Auto Art 1/12 Bugatti 16.4 Veyron Blue & Black 12532BK



Bugatti Veyron 16.4 The idea was to design a sportscar which would explore the limits of the technically possible and which would, in every respect, be committed to the extreme. The idea was to design a car which would uncompromisingly unite the passion of the designer, the skill of the engineer, absolute luxury and racing technology. The idea was to interpret the car as a work of art. The idea was to build a Bugatti. The Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron was named after the last man to win the Le Mans 24-hour race in a Bugatti, Pierre Veyron. Bugatti wanted to build a street car that would have the world's most powerful engine with possibly a 4-digit horse power figure and be the world's fastest car at over 400 km/h. The result is a sleek, exciting sports car promising enormous power from an all-aluminum 7993 cc W 16 engine mounted longitudinally ahead of the rear axle on a separate aluminum subframe and running four KKK turbo-chargers producing 987 bhp at 6000 rpm. The top speed is estimated to be 252 mph (406 km/h), although owners wanting to test this for themselves will have to contact the factory who will dispatch a mechanic to check the car over, fit high-speed tyres and remove the electronic speed limiter especially for the purpose. Zero to 186 mph should take just fourteen seconds. The Veyron's 7-speed sequential gearbox is unique in that it boasts a dual clutch transmission whereby one clutch controls gears one, three, five and seven whilst the other controls gears two, four and six, the result being a constant surge of power when accelerating. Special run-flat capability Michelin PAX tyres in 265 front and 365 rear, the largest tyre sizes ever fitted to a production car, are mounted on 20.5" (520mm) diameter 12-spoke wheels. Actual length : 14.5" This model is made up of 518 separate metal and plastic parts, including photo-etched plates, metal wiring, screws and nuts.
