Our incredible 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 was the 15th Veyron produced and the first UK delivered example in 2006. It was displayed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that summer. As the first UK-delivered Veyron, it has an additional chassis plate marked ‘UK1’ which is visible under the bonnet. It has covered just 16,276 km (10,113 miles). The stamped service book records regular H. R. Owen Bugatti London servicing, including in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018. This example also benefits from two recent H. R. Owen Bugatti London visits; firstly for a ‘service and tyre package (LMP 3)’ in 2017 totalling £31,716, and latterly for its annual service including replacing the front radiators, prop shaft, air conditioning condenser, left-hand heat deflector, and front handling flaps in 2018 at a cost of £35,310 (at 15,909 kilometres). Supporting invoices are on file and the Veyron also comes with a car cover, battery charger, handbooks, old and current MoTs, PDA, speed key (boxed), and a spare key.
Since its launch in 2005, the Bugatti Veyron has been regarded as a supercar of superlative quality. It was a real challenge for developers to fulfil the specifications that the new supercar was supposed to meet: over 1,000 hp, a top speed of over 400 km/h and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 in under three seconds. Even experts thought it was impossible to achieve these performance specs on the road. but that was not all.
Bugatti set the benchmark even higher with the plan of turning the supercar into a luxury road car suitable for everyday use. The development of the Veyron was one of the greatest technological challenges ever known in the automotive industry.
Barely any parts, components or systems could be taken from existing car concepts and used in the Veyron. Everything had to be developed from scratch in order to achieve the performance specs and then everything had to be implemented in the car. The process also drew on the experiences of other industries in which materials and systems are routinely subject to extreme speeds and forces, such as aviation and space travel. The Veyron is the first – and the only – supercar to be developed and constructed with a series configuration that can master any driving scenario at any time. Even ten years after its launch, the supercar is still setting benchmarks and inspiring emotion and enthusiasm across the globe.
Much like the great Bugattis of the past, the Veyron is a masterpiece of engineering and design. There is so much that can be said of this car. It was the quickest accelerating and decelerating street legal production car in the world and the world’s fastest, with a recorded top speed of 253.19 mph. It was also the most expensive, at about $1.25 million each. Statistics aside, the Veyron certainly lives up to its namesake and will continue to do so with the past, present and future legends of Bugatti.
