Bugatti offers 15-year warranty as part of its Veyron Loyalty Maintenance Program

There’s great news for Bugatti Veyron owners as the automaker recently introduced the Loyalty Maintenance Program to help customers maintain the condition of their cars and to allow them to keep their vehicles in mint condition.

The Loyalty Maintenance Program is actually part of the company’s Extended Warranty and Extended Warranty Plus programs, which can last for as long as 15 years. Owning a Bugatti Veyron can be very expensive; the maintenance costs alone are already high. The brand hopes that this program will help reduce operating costs for owners.

Franco Utzeri, head of Bugatti Certified and Financial Services, says that the Bugatti Customer Service is definitely more than just a seal of approval, making a difference for Veyron owners. It includes warranty, individual support, and a combination of a confirmed vehicle history. The automaker’s goal is also to give their customers a unique experience and 360 degree ownership that no other automaker currently offers.

Extremely rare Bugatti Veyron Mansory Linea Vincero is for sale

How much are you willing to pay for the one-off super exclusive Bugatti Veyron Mansory Linea Vincero? As it is one of the most expensive cars out there, being seen driving it will make everyone sit up and take notice.

We are aware that whoever can afford a brand new Bugatti Chiron has an extra $2.9 million sitting in their bank, and definitely a lot more to keep it maintained every year or so. If you have been eyeing one but don’t want to spend that much, you can always get a second hand Bugatti. However, not all second hand units are cheaper than a brand new one. In this case, there is a 2008 Mansory Linea Vincero that is currently being sold through Dupont Registry. It is as luxurious as it sounds, plus it is a one-of-one model so don’t expect it to cost less than a brand new Chiron.

This beauty is just one of three Mansory Bugattis you will find in the world, and it is the only example ever built. What makes it more unique is the fact that it had been customized by the infamous German tuning shop, and has a full carbon body exterior. The Veyron has also been given a facelift, now with a “V” built into the front bumper, and LED daytime running lights that complement the new front fenders and front apron. To complete the look, gold wheels and gold side mirrors were added for a more luxurious feel.

A Cougar-based Bugatti Veyron imitation could be yours for $75,000

Is there anyone out here who wishes to have a Bugatti Veyron replica instead of the real thing? Just in case, there is a 2002 Ford Cougar-turned-Veyron from eBay with a “buy it now” price of 75,000 USD. If you think the seller is asking far too much, don’t judge him very quickly. To justify the amount, the owner has specified that it actually cost him $98,000 to turn it into a Bugatti Veyron. Well, kind of.

Nevertheless, the asking price is quite a steal for a “Bugatti” but it would be really way over the top for a Cougar. For those who might be interested, the car up on sale is made out of a 2002 Ford Mercury Cougar with 193,120 km accumulated mileage.

Call it “Fugatti Ceyron”, “Cugatti Feyron” or whatever names you like, but it features virtually similar characteristics as that of the original. At least in terms of body works and two-tone body paint distinctive in all its designs. Of course a true Bugatti enthusiast would certainly know the difference between a knockoff and a real Veyron.

The Bugatti Veyron surely comes with a lot of surprising twists even after more than ten years have passed. Here in the picture, we have a fusion of the exotic EB110 and the current Veyron model.

Did you notice the new headlamps on the French hyper car? That’s from the old-school Bugatti model. How about that smaller grille at the front, fixed rear wing, wing mirror design and sharper contours along the body?

For the longest time, the Bugatti Veyron’s 1,200 hp and 1,100 lb-ft of torque had been enough to outrun any high performance car on the track. But for Mate Rimac, founder of Rimac Automobili, the Concept One’s 1,088 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque may be the Veyron’s greatest challenger.

So last year, Rimac rose to the challenge and prepared to prove wrong his friend, William Alexander Sidney Herbert, also known as the 18th Earl of Pembroke. The Lord, who is also the founder of Wilton Classic and Supercar owns a ten-year-old Bugatti monster.

