants to chop you into little pieces, Bugatti's Vision Gran Turismo is enough to give you palpitations. While the astonishing hyper-car is intended for gamers to get behind the wheel in the PlayStation title of the same name, that didn't stop Bugatti's engineers from putting together a full-sized, real-life version to bring along to Frankfurt this week.
The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo may be a stunning virtual racing concept designed for PlayStation’s Gran Turismo, but it makes its very real in-the-carbon-fiber-flesh debut this week at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. Our images show Bugatti’s stunner racing at Le Mans in Gran Turismo, but the ultra-exclusive French performance and luxury automaker tells us there’s a clear resemblance to Bugatti’s next hyper-car, the follow up to the Bugatti Veyron 16.4.
Bugatti is one of the many automakers who whipped up awesome digital concept cars that people can drive in the Gran Turismo video game. A few of those virtual cars were made into real world show cars. Bugatti has announced that it will be making a full-scale show car of the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo virtual car and that show car will debut at the Frankfurt motor show.
