The Bugatti Veyron 16.4*) is masterfully manufactured in the new Atelier in Molsheim, Alsace.
The new production facility is located near the former Bugatti headquarters at Chateau St. Jean. It was built under the aegis of internationally renowned architect Gunter Henn. Only a short distance away is the simply designed storage building that houses the parts and spare parts supplied by top European manufacturers. The futuristic Atelier workshop has little in common with the completely automated production facilities of today’s automotive industry. The modern, functional building is marked by its elliptical layout, calling to mind the shape that Ettore Bugatti himself favored in his designs – so much so that it is epitomized in the company logo.
In front of the tall window façade that offers a beautiful view of the Vosges Mountains, three workstations are set up on the bright, epoxy-coated floor. Eight carefully selected and highly qualified employees assemble the Veyron piece by piece in this Spartan environment. No more than one or two vehicles per week are produced in the Atelier, each one requiring almost three weeks of careful assembly. The mechanics create the Veyron’s lightweight chassis; the formidable body is assembled; the 736 kW (1,001 HP) engine, four-wheel drive, and brake system provide the car’s basic functionality; the electronic control systems, convenience functions, and sound system disappear beneath the impeccable surface made of the finest leather and uniformly gleaming aluminum elements. For the customer, it is a special treat and unforgettable experience to witness the creation of his very own Veyron here at Molsheim, the venerable birthplace of Bugatti.

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.