The pair went for a cruise in Croatia’s picturesque coastal roads with Sir William Herbert’s Bugatti Veyron in tow. While in there, Miro Zrncevic, Rimac’s official test driver went behind the wheel of the Concept One while the English heir drove his own supercar. The two hit the track in no time and even had the “drag race” recorded.

The last Bugatti Veyron Super Sport will be auctioned next month with an estimated starting price of £2 million. Although RM Sotheby hasn’t given the auction price as of now, a Super Sport would’ve cost at least £1.2 million in 2013. A brand new Veyron would’ve cost over 1.7 million today.

Since there were only 300 coupes made under Bugatti’s “Super Sport 300”, each model is considered a rare find. The last one, which will be sold at the auction would’ve had the number “300” stamped on its chassis. The Super Sport being sold is still under the possession of its first owner. There were a total of 8 US-specified models sold when it was initially released. The last Bugatti Veyron Super Sport was also showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show together with the first ever Bugatti Veyron.

Ever since the owner bought it, the Super Sport has run about less than 400 miles. Out of this, around 269 miles were accumulated during test runs before delivery. The original owner has also brought it to Beverly Hills and Miami for regular maintenance.

To cap off this year’s UEFA European Championship commonly known to us as the Euro 2016, Portugal came from behind the French squad and snagged the title for this prestigious soccer event. Portugal’s national team, led by renowned professional footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, goes home to a 1-0 victory against France in a match that kept people (especially the Portuguese fans) on their toes. Ronaldo had to tearfully hit the bench on an accidental collision with Dimitri Payet on the first half of the game but the Portuguese football club still managed to secure their victory.

Most people would probably treat themselves on a luxury cruise or go on a lavish vacation somewhere in the Maldives or on a Safari adventure but Cristiano Ronaldo is no ordinary human being. While we hope to go somewhere relaxing to reward ourselves for all our hardwork, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to celebrate Portugal’s win at the Euros by buying himself a new car. Not just any car but a Bugatti Veyron.

The Portugal football club captain and Real Madrid striker is known to own a collection of luxury vehicles including a black Porsche 911, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 599 GTO, two Bentley Continental GT’s, a Cayenne Turbo and a BMW M6. Ronaldo posted a photo of his new acquisition on Instagram with a caption “The animal arrive”. Sure enough, his Bugatti Veyron is an exceptional car as it is a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse – one of approximately 450 units produced.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the word “uber” is used to denote a particular kind of person who is a “great or extreme example”. It can also be used to describe things that are a “superlative example” of its class. The term is basically a connotation of supremacy or excessiveness of something.

In today’s innovative world, we often connect the term “uber” to a special mode of transportation – instead of booking a taxi, people are able to choose the kind of vehicle ranging from the most common sedans to the most luxurious cars that can be found in the planet. Founded around 7 years ago, Uber Technologies Inc. has been serving its customers who depend on vehicles for hire with utmost care and giving them the same comfort as if owning their own vehicles.

Actually, almost anyone can become an Uber driver as long as you have a driver’s license, have a car, registered with the company and of course, is sane enough so you do not put yourself and your passenger in harm’s way. Now, it doesn’t matter what kind of car you’re driving but it also wouldn’t hurt to add a little effort for extra comfort and luxury to earn high ratings.

Automotive engineers have studied and have undergone rigorous training to be able to create the perfect motor vehicle - and this includes making the most precise mechanical and natural systems. Knowing that people do make mistakes, it is the automotive engineer's task to think ahead for possible problems that may arise in the future.

They have to put themselves in someone else's shoes, someone who doesn't speak automotive jargon, and be able to make solutions that are as easy as one, two, three. Being an automotive engineer is a tough job and there will always be some glitch in the system where things just don't go the way it's supposed to.

Even those who have built the most technologically advanced cars have to go through trial and error to spot problems. Lucky for those whose technical problems have arisen prior to distribution but there are just unlucky few that have had to be recalled. One of those unlucky few is the Bugatti Veyron.

