Exotic Cars: Bugatti Veyron 16.4

Page 1 of 2

2007 Bugatti Veyron 16.4.

To make other exotics seem cheap, impotent, conservative, and common by comparison, it takes an incredible car. To date, only a handful of ultra-exotics have accomplished such a feat. Cars like the Ferrari Enzo. Mercedes-Benz SLR and Porsche Carrera GT come to mind. Yet one overshadows them all: the Bugatti Veyron 16.4.

To be honest, we were a little apprehensive about evaluating the exotic Bugatti Veyron 16.4. After production delays and a prolonged hype that bordered on tiresome, we had our doubts. It wouldn t be the first time our hopes were dashed over a Bugatti. Since the late 1990s, its parent company, Volkswagen, teased us with exotic concept cars that never reached production. And prior to VW s involvement, the EB110 supercar of the early 1990s was good for some mind-blowing velocity (over 200 mph) before bankruptcy put the brakes on the car and the company s short-lived revival. Once assurances finally became reality and production cars began leaving the factory, it was obvious we wouldn t be disappointed again.

Yes, it s fast. Naturally, it s exclusive; yet how does it qualify as an exotic car above other exotic cars? The following is a look at the Veyron from a critical perspective, with an evaluation for a possible 100-point score on two distinct levels: luxury (for its indulgent power and appointments) and practicality (for its ease of operation, ergonomics and technology). If you re guessing off-the-chart scores for the former and a flatline reading for the latter, read on you might be surprised.

the luxury ride

It would be optimistic to hope that the Veyron will break the tradition of Bugattis existing mostly as stationary pieces in collections. There s simply too much technology and craftsmanship here to hermetically seal and leave idle. However, it s probably a million-to-one shot 1.4 million, that is, if you consider the price of admission.

Upon first seeing the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, a few preconceived notions are dispelled. First, it looks more appealing in person than in photos; the styling is more harmonious to the eye than it appears digitally. Even the signature horseshoe grille and contrasting paint scheme flow much better. On further inspection, one notices the Veyron s exotic exterior details little things like the number of places air flows in and out of the car in the line of duty and the lack of an engine cover.

For an exotic car with such prowess, you d imagine it to be a bear to control from inside a sparse interior. Rather, it s not a bad place to be, with loads of leather and aluminum trim. No-nonsense analog gauges relay the vital stats, including a unique horsepower dial. Rather than contain rows of excessive buttons and switches, the dash and console contain just a few multifunction controls for the essentials. The result is clean and lends itself to a less claustrophobic feel behind the wheel.

When you decide you need your space and separate yourself from your exotic surroundings, the Veyron is a handy tool. With all-wheel drive and the 8-liter, quad turbo, W-16 offering 1,001 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 922 lb-ft of torque at just 2,200 rpm, otherworldly speed is achieved with a mere twitch of your foot. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 moves from 0 to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds, 0 to 124 mph takes 7.3 seconds and 0 to 186 mph only requires 16.7 seconds of your time. The governed top speed is 252 mph.

Back in the day, car designer Ettore Bugatti is said to have stubbornly defended his use of mechanical brakes, saying his cars were made to go, not stop. Today s car thankfully abandons half that mantra with ABS plus drilled/vented discs in the front and rear, 15.7 inches and 15 inches, respectively. They re good enough to yank the 4,162-pound Veyron to a halt from 62 mph in 103 feet. The car rides on 20-inch by 10-inch rims in front and 21-inch by 14-inch rims in back, with Michelin run-flat tires all around.

It s fitting for a million-dollar plus car to offer a huge palette of exterior and interior color options. Bugatti tradition suggests you choose a primary and secondary paint color scheme, though the Veyron is still quite striking in a single hue. If you re a loyalist, consider less abrupt shades. We feel the Veyron makes enough of a statement without burning bystanders retinas.

The verdict

A $1.4 million car should not disappoint, and the Veyron is one of a few exotic cars that scores high marks for performance, style and comfort alike. We ve even warmed to the retro-styling cues like the grille and contrasting side sweeps.

Luxury score: 48/50

Now take a look at the more practical side of things on this exotic car

Every 2014 And 2015 Hybrid Car In The U.S. Ultimate Guide

2011 Toyota Prius

Turn back the clock by one decade, and there were just four hybrid cars on sale in the U.S.

One was the first-generation Toyota Prius . The original Honda Insight was still going strong as the most efficient vehicle on sale (and only plug-in cars still better it today). Honda also offered the Civic Hybrid. And Ford’s Escape Hybrid had just made its debut back in 2004.

Today, including different transmission options that figure has risen by dozens, giving consumers a fantastic range of options for fuel-efficient hybrid motoring.

Our guide to every diesel vehicle on sale in the U.S. has proven popular, so below is our guide to every hybrid vehicle currently on sale. We’ve only featured vehicles that don’t require plugging in, so you won’t find the plug-in Prius or Chevrolet Volt in the list.

Click on any vehicle’s name to go straight to our overview pages, with reviews, news and more.

2014 Toyota Prius C

Small Cars and compacts

It’s business as usual at the top, where the 2014 Toyota Prius C reigns supreme. It tops the list with 50 mpg combined economy, and an impressive 53 mpg city rating.

