Revealed at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this year, The Grand Sport Vitesse is the latest member of Bugatti’s family of hyper cars. it is basically a drop-top version of the Veyron SuperSport, powered by the same 1,200 hp, 1,500 Nm torque W16 engine. Because it’s a convertible, it’s a tad slower though. It accelerates fro 0 to 100km/h in 2,6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 410 km/h.
Bugatti has put together a very nice promo video for the car. Set it on 1080 and enjoy:
The classic Grand Sport, a sports car with an elegant, artistic orientation, will, of course, remain in the range. Following the success of the L’Or Blanc (created in cooperation with Berlin-based porcelain makers Königlichen Porzellan-Manufaktur), Bugatti is currently working on further unusual ways to individualize the Grand Sport. In Geneva, the world’s most exclusive car manufacturer is presenting a version of the roadster in visible carbon fibre in a brownish finish for the first time. One challenge for the production is to give the visible carbon a transparent gleam while allowing the colour to radiate vibrantly in a certain light. On the Grand Sport presented in Geneva, the carbon parts made in the new colour “Brown” (lids, rear end, front spoiler and side skirting) shimmer in an almost bronze shade depending on how the light falls. To create a contrast, the side parts on this Grand Sport, right up to the rear air intakes, are made from polished aluminium. The interior of the sports car, with “Gaucho” coloured leather and dark stitching (colour “Coffee”), complements the exterior. It costs 1.79 million euros.
