I don't think I could/would mod this. It was made with such precision to give it all it's power and speed that messing with something could lead to a series of mishaps. I would however do the exhaust and interior. But anything else and I would imagine you would risk the integrity of the warp field this thing produces.
Some of this may not apply here in the US, between Magnusson-Moss and the First Sale doctrine (although first sale has been invalidated for foreign-made goods, now). However, VAG could get around that by simply requiring that all US-spec Veyrons be leased from Bugatti, with the lease term being indefinite, and the fee being $1/month once it's paid off.
And, IIRC, Tiff Needell mentioned, in his review of the Veyron, that it would phone home about him finding the traction control shutoff as soon as he turned it off.
It's not unprecedented to void warranties for high-performance driving, either - some manufacturers of far more plebian cars have even sent undercover agents to well-publicized autocrosses, and recorded VINs of cars to void warranties.
1000 horsepower at 4000 pounds, if you really think that a bugatti veyron doesn't have the best performance parts (including exhaust) known to man you are sadly mistaken, and on the topic of weight reduction, there is a reason this car with more horsepower than a small airplane weighs more than small airplane, it would sruggle to stay on the ground as it is, and last but not least if you plan on lowering the veyron why don't you look up the ride height in its performance mode (after it lowers itself) if you get any lower your going to be sweeping the dust off the streets
So if you think you can find a sensor, timer, or higher performance part for a veyron, think again, the reason it doesn't have that option is that you can't handle that option
To enjoy the speed of bugati one should take care about the safety measures, the interior of the car is dam awesome i wish i would be also having bugati, customers of Bugati used to take special driving lessons . that's great.

Trust me, no one who can afford to buy a Bugatti Veyron is a big enough tool to actually try and modify it lol, and you can't put different tires on it, the Veyron production was halted for months while they tried to create tires that could withstand the acceleration and speed of the car. Also, there are only a few mechanics that are qualified to work with that sort of an engine and you won't find them at a modifying shop. Lastly, to people who are saying that they would remap the engine and boost. Do you really think that a little computer upgrade would provide better performance than the perfectly timed/ratio'd everything on the car already? of anything it would be a major downgrade haha.
If I had one, which meant i had all the money in the world, I'd put 2 giant GTX Turbos in it, and a fully built transmission/drivetrain to cope and make a 2000awhp monster that no street car could ever touch, in acceleration, aerodynamics, top speed, anything; and end all of these Modded GTR vs Stock Veyron arguments once and for all, by leveling the playing field with a modded Veyron
In theory... hahaha
lol this thread makes me laugh. Obviously there are things you can do to increase horsepower... but why bother. the fuel tank would last only a few minutes.. the tires would burst and they are michelin PAX tires that are 14.5 inches wide and requires you to ship the vehicle to france to replace. You have to realize VW made the car 1001hp because any more would be dangerous and stupid...
Things holding the veyron back....
1. Exhaust.. The vehicle is a street vehicle that requires certain noise levels to be legal AKA Restrictions...
2. The turbos are actually quite small. Upgrading these would surely give you more power... But good luck fueling the engine.... the pumps on the veyron already pump more then 5 times the fuel of a standard fuel pump...
3.The tune on the veyron is designed to be safe enough for anyone to drive... A re map would be crazyyy. But would yield power gains... (good luck ruining the transmission..)
Only reasons VW didn't do these things stock...
1.The transmission already has problems dealing with 1001hp.
2.It has to be street legal.
3.People would die.
Use your heads... Oh and to the person that said only special mechanics have the ability to work on the engine.. Funny, I thought almost every VW dealer had a tech able to work on the W8... W8x2+4 Turbos = Veyron (veyron has a more complicated cooling system, not really though)
w16 mods completely plausible... but if someone spends that much on a Veyron why would they mess with it? Its awesome out of the box.. I would never mod one
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
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
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.
All I can think of when I see all this comments is that many people get their hands full when driving a 300+hp car and yet it takes a while to master it and actually use all the power that the car has to offer
Now with a car pushing 1000hp and meant to be driven on the street, when and where would you be able to really push it up there and actually master those thousand horses
Even at the track, for how long would you be able to stay on the throttle that would require more power than it comes stock with? I think this are some of the reasons that we don't see modified veyrons as much as we would like but its understandable
