It is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of the 2008 Bugatti Veyron to Kinetic. Worthy of a great photo-shoot, this beauty is now part of our top luxury cars stock.

The Bugatti Veyron will long be remembered as a benchmark in supercar design, as a model that not only established itself as the world’s fastest production car, but also resuscitated one of the most legendary performance brands.

In 1998 the Volkswagen Group acquired the rights to the defunct Bugatti, the once family-owned-and-managed concern that had built and raced some of history’s most successful and beautiful sports cars.

With so much technical expertise at its disposal, the acquisition of Bugatti portended momentous developments

The development of its first car was to take several years of gestation, however, as Bugatti built three concept cars equipped with a W-18 engine. This engine also found its way into the early concept version of the Veyron, which was named for the successful pre-war racing driver Pierre Veyron, and was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in late 1999. Almost a year later, the Veyron was introduced in its essential production form at the 2000 Paris Salon, now featuring an 8-liter W-16 engine.

The new W-16 was essentially two V-8s placed contiguously, sharing a common crankcase. With 64 valves and four intercooled turbochargers, the impressive engine developed a whopping 1,001 hp at 6,000 rpm. The W-16 also produced 922 foot-pounds of torque available as low as 2,200 rpm, providing an astonishing amount of power at the drop of a hat. Despite the Veyron’s curb weight of 4,163 pounds, these numbers were sufficient to propel the car to 60 mph from standstill in a mere 2.5 seconds, and to a top speed of 250 mph, which established a speed record for a production automobile.

The Bugatti Veyron is an unlikely promise of a supercar that not only delivered, but also took the supercar world to an unimaginable level.
