The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is one of the fastest production cars to date from Bugatti. The "16.4" refers to the 16 cylinder W engine crafted from the combination of two V8 engines as well as the additional 4 turbochargers.

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.
