Bugatti veyron

Bugatti Veyron The Fastest Car in the world

The Fastest Car in the world The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is a mid-engine Grand Touring Car. The Super Sport version is the fastest production car in the world, with an average speed of 431.072 km / h (miles 267,856 hours). The original version has a top speed of 253.6 miles per hour (408.1 km / h)
Designed and developed by the German Volkswagen group and produced by Bugatti Automobiles SAS at its headquarters in Château St Jean in Molsheim (Alsace, France), was the chief designer Hartmut Warkuss Veyron, and the road was designed by Jozef Kaban of Volkswagen, with Much of the work Engineering under the guidance of former VW engineer, Bugatti Engineering implemented and now head Wolfgang Schreiber.
The car driver Pierre Veyron, after the French, the 24 Hours of Le Mans win in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti firm said. It was named “Car of the Decade” (2000-2009) of the BBC TV series Top Gear.
A number of specific variants are produced, including two Targa tops.

Bugatti Veyron The Fastest Car in the world

The Veyron has coupled a 8.0 liter W16 engine with sixteen cylinders in four banks of four, the equivalent of two narrow-angle V8 engines in a “W” configuration. Each cylinder has four valves for a total of sixty four, but eight of the narrow range configuration to two overhead camshafts driving two banks of cylinders one need only four camshafts.

Not just a super car that carries on the name of racing driver Pierre Veyron, who, while racing for the original Bugatti car manufacturer, won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939, Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is the second fastest car in the world and the most powerful, it can easily pass as a super hero`s car like Batman. It has the fastest acceleration speed, reaching 60 mph in 2.6 seconds.
Endowed with W16 engine-16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders fed by four turbochargers, a dual-clutch DSG computer-controlled manual transmission, the Veyron has a length is 4462 mm (175.8 in) a wide of 1998 mm (78.7 in) and hight of 1206 mm (47.5 in).

Counting a sum of 10 radiators, for the engine cooling system, for transmission oil, a heat exchanger for the air to liquid intercoolers, for engine oil etc., the car has a power to weight ratio of 529 bhp/tonne.

 If we talk about performance we are dazzled by this supercars power to reach 200 and 300 km/h (124 and 186 mph) in 7.3 and respectively 16.7 seconds, wining for herself the name of the quickest-accelerating production car in history. If we count the fact that the top speed of Bugatti Veyron is 253.2 miles per hour (407.5 km/h), a speed limited electronically to prevent tire damage (it can run even faster) we can understand why this spectacular car must consume 40.4 L/100 km (4.82 mpg) when it`s running at top speed and in city driving 24.1 L/100 km.

A model drove by superstars like Tom Cruise, couldn`t name itself cheap, rising the Bugatti Veyron at least of $1,700,000, a price that measures it`s quality. Many new designs has been released since 2006, the color might have changed, but the speed and power remain the same.



Bugatti Veyron gets another honor — ‘meanest’ car

Manufacturers take pride in “green” cars honors and automakers like Honda, Nissan and Toyota aggressively use the accolades in various marketing and public relations campaigns.
But not so much exotic carmakers like Bugatti and domestic truck manufacturers Ford, Dodge and Chevy. They’ve all been awarded positions on the dubious list of the “meanest” cars — the country’s biggest environmental losers.
Bugatti’s position on the top of the bad list is nothing new. It’s a notorious gas guzzler, which the Italian manufacturer doesn’t much care about since the Veyron is among the most exclusive and fastest cars made.
Among gas guzzlers, the Veyron’s 8 mpg in city driving is the lowest average of any car and the only single-digit average.

So, while the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) just released its 14th annual environmental ratings, it also has the reverse list — the least efficient cars and trucks available in the United States

Here are the top-12 least green or “meanest” cars and trucks for 2011.
