      weight reduction is silly unless it's a track car.

      LOL, a person who can't see the benifits of weight reduction even for a daily driver is just plain blind. Weight reduction equals quicker car, better mpg yada yada yada...it is possible to shed pounds from overweight cars (Veyron +4000lbs) and get substantial benifits...read this thread from the TT forum about shedding pounds and not losing any of the benifits of the car. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3782261 post over there and fill people in as to why it is stupid to reduce the weight of a DD.

      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.

      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?


      The bumper sticker on my friends car adds like 250 horses at least...

      I'm still waiting for an answer on the whole weight thing of the E36...or any M3. I thought there was enthusiasts in here...

      why do they void your warranty when they already give the second key to you in the first place?

      Talk about privacy to owning a car...ftw./

      in the realm of mods for the veyron, hennessy is actually developing an exhaust system upgrade. not much in the way of details on their website, but theres a link for it.

      I suspect it'd be catastrophic. Something like the tires failing or body panels pulling off, etc.

      Anyway, if I had one and could mod it, I'd get a personalized license plate and call it perfect.

      they made a lightweight version... they were so anal about saving weight that they didn't even put paint on the car... they polished the aluminum

      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

      i'd drop in a k&n and swiss cheese the airbox. roll the fenders and put spacers to make it have some poke. i'll shave the front bumper and emblems. and rust the hood/trunk.

      Custom ss exaust manis. Gt3788's full ti exaust, no cats ect. Figure out a way to get a bigger fuel tank, fuel pump, injectors. Port polish? Water/meth? Silly things like that. All things to go faster. Maybe some aero bits. Splitter, carbon fiber naturally.

      Orrr maybe try and not die when I actually see one for the first time in person. God I love that car.

      Damn what a car.

      I couldn't tell you exactly how I would do it but I would squeeze some more ponies from that monster.

      They are totally holding back with the 1000hp tune.
      At 8 liters that engine is easily capable of 2000 street HP.

      Next on the list would be a serious diet.
      A lot of people have said that it only weighs 4100 and some change.
      However if you dig a little deeper you will find that those numbers are it's claimed DRY weight.
      By the time you add all the fluids it tips the scales at more than 4600lbs
      And this is after Bugatti shaved more than 450 Lbs from the early models.

      So to say that this car could benifit from a little diet would be a serious understatement.

      I know that losing the weight and and bumping the Hp would lead to other problems in such a well tuned, well balanced car
      But I am sure if I had the dollars to buy one and then proceed to mod it then I could find the right people help tune it.

      with that kind of cash i dont think you mod the car. i think you make your own track or mod the streets in your town.

      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.

      OK ether you are very gullible, or just stupid. It is against the law to void the warranty if the product has not been mis-used. So if you take your car in and they tell you that you used your 'second key' (there is only one key for the car) so they wont fix it you can sue them and then you and your lawyer can both have a Bugatti. and your 'tracking system' is bs too. yes the cars ecu knows how fast you have been going it does not sent the info to the dealer that would be illegal too. FYI.

      you sir dont know much about this car do you?

      there are 2 keys one for the main iginition which only uses i believe two turbos and gives xxxx hp out then on the side of the seat by the driver door sill there is a second key hole where u put your SECOND key and this activates some more turbos lowers it a little does some transformer ****. thats how u get w/e 1000 hp. look up ur info before giving out bs.

      another thing,8 litre motor with only 1000hp.wtf...u dont need an 8 ltr to make 1000hp....you could technically do that with a 2 ltr...so i personally think this car is a rip off..**** a veyron
