Trees Aren't Gonna Fix This

Trees Aren't Gonna Fix This

Bentley said last week it would be planting 100 trees around its England factory in the name of “sustainability.” Its VW neighbor Bugatti also chimed in this week that it’d plant over 4,000 trees to “offset the CO2 emissions from its Chiron hypercar, offices, and factories,” according to Motor Authority. Both of these efforts, I’m sad to report, are stunningly useless.

Bentley and Bugatti...

Bugatti's New 'Chiron Noire' Special Edition Gives Buyers A $3-Million Choice Of Black, Black Or Black

Bugatti's New 'Chiron Noire' Special Edition Gives Buyers A $3-Million Choice Of Black, Black Or Black

The worst part about buying yet another supercar with my monthly allowance from Mom and Dad, which they give me as part of our agreement that I leave them be to day drink and flirt with the young tennis instructors at the country club or whatever, isn’t that I’ll have to forgo my usual expenses—a private jet to the islands, giving my poorer friends a vacation home as their wedding gift—for...

Bugatti And Volkswagen In Talks To Build An Electric Four-Seater

Bugatti And Volkswagen In Talks To Build An Electric Four-Seater

Bugatti caters to something of a niche market: very rich people who are interested in owning a fast, rare car. But that’s not quite enough to satisfy yet another growing sector of the automotive population: electric vehicle enthusiasts. Enter Volkswagen, who might just be funding Bugatti’s EV dreams.

That’s right. The goal is for Bugatti to develop an electric crossover or grand tourer that...

Koenigsegg Regera Proves It Only Needs One Gear To Set 0-400-0 Record

Koenigsegg Regera Proves It Only Needs One Gear To Set 0-400-0 Record

Sometimes rich people really dig into an engineering project only to complete it, lift their head and somberly wonder to themselves, “what was the point of all this?” When that happens, they create arbitrary records for their projects to attempt to beat, which Koenigsegg claims it has done by launching a Koenigsegg Regera from 0 to 400 km/h (248.5 mph)and back to 0 in a claimed record time.

Bugatti Sold Out Of Its $33,000 Kiddie Car In Three Weeks

Bugatti Sold Out Of Its $33,000 Kiddie Car In Three Weeks

The Bugatti Baby II , a new take on the tiny car founder Ettore Bugatti made for his youngest son’s fourth birthday in 1926, is a lot of things. You could call it a revival of history, as Bugatti does, or perhaps “the only Bugatti most of us can afford.” Or you could take the most direct route, which is a $33,000 kiddie car for the rich that sold out in three weeks.

Somehow, this $33,000...

This Is Likely The Best Shade-Throwing In Motoring History

This Is Likely The Best Shade-Throwing In Motoring History

I suspect many, perhaps even most of you reading this are familiar with what I’m about to talk about, but it’s one of those things I haven’t considered in a while. Recently, though, it did pop back into my head, and for some reason I thought about it with a fresh, dewy brain, and I appreciated it all over again, I think in a way I haven’t in years. It’s something that Ettore Bugatti once said...

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ Is A $4 Million Salute To Breaking The 300 MPH Barrier

The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ Is A $4 Million Salute To Breaking The 300 MPH Barrier

Recently, Bugatti went out and did what many thought couldn’t be done with modern tire technology: It broke the 300-mph barrier , hitting nearly 305 mph in a “near production” Chiron plastered in orange stripes. And because success means nothing without commercial gain, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is here to commemorate the occasion—all for about $4 million each.

Come one, come all,...

Koenigsegg And Bugatti Are Still Passive-Aggressively Trash-Talking Each Other

Koenigsegg And Bugatti Are Still Passive-Aggressively Trash-Talking Each Other

Earlier this week, Bugatti claimed that the 304-mph Chiron could have gone faster if they had gone to a higher altitude place, like, say Nevada. They brought up Nevada, of course, because it is the first high-altitude place that comes to mind and not because Koenigsegg did its record-setting speed run there.

Why Bugatti Thinks It Could've Gone Faster Than That 304-MPH Speed Run, But Chose Not To

Why Bugatti Thinks It Could've Gone Faster Than That 304-MPH Speed Run, But Chose Not To

Just recently, Bugatti took a pre-production, monstrously powerful Chiron out to break the 300-mph barrier that, until now, was said to be elusive only by virtue of the limits of modern tire technology . But while Bugatti hit nearly 305 mph , the company wants everyone to know it could’ve gone faster.

Bugatti announced its speed run, in which it claimed to hit nearly 304.8 mph at the massive...

Bugatti Is Retiring From Speed Records

Bugatti Is Retiring From Speed Records

The day after cracking a record of 304.7 mph with its Chiron Sport, Bugatti has announced that it’s all done with that sort of thing. It’s retiring from trying to set speed records.

