Bugatti Veyron and Maybach Coupe by FAB Design

FAB Design Sketch for Bugatti Veyron and Maybach

Okay, we know you are confused with the title of our article here, so we suggest you to keep reading this post. The reason of the confusion is the Maybach, not the Bugatti Veyron. We all know that Maybach is the luxury division of Mercedes-Benz and the three-pointed German automaker decided to end the Maybach brand. So, why FAB Design tuning in the vehicle that no longer exist?

Actually, Mercedes stills continues the very last production of Maybach which means that the Swiss tuning house has its last chance to customize which soon to be rare vehicle. Fro the Bugatti Veyron, honestly, we haven’t got any tuning house or aftermarket specialist that has the courage to pimp out the supercar.

We got the sketches made by FAB Design from autoevolution.com and the tuning project will be using the Bugatti Veyron and the Xenatech Maybach 57S Coupe. If Xenatch sounds strange to you, that is because Xenatech is the company which altered the Maybach 57 into a coupe.

Before Mercedes stops the production of Maybach, there were 8 units and three of them still in the form of unfinished project. There is big possibility that FAB Design might be bought the remaining three unfinished Maybach and tuning them into fabulous vehicles. Can’t wait to see the real-life result from this sketch? Our aforementioned source predicted that the Bugatti Veyron and Maybach version of FAB Design will be ready at 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Speed Bump Issue for Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron speed bump issue

Take a good look at the two photos that we brought you, folks. Can you imagine how you would feel if you own Bugatti Veyron and with all the mighty, glory and exclusivity power, the supercar has to give up with one enemy – speed bumps. Yup… it could be embarrassing if you driving one of the fastest and expensive supercars and have to drive extra careful once you have to go through speed bumps.

The speed bump issue for supercars like the one that happens to Bugatti Veyron, can be resolved by giving noselift system from aftermarket developments. But perhaps, the anonymous owner of the Veyron supercar is kind of shy – or could it be the high dignity? – to custom his supercar. Come on…. It’s Bugatti Veyron and the ultimate supercar needs noselift custom job? Surely it brings down the high class look, eh?

Anyway, the photos are courtesy of Supercars in Hyderabad and clearly, the photos are some kind of warning for other supercars with lower nose that custom noselift job is necessary. Yes, the speed bump might not seem threatening for ordinary cars, but for Bugatti Veyron, the supercar is really having difficulties to pass it through without scratch the lower nose.

According to autoevolution.com, the setting of this embarrassing driving moment of speed bump issue was at India where Bugatti Veyron is having some kind of showcasing driving across the country. To give you clear picture, the standard ground clearance for Veyron supercar is 12.4cm or around 4.9-inches. So, what’s the deal of owning Bugatti Veyron supercar if you can’t get through speed bump?

Bugatti Veyron Ettore Concept

Bugatti Ettore

Before you get excited and run all over the room, please notice that what you see is the rendering image of Bugatti Veyron Ettore. Yes, it is very unusual name, but this is what happen when Bugatti decided to hold on the next-gen of the luxury supercar. Should we blame the Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer for this? Probably like this, but let’s see the positive side of this delayed project, shall we?

The rendering image of Bugatti Veyron Ettore concept was proposed by designer Tamas Jakus. The naming for this supposed  to-be successor of Veyron luxury supercar is inspired by Ettore Arco Isidoro Bugatti who is the founder of the Bugatti automaker company. So, what is the Veyron Ettore concept exactly? A luxury supercar, or luxury saloon supercar?

Bugatti Ettore convertible

We can’t describe as saloon as the rendering image on the Bugatti Veyron Ettore concept is more like “ordinary” luxury supercar. Tamas Jakus also created the convertible model as well besides the coupe. According to autoevolution.com, the Veyron Ettore concept carries a lighter, sleeker, and more supercar-oriented if we compare it to the basic model of Veyron.

What about the engine? Unfortunately, Tamas Jakus  only working on the overall design, not the engine. But we predict, if Bugatti Veyron Ettore concept does exist, it would be powered by none other than the W12 engine, just like the usual powerplant on the Bugatti line-up models.

Follow Up News About Bugatti Galibier

Bugatti Galibier concept

We really have bad feelings about this one because honestly, we have built some expectations and obviously can’t wait to see the production version of the Bugatti Galibier. That is right… the mysterious four-door luxury sedan Bugatti will ever made. There has been rumors that the Bugatti execs want the Galibier to be back to drawing board, make everything from scratch, and using different engine types. We don’t quite know what happen, but it seems like the project on the Galibier luxury four-door sedan has been going on and off, on and off, and we can’t even tell you how the end will look like.

The Bugatti CEO – Durheimer trusted both his customers and his engineers. The engineers think that the Galibier is doable, so they created the prototype and asked some of Veyron’s owners to give some kind of test drive for the luxury four-door sedan. The result was pretty disappointing as the Veyron’s owners stated that the prototype was far from what they have expected.

Durheimer is really aware – and hopefully sober – that his decision to postpone (again) the Bugatti Galibier luxury four-door sedan will disappoint many people. But if he wants the Galibier to be one the Bugatti’s best creations in the form of luxury four-door sedan, then it may take some times to see the production version dubbed as “Royale”. The name itself refers to luxury, don’t you think? Galibier was expected to be ready next year, but things have changed and much likely the luxury four-door sedan will hit the road in 2015. Let’s hope nothing happen between now and the 2015. Well, good things are happen for those who are willing to wait, right?
