WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

Looks like a sportback

Posted by: Razor Jul 13 2009, 01:48 PM

If it's a sportback even remotely based on the Veyron, I'll kill thirty-seven men for it and a small ox to get my hands on it.

looks like a scirocco. hottest of hot-hatches tongue.gif

seriously though...is there speculation on what type of car it will be?

Posted by: OHirtenfelder Jul 14 2009, 12:38 AM

It does make me think Scirocco, which isn't a bad thing, I guess. But it is a Bugatti so I do expect more from them.

Luxury sedan.

Posted by: McKhaos Jul 14 2009, 03:29 AM

Could be a production version of the Eb 112 concept :


Which would make it sort of a bigger Panamera. Crap. Why don't people design proper sedans anymore?

Posted by: moe Jul 14 2009, 03:35 AM

I wouldn't be surprised if it was similar in ways, but the EB112 is ancient at this point. I'm pretty sure they started from scratch here. I've heard it's going to share parts/platform with the new "Grand" Bentley.

Posted by: McKhaos Jul 14 2009, 04:02 AM

I was talking from a design point of view.

Posted by: Aircooled Jul 14 2009, 05:50 PM

Yeah it has to be luxury, the economy is too out of wack currently to spend the mad $$$ on engineering and R&D to out do the Veyron performance wise.

Posted by: moe Jul 17 2009, 01:58 PM



The tailpipes are just ridiculous. I mean seriously, it's like the new E-class having four fog lights...one step too far. Rumor is it's going to be called the Bordeaux, and could be anything ranging from a super-lux sedan to a shooting brake.

ONE TAILPIPE FOR EACH TURBO!

Oh wow. I really like that.

EDIT: 217mph family fun. Epic.

Posted by: Razor Sep 14 2009, 07:06 AM

Holy... holy shit.

Posted by: Synesthesia Sep 14 2009, 08:18 AM

Whoa, that's... intense. I wonder what the price will be. I really wish it didn't have 8 tailpipes and I hope you can get the two tone without the shiny bare metal...

Posted by: b0mb3r Sep 14 2009, 08:47 AM

i saw the price was going to 900,000 euros... i love the interior but I don't get the gauges in the middle.

Posted by: Bjorn Sep 14 2009, 09:05 AM

eight exhaust outlets is four too many. The rest of it is very pretty.

Posted by: dukenukem Sep 14 2009, 09:06 AM

Burn it. Burn it with fire!!

Posted by: Phix Sep 14 2009, 09:29 AM

Maybe it's the fact that the two tone is stainless steel/chrome. I... I guess this thing has, uh, potential if it were in something that wasn't so shiny?

It almost looks like a Chinese rip off of the Panamera from some angles.

Posted by: moe Sep 14 2009, 09:38 AM

The eight tailpipes is beyond excessive. I'd like to see two cleanly integrated ones instead (four would be acceptable, but still gaudy for a luxury sedan). I think it'll look gorgeous in all black. And that interior...it's even prettier than the outside.

This thread is now about ways to make enough money to buy a car/house like those pictured on the previous page. Selling cocaine is not an option. ready? go.

I just noticed the Bugatti emblems in the doors for the mansion.

Bankie: human trafficking, working the black market organ trade, arms smuggling, selling yourself for sex, selling yourself for medical experimentation, selling yourself for military experimentation, mercenary who takes ANY contract regardless of how unethical it may be, gold smuggling, diamond smuggling, smuggling in general that doesn't include cocaine, finding the cure for cancer, gold digging (the marriage kind), sucking an eccentric billionaire's dick for a billion dollars (and spend it all on therapy the day after)...

Start digging for oil in your backyard.

Yeah, fuck you, moe. We don't all live in Arab Land.

Go cum some more oil.

God the Saudi's are going to love this.

Super shiny and uber-excessive? SOLD!

Posted by: moe Sep 14 2009, 03:05 PM

^ The Emiratis will love it more. There are a LOT of Saudis that have got the cash, but don't like to flaunt as much. A debadged S600 or LS460 will do just fine. Emiratis on the other hand...

