    Veyron hits 400 km/h

    From "Winding Road":

    Veyron Quiets Critics
    After what seemed like an eternity of development following VW's
    first announcement of a 1000-hp Bugatti supercar in 2002, the car
    has finally reached and exceeded it's promised to speed of 400 km/h
    (248.5 mph). Under the watch of the German Homologation
    Authority and timed by their precise instruments, the Veyron reached
    its max speed multiple times in both directions at VW's Ehra-Lessien
    test track, the same spot where Andy Wallace hit 240.1 mph in the
    McLaren F1 seven years earlier.

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    Just don't make any turns.....or it will hit a wall......

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    But the difference between a McLaren F1 and Veyron is the F1 is the ultimate sport car and the Veyron is a heavy overboosted Volkswagen. Horsepower and TopSpeed is not all.

    A cow will be a cow even with a golden bell in this case with 1000 hp....

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    yeah Dr. Phil and then this happened



    It will be another Nardo project

    lol look at that wing, looks like an aircraft flap.

    Whomever is considering buying one of these bad boys for a mil better be prepared for some service visits. On the other hand, they'll probably all end up being garage queens.

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    You would think at some point they would make cars realistic. A car that weighs 2500lbs or less with adjutable downforce and sub 700 hp would be a hell of a lot more entertaining that a 4WD 1000hp fagron.

    Think it's for braking. Looks like a muscle car amongst the exotics... I kinda like it...

    And a Ferrari is not a Fiat? It even says so on the F1 cars

    Do they even have a production limit?

    A nice car indeed but I fear that VW and especially Piech was a bit to keen when announcing 1001 hp! On the other hand solving the heating issues shouldn't be a big problem anymore.

    yes they're only going to make 50, they have all 50 buyers lined up already, that was one of the conditions before the car was given the go ahead for production. david beckham is somewhere on the list

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    I could imagine that they do a couple more - but I doubt that there are more people willing to buy that car! Let's wait and see, they have to re-finance all the development costs somehow...

    they're going to make a loss on it, apparently when the project when past beyond the point of being feesable they carried on with it anyway knowing it. it's just to prove that they can do it.

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    As exclusive as this car may be, to me it's like a bad software that they have to repatch it and debug it. This project became such a failure that like a new software needs to be re-architected and rewritten .

    I heard the will make total 300 units over six years, so 50 per year.

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    Hey guys,

    for the ones fluent in German there is a little Veyron report on AutoBild, incl. some data and some beautiful pics.

    According to the mag, only 30 to 40 cars are sold so far - should you put 300k Euros on the table and sign the contract, it might be in front of your door in a couple of months as well. So far no customer was allowed to take a testdrive.

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    As a small update, this past weekend in Monterey (Pebble Beach) I saw the Veyron and met the president of Bugatti and had a short conversation with him (5-10 minutes). He answered some interesting questions for me, and later I saw him leaving with a potential customer -- the customer was driving!!!

    Re: Veyron hits 400 km/h

    I really think that this car can hit 400km/h.
    I already drove it to the Limit at the year 2003.
    You could get 310km/h - then the instructor was worried ;D

    here a little picture from me and "my" veyron
