Bugatti Galibier Development Stalled

When you are Bugatti, good is not good enough until someone calls your ideas crazy. For some, 800hp is more than sufficient for an executive sedan. However, this is not nearly exceptional enough for Bugatti and it’s new Galibier executive sedan. reports that Bugatti boss Wolfgang Durheimer has halted the new Galibier because it is not an “argument stopper.” In order for him to be pleased with the car being launched, it must pack much more than the “anemic 800hp” figure. I expect that after he made this proclamation he let out a maniacal laugh and left the room to get back to his lair inside a volcano. We shall see just what the mad scientists at Bugatti cook up to please Wolfgang enough to release the Galibier to Bugatti’s billionaire clientele.


The 2010 Hennessey Z700 rocks!

hennessey_z700_back_0 has the goods on the new 2010 Hennesey Z700.

If your mantra is “Too much horsepower is never enough” Hennessey Performance Engineering has answered your call. This is especially true if you are the owner of a 2010 Chevy Corvette ZR1. If you’re thinking — ‘Isn’t the 2010 Corvette ZR1 already the fastest and most powerful production Vette ever with 638 hp and supercar performance?’ — you are correct. But Hennessey believes that everyone should have an opportunity to step their ride up to the next level. Porsche 911 owners can purchase the GT3 RS, Dodge Viper drivers can grab the Viper ACR and now Corvette ZR1 enthusiasts can move up to the Hennessey Z700.

The Hennessey Z700 is dyno tuned to 705 bhp and 717 lb-ft of torque with the help of a new supercharger, upgraded exhaust and reworked air induction systems. The 2010 Corvette ZR1 is then put on a serious diet with the biggest reduction coming via the replacement of stock rims with ultra-lightweight carbon fiber wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires (which sheds 60 pounds). A Z-Aero carbon fiber front splitter, canards and rear spoiler add over 300 pounds of downforce. You also get a revised interior that includes carbon fiber seats along with an Alcantara steering wheel and shift knob.
