The Bugatti Veyron is a mid-engined sports car that was developed and manufactured in Molsheim, France, by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., a division of the Volkswagen Group. It was first shown to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005 and quickly became one of the most iconic and sought-after supercars in the world.
The Veyron was named after Pierre Veyron, a Bugatti development engineer and test driver who won the 1939 24 Hours of Le Mans race while driving for the company. It was powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine that produced 1,001 horsepower and 922 pound-feet of torque, and it had a top speed of 253.8 mph, making it the fastest production car in the world at the time.
In addition to its impressive performance, the Veyron was also known for its advanced technology and luxurious features. It featured an all-wheel drive system, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, as well as a number of comfort and convenience features such as air conditioning and a premium sound system.
The Bugatti Veyron was produced in a number of different variants, including the Veyron 16.4, the Veyron Super Sport, and the Veyron Grand Sport. It was in production until 2015, and a total of 450 Veyrons were produced during its 10-year run. The Veyron remains one of the most iconic and influential supercars of all time.
