A bit of history about the car. It use to belong to Braian Harvy (Ex E17 Lead Singer) I saw the car in the Sun news paper when i was younger and fell inlove with it. A few years later it came up for sale and i bought it. It was blue with black leather back then and the kit as well as the wheels were not in the best condition at the time. I drove around in it like that for a while then decided to fit a new kit, and as anyone who knows the kit know`s the whole cars more or less needs a respray after, so i had it painted Kandy Tangerine and put some cream lether Vader interior and some Fusion ICE in it and then had Image Wheels make me some new rims. A few months later it went for an MOT and i went to pick it up an hour later to find they had driven the car into the ramp and the front bumper was smashed. Kandy paint cant be matched so the car needed a respray. The Tangerine was a bit hit and miss as some loved it and some not so much so i decided to go for the Kandy Red instead. I took it to Max Power Live a week after it was painted and won Best Paint. I went to the National BMW show 4 months after that and again won Best Paint, Best Convertible & Best Modified (Those are the only shows i`ve taken the car to) I was happy with the looks, but the 2.7 engine was a let down as people expected something special under the bonnet due to the flashy looks of the car, so i decided to do an engine conversion. I was thinking of a V12 Turbo, but needed something flashy to match the body, so decided on the twin turbo set up as no one had done one here like it. I also decided i wanted everything fabricated from scratch or at least polished. I still wasnt happy after as most cars have 1 or 2 of the 3 things which makes a complete car in my eyes(STYLING, ICE & POWER), but not many have all 3. I had the Styling & Power, but the Fusion ICE wasn`t doing the car any justice so decided to rip the interior out and start again and went for JL Audio equipment. Lots and lots of hard work went into the interior as the seats and doorcards had to be made from scratch. I`m very happy with it, but if i could change 1 thing i would leave out the red piping and perhaps put baseball type stitching or something instead. (No pleasing some people) :-), I then had Image make me another set of rims, uprated the suspenssion and brakes too. Basically the car has been built from scratch and everything that could be changed was change. I now feel i have a complete car. It`s just a shame i dont get to drive it due to me working abroad. How much have i spent so far? I could have bought a Ferrari with the amount i`ve spent, but wheres the fun in that? Anyone with enough money can buy a Ferrari and have the same car as you, but i know there is no other car like mine anywhere and that is the fun for me. I have to remind people that it`s also a show car. I didnt do half the things on the car for practicality. I did it cause i could and i have another car for daily driving so this is just a toy. Anyway thanks for looking and reading and please leave a comment regardless of what you think ;-)

Ho and i`ve just had a different set of wheels made again. I will put them on the car and take some new pics ASAP!

Land speed world record with the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

The new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport takes production sports cars to a whole new dimension

Wolfsburg/Molsheim, July 4, 2010 - on a beautiful sunny day at 25 degrees the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport achieved a new landspeed world record for production cars, on the proving grounds of the Volkswagen Group at Ehra-Lessien (nearby its headquarters at Wolfsburg). In the presence of the German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV) and a representative of Guinness Book of Records the Super Sport achieved an average top speed of 431 km/h.

Saturday, 2 pm - Bugatti`s Pilote Officiel Pierre Henri Raphanel puts his helmet and gloves on, pulls the safety belts tight whilst the engineers check the car a very last time: tyre pressure, temperature, all systems go. Then the orange black Super Sport crosses the light barrier, from now on the time will be taken, within one hour the car has to drive from South to North and then in the opposite direction. No one but the driver is allowed to touch the car during this time. The tension rises. A few minutes later we can hear from the left side the sound of a starting jumbo jet coming closer towards us. First we perceive the headlights of the Veyron, then we can recognize the shape of the car, a loud wooosh.... and Raphanel dashes in top speed past us. The GPS-tachometer stops at 427, 933 km/h. Now the same procedure from the opposite direction. This time the car reaches 434, 211 km/h. As average top speed the representatives of the "TÜV"and Guinness generate a value of 431, 072 km/h (268 mph). This even hit Bugatti`s engineering team by surprise.

"We took it that we would reach an average value of 425 km/h," explains Bugatti`s chief engineer Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, "but the conditions today were perfect and allowed even more."

The climax of the Veyron series: the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

Had a model been especially popular or highly successful in races, Ettore Bugatti`s customers often pushed the master to tease out of the engine a few horsepower more for their future car. Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. had been in a similar situation when their existing customers asked the companyto not only design their second model optically differently but to also create a version with a sportierand more extreme driving experience. The result is a car with a uniquely high performance of1,200-hp (882 kW) offering experienced drivers a whole new dimension of excitement, with a maximum torque of 1,500 Newton metres and a limited top speed of 415 km/h (to protect them tyres) but, the technique of the Super Sport is identical to the record car. The first five Super Sports to come off the production line will constitute a special series of their own, with the same configuration as the landspeed record car.

The Super Sport is a consequent of the further development of the classic exclusive 1,001-hp Bugatti Veyron 16.4, launched in 2005. This model offers a stunning set of specifications, such as the twin clutch gearbox with seven speeds, the extraordinarily precise driving performance in bends and excellent stability when braking and accelerating.

Continuous work in extreme performance ranges lead to constantly new conclusions, which enabled the engineers at Bugatti to develop the Veyron into a direction in which the driver can reach new dimensions. Every modification is designed to produce an even more powerful car for an agile ride. Four enlarged turbochargers and bigger intercoolers have been used to boost the power of the 16-cylinder engine, and the chassis has been extensively redesigned to maintain safety at extreme speed - thanks to slightly raised main-spring travel, stronger stabilisers, and new shock absorbers with a complex architecture originally developed for racing cars. This gives noticeably more precise control of the wheels and the car as a whole. With lateral acceleration of up to 1.4 G and improved interaction between the tyres and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Super Sport offers perfect handling and even more powerful acceleration of 1,500 Newton metres on corner exits.

The body has been fine-tuned to improve aerodynamic efficiency and maintain perfect balance in every situation, while the new fibre structure of the all-carbon monocoque ensures maximum torsion rigidity and passive safety - at reduced weight. The skin is made entirely of carbon-fibre composites, and the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is available in 100 per-cent clear-lacquered exposed carbon on request.

Dynamic exterior

Every detail of this car, and not just its use of advanced motorsport technology, harks back to the pioneering spirit of company founder Ettore Bugatti. This brilliant designer came from a family of artists, and his philosophy was always to combine mechanical perfection and exterior beauty. This ethos remains alive and well at the company, and the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is wholly unmistakeable, with every external modification serving to coax greater performance from the car.

The Super Sport`s flat, elongated silhouette is immediately recognisable. The 16-cylinder engine gets its air from two NACA ducts integrated into the roof, rather than from scoops above the engine. The front air intakes have been expanded and reshaped, with the lower one extending elegantly around the sides to the wheel arch. The revised back looks sportier due to the double diffuser and a centrally arranged exhaust system.

Bugatti has a tradition of making super-sport versions of successful models, usually with racing chassis and supercharged engines. These cars were considered as true racing machines for diehard Bugatti devotees. The most successful were the type 55 and type 57S; only around forty of each were built.

Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. has sold 260 Veyrons and 35 Grand Sports by now, of which 249 Veyrons and 22 Grand Sports had been delivered. The Super Sport will begin production this autumn at Molsheim along with the Veyron and the Grand Sport. The first five cars - known as the World Record Edition – are in a special black exposed carbon and orange finish and have already been sold.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport will appear for the first time in public in California at the Pebble Beach Concours weekend in mid-August and will be featured at The Quail, Monterey Historic Races at Laguna Seca and on the concept lawn of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
