    Thread: If you could mod perfecction?

      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

      Because so many wheels are made that can handle the 252 mph top speed lol. Those things, like the rest of the car, are pretty much one of a kind!

      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.

      Excerpt from above: 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!"

      You may want to look into how many parts actually came from the VW/Audi/Porsche parts bin. I guarantee you that there's power left to be unleashed. What we need is one rich guy with enough imagination and interest, to buy one in the name of the aftermarket, and let the top shops in the country play ball.

      Obvious Performance Enhancements:
      Thicker Top-Flow IC's
      Straight-Through Exhausts
      Increased Boost psi (this is all VW/Bugatti plays with to go from 16.4 to SuperSport)
      'Constant Maximum Speed Setting' for suspension and transmission
      Race prepped interior
      Race Fuel and Tune
      Lighter Wheels

      Even though the Veyron was released with 1000+hp and the SS at 1,200hp, they are by no means 'at the limit' of what they're actually capable of.

      Remember, that with enough money, knowledge, interest, and patience, anything is possible.

      What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

      they didnt make a track version... they made a lightweight version... they were so anal about saving weight that they didnt even put paint on the car... the polished the aluminum... there nutz!!! here it is

      That has also been done with aircraft for the same reason.

      A science of vague assumptions based on debatable figures taken from inconclusive experiments and performed with instruments of problematic accuracy by persons of doubtful reliability and questionable mentality

      The high-performance sports car would have a single-seat cockpit, a racing look, about 1,200 hp and an estimated production volume of 70 units with a price of 2,5 million euros.

      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.


    27. 04-30-2008 01:01 AM #27
      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.


    28. 05-01-2008 12:25 PM #28
      LOL someone find out how much one drag radial would cost for this car

    29. 05-11-2008 11:38 AM #29
      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.

      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.

      With 1001 hp, I'd say 4000 lbs isnt that bad. An E36 M3 weighs more than that and is still a very well performing vehicle at a measley 240 hp.

      I stopped in to the my local Bugatti dealer the other day and drooled on the floor model they have.

      The dealer came out and BS'd with me for a few. The maintenance on these bad boys is out of freaking control.

      Oil Change: $12,000

      First Scheduled Maintenance: $75,000 ($60,000 of which is for the TIRES)

      And they have a monitoring system that knows if you turn that second key. They will know, they will call you to let you know that they know, and then they will immediately VOID your warranty.

      That system also tracks each and every car. They know where you are and how fast you are going at all times.
