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 supercars 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.

The Veyron 16.4 appears in the Booster Pack DLC 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.

The Veyron 16.4 appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a Tier 1 vehicle with a $375,000 price tag. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 13.5.

The Veyron in both titles can reach a high top speed and accelerates quickly. It can be tricky in corners due to its high kerb weight.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as an SCPD Special Response Unit. The cop Veyron 16.4 can be unlocked by the player upon earning 930,240 bounty in the cop career.
