2015 Bugatti Veyron | new car review
It is the world's fastest car. Period.
Exterior styling isn't the best in the industry.
Since its introduction back in 2005, the Bugatti Veyron has undergone only the slightest of alterations, but that’s not to say it doesn’t come in a variety of shades and hues. Crafted to aerodynamic perfection, the Veyron isn’t the prettiest mode of transport out there, but it seldom matters when you have the ability to zoom past nearly everything on the road.
Innovative on all counts, the 2015 Bugatti Veyron’s cabin is just as unique as the rest of it all. Starting from the five gauges in the instrument cluster, right up to the slender A/C vents at either end of the dashboard, it’s all a little different, a little extraordinary. When in the driver’s seat with your foot on the pedals that emboss the silhouette of racetracks and your hands clenching the steering wheel, there’s an overwhelming sensation that makes you want to drive the Bugatti fast. Very, very fast.
Four versions of the 2015 Bugatti Veyron are available, each a little different from the next. While the standard Veyron is anything but standard, it is equipped with the ability to ripple tarmac while grinding to a halt from 100 km/h in just 2.3 seconds. The Grand Sport on the other hand, combines state of-the-art technology with the beauty of a convertible, and while the Super Sport flaunts a unique carbon fiber and orange paint job, the Vitesse kicks it up a notch by being the World’s Fastest Convertible to date.
What’s on offer?
In standard guise, the 8.0 litre 16.4-cylinder engine puts out a mind boggling 1,001 horsepower and catapults the road legal rocket to a top speed of 407 km/h. Enter Super Sport territory, however, and those numbers don’t look so impressive anymore. Generating a ground shaking 1,200 horsepower and a tree uprooting 1,500 Nm of torque, the Super Sport gets mated to a 7 speed twin-clutch gearbox and dispatches a standstill to 100 km/h sprint in just 2.5 seconds, before continuing to its 415 km/h limited top speed.
The Bugatti Veyron is a name that is at the tip of many tongues and a picture that is stuck on many a walls. Although it may not be the prettiest or the most practical vehicle out there, it is definitely the quickest. So if you’ve got the money, go out and get yourself a 2015 Bugatti Veyron, because while other manufacturers downsize, the Bug is definitely on the right path to entering the history books.
