Difference between Lamborghini and Bugatti

The advent of cars and especially luxury automobiles has revolutionized human transportation and travel. These days, although public transportation is available practically anywhere, privately owned cars are now perceived as a necessity in many parts of the world. For many people, it provides a means of transportation without the hassle of uncomfortable crowds and of spending time waiting for other people, as in the case of public vehicles such as buses and trains; these days, many countries have thriving automobile production companies to address the needs of the people in terms of privately-owned transportation means.

Italy and France are two nations that belong to the top ten countries in car production. Lamborghini and Bugatti, two major automobile manufacturers belong to these two nations respectively. Let’s take a look at their profiles.

History

Ferruccio Lamborghini, an Italian industrialist, founded the company that is now famed for many of its sleek and luxurious sport cars. The company was established in 1963 in an Italian town called Sant’Agata Bolognese, when he was 47 years old. Initially he aimed to surpass rival Ferrari, by coming up with a grand tourer of style and quality. For awhile Lamborghini achieved success, but later on had to be sold to US car manufacturer Chrysler because of bankruptcy. Today, the German car manufacturer Audi AG—originally known for its production of Volkswagen—owns Lamborghini.

Bugatti was founded in Molsheim, France by an Italian automobile designer named Ettore Bugatti in the year 1909. Like Lamborghini, the company’s aim was to create some of the most luxurious cars in the world. Also like Lamborghini, after experiencing bouts of financial crisis, Bugatti has been slowly revived and now belongs in the capable hands of what is known to be the Volkswagen group (a group which consists Lamborghini, Bugatti, Audi and Bentley).

Models

Amongst the produced Lamborghini cars, the fastest would be the Le Mans version of a model called Murcielago R-GT, which has speed that can reach up to 370 hours per kilometer. Next to this is the Murcielago LP640, which has been reported to have a speed up to 340 kilometers per hour. It is priced at $430,000, and is famed for its smoothly rounded design.

The Bugatti Veyron used to be known and famed as the world’s fastest car, with 250 miles per hour (in comparison, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 can only reach 211 miles per hour); however today it ranks only as the second speediest car, with the SSC Ultimate Aero beating it with a speed of 257 miles per hour.

Distinction and Famous Drivers

The very first Lamborghini 350GTV was created in 1963 and despite Ferruccio Lamborghini being dissatisfied with it, it was met with enthusiasm from the public.

Christophe Bouchut, a renowned French race driver, drove a MurcielagoR-GT and won the FIA GT Championship in 1996.

One of the first Bugatti models was the Type 35 which was introduced in 1924 and was famed to be the most successful racing cars of its time. These days, the Bugatti Veyron is a favorite amongst racers.

Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher once owned a Bugatti, but switched to Ferrari during the latter parts of his career.

Summary

  • Both underwent financial crises and are now being sustained under the Volkswagen group.

The 987hp baggati is rated at the wheels. not the crank ****.It's 1,000 hp. and while no doubt it's the fastest car in a straight line there's just no way it could outperform the Lambo or porsche in the curves. the damn thing is just waaayyy too heavy

why people are being crazy about Bugatti veyron.

that ugly , poorly aerodynamic car only has horsepower at outraged price.

that machine will be dead after 15 minutes even with full tank.it is just a piece of show.

while Lamborghini are and will always be the one ruling the world with power, looks to die for.