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale arrived at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, which means that the Veyron era came to an end. Bugatti said that all 450 Veyrons have been sold, 300 coupes and 150 open-top sports cars. Regarding the last Veyron, the company did everything to fulfill customer’s wishes, which is from Middle East of course.

Just like the other vehicles, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale” is powered by the 8.0-liter W16 engine that produces 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of torque. According to Bugatti, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes only 2.6 seconds, while top speed is 410 km/h or 254 mph. When it comes to design, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse “La Finale” is based on chassis number 1 which was designed 10 years ago in the traditional two-tone colour scheme.

As you can see from the photos, the front wing panels, doors and the areas between the doors and the side air intakes known as “medallions” in French, are made from black exposed carbon fiber. Meanwhile, the other parts of the outer shell are made from red exposed carbon fiber and it is the first time this colour has been used on a vehicle.

The Bugatti Veyron was introduced back in 2005 and everyone was amazed by its 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine that produced a whooping 1,001 and 1,250 Nm of torque. Due to the impressive amount of power, the Veyron was able to achieve a top speed of 408.47 km/h (253.81 mpg) during test sessions of the Ehra-Lessien test track on 19 April 2005.

Later in 2010, Bugatti introduced the Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, a model that used the same W16 engine boosted to 1,200 hp and 1,500 Nm of torque. The Super Sport achieved a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph), making it the fastest production car on the market.

Still, the Super Sport has a top speed electronically limited at 415 km/h (258 mph) in order to protect its tyres. As you may know already, Bugatti said that it will produce only 450 units and it appears that its target will be achieved this year when the remaining 8 units will be sold.

Although it is sold for a staggering price of over $1 million and you need to be a wealthy person to afford one, this Bugatti Veyron needs to appear on a candid camera prank. Why? Because the vehicle just stopped in traffic in Beirut, Lebanon, after it ran out of fuel. That’s right folks, the $1 million supercar had no fuel in a country where oil refining is one of the main industries.

What’s even funnier is that the driver had to ask for help from the other drivers found in traffic. The good news is that the driver was helped by others and managed to get the hell out of there. We suspect that he pushed the pedal to the metal in order to disappear and hoped that nobody photographed this situations.

Unfortunately he wasn’t lucky as somebody snapped the supercar while being refueled by some people.

Bugatti’s Veyron 16.4 will get a successor next year and the company officially confirmed the upcoming vehicle, but there are no details regarding the name of the new hypercar. Caranddriver seems to know more and shared with us that the new Veyron successor will be called Chiron, just like the concept car unveiled back in 1999 and created by Italdesign Giugiaro.

The concept car took its name from Luis Alexandre Chiron, a Grand Prix driver who won most of its races while driving Bugatti cars. Bugatti remembered him with the special 18/3 Chiron Concept but it appears that the French carmaker now owned by Volkswagen Group will take things even further, if Caranddriver is right about it.

The 18/3 Chiron was a mid-engine design powered by the same W18 engine found on the EB 118 and EB 218 concept cars that was designed by Volkswagen and developed 555 hp (408 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque.

Andy House is a guy who loves exotic cars and back in 2009 he bought a Bugatti Veyron for $1 million and had it insured for a staggering $2.2 million. However, on November 11 of that year, he decided that he wants the money from the insurance company and decided to drive the Veyron into Gulf Bay. You can also see the videos to better understand the case.

The story was simple as he just needed to leave the motor running when the vehicle was in the water, which resulted into a total loss of the hypercar.

Regarding the insurance company, Andy House wanted to tell them that some pelicans were the cause of the accident but unfortunately, someone filmed the scene and the video was uploaded on the Internet.

For every Bugatti Veryon that’s sold, Volkswagen loses US$6.27 million, according to an analysis by Berstein Research. Since the supercar was introduced in 2005, the Volkswagen Group knew that it will be sold. However, they proceeded to launch the car as it is a technical showcase. But it’s only now that we realize just how much of a loss the group incurred.

