The new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse boasts a remarkable maximum torque of 1,500 Nm (at 3,000–5,000 rpm) from the 7.9-liter capacity of its W16 engine. The maximum output (1,200 hp) is reached at 6,400 rpm.
These figures allow the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from standing in unbelievable 2.6 seconds. The top speed of 410 km/h (255 mph) makes the four-wheel drive Vitesse (like all Veyrons) the fastest production roadster ever. The maximum speed is reached on closed tracks with special safety precautions. In “normal” handling mode, the Vitesse is electronically limited to 375 km/h (233 mph).
There is no end to the individualization options for the Bugatti. Each one of the more than 300 Veyrons built is therefore unique. The upper area of the body is finished in “Bianco” including the roof area and the air scoops. The lower body panels (side skirting, front spoiler, radiator grille frame and rear apron with diffusor), the inner surfaces of the wheel rims and the underside of the automatically extending rear spoiler are in “New Light Blue.” The interior is largely out of a noble Cognac leather building a contrast to the extrovert exterior colors. This Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse version costs 1.74 million euros.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport was unveiled at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2008. The first Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (chassis 001) was sold at auction for charity. Significant modifications have been made to this expensive vehicle's complex construction to make possible open-top driving, thereby adding a new dimension to this super sports car.
The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is one of the most expensive car that you can buy on the market today. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is built by Volkswagen AG subsidiary Bugatti Automobiles SAS at their headquarters in Château St. Jean in Molsheim (Alsace, France) and is sold under the illustrious Bugatti marque. The car has a proven top speed of over 429 km/h (267 mph). Bugatti is the fastest accelerating car reaching 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds.
The car is named after racing driver Pierre Veyron, who won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti firm. The Bugatti Veyron has a W16 engine—16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders.
