    Bugatti has finally given us a date for the reveal of its X-taillighted latest creation. The vehicle appears to be a track-focused hypercar and so far, all the brand is willing to say about it is quite cryptic. In a social media post, Bugatti pondered “what if…” and posted only the number...

    After its record-setting 0-249-0 mph run, Bugatti revealed that it had filmed the run using another Chiron driven by F1 ace, Juan-Pablo Montoya. But the Chiron isn’t really a camera car. Having seen a Russian arm once or twice, we can confirm that the Chiron, though many things, is not what...

    Stephan Winklemann, Bugatti’s CEO, says that his company’s peerless W16 could stick around into the coming decade because of collectors. While speaking to the UK’s Autocar, Winkelmann said that although Bugatti’s range of engines will have to expand, that doesn’t necessarily mean the W16 is...

    For all the fidelity of the LEGO Bugatti Chiron, it fails in one important aspect. It isn’t actually an automobile since it isn’t able to make itself move. But Donut Media is here to fix that. In this video, they attempt to make the 1/8th scale LEGO Chiron go 36.2 mph (which is 1/8th of 261...

    What? Is 261 mph not fast enough for you? Do you really need Bugatti to go faster to prove you should buy a Chiron? Well, too bad, because top speed records are soooooo 2013 and Bugatti CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, is interested in new and better stuff that you probably wouldn't even get. Speaking...

    Chiron, meet Chiron. No, it's not the latest buddy-cop show. Bugatti and Lego have put the brick Chiron and the carbon Chiron together in a new exhibition.

    In the realm of hypercars, the next great frontier is 300 mph. With automakers like Koenigsegg, SSC, Bugatti, and Hennessey all racing to be the first to produce a street-legal car that can make it into the third century, there are a lot of theories, too. Although Koenigsegg currently holds the...

    The Bugatti W16 and its massive 1,479 hp output is a staggering feat of engineering. One that the company CEO says will not be replaced. But there are good things to come, and it's not dead yet. The engine is now 13 years old, debuting in the Veyron with a piddling 987 hp, and Stephan...

    Franco-Danish relations haven’t been so good since Ingeborg of Denmark was queen consort of France, as LEGO and Bugatti are working together again. The two released a 3,600-piece model on June 1, and apparently really liked working together, because another model is being teased on Facebook...

    Despite having a speedometer that goes all the way up to 310 mph, no one really knows how fast the Bugatti Chiron can really go. One thing is for sure, or at least has been until now. Bugatti won’t try to go 300 mph because road tires just can’t handle it. Michelin now says, though, that the...

    Making cars go fast really isn’t that difficult. Drop it from a great height and even the Beetle can outrun a Porsche . But doing so that everything ends in smiles instead of tears isn’t quite so easy. It takes a lot of planning and the sort of attention to detail that Freud would have a lot...
