After having been launched to the world's media and customers at the end of 2005, production of 1001 hp Bugatti Veyron has taken up “full throttle” at the company's factory, the “Atelier”, in Molsheim, near Strasbourg, in France. It is there where the car is assembled by a group of 20 highly specialized technicians. In teams of five they follow the car from the beginning until the end of built. They are fully in charge from the moment the engine is rolled into the assembly hall on a trolley until the finished car rolls out of the Atelier under its own steam and on its proper wheels.
The Bugatti Veyron is an impressive platform of top end automotive technology and - loyal to Bugatti's heritage “nothing is too expensive, nothing is too beautiful” - only the best parts and materials in the trade are used in the production process. And the Bugatti Veyron is a truly international car. One of the key- and most sophisticated parts, the 7 speed-sequential-DSG - double-clutch-gearbox, is made by motor sport specialists Ricardo in the UK, the unique 16 cylinder-8.0-litre-engine comes from the Volkswagen engine plant in Salzgitter in Germany.
