    Tuned Veyron!!

    Hopefully not a repost

    "What do you do when you're not happy with your 1,001bhp, 253mph Bugatti Veyron? Add more oomph.

    A super-rich businessman - thought to be a Russian oligarch - has had his bespoke Bugatti's power boosted to a reported 1,200bhp.

    These high quality pictures appeared on BMW forum E46 fanatics and show the burgundy over cream parked outside a Dubai shopping mall.

    But when a car is this powerful, adding the equivalent of a Volkswagen Golf GTi under the hood won't increase performance that much.

    We reckon the vamped-up Veyron will hit 60mph in about 2.3 seconds and have a top speed of 260mph - compared to 2.5 seconds and 253mph.

    Modified by Spanish coachbuilders Pegaso, the Veyron has a slightly altered interior and bears the registration plate C1.

    Other alleged vehicles in the owner's multi-million pound stable include a 207mph McLaren Mercedes SLR, 214mph Pagani Zonda, 196mph Ferrari F430, 205mph Lamborghini Murcielago and Hummer H2.

    The lucky owner is also the only person to live permanently in the world's only seven-star hotel - Dubai's achingly amazing Burj al Arab where rooms typically cost Pounds2,000 per night."

    I am in a loss for words! I want in stable

    Re: Tuned Veyron!!

    Why on earth someone would want to modify a masterpiece like that I will never understand. Albeit the visual changes are minor, why would you want to change an engine with that much power which has been fine tuned to its purpose and then let someone tangle with it. To me it would seem that this person has too much money and too little taste and reason.

    Re: Tuned Veyron!!

    rumors/gossip/sightings spread so fast on the internet.

    He also owns a
    pagani zonda
    slr
    and bunch of other cars. The license plate is supposed to cost 10,000,000 Dirhams or $2.7milllin

    I think the veyron is a great car and an engineering marvel, but I believe it is far from a masterpiece, too many redesigns and changes were required to achieve the rather unrealistic vision of having so many creature comforts stuffed into a car desiring such performance.

    They had to keep adding power, and then add more support systems to sustain that power, and then add more power to compensate for the additional weight, and so on.

    Can you imagine just how frustrating it is to have so much money that, however much you spend, you just cannot make an impression on the pile of banknotes.

    You've just got to feel sorry for people who find themselves in that position.

    Fortunately, there are lots of other people in this world who unselfishly devote themselves to helping solve such problems.

    I guess having one of a few fastest cars on the planet isnt good enough to someone wanting THE fastest street legal car on the planet.

    Re: Tuned Veyron!!

    Its a normal veyron with just cosmetics to the exterior and the interior which is done by the owner based on special order ....

    Nothing has been changed in the engine...

    thanks

    Re: Tuned Veyron!!

    Sorry to burst is buble but Bugatti has already admitted that the real power output for the Veyron is nearer 1150Hp. That could be just some special conditions since small percentual power variations are normal. Of course a small percentage of 1000hp is always a lot!!

    Re: Tuned Veyron!!

    He has a summer house close to mine in Spain. Cars he has in stable over here. Mercedes S65 red with white leather, New Bentley Azure in baby blue, RR Phantom. All cars have 22 inch rims matching the body color.

    Moreover he is not a russian oligarch but rather invests the cash of state owned companies in real estate

    So the plate is more than the car? WTF???

    Does C1 have a special meaning in Arabic? I fail to see anything special in C1 on a license plate, or anything else for that matter.

    Very amusing nonethless...more power to the owner

    Re: Tuned Veyron!!

    actually ive heard 2 rumors.

    one that the plate cost $2.7 million and the other that it costs $12.1 million.

    Sorry, but I doubt that Bugatti has "admitted that the real power output for the Veyron is nearer 1150 hp" because that would mean that they also admitted that the figures they submitted to obtain Type Approval for the car were incorrect.
    I believe that a tolerance of +/- 5% is permitted on max power figures, whereas 1150 hp would be nearer 15%.
