The history of the Bugatti luxury automakers is unlike any other in the luxurious auto world. It was formed in the year 1909 by an Italian immigrant in Germany. The town of Mosheim where the factory was based was given to the French after WWI so the Bugatti is known as a French luxury sports car. With the death of Ettore Bugatti in 1947, so did the company shortly afterwards. Up until that point the Bugatti had already become known as a first class race car with wins in the 24 hours at Le Mans in 1937 and 1939. The Bugatti engines were hand built to specifications that the heads and other components on it needed no gaskets because of how flat and matched they were when put together. It was not until the early 1987 did the modern Bugatti luxury sport car company reenter the market. The first car in decades was the EB110 in 1991 which could go from 0 to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds. It had a top speed of 213 mph. As time marched on so did the improvements to this luxury sports car company in what they created. In 2005 the Bugatti Veyron went into production.
This was the fastest legal production car in the world at that time. It was powered by an 8L W-16 four turbo powered engine that produced 1001 horsepower. It could attain a top speed of 267 mph. In the years of production from 2005 to 2014, the horsepower increased to over 1,200 all on a chassis that weighed less than 1,100 pounds. The last one made could go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. To date there is no faster or more luxurious vehicle on the road a The Veyron are no longer available from the manufacture and its replacement has yet to roll out of the factory. Its replacement is the Bugatti Chiron which is highly anticipated to surpass the performance of its predecessor the Veyron. Version of the Veyron on the road today includes the Grand Sport, Super Sport and Vitesse with special editions of each. While the fuel mileage of a Bugatti is known to be 8 mpg in the city and 14 mpg on the highway, there is no other form of land transportation that can get you to where you are going faster. If speed is your concern then mileage is immaterial and this is what all Bugatti’s offer their drivers.
