Bugatti Veyron Successor To Clear 60 MPH In Under 2 Seconds

Bugatti Veyron successor

Following the lengthy farewell ceremonies for the Bugatti Veyron, attention has turned to the successor. Word is circulating that the new champion could destroy the 0-60 mile per hour sprint in less than 2 seconds. Will the Bugatti Veyron successor be faster than her siblings?

Bugatti had stated previously that the successor would not be a speed demon, nor a threat to the original. It seems that the company may have changed their tune, and no one is likely to be upset about that. Perhaps when Hennessey swooped in with their Venom to steal the fastest production car title, it left a bit of a dent in Bugatti’s ego. Whatever the reason, it would certainly be welcomed for the Veyron successor to provide some shock and awe. read more

‘Furious 7’ Lykan Hypersport Skyscraper Action Could Work Because Science

Fans of the Fast and Furious franchise were treated to quite a few seemingly unbelievable stunts in ‘Furious 7’, including the Lykan Hypersport jumping from skyscrapers and landing in…other skyscrapers! But could the $3.4 million dollar hypercar actually pull that stunt off in real life? Science says perhaps!
The clip above details the Lykan Hypersport and offers a glimpse of the action:

Physics professor Lee Loveridge of Pierce College has mentioned that the death-defying skyscraper stunt in the film could possibly be the most plausible in terms of what is actually possible. By analyzing the actual measurements of the Etihad Towers, the space between them and then factoring in the power and momentum calculations for the car, it turns out that Dom and Brian could have actually managed the unbelievable stunt in reality. read more

LaFerrari Is Happy When it Rains

Above is awesome footage of the powerful LaFerrari hyperbeast taking on the track in the rain. The car seems to manage just fine, regardless of weather conditions. That said–it might not be the greatest of inspirations to drive her on ice or snow! read more

Unlikely Street Racing Video: Tesla Vs. Lamborghini

Admit it: If you owned a supercar like a Lamborghini Murcielago you would be tempted to street race. Street racing is very dangerous and illegal—but it still happens and we can’t help but inhale the footage. That said, check out this duel on the streets between the Lamborghini Murcielago and a Tesla Model S P85D that is circulating on YouTube!

The video is not exactly professional quality or choreographed, but it does provide an exciting glimpse of the beasts in their natural element. It is always exciting to see an exotic sports car out on the streets, even if you drive one everyday. That exhilaration is increased exponentially when there are two and they then begin to challenge one another. This is not a recommended or legal activity, of course, and we certainly do not encourage such behavior. The driver creating the video did not seem to have a chance at keeping up with the spectacle, and while it is not entirely clear what they are driving, it sounds as if every bolt is coming loose in the attempt! read more

How It Is Made: The Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron

Now that the production run of 450 Bugatti Veyron supercars has come to a halt with the very last unit sold, let us take a look at how the car is made. With a price range starting at a cool million USD–some considerable steps are taken to ensure the perfect beast. How the 1,001 horsepower, 263+ mile per hour Bugatti Veyron monster is made:

  • The Veyron has a production process that is unique to the model, with many steps designed and engineered specifically for a prescribed and unprecedented result.
  • While some parts are made in Germany and elsewhere, the car is built in Volkswagen’s Salzgitter plant. It is among the largest factories on the planet, but the Veyron is handcrafted in but a small space.
  • The magic begins with the special 16-cylinder engine, which is a pair of V8 engines mated together.
  • Each titanium, aluminum and aerospace-grade stainless steel component is hand delivered in custom sealed containers to prevent damage.
  • The carbon fiber cockpit surrounds passengers for strong protection—which is important when you consider that just 14 bolts hold the front and rear of the hypercar together. Each bolt is hand crafted and takes up to 5 weeks to complete. With any hope, even Chuck Norris could not break one.
  • With so much screaming power, it takes a full 10 radiators to keep the Veyron cool. Each unit is meticulously Dyno tested and driven 300 miles to ensure success and safety before meeting their owners.
  • But how to make all that speed stop? The Veyron boasts handmade carbon ceramic brakes capable of withstanding up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. The brakes alone are no match for the car, however, so the rear wing activates to slow the car.

Time:

  • It takes a full week and a full force to make just one Bugatti Veyron supercar engine.
  • Aside from the many man-hours spent elsewhere on the assembly front, it takes 3 days to make the 250-part fuel tank.
  • Because no existing tires were a match for this monster–Michelin created some. They made a set for the road and one for the track, but that was not going to cut it for VW, who asked for a set capable of performing on both.
  • While a regular old tire can be made in a minute, it takes about an hour to make a Veyron tire…and far less to burn one up! Each set of wheels costs around $18k.
  • Overall: The Bugatti Veyron gets an impressive 3 miles per gallon and runs completely out of gas in 12 minutes. Hey, she is a thirsty lady.

Let’s wrap this up with some fun facts: Every Veyron is then driven 300 miles to ensure that the work was done properly.
