Think the Bugatti Veyon is too quiet? Wait until you hear this.
When it launched in 2005, the Bugatti Veyron set new standards for hypercars. Power was provided by an 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W16 engine producing 987 horsepower in the original Veyron 16.4 and 1,184 horsepower in the Veyron Super Sport. Modern hypercars with power ratings approaching 1,000 horsepower such as the Ferrari SF90 Stradale are common today, but this level of power in a road car was unheard of back in 2005.
Despite being phenomenally fast, the Veyron was surprisingly comfortable and refined to drive, making it ideal for grand touring. But for some people, the Bugatti Veyron doesn't sound as savage as they would like. Blame increasingly strict noise and emissions regulations. Of Course.
Houston Crosta from YouTube channel Royalty Exotic Cars wanted to make his cherished Veyron sound louder, so he enlisted Ryft to engineer and develop the world's first Bugatti Veyron titanium exhaust. While the stock exhaust pipes weigh 42 pounds, the Ryft's exhaust only weighs nine pounds. Ryft removed the heavy resonators but kept the catalytic converters in place to keep the Veyron road legal. In total, the Bugatti Veyron has six catalytic converters, including one for each turbocharger and two larger ones.
Once installed, Crosta tests his modified red Veyron out on the road to do a sound test. With less restrictions muting the sound, the customized Veyron sounds ear-shatteringly epic. This is exactly what the Bugatti Veyron should sound like.
With the new titanium exhaust installed, Royalty Exotic Cars expects the Veyron's power to increase to around 10 to 15 percent. Unfortunately, we don't know if these claims are true yet because the team hasn't managed to do a successful dyno test. But this isn't the first time Royalty Exotic Cars has modified the Veyron. Remember when the team converted the Veyron from all-wheel-drive to rear-wheel-drive?
