Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron Study

The 2003 Bugatti 16.4 Veyron Study represents a beautiful blend of traditional craftsmanship and ultra-modern industrial production together with an exceptional design. The Bugatti EB 1604 Veyron was displayed as a design study in the spring of 2002 but now it has reached the series production status and the producers have released the first performance figures. Thus, the new 16-cylinder engine is able to cover the 0-300 km/h sprint in less than 14 seconds, while the top speed is governed at 406 km/h. The design study which was admired at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show featured a large number of technological highlights, beginning with a load-bearing chassis of the EB 1604, which provides minimum weight as well as maximum strength and rigidity through its carbon fibre structure. A new type of sequential-shift seven-speed gearbox with twin clutches, transmits power to the wheels. Michelin developed the tyres for the EB 1604 Veyron and they ensure a pressure monitoring system together with a run-flat capability, thus making it possible for the car to be driven for more than 200 km in the case of pressure loss. The impressive dimensions of the Bugatti EB 1604 veyron show a 2,700mm wheelbase, a length of 4,446mm, a height of only 1,206mm and a width which reaches 1,998mm.
