What do Bugatti's new hyper car and a golf ball have in common? Well... apparently their aerodynamics. That's right Bugatti designers took inspiration from a design thats over 100 years old! On the roof of the Bolide's hood scoop is a "morphable outer skin" that Bugatti says will help the Bolide reach speeds upwards of 300mph. But if you're like Jerry you might be questioning if this golf ball inspired aero is really all it's cracked up to be. Find out, on todays episode of Bumper to Bumper.

  • I've always wondered why companies haven't done the dimpling on cars after seeing the effects on MythBusters. Automotive companies are trying to find ways to increase range/MPG, I felt like dimpling would be an easy fix. But I'm not an engineer.

  • Crazy thing about that Merc flipping, it happened twice in the same weekend at Le Mans. Mercedes race engineers told Peter Dumbreck (other Merc driver, the one that flipped in the clip shown) not to follow another car too closely because that's how Mark Webber's car flipped the first time.

  • I do CFD for the aerospace industry and I can without a doubt say those golf ball manufacturers by far know more about aerodynamics than Boeing, Space X, or any automotive industry. They are trying to maximize efficiency by reducing drag because they have no mean of propulsion. The have all the energy the ball has to move at the moment of impact. Edit: after posting I realized you guys probably don't know what CFD is. Computational Fluid Dynamics

  • ... but the reason the dimpled golf ball goes further is because it's spinning. Having dimples that don't move won't do a thing.

  • navy uses golf ball dimple technology on it's submarines. there is a thick layer of rubber type coating on the hull with tiny dimples which reduces drag through the water. that means it's faster for same propulsion output and therefore more economical to run. it also reduces the noise the sub makes passes through the water which makes it harder to track with sonar. moreover it changes the way the water flows over the propeller as it comes of back of the hull. this then reduces the cavitation of the propeller helping to make the sub quieter again. the benefits go on and on. the less amount of cavitation means the prop is also getting a better drive in the water, increasing speed and economy again. I should try to make my car faster by gluing golf balls to roof??? put dimples on everything!!! lol.

  • It's genius marketing though. What is the premier sport played by the super rich? Golf. These people will spend absurd amounts of money to try and take one less stroke per round of 18 holes. From specialised Golf Shoes, Gloves, to the Clubs, Balls, etc. It's all about putting the greatest amount of Power and Precision into a swing whilst fine tuning Grip and Aerodynamics of every part involved. This means when they go to sit down at the club house they can confidently explain in a meaningful way why their Hyper Car is better than their mates Hyper Car.
