Sunday Stills : B for Bugatti
I can’t think about anything on B other than Bugatti Veyron, B for Ball is for kids
Volkswagen group, today owns Bugatti, Lamborghini and Bentley
Here is the low down on the key facts about this truly extraordinary car
The Veyron is powered by a compact 8.0-litre, 16-cylinder engine developing an astonishing 1001PS and 1250Nm of torque. The 16.4 refers to the 16 cylinders and 4 turbos that the Veyron’s mighty engine boasts.
That powerplant is expected to enable the Veyron 16.4 to breach 400kph – or around 250mph
All that power is distributed through a four-wheel-drive transmission featuring a sequential paddle-shift, seven-speed, double clutch,
Bugatti claims that the Veyron 16.4 can stop from 250mph to standstill in ‘considerably less than 10 seconds’.
Veyron 16.4 is expected to reach 62mph (100kph) in three seconds, and 186mph (300kph) in less than fourteen.
Michelin has had to produce unique tyres to handle the Veyron 16.4’s unique performance. They feature the PAX run-flat system and can driven on flat for around 125 miles at up to 50mph. The rear tyres at 14.4-inches (540mm) in width are the widest fitted to a production car
