Partner/Operator - 2012 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport Chassis no. VF9SG25243M795038 * Delivered new to Switzerland * Circa 2,495 km from new * Striking Chocolate Brown over Cognac Livery * Immaculate condition with minimal signs of use * The ultimate evolution of the Veyron To say that the Bugatti Veyron caused a sensation when it arrived in 2005 would be a gross understatement; for here was a car that didn't just rewrite the supercar rulebook so much as tear it up and start afresh. All the more remarkable was the fact that the Veyron was the dream of one man: Ferdinand Piech, CEO of the Volkswagen Group, which had acquired the Bugatti brand in 1998. Piech's ambition was to create a c ar that had 1,000 horsepower at its disposal, could exceed 400km/h (250mph), and cost 1 million. Turning Piech's dream into a reality would prove to be an immensely difficult undertaking, even for a company with Volkswagen's technological resources, and the result would not see the light of day for another seven years. Designed by ItalDesign boss Giorgetto Giugiaro, th e first concept car the EB118 was displayed at the Paris Auto Show in 1998, featuring permanent all-wheel drive and a Volkswagen-designed W18 engine. A handful of variations on the theme were displayed at international motor shows over the course of the next few years before the concept finally c rystallized in 2000 in the form of the Veyron EB 16.4. The latter was styled at VW by Hartmut Warku and featured an engine with 16 cylinders and four turbochargers hence the '16.4' designation. It was named after Bugatti development engineer and racing driver, Pierre Veyron, who together with co-driver Jean-Pierre Wimille, had won the 1939 Le Mans 24-Hour race for the French manufacturer. But this was far from the end of the development process, and it would take another five years and an extensive shake-up of the project's management and engineering teams before production could begin, by which time an incredible 95% of components had been either changed or redesigned. Effectively two narrow-angle 4 liter V8 engines sharing a common crankcase, the 8.0 liter W16 - just - met Piech's requirements, producing a maximum output of 1,001PS (987bhp) and 922ft/lb of torque, figures that would embarrass a current Formula 1 car. With a Curb weight of 1,888kg (4,162lb) the Veyron had a staggering Power to weight ratio of 523bhp per ton. Tasked with transmitting this formidable force to the ground was a permanent four-wheel-drive, dual-clutch transmission system incorporating a seven-speed paddle-shift semi-automatic gearbox, the latter built by the British company, Ricardo, while to accommodate the Veyron's phenomenal top speed Michelin designed special run-flat PAX Tires. Piech had specified a maximum velocity of 250mph and the Veyron did not disappoint, with more than one tester Top Gear 's James May included - exceeding the target by a few miles per hour. To maintain stability at such high speeds, the Veyron has a few aerodynamic tricks up its sleeve, a hydraulic system lowering the car at around 140mph, at which speed the rear wing deploys, increasing downforce. But if the Veyron driver wishes to exceed 213mph (343km/h), he or she needs to select Top Speed Mode (from rest) before joining what is a very exclusive club indeed. Jeremy Clarkson, reviewing the Veyron for The Times : 'In a drag race, you could let the McLaren (F1) get to 120mph before setting off in the Veyron. And you'd still get to 200mph first. The Bugatti is way, way faster than anything else the roads have seen.' Yet despite its breathtaking performance, the Veyron contrived to be surprisingly docile at 'sensible' speeds. 'Bugatti says the Veyron is as easy to drive as a Bentley, and they're not exaggerating,' declared Autocar . 'Immediately you notice how smoothly weighted the steering is, and how calm the ride is.' In a market sector many of whose protagonists can only be Described as a 'Hardcore ', the Veyron contrived to be a remarkably Civilized conveyance. 