This past week, the Swedish health resort of Ronneby was the meeting point for 35 historic Bugatti automobiles, taking part in the International Bugatti Rally which then ran through southern Sweden this year. Participants included teams from England, Sweden, Italy, France, Holland, and Germany.
Five days long – June 15th – 20th, 2003 – teams had to negotiate selected day-routes that lead from Ronneby through the lovely “garden landscape” of South Sweden.
When the rally participants arrived at the Bugatti-sponsored event in Karlskrona, they received a big surprise. Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. presented its gray two-tone study of the Veyron 16.4*)., and waiting for them in front of the Marine museum was this extraordinary high performance sports car itself.
This was the first time that the Veyron 16.4 was presented in Sweden and also the first time that many of the participants had the chance to see the study done on what is widely considered to be the finest sports car of all time. Because the Veyron 16.4 is now ready for series production, the appearance in Sweden will be one of the last for the study.

The values were calculated using the prescribed measurement method (§ 2, numbers 5, 6, 6 per car energy labeling ordinance in its current version).CO2 emissions, which result from the production and provision of fuel or other energy sources are not taken into account in the determination of CO2 emissions pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC. The figures do not refer to a specific vehicle and are not part of the offer, but only serve the purpose of comparing different vehicle types. The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a vehicle not only depend on the efficient utilization of the fuel by the vehicle, but also on driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Notice pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC of each current valid version: For more information on official fuel consumption and the specific official CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be acquired from the "Guide for Fuel Economy, CO2 Emissions and Power Consumption of New Passenger Cars" available at all sales outlets and at DAT German Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, D-73760 Ostfildern – available free of charge or at www.dat.de. Efficiency classes of vehicles are evaluated in terms of CO2 emissions by means of the vehicle's empty weight. Vehicles that correspond to the average are classified as D. Vehicles that are better are graded with A+, A, B or C. Vehicles that are worse than the average are given an E, F or G.
