The Vitesse is the SuperSport version of the Bugatti Grand Sport. Or, it’s the convertible version of the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport. Either way, it expands the Bugatti range even further. what started out as a technical showcase of what’s possible in a road-going car, turned into one of the best money-making machines for VW.

It’s amazing, no other car manufacturer has yet managed to make anything like this car. Well, there’s the American SSC, but their old model, the Aero, was, to put it gently, crap. And the new Tuatara is yet to be let out of the cage and put through its paces. So the Bugga is still the king of the hill in the small world of hyper cars.

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-litre 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 (like all Veyrons) Grand Sport Vitesse the fastest production roadster ever.

In “normal” handling mode, the Grand Sport Vitesse is electronically limited to 375 km/h (233 mph).

The price of this car is as fantastic as the way it gathers speed. It costs 1.79 million euros.
