    Bugatti Veyron...with health warning!

    Also from the Goodwood Festival of Speed



    Re: Bugatti Veyron...with health warning!

    why is it so unaerodynamic looking, it looks like a squashed audi tt.
    I hear its pretty unaerodynamic so i'm not surprised but still

    Re: Bugatti Veyron...with health warning!

    Does look kinda funny

    I don't think a car that can sustain 250+ mph is unaerodynamic?

    Re: Bugatti Veyron...with health warning!

    Actually it's very aerodynamic looking - just the wrong sort of aerodynamics... The type that gives lift, not downforce.

    sooomuch presence...i am happy this car exists

    Actually that is not quite true. I read that the Veyron has SO MUCH downforce that at speeds over 200mph it can drive upside down!!!

    I somewhat doubt that - an F1 or Indycar, yes I can believe.

    But the Veyron? Look at the big spoiler on the back... It needs it because the general shape of the car is all about lift. This is what happens when you design a car in an arse-about manner (shape and style first, then function.) This is why there were so many delays with the car - that and cooling.

    Of course, in order to reach it's top speed that big spoiler needs to retract (less drag) but it results in less downforce too.

    Re: Bugatti Veyron...with health warning!

    I found a bit more info

    How much downforce does the Veyron produce?

    http://www.bugattipage.com/ride.htm

    With spoiler up: "about 330 pounds in front and 440 in the rear at 230 mph."

    For comparison:

    The basic shape is just wrong!

    Re: Bugatti Veyron...with health warning!

    I still wouldn't mind one though

    Re: Bugatti Veyron...with health warning!

    Hey, don't get me wrong, it still goes like hell and looks spectacular. It's an incredible feat of engineering!
