Check out this cool car! It’s a special edition Bugatti Veyron Vincero which celebrates the brand’s 100th anniversary. Featuring a carbon fiber hood and engine cover, new black wheels, and an interior that has been reupholstered in black and white with carbon fiber trim. Pretty Cool!
Power comes from a slightly modified version of the Bugatti’s quad turbocharged 8.0-liter 16 cylinder engine which now produces 1109 hp and 1310 Nm of torque instead of the standard car’s 1001 hp and 1250 Nm of torque. The slight increase in power occurs thanks to an enhanced cold air induction system and an optimized exhaust.
The exterior gets a minor styling facelift as Mansory adds several carbon-fiber body parts including a shorter hood, a new front apron, revised side skirts, and a new diffuser. Among the other key design features are a “V” insignia applied to the front grille, larger air outlets on the side and back, LED daytime running lights, and fully-forged turbine-design wheels.
Inside, the Linea Vincero Bugatti Veyron receives exclusive design touches such as LED lighting fitted to seats, door linings and dashboard as well as carbon-fiber trim applied to top of the instrument panel, center console, and door handles. The new limited edition Linea Vincero Bugatti Veyron 16.4 will be available to order at Prestige Cars in Abu Dhabi for an undisclosed amount of money.
When asked about cool cars and which is the coolest, the Bugatti Veyron will always be up there with the best of them. Here we showcase some amazing pictures (which make cool wallpapers) and video of this beast. The cool Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is the world’s fastest convertible. With a top speed of 407kmh (252mph) it tops the former record holder, Ferrari’s Scuderia Spider 16M, by 92kmh (57mph).
The powerful 1,001HP roadster boasts a 0-100km/h (0-62mph) time of just 2.5 seconds and, as you’d hope, comes fitted with ceramic brakes for cool, controlled stops from high speeds. These impressive speeds are achievable when the convertible’s polycarbonite roof is fitted, but is engineered with drag reduction in mind – fetching as much as 360kph/224mph with the roof off. If you don’t care for the hassle of a rigid roof, Bugatti have come up with a unique umbrella-like cover (video below) that will protect the interior from the rain and fold back down in a snap.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport’s chassis and panels are made from both carbon fiber and aluminum, in a complex re-engineering of the coupe model to maintain crash protection with the roof-less structure. The tires for the car were made specially by Michelin to withstand the high temperatures generated at its high speeds. They will apparently cost $17,000 or £12,000 to replace.
Only 150 examples of this €1.4 | $1.75 | £1.25 million supercar will be made, with around 40 to 50 going to registered Bugatti owners. Unlike with Shelby’s Ultimate Aero, Bugatti are sticking to their old-school roots and will not be releasing an electric version, despite the price tag.

Celebrating the cool Bugatti car at the 2009 Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza, Bugatti presented 4 “Centenary” models! to mark the company’s 100th anniversary. The four new cars are part of the Bugatti’s centenary celebrations paying tribute to four legendary Bugatti drivers who drove the Type 35 racing car prior to World War II. These include French driver Jean-Pierre Wimille, Italian driver Achille Varzi, English driver Malcolm Campbell and German driver Hermann Zu Leininger.
Here are the four Bugatti Centenary models:
The Bugatti brand is almost inextricably linked to the Type 35. The Type 35 Grand Prix was by far one of Bugatti’s most successful racing models and its unmistakable radiator grille and 8 spoke aluminum wheels have become one of the coolest features of Bugattis latest efforts, namely the Veyron.
Each of the four new Veyron Centenaire Editions get their own specially mixed color scheme, and these colors consist of blue, red, beige and green. Additionally, other exclusive aesthetic details include the grille, front wings, and doors being made of polished aluminum to give off a mirror effect. Inside, the headrests bear one of the signatures of the four legendary drivers, and there is also a special commemorative plate detailing the significance of the cars.
