Bugatti Veyron’s high-tech components being meticulously assembled into an automotive work of art. Watching the car coming together, coupled with an admiration for the technical beauty of its structure, gave the designers the idea of finishing the car in its pure material configuration – meaning no color coating. The result is the EB 16.4. Veyron “Pur Sang”, a two-tone study of pure materialness showing the car’s true essentials: carbon and aluminum.
Bugatti Veyron Engine And How Does It Work?
The Bugatti Veyron is a car built around an engine. Essentially, Bugatti made the decision to blow the doors off the supercar world by creating a 1,000-horsepower engine. Everything else follows from that resolution. So let’s start with the engine. If you want to create a 1,000-horsepower engine, it has to be able to burn enough gasoline to generate 1,000 horsepower. That works out to about 1.33 gallons (5 liters) of gasoline per minute.
We need a 16-liter engine to burn 1.33 gallons of gas per minute. That actually makes sense. The engine in the Dodge Viper is 8.0 liters in displacement and produces 500 hp.
The carbon monocoque holds the engine plus the passenger cell, while the polished aluminium panelling is enhanced by reflections in the sculpted bodywork. Interestingly, the rawness of the materials even more strongly highlights the dual character of this car: performance power coupled with cruising comfort, structure and body, dark and light.
- The engine has four valves per cylinder, for a total of 64 valves.
- It has a dry sump lubrication system borrowed from Formula 1 race cars, along with an intricate internal oil path to ensure proper lubrication and cooling within the 16 cylinders.
- It has electronically controlled, continuously variable cam timing to create optimal performance at different engine rpm settings.
- It has a massive radiator to deal with all of the waste heat that burning 1.33 gallons of gasoline per minute can generate.
Everything about the engine is superlative. In order to harness all of this horsepower and torque, you need an amazing transmission.
Tires Of Bugatti Veyron
The tires for the Veyron are unique. They’re specially designed by Michelin to handle the stress of driving at 250 mph. The tires need to be sticky like a race car’s and able to handle 1.3 G’s on the skidpad. However, they also need to last longer than the 70 or so miles of a typical race tire. The tires are 14.4 inches (36.6 cm) wide. Specifically, the tires measure 245/690 R 520 A front and 365/710 R 540 A rear, where 245 and 365 are the width in millimeters (9.5 and 14.4 inches respectively). The rims are 520 mm and 540 mm in diameter (approximately 20 inches). These tires, in other words, are massive – the rears are the widest ever produced for a passenger car.
Their pressure is monitored automatically, and they can run flat for approximately 125 miles (201 km) at 50 mph (80 kph). According to Michelin, the run-flat detection system “plays an integral role in active safety in PAX System.
Interior Of Bugatti Veyron
The seats of Bugatti Veyron is two and in lavish style. The interior is swathed almost completely in leather – the dash, seats, floor and sides are all leather. Only the instruments and a few metal trim pieces interrupt the leather experience.The seats of Bugatti Veyron are too much comfortable that a person likes to sit in car.
The colour of the hood extends to the interior of the cockpit, and re-emerges behind, at the level of the rear wing. The colour of the hood extends to the interior of the cockpit, and re-emerges behind, at the level of the rear wing. The interior is done in Hermes leather and features new internal door handles reminiscent of handles used on Hermes trunks, there is also a Hermes wallet which is designed to fit inside the center console and a Hermes suitcase designed to fit inside the trunk is also included. The car is only available in a unique combination of ebony and etoupe colors with a beige interior with black seats.
The Veyron is also likely to represent the far end of the automotive performance spectrum for some time to come. To create a car much faster will require adding even more weight, and delivering even more power to the wheels. The added weight means diminishing returns in the power-to-weight domain. Additional power means more wheelspin.
Look at a Champ car and consider how radical its appearance is compared to a passenger car. Consider also that a Champ car does not go much faster than the Veyron. The Veyron probably approaches the outer limits of the passenger car envelope, and we are unlikely to see much beyond the Veyron in terms of performance.