'When you climb aboard the Bugatti Veyron there are no particular physical contortions required of you by the world's fastest car, as there are in so many so-called supercars,' observed Autocar describing 'the most exquisite car cabin on earth.' The latter was found to be more than generously spacious for a two-seat mid-engined car, while in terms of interior equipment there was virtually no limit to what the, necessarily wealthy, Veyron customer could specify. Restricted rearward visibility is a frequent bugbear of mid-engined supercars, a problem the Veyron dealt with by means of a reversing camera. In 2009, an open version of the Veyron the Grand Sport was announced, featuring a removable roof panel and 'emergency' soft-top. The following year Bugatti released the ultimate Veyron - the Super Sport - which came with 1,200bhp, 1,100ft/lb of torque, and revised aerodynamics. Only 30 were made, the very last of these truly fabulous cars being that offered here. An open version - the Grands Vitesse - was introduced in 2012. The SSC Ultimate Aero had taken the Veyron's title of 'World's Fastest Car' in 2007, but the Super Sport would soon put the upstart American manufacturer in its place. The redoubtable James May achieved a top speed of 259.49mph (417.61km/h) on 4th July 2010, and later that same day Bugatti test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel set a new mean best mark of 267.856mph (431.072km/h) at Volkswagen's test track near Wolfsburg in Germany. This had been achieved by deactivating the Super Sport's electronic limiter, which restricts top speed to 'only' 258mph (415km/h), causing some to question the figure's validity. Eventually, the Guinness Book of Records decided that the mark should stand. By the time Veyron production ceased in 2015, Bugatti had built only 450 of these quite extraordinary cars. As revealed by a plate placed under the hood, the spectacular Veyron offered here is the 38th Super Sport specification model to have left the state-of-the-art Bugatti plant in Molsheim, France. Upon completion, this remarkable vehicle was delivered new to a very lucky individual in Switzerland. Any Veyron is truly a sight to behold, and this example is no exception with its striking exterior color combination of chocolate brown with black trim accents. The interior is equally dazzling with exquisite cognac-colored and brown hides and luxurious fabrics covering nearly every surface within. More recently, the Bugatti entered a prominent, Dubai based individual's collection of supercars. I t is safe to say that the vehicle has lived a pampered life and presents as near to factory original condition as possible. As is standard with Bugattis of this vintage, the car was not built to a certain geographical specification, so is considered a 'World Car '. The Super Sport is truly a landmark automobile and will surely continue to be The Desired entity in the eyes of collectors and enthusiasts across the world. Now is the opportunity to obtain a stand out example of the Veyron's final, fully developed form.
Eddie Tobias Jr.2 years agoI found them on line and called to schedule a test drive . No hassle, no pressure, a very friendly atmosphere. Purchased a QX56 two days after the test drive. Cody York and the rest of the sales team were very professional, I highly recommend Crave, you won't be disappointed.
Thomas3 years agoWorking with Cody York was a great experience. He provided valueable insights and made purchasing the California a wonderful experience. It was painless! Facility was spotless. Thanks Cody, you ROCK! Will definitely purchase future vehicles through Cody.
Brantmn3 years agoBought a 2003 996 Turbo X50 from Karl and the car was exactly as described! Karl was totally helpful AFTER the sale with some other historical detail on this rare vehicle. It is rare to have such attention from any dealer. I look forward to working with Crave again!
Greg Jardine3 years agoKarl Stomberg and Cody York over at Crave Luxury in The Woodlands are nothing short of TOP SHELF. If you're considering buying a High End Car, make sure you give them a call FIRST. I've recently purchased my 2nd Lamborghini from Crave Luxury in the span of 18 months. Getting to this dealership and home is a 6-7 hour round trip drive for me and still, it's totally worth the trip. My buying experience was beyond amazing 2X in a row. Every member of the staff is knowledgeable and super friendly. When you walk in to look (or buy), you know they want you there and you are treated as such. I wish more places could get the car-buying-experience right like they do here. I picked up my most recent Lamborghini on the night of 11/25/2015 which happens to be the day before Thanksgiving. Due to rush-hour/holiday traffic in Dallas, I was running behind schedule and they kept the dealership open after hours to accommodate my schedule. Best car buying experience I have ever had and I'll be back for Lamborghini #3 next year.
Tim Hellman3 years agoWorked with Cody York on purchasing a 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS. We did a Facetime walk through going over the car while it was on the lift and back again on the ground. Being 600 miles from their dealership this was very helpful. The car was pretty much everything as described. I would recommend using them in looking for or consigning your next car!
