The Veyron is considered a "hypercar" due to its impressive specifications and its ability to surpass any supercar's performance.
The 16.4 was the first car in the Veyron model range. It was based on the 1999 Bentley Hunaudières Concept and the Bugatti Chiron 18.3, the latter of which was presented a year later at the Frankfurt Motors Show.
2000 also saw the Veyron EB 18.4, which was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show. Both of these concept vehicles strongly influenced the production model first built in 2005.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4's production ceased in 2011.
Need for Speed: ProStreet
The Veyron 16.4 appears in the downloadable Booster Pack released for Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 3 vehicle.
The car cannot be modified in any manner except for vinyl and paint customisation. It is a well performing car for Speed Challenge events due to its high top speed but can be hard to control whilst at high speed.
Need for Speed: Undercover
It is featured in the Job event Lightspeed. Contrary to its previous appearance, it can be modified with performance upgrades. The Veyron seems to be significantly slower in stock form than in real life but it is by far the most powerful tier 1 car.