Next up is a relatively new entrant, the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. With a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine VW promises plenty of fun, but a Jetta diesel-beating 45 mpg is also there for the taking. Its closest rival in size, the 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid. matches it for combined economy, beats it in the city (44 mpg versus 42 mpg) and lags 1 mpg on the highway (47 mpg to 48 mpg).

Further down you’ll find the classy CT 200h from Lexus. It’s basically a Prius underneath, and although it manages a lower 42 mpg combined, it has the extra prestige that some buyers may be seeking. It also features a price tag that starts significantly higher, at $32,050.

The 2014 Honda Insight doesn’t have prestige to its name, but manages the same 42 mpg (41 mpg city, 44 mpg highway). If you want one for any reason you’ll have to act fast, as it isn’t long for this world .

The Insight might be on the chopping block but Honda’s sporty CR-Z  has earned a stay of execution. It returns 37 mpg combined with a continuously-variable transmission, or 34 combined with the six-speed manual–the only manual hybrid on the market.

It’s not the most efficient hybrid on the market but it’s peppy to drive–and the recent introduction of a supercharger kit makes it even more fun.

Ferraris

The F430

Engine: 4.3 Liter V-8

Top Speed: 196 MPH

0 to 60 in: 4 seconds

The F430 was Ferrari’s flagship model from 2004 to 2009.  It has since been replaced by the 458 Italia, but that doesn’t diminish the speed or sexiness of the car in the least.

The 458 Italia

Engine: 4.5 Liter V-8

The 458 was unveiled in 2009 as a replacement for the 430, and indeed this car improves upon the already unbelievable success of that model.  But the 458 also incorporates new technology developed by Ferrari in its Formula 1 program, and that accounts for this car’s even better performance.

Early Cars: Fact Sheet for Children

Who made the first cars?

Beginning in the 1770s, many people tried to make cars that would run on steam. Some early steam cars worked well, and some did not. Some were fire pumpers that moved by themselves, and others were small locomotives with road wheels. Beginning in the 1880s, inventors tried very hard to make cars that would run well enough to use every day. These experimental cars ran on steam, gasoline, or electricity. By the 1890s, Europeans were buying and driving cars made by Benz, Daimler, Panhard, and others, and Americans were buying and driving cars made by Duryea, Haynes, Winton, and others. By 1905 gasoline cars were more popular than steam or electric cars because they were easier to use and could travel further without adding fuel. By 1910 gasoline cars became larger and more powerful, and some had folding tops to keep drivers and passengers out of the rain.

How did the first cars work?

A steam car burned fuel that heated water in a boiler. This process made steam that expanded and pushed pistons, which turned a crankshaft. An electric car had a battery that powered a small electric motor, which turned a drive shaft. A gasoline car ignited fuel that caused a small explosion inside each cylinder. This explosion pushed the piston and turned a crankshaft connected to the wheels by a chain or drive shaft.

Who drove the first cars?

In 1900 wealthy people bought cars for pleasure, comfort, and status. Many doctors bought small, affordable cars because they were more dependable than horses and easier to keep ready. Rural Americans liked cars because they could cover long distances without depending on trains. They carried produce to market, went to stores and movies in town, and even used their cars to plow fields. Families in towns and cities liked cars because they were handy for errands, going to the train station, visiting relatives, going to church, and going on drives in the country. A family s house with a car in the driveway has been a common sight since about 1910. Young people liked cars because they could go to movies, restaurants, and other fun places instead of staying at home with their parents.

Why do so many people use cars?

Cars are fast, comfortable, nice looking, and fun to drive. They can go almost anywhere, and they are always ready for use. In many ways, driving is easier than walking, biking, or riding in a train, bus, or airplane. But owning a car is a big responsibility. It takes a lot of money to buy one and keep it running, and drivers must be trained, licensed, and always alert to avoid mistakes and accidents. It takes a lot of space to park cars, and too many cars cause congestion on roads and in parking lots. Some car owners have returned to walking, biking, or riding a train or bus when it s more practical or convenient. For most Americans, cars are a favorite way to travel, but there will always be a need for other types of transportation.

What was different about the Ford Model T?

Ford Model T

Built near the end of the Model-T era, this Model-T roadster came off the assembly line in 1926. Courtesy of the National Museum of American History.

The Ford Model T, made between 1908 and 1927, cost less than other cars, but it was sturdy and practical. It ran well on dirt roads and fields because it could twist as it rolled over bumps. The Model T looked like an expensive car but actually was very simply equipped. From 1915 to 1925, it only came in black because black paint dried faster than other colors, making it possible to build and sell more Model Ts. For all of these reasons, more Model Ts were sold than any other type of car at the time — a total of just over 15 million. Farmers, factory workers, school teachers, and many other Americans changed from horses or trains to cars when they bought Model Ts.

Why do most cars today run on gasoline?

The gasoline engine has been reliable, practical, and fairly efficient since about 1900. It is easier to control than a steam engine and less likely to burn or explode. A gasoline car can go much further on a tank of gasoline than an electric car can go between battery charges. Gasoline engines have been improved by the use of computers, fuel injectors, and other devices. But growing concern about chemicals that gasoline engines release into the air (i.e. pollution) have led to new interest in clean, electric cars and cars that run on natural gas, a vapor that is different from gasoline.

