The Bugatti Veyron's birth was not an easy one, that it came to be because one day Volkswagen tsar Ferdinand Piech had a dream to provide the world with a car that had 1000bhp, cost one million euros and could do over 400km/h (250mph). To begin with the brief seemed impossible but in Piech's mind, not something that couldn't happen.
The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is a mid-engined grand touring car, designed & developed by the Volkswagen Group & manufactured in Molsheim, France by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
