    Thread: If you could mod perfecction?

    1. 01-31-2008 10:46 AM #1
      We all know how the fastest car in the world pissing match has turned out...what id like to know is what a fully stripped or modified Bugatti could to in theory....Like removing cat etc...

      well you could always weld a big can of folgers onto the back of it, the honda guys are convinced that will give you a serious boost in power. Oh and you could slap layers upon layers of stickers on it too thatll give you at least another 500 hp to the ground but seriously why would you modify something thats perfect? to make it..... less perfect?

      I'd probably mess with the interior a little bit, maybe some wheels....that'd be about it. Some special paint work maybe too

      the irony is... you don't mod perfection!

      there is no such thing as perfection truth is there will always be some thing better that you could do

      I doubt anyone has the ability to improve the performance of the car. Look at how much money was throw at it in R+D. Impossible. The whole car is built to function around one another. You can't bolt on some oem stuff from a shelf onto a completely carbon fiber chassis and be like "yeah, I just made that da' bomb!"

      I guess you can paint it. Maybe a vtec sticker would yeild another 85hp at the wheels.

      id never touch it

      Id put this on it..

      No in all seriousness...wouldn't you only be doing it a mechanical disservice by modding it at all? This thing is so perfectly tuned I feel like touching anything with a wrench would be devastating.

      with a reliable 1001hp i wouldn leave the engine alone.

      all i would do is put drag radials on it.


    21. 04-30-2008 12:01 AM #21
      I'd head straight to ebay and buy like sixteen Turbonators.

      BTW, the Pur Sang edition, as noted above, was a limited production "Pure Bred" car. They cleared the carbon bits and used special aluminum to ensure even polishing. There were only five made. I think it would look killer with some polished Dymag's.


    22. 05-01-2008 11:25 AM #22
      LOL someone find out how much one drag radial would cost for this car

    23. 05-11-2008 10:38 AM #23
      It would be cool if some manufacturers started making performance parts for the Veyron. I'm sure the stock mapping is pretty conservative on a/f ratio and timing, so it would probably be possible to install an ECU and remap the ignition and fuel injection. Also, they could probably design some more aggressive camshafts for the car, as well as a better exhaust system. It is, after all, street legal, meaning it must pass emissions. If you upgraded the valvetrain, remapped the stock unit, and freed up the exhaust, I'm sure you could gain a lot of reliable horsepower out of the car. But the real question is, do you really need it?


      The obvious answer is no.


    24. 05-17-2008 09:50 PM #24
      Rip off the body panels and replace them with new ones that aren't ugly.

      Wait, better yet, replace the whole car with a new one that doesn't weigh 2 tons.


    25. 05-30-2008 09:10 AM #25
      I would put some 16"x16" gold BBS rs's with the biggest stretch ever! Def bag it for the most uncomfortable, but lowest bugatti on the planet... and dont forget the boser

      a lot of people are talking about changing the wheels and tires, but in reality you can not. those are the ONLY wheels and the ONLY tires you can/should put on this car.

      i have 2 in my cousins/sisters/uncles/brothers/nephews shed somewhere out in korea.

      Money no object:

      Pur Sang model

      - High flow air filters
      - Full titanium cat-less turbo-back exhaust(s)
      - Remapped ECU (boost, timing, and fuel changes)
      - Replacement wastegate actuators with stiffer springs
      - Replacement bypass valves
      - Dymag carbon fiber barrel and magnesium center wheels

      More power + less weight =

      Fuel expenses are the last thing on the mind of somone who owns a Veyron, let alone someone who would consider modifying one.

      true but not my point...car is fast enough as a street car and a track car...fuelling adjustments would make the car more of a pain in the ass you would be driving from one gas station to the next...weight reduction is all that is truely needed for this car.

      You can spend your millions on weight reduction. I'll spend some of mine on power adders too.

      at 4162 pounds and 1000 hp and already soaring to 60 in 2.8...where does it honestly seem the car is lacking? weight.

      this whole argument is funny. only a gangster ass dude would take out the back seats in his Veyron lol. i would never touch it. i would just be that guy with a veyron. and when you actually have a car that's worth almost 1.5 million dollars, you let me know if you actually want to void the warranty, b/c we all know how stingy vw is with their warranties ..... the trick answer is if i could mod perfection... i wouldnt.

      You are correct my friend it is funny...it's also funny to think a supercar capable 250+ mph would come with a backseat. get a clue.

      no no no, you get a clue man. it's obvious that i was being sarcastic.
      i'm all about leaving the weight that your car comes with as is. weight reduction is silly unless it's a track car.