The figure that Berstein Research quoted is very high and is hard to believe. It makes us think that the Veyron must be so significant that the group still sells it despite the huge losses. Volkswagen has made other sacrifices though. For example, the Phaeton (which has been on sale since 2001) represents a loss of US$38,252 on every unit.

In addition, every purchase of the Renault Vel Satis resulted to US$25,459 loss. Other losses include US$20,927 for the Peugeot 1007, US$10,247 for the Audi A2, US$6,376 for the Jaguar X-Type, US$6,080 for the Smart ForTwo, US$4,826 for the Renault Laguna, US$3,712 for the Fiat Stilo, and US$1,962 for the first-gen Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

The Bugatti Super Veyron was just a dream and will remain one as company president Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber denies such a car. For those who don’t know, the Super Veyon was rumored to deliver 1,600 hp and capable of a 0-60 sprint in 1.8 seconds. For those who waited the new car, they can still order the Veyron as Bugatti will produce 450 units and currently the French manufacturer delivered 390 vehicles.

Each powered by the 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbocharged engine delivering 1,001 hp. Still, Bugatti also offers the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, powered by the same engine but developing 1138 hp, enough to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 153 mph or 409 km/h.

Last weekend, Bugatti unveiled a new limited edition at Pebble Beach, the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Jean Pierre Wimille, the first of its five Legend cars. Still, Bugatti President Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber said to Autoblog that the company is busy working on something new, a replacement of the Veyron. This means that we expect to see a mind-blowing hypercar.

The Guinness Records organization released an official statement to say that after a comprehensive review with several external experts, it is confirming that the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport holds the record of ‘fastest production car’ in the world. There was a recent controversy on whether this car qualified under the Guinness World Records’ rules.

Its claim was being disputed since the model that was shipped to buyers had a speed limiter to keep it at only 258 mph while the car that set the record had this limiter removed. Some had reasoned out that the factors considered for a “production” vehicle are its number of units sold and produced.

A strong contender for the title was the 1244 hp Hennessey Venom GT, which was tested at a venue different from the Bugatti, which was tested in Germany on VW’s private high-speed track.

At 254.04mph, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has earned the title of the fastest open-top car in the world. The record was set by Chinese racing driver Anthony Liu at the Volkswagen Group’s Ehra-Lessien proving grounds. Available for sale since 2012, the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse has led to a special World Record Car (WRC) Edition, which will be restricted to just eight units.

The official unveiling for this 1.99 million euros (plus tax) model is set to be at the upcoming Shanghai motor show next week. Except for a black and orange paint scheme, the WRC is actually just a standard Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. It is powered by an 8.0-litre W16 engine with an output of 1184bhp and torque of 1106lb ft.

Initially, Bugatti wanted the Vitesse to have a top speed of 233mph with the roof off. But then, the automaker thought that it could reach 249mph. During practice runs, the vehicle was able to reach 249mph but it went even faster during the official timed run. TUV, the German organization for Technical Inspection and Certification, was there to oversee the establishment of the record.

Guinness World Records has stripped the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport of the title of fastest production car in the world after finding out that this car violated the rules since it was modified. The record was set three years ago in July 2010 with a speed of 267.8mph. The record was reinvestigated after Guinness received an enquiry by Driving.co.uk, which said that the Veyron that attempted the record can’t be considered a production car since it had its speed restrictor deactivated.

Each one of the 30 cars sold to the public had a speed restrictor. Guinness World Records released a statement last Friday, to confirm that in setting the record of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport as the fastest production car in 2010, there was an oversight in its adjudication.

PR Director Jaime Strang said that it’s against the official guidelines to deactivate the car’s speed limiter as it is considered to be a modification. As a result, it has invalidated the record established at 431.072 km/h. Because of this incident, Guinness World Records is currently reviewing this category with expert external consultants to make sure that its records are fairly reflective of its achievements in the field.
