Pictures Gallery of » Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Gets a Rubdown
In today’s world, it seems that almost any topic is open for debate. While I was gathering facts for this article, I was quite surprised to find some of the issues I thought were settled are actually still being openly discussed.
It seems like new information is discovered about something every day. And the topic of Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is no exception. Keep reading to get more fresh news about Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is the definition of automotive exclusivity. Just 46 examples of the 268-mph-capable Super Sport were built, and only two have made it to our shores, including the Carbon Blue 1200-hp rocket you see here. While all Veyrons have officially been sold, this pre-production example — which has seen 2000 miles at the hands of ham-fisted journalists — will be put up for sale to a qualified buyer soon. (Wonder if they’re going to mention the ham-fisted journalists?)
When we arrived on a sunny hump day at Meguiar’s HQ, the über Veyron was being washed with nothing more than de-ionized water and Meguiar’s car wash soap. We were a bit skeptical – its staggeringly priced, $400,000 Carbon Blue livery looked great already. How could it look any better? Hard work seemed to be the answer. Meguiar’s had a team of four working four hours straight cleaning and detailing the car before turning it back over to Bugatti later that afternoon. According to Meguiar’s, the company uses a five-step process on every car, even one that has a carbon-fiber finish and costs more than a five-bedroom house.
The first step is simple. Meguiar’s calls it washing (gee, wonder how they came up with that one). The car is washed and then dried with microfiber towels to remove dirt, bugs, and road grime. In this case, the Veyron was washed with de-ionized water (to prevent mineral spotting) and Meguiar’s branded soap. (If you’re washing at home and can’t find de-ionized water, distilled water should achieve the same results.) Meguiar’s says it’s important to use specialized car wash soap instead of, say, dishwashing soap, which is designed to strip grease. On a car, it’ll strip down the wax layer on the finish – not something you want to do.
The next step is what Meguiar’s calls paint cleaning, which consists of claying the surface of the car to remove grime that’s bonded to the clear coat. It also helps clear up slight defects below the paint surface, such as minor scratches from keys.