If I could, hell yeah I would. This thing is sheer outlandish over the top exuberance. I love it, and it makes the phantom look rather pedestrian.

Posted by: moe Sep 17 2009, 11:28 AM

This is hilarious. The car has a badass hood though.

BORKED

Posted by: UserDrew Sep 17 2009, 07:58 PM

Wow, I don't know if I have seen anything this excessive! It's spectacular. From the split 1930s era windscreen to the 8 tailpipes this thing screams "look at me I am a billionaire". Nothing I would own if I had the money - not my style. It is what the new Bugatti is all about, being ultra exotic.

To look really cool. Also didn't some classic Bugattis have hoods that opened that way?

The excessive number of exhaust tips is something Bugatti did on the Atlantic. That doesn't mean it looks good. But it offers an explanation as to the designers' thought process.

There really isn't a function. The center-hinged (butterfly) hood is more of a styling concept, once again borrowing from the Bugattis (and other makes) of yesteryear.














Posted by: DB9 Sep 19 2009, 09:09 PM

I assume thats the reasoning for the split rear window too (from the Atlantic).

Posted by: MustangAficionado Sep 19 2009, 09:54 PM

But while the split hood on the classics allow for actual maintenance, these appear just to make everything harder to get at.

It's all design. I can't imagine that Bugatti designers were thinking about ease of maintanence when they designed this car.

Even if it did have a conventional hood, I can't imagine that maintanence on the W16 would be any easier.

Afterall, the Veyron needs to be seperated in half into two peices for its 60,000 mile service. None have reached that point yet.

Posted by: moe Sep 20 2009, 04:29 AM

@Mustang: Right because I'm sure a Bugatti owners are going to be doing their own maintainance. They'll be more concerned with exclusivity, "exoticness", heritage, and uniqueness. IMO, the hood opening that way adds a little bit of each of those.

Posted by: Tony Two Shoes Sep 20 2009, 04:33 AM

^ Well, I guess I was speaking from the standpoint of a Bugatti mechanic.

I know that any Bugatti owner will not be doing any of their own maintenance. Hell, I don't think many Bugatti owners dust the dashboard of their cars.

But you hit the nail on the head. Bugatti buyers are looking for exoticness.

*I'm only a half cup of coffee into my day.*

Posted by: moe Sep 20 2009, 04:42 AM

Eh, my comment was for Mustang. You just happened to post a reply before I did. I've edited my post to reflect that.

Posted by: RallyCat909 Sep 20 2009, 08:23 AM

Dont people read automotive history anymore?

Posted by: MustangAficionado Sep 20 2009, 12:18 PM

You guys thought i figured a Bugatti owner even knew how to pop the hood? I'm saying it's silly, not that it should allow for easier sparkplug access. Like the gas filler caps on mustangs having the fake bolts and metal - it's trying to go back to heritage but by doing it a very cheesy way.

Posted by: moe Sep 20 2009, 01:20 PM

^ I dunno, I think it's pretty cool.

Posted by: Phix Sep 20 2009, 01:55 PM

I kinda agree with Mustang, at least with the owners of this car not knowing or probably not even caring what's under the hood. But, I don't think it's cheesy. Definitely not tacky Mustang territory with the fake bolts and metal cause this is the actual hood of the Bugatti.

But, yeah, probably less than 0.0001% of the owners of this thing will ever do their own mechanical work lol. Let the actual Bugatti mechanics bitch about lack of easy access into the engine bay.

Posted by: Aircooled Sep 20 2009, 02:12 PM

Think how much you would get paid to work on Bugattis all day.

My comparison was to point out the fake bolts just being there for appearance while they served a function originally. The split hood served a purpose before, now they brought it back for no purpose other than to half imitate the classics.
Of course, this is their right. It's like line/name. I really don't think it looks bad - chessey (like hood pins) can look good. Just think it's cheesey smile.gif
