Fully Stripped Bugatti Veyron Prepares for Carbon Panels and 1,600 HP Tuning by Oakley Design

When it comes to supercars and hypercars, the effects of aging are simpler than in the case of humans. Allow us to elaborate using the Bugatti Veyron as an example.

Once the last examples of the machine reach their owners, and the mothership declares the end of production, you get to see more and more of the now-aged early examples, which also pack less power, racing against contemporary machines.

For instance, earlier this month, we've seen more Bugatti Veyron vs [insert your hypercar/tuned car here] videos than we would've wished. Sure, three of them featured the same car, namely the Dutchbugs Veyron, but this doesn't change the conclusion.

Unlike in the case of human beings, though, you can make a car younger on a longer term, and this is what's going to happen with the Veyron we have here.

More importantly, now that production has ended, customers have a bit more freedom in heading over to a tuner and boosting their Veyrons.

Sure, Bugatti has launched a dedicated care program for all Veyron owners, but this doesn't mean some of them aren't sick of the clips we mentioned above.

As a result, they will turn their Veyrons into even faster contraptions. The Veyron we're looking at is being handled by Oakley Design.

The Bugatti was recently strapped to a dyno, with the W16 delivering a cheering 988 hp and 922 lb-ft (1,250 Nm) of torque. This will jump to 1,600 hp once the project is complete, so Koenigsegg people have reasons to cringe.

As for the naked splendor of the machine, you can't expect the engine compartment to be 100 percent clean after years of hooning, so we like what we see.

Oh, and getting to see the fully stripped cabin brings us a whole new, almost sexual, perspective on the Chiron's predecessor.

See all those gaps? They'll be fitted with carbon panels. As for the styling, you can see this in the rendering released by the tuner. We'll just stick to "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and won't comment on this part of the job.

It would be easy to dismiss the color combo, for instance, but you can't do that when these people are ready to gift the Veyron with wind tunnel-developed carbon panels.
