  • Bugatti Divo hot-weather testing

    Readying any new car for production is no simple process. Preparing to launch a new Bugatti only heightens the work. Bugatti is currently putting the new Divo through its paces in hot-weather testing, according to a post on the company's Facebook page. The Bugatti Divo debuted last August with an emphasis on agility and corner carving—not just high speeds. In fact, the Divo's top speed is capped at 236 mph, which is far less than the Chiron's 261 mph. The car also marks a return to Bugatti's long-lost business model of coachbuilt cars. That is the process of building bespoke bodies on...

    High-riding Bugatti not ruled out

    Although Bugatti chief Stephan Winkelmann has gone on the record as saying the French brand won't launch an SUV, a high-riding model hasn't been ruled out. Winkelmann has revealed that a crossover-influenced sports car is a possibility for a second model line, CAR reported on Friday. It's a route...

    Bugatti La Voiture Noire won't be ready for at least two years

    The Bugatti La Voiture Noire was one of the star debuts of the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, but its owner won't see theirs for at least two years.

    Bugatti Royale to return as electric super sedan?

    Now that it is no longer chasing the production car speed crown, there are whispers Bugatti will add a more comfortable, more practical model to its lineup. It may even be a battery-powered model, Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann suggested in a March 6 interview with Bloomberg. “There, I would...

    Final Bugatti EB110 SS ever built surfaces for sale

    Another day, another classic supercar for sale. This time, it's slightly more special because this is supposedly the final Bugatti EB110 SS ever built.

    Bugatti's second model line might be electric, top speed not a priority

    Bugatti's second model line, a vehicle separate from the Chiron and its derivatives, may be a very different animal. The brand's CEO, Stephen Winkelmann, foresees Bugatti building an electric daily driver, he said in an interview published Wednesday on Bloomberg. The executive shared the car would...

  • Bugatti Baby II

    Long before miniature cars for toddlers to drive around in were made popular, Bugatti had already done it in 1926. To celebrate the brand's 110th birthday, the French luxury brand decided to make another one. Taking a page from the original Bugatti Baby, the Baby II was revealed Monday at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The original Bugatti Baby was a gift from Ettore Bugatti to his youngest son Roland decades ago. However, feedback from customers who adored the child-sized Bugatti prompted the company to produce 500 of them back in the day. The brand plans to honor the same...

    Bugatti has paid homage to the legendary Type 57SC Atlantic with a one-off hypercar unveiled on Tuesday at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. Called the La Voiture Noire, French for “The Black Car,” the one-off creation is based on the platform of the Chiron and honors a...

    Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic celebrates its 80th birthday and it still looks stunning

    Eyes widen when cars fetch six-figure prices at auction. Mouths drop when the bid reaches seven figures. Eight figures? Remarkable, and the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic is one of only a few cars that has achieved such value—$30-plus million to be exact. For the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic's 80th...

    Astronaut Jon A. McBride experiences Bugatti Chiron at Kennedy Space Center

    Astronauts handle some of the wildest vehicles mankind has ever built. Naturally, it only makes sense to put a former astronaut in the passenger seat of a Bugatti Chiron to see how it compares. Last Friday, Bugatti did just that when it placed astronaut Jon A. McBride in the passenger seat of the...

  • Bugatti EB110 at Jay Leno's Garage

    Since it acquired Bugatti in the late 1990s, Volkswagen Group has done an impressive job of returning the French brand to the pinnacle of performance and luxury in the car world. However, VW's wasn't the first attempt at returning Bugatti to its glory days of the 1920s and '30s. You see, long before there was the Veyron, there was the EB110. It was built during the 1990s when Bugatti was under the stewardship of Italian Romano Artioli, an industrialist who revived the brand which had previously been dormant since 1952. He's also the guy behind the Lotus Elise, but that's another story. At...

In a year-in-review announcement from the French luxury and supercar brand on Wednesday, Winkelmann explicitly said there will not be an SUV from Bugatti...

    Owner takes Bugatti Chiron to its top speed

    While most owners of the Bugatti Chiron will never come close to the top speed potential of their cars, some are more than happy to push their cars to the limit. One owner recently did just that at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds in Merritt Island, Florida, a site with a 2.3-mile straight that...

    Bugatti Chiron won't get open-top version, land speed record attempt

    Bugatti fans hoping for a reveal of an open-top Chiron along the lines of the Veyron's Grand Sport and Grand Sport Vitesse models are set for disappointment as the French marque has no plans for such a car. That was the response from Bugatti boss Stephan Winkelmann to a question posed by Motor...

  • 2008 Bugatti Veyron interior for sale

    A sum of $150,000 is no insignificant amount of money. One could do many things with that kind of cash, but for the ultra wealthy, that's a drop in the bucket. In other words, spending that much on a car's interior, a Bugatti Veyron's interior mind you, is not out of the realm of possibility. Listed for sale on eBay is the complete interior from a 2008 Veyron, and it has a Buy It Now Price of $149,999. According to the seller, all of the components were removed prior to the car's owner taking delivery. That's probably a separate story on its own, but the dealer notes the owner had the cockpit...

    Driving a Bugatti Veyron has to leave you always wanting more. That's because the top speed is likely to remain an ever elusive target. The average person, even the "average" Bugatti owner, simply doesn't have enough space to see just how far they can push the machine. Radim Passer isn't your...

    Bugatti boss claims Chiron could hit 280 mph, but don't expect an attempt

    Koenigsegg set the industry ablaze when it used an owner's car to set a 277.9 mph top speed world record for street legal production cars. Since then, all eyes have been on a handful of rivals, including Bugatti, which held the production-car record for years. Now, the French supercar brand says...

    Bugatti's W-16 engine will be last of its kind as hybrid future approaches

    Bugatti does things on a grand scale. Since 2005, the French automaker has shoehorned a massive 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W-16 engine into the rear end of its supercars. The latest and greatest machine to use this engine is the Divo hypercar, which is based on the Chiron. That duo might be the...
