article imageThe first ever production Bugatti Veyron no. 001 goes on sale

By Daniel Woods     Jul 31, 2015 in Technology
In August a piece of automotive history is being put up for auction - the first production Bugatti Veyron ever made, no. 001.
The first production Bugatti Veyron ever made is going on sale at Sotheby’s in Monterey, California on the 13th August.
With an a output of 1,001BHP, top speed of 253MPH and 0-60MPH in 2.46 seconds, the Veyron is an engineering marvel and probably the most spectacular road car ever built.

The engine is actually two V-8 engines combined to create a W-16 engine complemented by four turbochargers, seven-speed, dual-clutch, semi-automatic sequential transmission, front and rear double-wishbone suspension, and four-wheel carbon-ceramic disc brakes with rear airbrake.
In order to contain its incredible power the car is fitted with 10 radiators, three used to cool the engine, two to regulate the car’s air-conditioning system, and one each for cooling off the transmission oil, engine oil, differential oil, hydraulic oil used by the spoiler, and the air-to-liquid intercooler cooling system.

Drawing inspiration from classic Bugatti colour schemes this Veyron comes in its original finish of Red and Black, fronted with a titanium grille, and features a beige interior.

The car has run up a mere 764 miles on the clock, and as a result through a Certified program, Bugatti has offered a unique pre-owned warranty with the car - two-year warranty and two additional years of service free of charge.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 “001” estimated auction price is between $1,800,000 and $2,400,000, and for such a significant a piece of automotive history, even at that price, it seems a very attractive investment opportunity.