Eric H3 years agoI recently purchased a very highly optioned 2012 Porsche Carrera 911s from the guys at Crave. The car has 3,000 original miles and looks like new, in every way. I literally saw the car, drove it, and after some surprisingly easy negotiating, bought it that day. This car is typical of most of the vehicles Crave sells. They have a real talent for stocking very high end, low mile vehicles. You could eat off any vehicle in their show room. My impression is that they move their inventory pretty quickly, so if you like it, I recommend you buy it before someone else comes along.
RJ Rodriguez3 years agoI was surfing the net looking for a Porsche 911 when I came upon a 2013 911 at Crave Luxury Auto and immediately submitted an online request to see the car. Within minutes I recieved an email from Cody York to come down and check it out, we were there the very next day. Looked at the vehicle and fell in love with it, we negociated for a couple of days with Cody until we were comfortable with the price and purchased it. We drove down in a rental and were picked up by Cody at rental company and taken to the dealership to take possession of the vehicle. The professionalism and constant communications with Cody made this purchase easy and seamless. Would definitely recommend Crave Luxury Auto to anyone. Kudos to Cody York for this experience.
F4303 years agoWorked with Cody at Crave and purchased a car from them. Despite this being my first "online" purchase, I never felt as if I was being dismissed or treated differently from anyone walking in the door. Cody walked me through the process in a clear and succinct manner. In my dealings with him, I found him to be hard working and honest. The car was delivered without incident and it was exactly as described. I would buy another car from Crave.
Kayil Crow3 years agoI sent an email requesting information about a car that I was interested. Was answered promptly and with all of questions answered with great detail. When I came to visit, the showroom was amazing and I was pleased with the how I was treated and I did not feel that I was being cheated. Cody York is the Man to talk to if you're interested in buying a car. He will get you exactly what you're looking for and make sure it exceeds your expectations! 5+ stars!!!
Mike Thompson3 years agoI worked with Cody York on sourcing a specific car for me. I wanted an SL63 AMG in a hard color to find. Cody told me not a problem and that he could find that car for me. They required a deposit up front to get the ball rolling which is totally understandable. Less than a week Cody called me and said that my car was here! It was exactly what I was wanting. I rate Crave 5 stars and will be using them in the near future to get my wife in a Ferrari California! Thanks Cody!
jimmy morgan2 years agoI walked in with no appointment. Paul the manager was very thorough, laying out all my options & was very patient while I decided. Never felt any pressure from him at all. Clean establishment, including the restrooms. There's bottled water, comfy furniture, & television to watch while you wait. Definitely coming back again for future car repairs.
stom 95962 years agoThe experience at Crave Luxury was out of this world. As soon as I stepped foot into their amazing garage I was greeted and taken care. Their lead sales associate Cody assisted me and was so genuine when it came to answering any questions I had about any car. I highly recommend doing business with these professionals and will definitely be coming back in the future.
RJ Donnelly2 years agotop notch operation with an incredible fleet of rare and exotic cars. outstanding customer service. they go the extra mile for their customers. I highly recommend.
Richy Orozco2 years agoNice cars and cool people. I recommended this place to two family friends and they both ended up buying cars from Crave. The service is good and they know how to keep their customers happy.
Olena Jurak3 years agoWe bought our H2 in November 2015, it was a wonderful experience, we will definitely go back. Dieter was super, he helped us get the best deal on the trade, we confirmed the trade value with another buyer. We wanted to upgrade from our H3 in order to take our road trips in more comfort, and with more storage space. The car we bought had less then 15k miles on it, great condition, the only thing we have done to it since we bought it was upgrading the entertainment and navigation system. We could not be more happy with our purchase. Comparing to the experiences we've had with other car dealers, new cars and used, it is like night and day. Their inventory was something special, when we are ready to buy our few luxury roadsters we will definitely go back, or call ahead and let them know what we are looking for. Thanks Luxury Auto!
