Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean Bugatti: The Latest Bugatti Legends Car Is a Voiture Noir

About a month ago in Pebble Beach, Bugatti pulled the silks from their first limited edition Veyron of the Bugatti Legends series, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille.  That bright blue Veyron paid homage to the 24 Hours of LeMans winning Bugatti test driver of the same name. Yesterday (or was it earlier today? Stupid time zones!), the second Veyron of the Legends series made its first appearance.  This one is...

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Jean-Pierre Wimille to Debut at Pebble Beach

Bugatti is big on limited edition versions of the Veyron.  I’m okay with that since they’re, more often than not, pretty cool variations on the car, albeit a bit gaudy on occasion (I’m looking at you Veyron L’Or Blanc).  Their latest limited Veyron is actually a series of limited Veyrons, Les Légendes de Bugatti, which pay homage to six key figures from the annals of Bugatti’s history. The first of the...

Horsepower to Reindeer Power Conversion

Back for the holidays is the TickTickVroom.com exclusive Horsepower to Reindeer Power conversion. Of all the methods of transport that exist, it must be argued that Santa Claus’s sleigh and eight flying reindeer rank among the coolest and fastest out there (He does make it around the world in one night including several stops, after all).  So, with Christmas and Santa’s annual trek coming up on Wednesday, it got me...
