    $15k BMW Bike vs $1m Bugatti Veyron – Who Will Win?

    A clash of the titans. Two worlds go head to head: car vs bike.

    It’s also a clash of prices too: $15k on a BMW S1000RR motorbike, or $1 million on the Bugatti Veyron. Which is the best option?

    As the Bugatti driver highlights, the Veyron has iPod connectivity and is far more comfortable. But does it offer the thrill and excitement the motorbike can, at a fraction of the cost?

    Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Black Bess Is the NEW “Legend”

    bugatti-legend-black-bess-veyron-grand-sport-vitesse

    The penultimate edition in a series of six special edition Bugatti Veyrons honoring the most important people and cars that have shaped Bugatti’s history has been revealed ahead of a scheduled debut at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show on April 20. Part of the Les Légendes de Bugatti (Bugatti Legends) series, this fifth car is reminiscent of the famed Bugatti Type 18 affectionately known as Black Bess, which at one point was the fastest road car in the world.

    The Type 18, built between 1912 and 1914, was one of the most important Bugattis of the pre-war era. It was powered by a 5.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivered close to 100 horsepower, which was enough to see it reach a top speed of 100 mph–a speed previously reached only on race tracks. This makes the Type 18 a legitimate forerunner for the Veyron, and is thus regarded as a Bugatti Legend.

    The Type 18 known as Black Bess is one of three Type 18s still in existence. Only seven were built in total. The car was named after an English racehorse and is currently owned by Evert Louwman, who has it displayed at the Louwman Museum at The Hague in the Netherlands. He has allowed Bugatti to show the car in Beijing next week alongside the modern Bugatti Legend Black Bess Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

    The exterior of the modern version features a carbon fiber exterior, painted black but with 24-carat gold accents. Inside, the car features leather trim on most surfaces, with a mixture of Beige and Havanna tones used. The steering wheel, in red, draws a clear reference to the historic Type 18 Black Bess. This accent has also been picked up and continued in the red decorative stitching on the outer bolsters of the seats and in the seat belts.

    As with all of the Bugatti Legends, no changes have been made to the mechanicals of the special Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which means peak output from the car’s quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 remains at 1,184 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is limited to 233 mph, though we know the car is capable of hitting 254 mph–with its top down. The 0-62 mph run takes 2.6 seconds.

    bugatti-legend-black-bess-veyron-grand-sport-vitesse_100463230_l

    Three Bugatti Legend Black Bess Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse supercars will be built, each priced at 2.15 million euros (approximately $2.98 million). Considering all of the previous Bugatti Legends have been sold, we suspect this one won’t last long.

    Struggling Bugatti Can’t Sell $85Million Worth Of Veyrons

    Struggling Bugatti Can't Sell $85Million Worth Of Veyrons
    There may be trouble brewing with the supercar specialists at Bugatti. The French brand shocked the world with the Veyron when it debuted in 2006, but at eight years old, the hypercar may be getting a little stale to its wealthy clientele. What’s worse, Bugatti insiders say a replacement is still years away.Bugatti planned an initial run of 300 Veyron coupes when it went on sale, but the introduction of the convertible added an extra 150 cars to the docket. Generally, its cars have been built to order, other than some of its show cars. In December, Bugatti confirmed that it had sold its 400th car. Now, there are still about 40 Veyron Grand Sports to find homes for, according to Bloomberg, which amounts to about 62.5 million euros ($85 million) in product.

    Which Is the Best Bugatti Veyron Out Of These 3 Awesome Models?

    The Best Of Bugatti

    The Best Of Bugatti

    The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most insane vehicles ever produced. The first version of the Veyron contained an eight-liter, quad-turbocharged W-16 motor, good for 1,001 horsepower and 922 lb-ft of torque, enough to power an entire village’s worth of Honda Civics. It’s one of the fastest vehicles ever built, and it holds the world records to prove it.

    Sadly, we’ve reached the end of this era of excess. Bugatti will no longer manufacture new versions of the Veyron – once the current stock is gone, they’re done forever. Since we (and the auto community at large) will miss this warp-driven egg, we put together a list of the three coolest variants to ever grace asphalt:

    #3 –Grand Sport L’Or Blanc

    The Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc is one of the most visually striking Veyrons on the road (or, probably, sitting in somebody’s garage). Bugatti teamed up with the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin to create a single L’Or Blanc, which translates to “white gold.” The porcelain look covers the Bug both in an out, and it makes it look more like an expensive centerpiece than a full-on hypercar.

    Bugatti Veyron L'Or Blanc

    #2 –Jean Bugatti Vitesse Legend Edition

    This is one of the rarer Veyron variants on the market, as only three Legend Editions were made. The whole point of the Legend Edition is to throw back to one of the most sought-after vehicles on the planet, the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. The body is black, and the interior is covered with beige and brown, both of which are aesthetic homages to the definition of old-school cool. To top it off, the gear lever is finished in rosewood. Fancy.

    #1 – Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car

    If you think a standard Mustang GT Convertible is a fast drop-top, think again. The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car is a limited-edition Veyron that celebrates Bugatti’s capture of the world record for the fastest open-top production car. On Volkswagen’s test track in Germany, the Grand Sport Vitesse hit 254.04 miles per hour. And the orange paint gives the vehicle some loudness to match all that speed. Eight models went on sale for about two-and-a-half million bucks each.

    This Bugatti Belt Buckle Is $84000 Worth of Stupid

     

    When a Belt Buckle is worth more than a standard luxury ride you know there is something going a miss. This $84,000 Bugatti belt buckle is just plain stupid.

    BoldRide report: There’s been a bit of a resurgence in the trend of car seatbelt buckles as fashion accessories. Walk into any hipster’s clothing store of choice and you’re likely to see theCorvette, Mustang, and a few other names branded distastefully onto a seat belt designed to hold up your pants.

    For reasons unknown, Bugatti thought this new trend would be worth investing in. Except there’s only one problem — unlike the $20 or so it would cost you for a Corvette belt buckle, this Bugatti belt will set you back about $84,000. That’s more than the cost of your current vehicle (unless you own a Bugatti, obviously).

    But why in the name of all things good does a Bugatti belt buckle cost $84,000? Designed by famed Geneva watch-maker Roland Iten, this one-of-a-kind pants holder consists of “lightweight titanium and stainless steel,” and “has been entirely handcrafted, polished and assembled by master craftsmen in high-precision watch-making in Geneva, Switzerland.” Wow. Much fancy.

    As you would expect, an $84,000 Bugatti belt buckle designed by a famed watch-maker doesn’t just come with holes and a strap. Oh no, this belt features an extensive “click-free click” feature which allows the wearer the perfect width around his waistline every time. Welcome to the height of luxury.

    Bugatti and Corvette To Be New Autobots In Transformers 4 Movie!

    Bugatti and Corvette To Be New Autobots In Transformers 4 Movie!
    Bumblebee and co will be joined by two new autobots for Transformers 4 in the form of a Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse and a C7 Corvette Stingray!

    For movie lovers and car lovers this is huge!

    It is difficult to imagine that a Bugatti could get any cooler, so knowing that there will be a Bugatti that can transform into a robot and save the world is pretty cool!

    We are unaware of any further details on this aside from the rumours that the Bugatti Veyron will be the car representing Drift and the Corvette Stingray will take the form of Slingshot.

    These won’t be the only surprises for the movie though with Optimus Prime set for a redesign and Mark Wahlberg being added to the cast!

    We are already excited for this one!

    What will the Bugatti looked like as a transformer?

    Can the Bugatti Autobot be as cool as the Chevy Camero that is Bumblebee?
