Bugatti Veyron 16.4

I just made an in-depth comment in the "Bugatti, not a driver's car..." Thread, but realize that it would be far more efficient to start a new thread. There is a lot of information and much to discuss about the new Veyron, so here it is.

I will post a few pics shortly that I have. I have a few good shots of the two-tone Blue Veyron that I saw at the Geneve Auto Show in March in Switzerland. Of course, the new Red and Black car has hit all the magazines as well.

There are threads titled 16/4 Veyron here, but I'm always up to discuss it (especially with someone who will actually deal with it!)

It is a V16 engine, and here it is:

Veyron Thread

Chris,

I meant to start a new thread back at the first level under Bugatti, but I obviously got something wrong. I may have to start another thread there as "Nonspecific" under Bugatti just doesn't seem to capture the uniqueness of exotic cars. Seems kinda Yawny..

Soon enough I suppose. Thanks for putting up the picture of the engine. You are right on top of things.

Ya, "nonspecific" seems kinda dowdy, especially when talking about the best cars in the world!

Survey

This question may have already been asked, but what is the general opinion of the two tone paint scheme on the Veyrons?

My opinion is that it works well with this car. As far as production, I think it will fly very well. I am not quite sure of the price just yet. It has varied widely. In general, I think the car will survive as a production car.

Here are a few images of the known cars that currently exist or that have had various paint schemes throughout their show life.

Those paint schemes are to connect the "new" Bugatti to classic "Bugs" of the past. They remind me of the Type 57s, mostly...which I'm sure was the idea.

Bugatti History

Hudson, as is the intent by Bugatti, to give respect and lineage to their past, the paint scheme are a great tribute to the older ledgends. It is quite a departure from a normal exotic car paint scheme, but it suits the car very well. There are other combinations that I would like to see on the car, but those I have seen (both in person and in pictures) is very impressive.

I was able to sit in the Blue/Dark Blue car in Geneva while it was on the turntable stand. To have the car with its alternative paint and the interior like I have never seen in any other car was quite an experience. I was impressed enough with the car to pursue further discussions with the Bugatti rep in regards to bringing the car in some way to the US. At this point, it looks as though that will become a reality.

I am not sure that any of the existing or concept exotic cars on the market (or soon to be) today could get away with a paint scheme like this. Of course, the Lamborghini Diablo looks good in nearly any color and I have seen nearly every color one could imagine on that car. I have seen several ranging colors on the McLaren with none looking anything less than perfect (I would probably not order a green metallic McLaren, but it still looks good). The Ferraris are pretty much limited on color, but the newer 360 has broken some new color molds. Some work for the car, some do not (I can't say that white will ever thrill me, but someone may like it). The F50 was limited to Red, Yellow, Silver, and Black. However, I have seen a few odd colored F50s, light metallic blue, and a metallic green car. There are rumors of other colors as well. My opinion-the 4 primary colors are it. I didn't care for the others.

If Bugatti can make the car look as appealling as it does now in the two tone combination, I think it will stand out in the future as a great car. That cannot be said of most exotic cars.

That car is insane. Awesome.

But IMHO I think it needs a lil something on the back like a spoiler or something.

I believe it has a deployable rear spoiler, which goes up at a certain speed. However, the mark of true aerodynamics is not needing a spoiler for downforce.