That’s a pretty surprising announcement for a marque that’s well known for absolutely crushing records. Bugatti set a speed record in its Veyron Super Sport in 2010 with a speed of 267.8 mph, followed a few years...

Bugatti Isn't Taking Your One-Off Model Requests, No Matter How Much Money You Want To Pay

Bugatti Isn't Taking Your One-Off Model Requests, No Matter How Much Money You Want To Pay

Money doesn’t buy taste, honey, and Bugatti doesn’t want yours. Don’t try to bribe the company into building you something from your puny brain, because it doesn’t want to. It’s going to build what it wants, and you can either buy it or not, because Bugatti exists to design the cars and you exist to buy them.

Yes, yes, this is terrible news, but at least you have 42 other vehicles at home to...

The Bugatti Chiron Just Cracked 304 MPH On Special Michelin Tires

The Bugatti Chiron Just Cracked 304 MPH On Special Michelin Tires

When the $3 million Bugatti Chiron launched a few years ago, we all marveled at how slow it was. With an electronically limited top speed of 261 mph, it didn’t seem capable of matching its predecessor the Veyron Super Sport, which hit a Guinness-certified 267.8 mph record in 2013 . It seemed like such a disappointment for the world’s petrostate oligarchs. Where are your bragging rights...

Bugatti Needs To Do A Top Speed Run For The Chiron Already

Bugatti Needs To Do A Top Speed Run For The Chiron Already

I was having a really hard time caring about the Buggati Centodieci this week . Another special-edition version of an already limited car selling for an ungodly amount of money. Then, I saw that its top speed is 231 mph. And now I’m angry.

The way I see it, Bugatti’s modern reason for being is the top speed record. They Veyron smashed the record and instantly catapulted Bugatti into the modern...

Here's The Bugatti EB110-Inspired Centodieci Before You're Supposed To See It

Remember how you were complaining that Bugatti just didn’t make an expensive enough car for you, and how whatever they do make sure feels out of place if you try to take it to Radwood? Buddy, are you in luck, because official pictures have just leaked about Bugatti’s newest low-volume car, a nearly $9 million dollar beast designed to resemble Bugatti’s famous early 1990s supercar, the EB110 .

Bugatti Already Has A Crossover Design But There's 'No Budget And No Decision' Right Now

Bugatti Already Has A Crossover Design But There's 'No Budget And No Decision' Right Now

Crossovers and SUVs, over the past few years, have been the food coloring of the car industry. What starts as a few drops here or there in a giant bowl of white icing quickly spreads into a pale swirl, until, suddenly, that last bit of color gets mixed in and the whole thing turns a vibrant shade of whatever—in this case, bulky vehicles. That food coloring is reaching its veins into Bugatti ...

The Bugatti SUV Will Be Dumb

The Bugatti SUV Will Be Dumb

The latest rumors indicate Bugatti may be developing an SUV as a second production model alongside the Chiron. As someone who normally doesn’t give a shit about companies wanting to make money with SUVs, this one makes me feel a little sick.

I Don't Believe Bugatti for a Second

Bugatti has to be one of the last automakers out there that has either does not offer an SUV or has …

Tracy Morgan Buys a Used Bugatti Only to Get It Sideswiped 30 Minutes Later

Tracy Morgan Buys a Used Bugatti Only to Get It Sideswiped 30 Minutes Later

Man, poor Tracy Morgan seems to have the worst luck with cars and driving, sometimes. It was about five years ago that a Walmart truck crashed into the bus he was in, severely injuring him. This accident, of course, is far less serious, but very news-friendly because it involves a Bugatti Veyron he only managed to drive a half mile away from the dealer before someone ran into him.

The car is...

There's a $6,000 Bugatti Veyron for Sale in India, I'm Pretty Sure

If you’re looking for what is very likely the bargain of the century, you need to head over to India, where someone appears to be selling a stunning Bugatti Veyron for an astoundingly cheap ₹ 4,00,000, which comes to about $5,700 in damp American dollars. That’s a discount of about, oh, $1.2 million or so, which is pretty damn good. It’s possible that this Veyron may have been modified, or...

Bugatti Says Its New Car Will Have a Body 'Which is Not Today on the Market' But What Could That Be?
CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.  

Bugatti, a maker of rapidly-moving motor carriages targeted at people who could also afford to buy, say, a locomotive if they so chose, revealed, via an interview with their president, Stephan Winkelmann, that an upcoming next Bugatti would have a body style that’s “is not today on the market.” What the hell could he...

Time's Running Out to Buy Yourself a New Bugatti Chiron

Time's Running Out to Buy Yourself a New Bugatti Chiron

We know, we know, $3 million is an investment. It takes time to decide whether you want to put seven figures toward something, but time isn’t always a given. Time certainly isn’t a given with the 1,500-horsepower Bugatti Chiron, which has less than 100 build slots left.

You’d better get to thinking already.

Car and Driver reports that “less than 100” is the figure straight from Bugatti, which...
