2001 Bugatti 16/4 Veyron Concept

 A lot has changed since bugatti went bankrupt in 1995. Now, with help from Volkswagen & 10 years after producing their last vehicle, bugatti have announced they will produce the 16/4 in 2003. The newest supercar is aptly named after its’ innovative engine design. The new W16, is basically two v8’s grafted at the base 90 degrees to one another. This design allows for a compact 16 cylinder design-4 rows of 4 cylinders. For additional power, 4 exhaust turbochargers have been added.
