If you are lucky enough to own a Bugatti hypercar, it is entirely likely that a mere luxury yacht may not be exciting enough. To remedy this, there is a concept in the making that is being dubbed the “Bugatti of the sea”—the Palmer Johnson Bugatti yacht.
The Palmer Johnson Bugatti yacht will offer just a bit of size and, of course, that speed. The price range will be about the same as throwing down for a million-dollar Bugatti Veyron, but this one can swim. For the yacht concept, Bugatti teamed up with Palmer Johnson yacht builder. Let’s take a look at some of the preliminary specs for the project:
The so-called “Fastest car on the planet” is about to break the Internet again. The most drawn-out and not exactly seductive tease for the newbie initially captivated but has shed some zest over time. The ridiculous wait for the Bugatti Veyron successor is about to come to a screeching halt, however, depositing the suspect onto the well-attended concourse of the Geneva Motor Show in France.
The Bugatti Chiron 18/3 concept from 1999 is pictured above. What will the new version look like? Fun fact: This year marks the 86th for the Geneva Motor Show.
Bugatti fans love the all mighty Veyron, but the stuff that rolled out back in the day is just as cool to collect and experience—like the 1993 Bugatti 110 GT hitting the auction block at RM Sotheby’s soon! The flashy time capsule will be at the RM Sotheby’s auction January 28th-29th, 2016 and is anticipated to fetch between $600-$800k. Collectable car pricing varies according to many factors, and it appears that this 1993 Bugatti is on the up right now.

By now, everyone in the automotive world and all others know about the VW crisis dealing with the emissions scandal. While accusations and opinions will continue to fly for a while, an important issue will be the future of Bugatti. How will the Volkswagen emissions crisis affect the future of the beloved Bugatti brand?
The Bugatti brand actually costs money to stay alive, meaning that VW loses money on each unit sold. Even though the basic cost of a Bugatti Veyron is around a million and up, it has been revealed that VW loses around $3 million for each Veyron sold. Many find these figures difficult to grasp and assume that selling million-dollar-plus hypercars can only lead to profit. The reality is that development and materials often outweigh profits by a large margin, making the boutique brand reliant upon the other VW brands for its financial survival.
When it comes to speed and titles, few match the long-standing Bugatti Veyron. That said, some find the startup and throttle sound to be a bit too soft and gentle for such an epic monster. Queue the Bugatti Vision GT concept, it seems that the engineers took note (pun intended) of the situation when developing this nice lady and gave her a much throatier voice. Take a listen in the clip below!
This video was captured at the Frankfurt Motor Show where the Bugatti Vision GT concept was shown for the first time. Here you can see her showing off her looks and special sounds to the obviously captivated crowds:
The video below shows Christian Von Koenigsegg, founder of Koenigsegg, piloting competitor Bugatti’s Veyron supercar. While the clip calls it a rolling start race, it just appears to be a bit of fun. For one thing, there is a passenger action and that is added weight, indicating it is not a serious go-round but likely rather simply for jollies.
The cars are a Koenigsegg CCXR and a Bugatti Veyron. The clip was filmed at an airstrip located in Angelholm, Sweden, where Koenigsegg is based and maintains operations. It is not uncommon for competitors to drive each other’s machines, because what better way to know exactly what you are pitted against than to grip the wheel and give it a go? Watch Koenigsegg’s head meet gravity when he accelerates the Bugatti Veyron—if Bugatti fails to utilize this treasure in some mad marketing, well…perhaps they are mad!
On August 19th, 2015, the popular Bugatti plane took its first flight. Dubbed the Bugatti 100P Project, it is zeroed in on bringing to life an old project started but never finished by Ettore Bugatti back in the day. The name of the aircraft is Reve Bleu, and she became airborne at 104 miles per hour and achieved a top out of 127 miles per hour.
The well-followed Bugatti 100P Project is about a plane. That plane was the dream of founder Ettore Bugatti that was placed on hold way back in the 1930s. Now with a little help, that same plane is set to take off…but not without a few nosedives during testing!
Now that the last Bugatti Veyron is finished and all of the seriously hyped and rehyped excitement has been reduced to a calm crescendo of crickets, what will the brand do? Bugatti is a badge that radiates adrenaline, after all, so it cannot be expected to remain silent for too long. The Bugatti Veyron successor rumors have certainly been going on long enough in an industry with the attention span stuck on zero miles per hour.
Previous rumors have gone back and forth tennis court style about whether the Bugatti Veyron successor will be faster or better in any measure. Now with the Frankfurt Motor Show looming, the rumors have reignited at full energy, claiming bravely that the successor shall be even more of a speed demon and going further to say that there will never be a Bugatti SUV. Because there are no legitimate announcements by Bugatti itself at this juncture, we must assume that they are truly indulging in the joy of the long tease. We must also assume that they have something for us—and hope against hope that it is enough to fill that immeasurable void.
