Bugatti Veyrons Spotted at Hotel de Paris in Monaco
It is rare to see one Bugatti Veyron, but to see four of them is special treat. Well, our friends over at MDKSuperCars managed to spot four of these extremely fast supercars at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco.
This video features the Bugattis as they are parked and captures all the details of the styling, both inside and out. It also has shots of the incredible W16 engine.
Of course seeing a Veyron still is rare, but driving them is what really takes the cake. The footage also captures a Bugatti Veyron as it is driven.
One note to anybody wanting to buy a Veyron, expect for it to take a while to get out of parking lots because you are going to have a crowd of people checking out your ride.
In this video Harry Metcalfe drives the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse as a support vehicle in the 2013 Mille Miglia. It is interesting to watch the modern supercar along side with some of the vintage cars driving in the race. The car is driven in more of an everyday style than in most videos featuring a Veyron.
It is interesting just how livable the supercar car be driving in town. It is borderline boring at slow speeds, you really need a track to truly enjoy this car. It is an incredible car, but perhaps not quite as exciting as one might like in such a higher performance car at least at slow speeds. Having said this if given a good driving road with no traffic you can have a lot of fun driving it.
This video is of a Porsche 911 Turbo drag racing a Bugatti Veyron and a BMW S1000RR sports bike on an unused runway. The 911 Turbo is a 997 variant and there is little doubt that the Veyron will have no problem beating the competition. The Porsche does get a jump start in the video, but the turbocharged flat-six just can’t keep up with the huge W-16.
The Veyron features a 2.4 seconds 0 to 60 mph time, so there aren’t many cars that can keep up with it. If the race was against the new 991 Turbo S the race would have been closer as that car has a 0 to 60 mph as low as 2.8 seconds, but the Bugatti would still win. However, with the Porsche costing a fraction of the cost and still being able to dust most cars on the track the rear-engined sports car looks pretty good.
There is no question that a Bugatti Veyron is fast, but just how fast can an open top Veyron be? Apparently, there was no top speed world record for an open top car, so Bugatti decided to set the record. This video shows evo’s Harry Metcalfe as he chronicles the run that set the record.
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse set the record at 254 mph! Not bad for a car that had its top open, so not as aerodynamic as it could be. After setting the world record Harry gets the pleasure of driving the car and just cruising along at 220 mph. The amazing thing about the car is that even after being driven at those high speeds not even a cooling fan kicks in.
