Twenty years ago I heard a rumor that Chevrolet was working on a 385 horsepower Corvette Z06. Everyone was worried about the Y2K virus, and a majority of our fans used AOL to reach dupontregistry.com. Meanwhile, a secret project was being finalized in Molsheim, France. The resurrection of Bugatti shocked the world, so the brand has decided to look back on their major milestones. In their latest press release we see the Bugatti Veyron Legends in two decades of dominance.
Every example of the Bugatti Veyron is powered by an 8.0L sixteen cylinder engine with four turbochargers. The design was finished by 2000, but it took extensive testing to get it production ready. The first cars available for sale were built in 2005. They offered 987 horsepower and 922 lb-ft of torque. Not only is that more torque than most diesel trucks, it is available between 2,200 and 5,000 rpm.
Many speculated the car would be a flop, but the Veyron evolved. It spawned Grand Sport, Grand Sport Vitesse, Super Sport, and a host of one-off builds for wealthy clients. Tell us your favorite Veyron in the comments below, and click the link to find one for yourself!
