    It’s usually hard to feel bad for someone in a Bugatti. Clearly, you’re doing fine. It’s even harder to feel bad for someone who was in a fender bender in their Veyron.

    Bugatti is reportedly working on only its third new car since being purchased by VW nearly two decades ago and it’s going down market. The bargain basement Bugatti will be based on a plebian Porsche platform. How gauche. According to Automobile , which quotes an unnamed source within VW, the...

Even though these supposed to be crazy-fast supercars for the super-rich who care not a poop for pedestrian concerns such as money, the only time you ever see...

    It’s been a while now since Bugatti debuted the Chiron and still we don’t know what the top speed is. Rumors abound and the speedometer goes all the way to 310 mph, but we may not know the car’s true top speed until tire technology catches up with this speedy machine, according Bugatti test...

    Although it was widely publicized as the fastest production ever when it launched, the Bugatti Veyron was never really held in as high esteem as other hypercars.

    Bugatti's Veyron has led a good life over its ten years of production.  Seemingly countless special editions, a targa variant and power level changes have helped to keep the car to feel fresh for a full decade, but all good things must come to an end.  Rumors have been swirling for quite some...
