Up Bugatti Veyron - Zymol Royale Wax treatment (56K XXX WARNING!) - 04-11-2007, 02:12 PM

This was the Bugatti that James May had driven to the max on top gear and had therefore racked up a few miles.....

30,000+ to be exact....

*Zymol Royale famous wax costs $13000 each stick!!!!


It became pretty apparent that this car needed some work doing to it as you can see this was upon the first inspection...


The first thing he did was to citrus degrease the car paying special attention to the wheels and tyres which were in quite a bad state inside....

He knew this was going to be hard work as the inner dimensions of the wheel were at least 20" deep and i could not possibly reach all the way in..

They were also quite badly tared..

The cost of a single Bugatti tyre comes in at £5000 although they will sell four for £17000.

They are high speed tyres specifically designed for the Veyron measuring 265-68R 500 A on the front and 365-71 R 540 A on the rear....

They are also run flats....

The tyres also have a specific PAX system fitted ensuring safe handling after dramatic pressure loss...


Next was the wash..

Using the 2 bucket method he then continued to wash the car using zymol sponges...

He then decided this was a good time to start the wheels so using 2 different size brushes started to clean in the grooves of the rims...

There were certain areas that he used a special tar remover that was safe to the wheels but removed all traces inside the rims...

Once washed He sprayed the car off paying particular attention to seals and undercarriage...


Next he decided to clay the car.....

Using a Zymol claybar and clay lube of his own then raise the rear spoiler again so he could get into all the nook and crannies at the rear...

He then started claying the car...

The car needed claying badly...


Now the car was dry and clean it gave him a good chance to get a proper chance to see how bad the car was........I think James May may have washed it at some stage with a 1950,s sponge he has in his shed....

It wasnt pretty for such a beautiful car....

Infact for such a beautiful car and the fact they are not short of a million pounds i was gobsmacked...

He then spotted a really bad and quite deep scratch across the rear panel which he said would need special treatment on it......


He then decided to check the paint depth across the car and found that it was pretty consistent at around 180 microns across the board and did not need uploading to laptop.....He expected this as the other Bugattis he has done were identical........You pays your money you get perfection!!!


Next was masking.....

He was particularly fussy about the Bugatti badge and made me redo it twice as he was insistent that the badge be masked side aswell and not touch the paintwork...

Now the car was masked up he started what he does best....


He worked his way round the car...

He left a patch of light unmasked as he wanted to test before doing rear and headlight correction!


He inspected the bad scratch and decided that he would wet sand it by hand rather than machine.....

He said that he needed to get the scratch out without damaging the paintwork and then correct it so the area looked untouched....

He then wetsanded...

A final buffing..

And the scratch was gone....


As you can see these are the half and half test shots he did..


Lets put it this way:

The veyron is electronically limited to 253 mph.....

It will only take the engine 12 minutes to drink all the fuel when the car is running flat out...

It takes 2.5 seconds to get to 60 from a standstill and only 7 to get to 125 mph.......

INFACT this is such an awesome engine that if a Maclaren F1 raced past at 120 mph and the bugatti was standing still the bugatti from a standing start at full acceleration would beat the Maclaren F1 to 200 mph....UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!

The seven speed DSG transmission can handle 1106 lb ft more than the Veyron developes.....

Oh and if you can afford one the fuel bill at full pelt is astronomical as it gets 2.3 mpg........Fantastic!!!!

Anyway onto this wonderful engine.....

This W16 alloy engine developed by Bugatti for the Veyron 16.4 has a special place in history as its design employs a space saving VR principle with 2 slender eight cylinder blocks arranged at a 90 degrees angle to each other.......

The aluminium was quite badly tarnished and needed some work on it....


The next stage was to hd cleanse the car ready for the zymol Royale....

Then onto wax....


Now the car was ready for the Royale...

The car was looking absolutely fantastic and the two tone black and dark green was showing a massive contrast of hue...


Just look at this attention to detail...

The radio was out of this world and someone loves shine fm?

Just look at these pedals and they feel even funnier under foot......

And the seats....


The engine bay...

And one final buff before we took some reflection shots.......


I'm in
