I would definitely use fondant, and to be more specific MMF, it tastes so much better.
Carving the cake in layers is the best way to get a detailed look (body and wheel wells on one layer, and windshield and top on the next). Some people like to freeze their cakes so that they can have a stiffer media to work with but I think it affects the taste too much.

Depending on how many people you will be serving, will determine your carving size and amount of layers and the complexity of support for the substructure.

Bugatti is a race/production car and it would look cool if the cake was a banking turn and the car was tilted on the track.
Is this the Veyron that they want? Because that car is really slick and low to the ground. And a bigger car would present better, so all the detail can be seen.
