The model was launched, let's say “not very”. At the 1999 Tokyo Motor Show, Bugatti brags about his new concept. Critics smash it to smithereens. Like, beautiful and glossy like a luxury doll, the cabin is solid "comfort" (which is unacceptable for a sports car), and the engine is huge in size and incredibly weak in terms of performance.
Incited by failure, the company at the Geneva Salon in 2001 exhibits the Bugatti EB 16/4 Veyron. The model was named in honor of the engineer, test pilot and racer Pierre Veyron, who came first to the finish line in Le Mans races in 1939 on a Bugatti racing car.
The car was completely redesigned, 90% of all components were designed specifically for this car from scratch. The speed limit of the sports car was 407 km / h.
It was planned to begin serial production in 2003, but because of the succession of castling figures at the wheel of a Volkswagen, the first cars moved off the assembly line only in 2005.
Briefly about the characteristics
Total already collected about 300 pieces of sports cars. The average cost is under two euro euro. Motor power about 1001 horsepower. Having swept 100 km through the city, the car eats 40.5 liters of fuel. But if you accelerate to full capacity, then the tank "to the eyeballs" will last for 12 minutes. Allocated heat at maximum speed from the motor would be enough to heat 10 houses in the winter. Switching time between transfers of 0.2 seconds. When the machine jumps 220 km per hour, the hydraulics presses it to the road, leaving a gap between the track and the bottom of less than 9 cm. At the same time, the wing starts, it rises from the back of the body.
Bugatti Veyron is equipped with a unique braking system - carbon-blown ceramic discs and eight-piston calipers. When moving over 200 km when braking, the fender enters the process. Pressing the brake pedal and stopping 10 seconds. Automatics will drive the car in a straight line, even if the driver has lost his nerves and he will release the “wheel”.
The entire Bugatti Veyron consists of 3 separate modules that are interconnected by 14 titanium bolts. And in order to get to the engine, it will be necessary to crush the entire “tail end” of the supercar. By the way, the supercar is equipped with a Bugatti W16 Quad Turbo engine: 8 liters and 16 cylinders in general, it is similar to the V8 only multiplied by 2. Well, in order to get to the cherished 407 km mark, the driver must activate the speed mode using a key, something like “ red button.
