    Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    Finally: it seems that Bugatti will start with first deliveries of the Veyron around September 2005.
    Only 300 cars will be produced, each at around 1 Million Euro before tax. Engine output power is 1001 HP but it is still unclear if Bugatti will allow the Veyron to run at the possible top speed of around 406 kph. Some sources close to Bugatti indicate a speed limit of 370 kph with the possiblity to remove it at own risk and without being street legal anymore.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    i know some veyron customers who are VERY pissed off...

    VW held a 'demonstration' for waiting customers awhile back, to try to quell their eagerness to recieve their long overdue cars.

    evidently the test car in that event spun and almost crashed.

    its not going to be ready for a long time, its all becuase tire technology isnt good enough

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    What about the tyres on the McLaren F1? I've seen a topgear video of it hitting 391Kph and how old is the F1 aswell.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    i would venture that the tires on the Mclaren F1 had to cope with less of a drag coefficient, as well as DRAMATICALLY less weight.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    I think I have a solution

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    the veyron is VW's biggest mistake. they are going to eat it BIG for that one.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    VW engineers need a little help.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    What about the phaeton, I heard the sales on that thing aren't too great?

    Btw does anyone here have any experience with the Toureag v8, or is getting a Cayenne S or Range Rover a better deal

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    the toureg is selling OK, but nothing phenomenal.

    the phaeton is a huge dissapointment (well, what the hell did they expect?)

    i understand the 'reserved wealth' thing, but for like 80k USD, you can buy a merc S500, which is the defacto understated limo...

    its easy for a company like porsche to make a 40k car and sell it like hotcakes,

    when a company that makes (admittedly) low end cars, such as VW, tries to go upscale, it is an (pardon the pun) uphill battle.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    I heard they wanted to make a sort of CL version of the Phaeton but never saw any pics of how it'll look like. Throughout my whole stay in Florida i only saw 1 phaeton w12, other than it's mostly Golfs and Touraegs.

    I read a news sometimes ago saying the incentive of the slow selling Phaeton is $10K.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    They should perhaps concentrate on making the Veyron the most exclussive and technologicaly advanced GT, instead of it being that fast and powerfull. Maybe they aimed too high.
    Why did they not try to make a 2+2 GT instead? More sense in doing that. My opinion only, you all Veyron-soon-to-be-owning-guys.

    Re: Bugatti 16.4 Veyron News

    Yeah, they wanted to create a flagship for the company image Bugatti&VW Group with a few records on its back like most HP and top speed, but instead failed miserably and became a laughing stock, IMO due to the weight of the car. Just this week in Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson took a few jabs at the Veyron again.

    Continetal came out with a 360km/h rated tire, the VMax, which the GT2 based 646HP Techart GT-Street used at Nardo to claim 360km/h and the 730HP 9ff 911 Turbo did 372km/h.