How many cars are in the Smithsonian?

There are more than 60 cars in the Smithsonian collection, but only 12 to 15 are displayed in the National Museum of American History. Some cars are in storage, and some are on loan to other museums. The production years of cars in the collection range from 1894 to 1990. There are experimental cars, cars that families drove, and racing cars. The Smithsonian has been collecting cars since 1899, and almost all of them have been given by people or businesses.

Where else can I see early cars?

Some of the Smithsonian s cars are on loan to the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio, the Onondaga Historical Association in Syracuse, New York, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing in York Springs, Pennsylvania. Major car museums not connected with the Smithsonian include the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada, the Imperial Palace Collection in Las Vegas, Nevada and Biloxi, Mississippi, the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California, the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana, and the Owl s Head Museum in Owl s Head, Maine.

Top 5 Biggest Mistakes to Avoid When Buying a Car

Continue Reading Below

5 Car Buying Mistakes to Avoid

When you re in the market for a new vehicle, the best thing you can do for yourself is be prepared. So here are the 5 biggest mistakes to avoid when purchasing your next vehicle:

  1. Thinking in terms of monthly payment. Not very many people walk into a car dealership and plan on writing a check or paying cash for their vehicle, and the salespeople know this. In fact, many of them rely on this fact in their sales pitch. This also explains why the negotiation almost always revolves around how much you can afford to pay for the car each month. But focusing on a monthly budget is by far the easiest way to spend too much on your next vehicle. When negotiating a price, the dealer can do a number of things to make almost any vehicle fit your budget. They can do this by adjusting interest on the interest rate. offer you a longer term on the loan, or restructure the financing in a way that creates a payment that fits into your budget. It may not seem like a big deal, but even a few extra percentage points or an additional year on the loan can add thousands of dollars to the total cost of the vehicle. When the average car payment in the U.S. has been between $471 and $482 per month for the last few years, it s worth looking at what that money is actually getting you.
  1. Buying new versus used. A vehicle is not an investment – at least not a good one. Vehicles depreciate in value quickly, so when you buy a new vehicle, you can expect it to continuously decrease in value from the moment you take ownership. In fact, a new car typically decreases in value by 25%-40% in the first two years. The best thing you can do is to let someone else take the initial 40% hit by buying a slightly used vehicle that is a year or two old.

Years ago, there was a good reason to buy new and that was for the warranty. Today, most vehicles have longer warranties that can still be in effect even if you buy a car that is a few years old. Additionally, you can often opt to purchase an extended warranty, which is typically far cheaper than the value the car lost in the first year or two.

Continue Reading Below

  1. Choosing the wrong vehicle. Are you a single person who needs a vehicle just to get you to and from work every day? Then you probably don’t need that $45,000 SUV that seats eight and can tow 5,000 pounds. You want a vehicle that meets your specific needs. Sure, there are a lot of cars and trucks out there that will turn heads, but keep in mind that many of these will come at a premium.
  • Not taking into consideration other costs. The actual cost of the vehicle is important, but what is often overlooked are all of the hidden long-term maintenance and insurance costs that go along with a vehicle. Keep in mind that car insurance premiums typically increase with the value of a vehicle, so buying a more expensive vehicle will increase your annual insurance costs. This can amount to hundreds, if not a thousand dollars or more per year.

    In addition to insurance, you have to take into account all of the maintenance costs. Vehicles need oil changes, new brakes, air filters, tires, and much more. Luxury or performance models are generally going to require higher end replacement parts that can cost much more than their standard counterpart.

    Finally, you need to consider gas consumption. The average person will drive between 10,000 and 15,000 miles per year. A vehicle that gets an average of 30 miles per gallon with today’s gas prices. you can expect to spend between $1,000 and $1,500 per year on gas alone. Now, consider a vehicle that only gets about 15 miles per gallon. Now you’re spending $2,000 and $3,000 each year.

    When you think about it, by the time you factor in gas, oil changes. insurance and regular maintenance, you can expect to spend $3,000 to $5,000 in addition to your monthly car payment each year!

  • Putting $0 down. There are a lot of incentives when it comes to buying a car, and you can often put yourself in a brand new vehicle of your choice with no money down. Sounds great, right? Not so fast. Remember, vehicles depreciate rapidly, so if you finance the full purchase price, you often find yourself upside down on the loan immediately.

    Being upside down simply means that you owe more than the car is worth. Remember, there are taxes and other fees that go into a new car purchase, and they are typically rolled into the loan if you don’t put anything down. That means as soon as you drive it off the lot, you owe more money to the bank or dealership than the vehicle is actually worth.

    This is a very bad idea if you intend on selling or trading the car in before the loan is paid off. If after three years you need to get a new vehicle and you owe $10,000 while the car is only worth $8,000, you will have to either pay $2,000 out of your pocket, or finance that into your new loan. It may feel good to walk out of the dealership with a brand new car without having to fork over a dime up front, but it will cost you.
