What’s behind the doors of the Mullin Automotive Museum aren’t just cars, but works of art in every shape and form.
The Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic has had plenty of modern renders before, but Bugatti was agonizing close to building their own homage to the most…
Bugatti report that they’ve created a new concept car dubbed the Bolide. At just 2,733 lbs. and possessing north of 1800 horsepower, one would think Bolide is French for booming, especially considering its 5:23.1 Nordschleife lap time and uncorked W16 exhaust sound.
The world of the hypercar is an interesting place. Both impressively conscious and willfully ignorant of the volatile world around it at the same time. Consider this latest rumor from Automobile as proof of that duality—While Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren are working on mind blowing hypercars draped in technology and hybrid powertrains, Bugatti is reportedly bringing an even more powerful Veyron called the SuperVeyron (yes, that’s the actual name) to the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
CarsUK is reporting that McLaren will be unveiling its highly anticipated hypercar–codenamed P12–to a select (i.e.–wealthy) group of clientele during next month’s Monterey Car Week in Pebble Beach, California.
Audi has reportedly inked a deal with Ducati that gives it exclusive first dibs on the purchase of the storied Italian motorcycle manufacturer.
This is a car for the one percent of the one percent of the one percent. Essentially a topless Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, the Vitesse boasts the same 8.0-liter, 1200-horsepower, 16-cylinder, quad-turbocharged engine as the Super Sport. That car can hit 267 miles per hour (over a very long section of road). We expect the top-speed to fall somewhat with the removal of the roof (we can’t imagine traveling almost one-third the speed of sound without a roof is safe), though.
Started in 1987, EyesOn Design was born as Eyes On The Classics, a car show backed by the heads of design at GM, Chrysler, and Ford, to judge cars not on their presentation quality, but on their design. Besides putting some beautiful cars on display, EOD also serves as a fundraiser for the not-for-profit Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology.
2011 has been a busy year in the Winding Road offices, with auto shows, new model launches, and the usual comings and goings of the automotive industry filling the virtual pages of our website. Even with all the activity, there has been a near-constant stream of automobiles filtering in and out of our parking lot, giving us no shortage of vehicular material to write about.
