FACTS ABOUT BUGATTI
The Bugatti factory has narrowly avoided burning down—twice.
Founded by Ettore Bugatti in Molsheim, France, Bugatti has been pushing the boundaries of physics and engine capabilities in pursuit of speed since 1909.
In 1939, one of its early engines started a sizable fire due to a testing explosion.
Reportedly, the surrounding area was in peril of being engulfed as well. In 2001, when testing the first Veyron engine, that 1,200 hp mill allegedly generated enough heat that the factory building was in danger of being scorched.
The Veyron was a giant pipe dream that nearly didn’t come to fruition.
When Volkswagen’s Ferdinand Piech (grandson of famed Ferdinand Porsche) bought Bugatti back in the late 1990s, he had already been dreaming of a 1,000 hp super machine. His engineers had previously told him this would not be possible.
Along came to the Bugatti platform and his vision was realized several years later when the Veyron officially launched in 2005.
The Veyron requires 10 radiators to keep its quad-turbocharged W-16 engine functioning.
Three radiators handle the engine, while another trio tackles the air-to-liquid intercoolers: a separate unit for the air-conditioning, another specifically modulates the engine oil, and yet another cools the transmission oil.
One final radiator is dedicated to the differential oil. Each radiator takes 15 hours to construct, meaning the whole shebang takes nearly four weeks to complete the requisite 150 hours of labor.
Bugatti is a luxury brand that has been through its fair share of ups and downs but they haven’t stopped impressing us with the kind of automobiles they produce.
