      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.

      Never criticize someone's MkII until you drive a mile in it. Then when you do your a mile away and they have no car.

      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.

      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.

      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.

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

      What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?
      exactly..i guess these ppl on here are really stupid...you could wire in a stand alone computer and throw 4 garrett gt 42's on it...or something of the sort

      lol Teapot calling the kettle black. "Activating" the turbos? rofl. The second key lowers the car and locks the rear spoiler shut. Its not "how you get 1000 hp", it is how you get the aerodynamics to achieve the maximum speed.

      Doesn't anyone watch top gear anymore? When Jeremy Clarkson was racing the Bugatti against James and Richard, you can see a few parts where the car clearly was producing 1000 hp. (the gauge on the dash.)
      They also explain about the second key in a later episode.

      the second key changes the ecu programming.. to make things easy. everyone can consider it ""chipping"" the car. it changes the timing and fueling tables. none of that activating the other 2 turbos. all 4 turbos are spoolin all the time.

      I just had to laugh at this. Honestly? You DO need 8 liters to make 1000hp RELIABILY. And this way its not some high strung, barely-street-drivable race engine (like your 2.0L example would be)

      x2
      we are talking about a car that can go 250mph and still sound like your cruising on the highway. In your 1000hp 2.0 i can promise you that you would be wearing ear plugs while driving it. it also would do **** for daily driving. you would constantly be running into issues. idk why im even bothering to make these points...
      all and all, the veyron is an amazing piece of machinery. a car that is able to put out 1000hp reliably on a daily basis while still having the comfort and luxury of a bugatti is a great accomplishment
      but feel free to tell bugatti how to build a better 1000hp engine [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
